Coming Soon: July 2015

It's Sunday, which means I should technically be uploading the latest bunch of film reviews for The Ciné File, but as I've only seen Terminator Genisys this week (and it's so bad it's not exactly going to be a long review...) a round-up of the best films to see in July seemed more appropriate.

July (July! It was March a few days ago!) is a month of summer blockbusters, from an unnecessary reboot of the Terminator franchise; to the latest Marvel superhero to hit the big screen, Ant-Man; to another dose of high octane Tom Cruise action in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. It's also a month of sequels, with the return of the Thunder Buddies in Ted 2, and six-packs and stripping galore in Magic Mike XXL.

From the wildly entertaining to the critically acclaimed, there's also the Sundance success Dear White People; the hotly anticipated Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy, from the director of Senna; Jake Gyllenhaal beefs up in gritty boxing drama Southpaw; and Pixar hits another home run with the highly intelligent, funny and ultimately touching cerebral tale, Inside Out. I saw a preview a few weeks ago and it's fully deserving of 5*, so if you only see one film this month then make it this one!

All films below are released in cinemas in July in the U.K.: some may have already opened abroad so if you're outside the U.K. then do check your local cinemas for film times and release dates.

Personally, I'm very excited to see True Story, Southpaw and Dear White People this month, and as it's blockbuster season I suppose it'd be rude not to watch Ant-Man and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation too! Plus, I can't lie, I'm really looking forward to seeing Magic Mike XXL this week...
