July at the Movies
Maybe the biggest month of the year for movies, and certainly for blockbusters. Barbenheimer itself became it’s own cultural phenomenon – you better bet we pulled that double feature!
Joy Ride – Theaters, July 7th
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One – Theaters, July 12th
Barbie – Theaters, July 21st
Oppenheimer – Theaters, July 21st
August at the Movies
Not much to add for August. Overall a much quieter month – I only got to TMNT (which was quite good and owes a lot to Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse).
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem – Theaters, August 2nd
Head to Head – Netflix, August 3rd
Shortcomings – Theaters, August 3rd
Gran Turismo – Theaters, August 25th

Bottoms – Theaters, September 1st
Haven’t gotten to the theater yet, but Ayo Edebiri’s acting in The Bear made this an easy rec from me.
Expend4bles – Theaters, September 22nd
I’m leaving this on here, but this movie was not good, sadly. I just keep yearning for the campiness of Expendables 2.
The Creator – Theaters, September 29th
This movie looks gorgeous, and I love that a non-IP Sci-Fi epic is still able to be made in the current movie climate. Looking forward to this for sure!
Flora and Son – AppleTV+, September 29th
Another John Carney entry about the importance of music, and I’m definitely here for it. If you saw Once, Begin Again, or Sing Street, you’ll know the type of movie you’re getting in to.
October at the Movies
Foe – Theaters, October 6th
Sci-Fi thriller starring Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal? What did I do to get this lucky?
Reptile – Netflix, October 6th
Benicio del Toro stars in a noir-esque crime thriller. Early buzz from critics isn’t great, but since it’s dropping directly on Netflix, the barrier to entry is *very* low. And Alicia Silverstone!
What Happens Later – Theaters, October 13th
Meg Ryan’s second outing as a director after 2015’s Ithaca. Hearkening back to 90’s romcoms, Ryan stars opposite David Duchovny (I loved him earlier this year in You People) as the ex-lovers get stuck in an airport overnight because of a snow storm.
Killers of the Flower Moon – Theaters, October 20th
Leo, De Niro, Lily Gladstone and directer by Marty Scorsese. That’s the headline.
