Top 10 Upcoming Movies In July 2015 | We Cannot Wait To Watch This Summer
Summers are a heart-wrenching time on all of us as the heat, dirt, sun, and sweat drains away all our energy and we cannot wait to run into an air-conditioned room and stay there till winters come knocking. Well, we may not have a solution to drop down the heat but we have a list of some really amazing movies you can watch this summer whilst sitting in the A/C and having a blast. So, here we go.
- Mr Holmes (July 17): Based on the novel A Slight Trick of the Mind written by Mitch Cullin, the movie stars the talented Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes. There has been various versions of the Sherlock canon played by different actors but this is the first time where the character of Sherlock is being portrayed at the age of 93. The movie is much-anticipated as the audience cannot wait to watch McKellen bring out a new perspective of Holmes.
- Minions (July 10): A prequel/spin-off to Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2, the movie tells the story of the small, yellow creatures who evolved from single cellular organisms into proper beings only with the purpose of serving the biggest villains in the history. Pierre Coffin will return to voice the characters of Kevin, Stuart, Bob and the Minion Tribe, and the fans could not be more excited.
- Magic Mike XXL (July 1): Styled as MMXXL, the movie is a sequel to Magic Mike and brings together Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Joe Manganiello as they play the role of male strippers. The plot carries on forward as three years after retirement, Mike and the remaining Kings of Tampa plan to put on one last show for old time’s sake. With all these new photos of the cast shirtless, no wonder the wait for the movie seems too agonizing.
- Ant-Man (July 17): 12th installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the posters of the movie were released recently which resulted in excitement among fans. The idea of the movie, which stars Paul Rudd as the protagonist, was first developed in 2006, three drafts of the script was finalized by 2011 and the test footage was shot in 2012. The story is set after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron where Scott Lang is helping Dr Hank Pym in safeguarding the mystery of the Ant-Man technology, which allows its user to decrease in size but increase in strength.
- Southpaw (July 24): The name of this movie is familiar to Eminem fans as the rapper was first cast to play the protagonist and the fans were awaiting new news about it for months, but he eventually dropped out from the project (but is still producing the soundtrack) and was replaced by Jake Gyllenhaal. It is a tale of a boxing champion who fights his way back after losing everything. The Brokeback Mountain star has transformed himself to take on his role as light heavyweight champion Billy Hope, with scars, tattoos, muscles and a blood-soaked face.
- Terminator: Genisys (July 1): Simply referred to as Terminator 5, Arnold Schwarzenegger reprises his role as the eponymous character. The plot shakes the last four films and their stories as the older Terminator fights with the past version of himself, changing the storyline.
- Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (July 1): Based on the novel by Jesse Andrews, the story tracks the life of Greg Gaines as he is forced to befriend Rachel, a girl in his class who is diagnosed with cancer. But worry not! It is not some sappy cancer love story and neither will it try to teach you superficial, profound things about life. It is the plain truth and sometimes, that is a great way to tell a story.
- Ted 2 (June 26): Sequel to the original Ted, the movie once again brings Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane as best friends who tell a story which is filled with the same dumb but brilliant humour. John, now a bachelor, struggles with his love life as Ted, the teddy bear, is having marital issues and his decision to have children opens the story to an entirely new plot.
- Paper Towns (July 24): The movie already has a heavy fan-base, being based on a novel by John Green and allowing supermodel Cara Delevingne make her début into acting. The story follows the protagonist Quentin, usually called Q, having an adventurous night with Margo, carrying out her revenge plans on all who have wronged her, but the problem appears when she goes missing the next day and Q is left with just a handful of clues to find her.
- Ricki and the Flash (August 7): The movie stars Meryl Streep, Sebastian Stan, and Kevin Kline, and the biggest selling point is that Streep plays the character of a rock star and we can only imagine how brilliantly she is going to rock that role. As Cameron from Modern Family once said, Meryl Streep could play Batman and still be the right choice.
