Ten new movie releases you need to know about this month

July’s biggest, best and trending films

1

Dunkirk

‘What’s a Dunkirk?’ Some Harry Styles fans expressed their befuddlement on social media when they found out their fave One Directioner was to appear in Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic. Nolan has been saying that ‘Dunkirk’ is ‘not a war film’. Instead, he’s calling it ‘a survival story’. Either way, it’s one of the most hotly anticipated films of the summer. Out on July 21

Spider-Man: Homecoming

The all-new nerdier, weedier Spider-Man, played by 21-year-old Londoner Tom Holland, was a highlight of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ last year. So we’re expecting good things from his standalone debut. This reboot around, Spidey is a teenager, exploring his powers under the mentorship of sarky Avenger Tony Stark. Out on July 5

War for the Planet of the Apes

‘Apes do not want war!’ growled simian leader Caesar (Andy Serkis) in the last movie. Well, he’s got one in the third film in the rebooted ‘Apes’ franchise. 'War’ finds the apes taking on a human army led by Woody Harrelson’s general. It’s amazing – unexpectedly emotional with awe-inspiring special effects. Out on July 11

It Comes At Night

This terrifying post-apocalyptic thriller will haunt your dreams for weeks (according to our reviewer, it should come with a heart-attack warning). Like Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Road’, it’s set after the breakdown of society, in a house where two families have barricaded themselves against ‘the sick’ – humans infected by a deadly plague. Out on July 7

The Big Sick

This girlfriend-in-a-coma romcom is loosely based on true story – how ‘Silicon Valley’ actor Kumail Nanjiani met his wife Emily V Gordon (they’ve co-written the script). Nanjiani stars as himself, a comedian who falls in love with a student (Emily, played by Zoe Kazan), but can’t tell his Pakistani parents he’s with a non-Muslim. Out on July 28

The Beguiled

A remake of a Clint Eastwood Civil War movie is the last thing you’d expect from Sofia Coppola. But her version of the story of a wounded soldier nursed back to health at a boarding school for girls is told from the female point of view. Her A-team cast includes Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Nicole Kidman, with Colin Farrell playing the soldier. Out on July 14

David Lynch: The Art Life

The man himself narrates this up-close-and-personal doc featuring home-movie footage. This is the story of Lynch’s childhood and early career, from a squeakily wholesome childhood in the Midwest via art school to becoming the chronicler of a dark, twisted vision of America. Out on July 14

Don’t miss the chance to see the 25th anniversary restoration of James Ivory’s elegant 1982 adaptation of EM Forster’s tale of families, love and class on the big screen.

I was lucky enough to catch an advance screening of this movie, and I was extremely glad I did. After watching the previews I felt as though a lot of the movie was given away, but I was blown away by the performances on screen. The movie was centered around a champion prize fighter hitting rock bottom, and slowly climbing his way back into the ring. It was an emotional journey that cannot simply be categorized as a movie about boxing, but rather, an inspiring and riveting tale of parenthood and a father's love for his daughter. The cast was excellent and everyone excelled in their roles. I wouldn't have expected to like Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson in a role as much as I did. Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker had Oscar worthy performances. Everyone did a great job with their roles. The cinematography was fantastic, and the fight scenes gave some great first person shots that made you feel as though you were there in the ring fighting along side the actors. Overall, this movie is an experience that is not to be missed

Schoenarts is amazing in 'Rust and Bone' as well, with Marainne Cotillard. By the way he's Belgian, not Dutch, and it not too hard to pronounce if you ignore the spelling - shone (rhymes with bone) arts - shone-arts .
