Summer Means Plenty of Great Movie Options

Well, it’s finally here! Summer lovin’, fireworks, and blockbuster movies itching to make history in the box office of 2021. 

Speaking of which, we’ll be kicking it off by announcing upcoming movies that we should look forward to for the month of July.

For those looking for movies rated PG, there is one in particular to look forward to in the month of July:

“Space Jam: A New Legacy”

The 25-year long awaited sequel to the 90s classic with Michael Jordan is finally here. 

No doubt it will be filled with classic cartoon cameos like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and many more. There are  even rumors that Jim Carrey’s “The Mask” will make an appearance in this family friendly film. 

“Space Jam: A New Legacy” is expected to come out in theaters as well as on HBO Max on Friday July 16.

Moving on to an older demographic, here are some PG-13 movies to look forward to:   

1. “Black Widow”

This Marvel cinematic movie was initially supposed to come out in theaters May of 2020, but due to the pandemic, it pushed back its theater and Disney Plus Premier Access release date to July 9. 

It stars Scarlett Johansson, Midsomer’s Florence Pugh, and David Harbour from “Stranger Things.” Filled with 2 hours and 13 minutes of nonstop superhero action, it’s sure to keep you on the edge of your seats or couches.

2 “The Tomorrow War”

Chris Pratt from “Guardians of the Galaxy” is recruited and sent forward in time to fight alien invaders that bring a threat to the earth’s future. This film comes out July 2nd only on Amazon Prime Video. 

3. “Jungle Cruise”

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson gets lost in the jungle yet again, but this time it is with Emily Blunt from “A Quiet Place.” They must find a tree that has the key to supernatural healing factors for mankind. “The Jungle Cruise” comes out July 30.

4. “Old”

M. Night Shaymalan came out with his 18th film which has a group of tourists marooned on an island that has a mysterious past and a scary future for the remaining survivors. “Old” comes out July 23.

Next we have a movie for our more mature audiences, here is a rated R movie to look forward to in the month of July: 

The Forever Purge

The fifth installment in The Purge Franchise is continuing its horrific and patriotic theme July 2. This is expected to be chock full of gratuitous violence, gore galore, and language.

I hope you enjoyed this July line up of movies, and I hope you have a safe and eventful Fourth of July!
