Honestly, where did the time go? Before you know it, we’ve already passed six months into 2017 and we’re now entering July.
We’ve had some great movies that premiered during the first half of the year, some controversial ones and some that, umm, fell short of everyone’s expectation (hint: Transformers).
So, to continue the momentum of great movies this year, here are five must-watch movies you should definitely catch this month.
#1 Spider-Man: Homecoming
Prepare to get your spidey-senses tingling as your favourite web-slinging superhero returns to the silver screen. After his brief introduction in Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker returns to living with Aunt May under the watch of his new mentor, Tony Stark a.k.a Iron Man. Can Peter try to stay low as advised by his mentor while concealing his hidden identity?
Cast: Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau
Premieres: 6 July 2017
#2 War for the Planet of the Apes
If you’re a huge fan of the Planet of the Apes movie series, then this one’s for you. An epic battle is about to take place between the apes led by Caeser against an army of humans led by a merciless Colonel.
Cast: Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Gabriel Chavarria, Judy Greer
Premieres: 13 July 2017
#3 Baby Driver
One of the most anticipated action movies this year, the Baby Driver is set to race straight into your hearts. Don’t be fooled by the name of the movie as the trailer itself promises nothing short of jam-packed, adrenaline pumping action. And did we mention that this movie received a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes? So don’t miss it!
Cast: Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey, Eiza González
Premieres: 20 July 2017
#4 Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Sci-fi movie junkies, this movie is something that should be on the top of your movie wish list this month. Time-traveling agents Valerian (Dane DeHann) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are sent on a mission to the intergalactic city of Alpha. The movie sure has the Guardians of The Galaxy and Avatar feel and look, but its storyline definitely sets it apart from the other two movie franchises.
Cast: Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Ethan Hawke, Clive Owen, Rihanna, John Goodman
Premieres: 20 July 2017
#5 The Doll 2
If you’re still recovering from the nightmares you had watching the first installation of The Doll, well a new sequel is back to haunt you. If you’ve only first heard of this movie, think of it as the Asian Anabelle where a child spirit takes over a doll and haunts her family. Indonesian horror movies are notoriously known to really creep you out, so beware, you have been warned.
Cast: Herjunot Ali, Luna Maya, Sara Wijayanto
Premieres: 27 July 2017
