  • The 5 cinema releases that you need to watch in July

As July rolls around, we have the big budget releases coming thick and fast with no less than four films expecting to earn big at the box office.

As well as that, there are some great and interesting new releases that you need to be hitting your local cinema to watch this month...

Spider-Man: Homecoming  - 7th July

The hugely-awaited team-up of the Spidey-owning Sony with the MCU-making Marvel and it looks like we will have the best Spider-Man film since at least Spider-Man 2.

Tom Holland dons the skin-tight lycra, with the help of some of Tony Stark's gadgets to go up against crime boss The Vulture, played by Michael Keaton - himself no stranger to the superhero franchise.

Expect all of the action and fun that Marvel does well, as Tom Holland may well become your new favourite Peter Parker.

War For The Planet of the Apes - 14th July

The final instalment in the underrated Planet of the Apes trilogy sees Caesar lead his nation of genetically-evolved apes into battle against an army of humans.

Mo-cap king Andy Serkis brings his characterisation to Caesar, while Woody Harrelson plays his opposite, a soldier obsessed with killing the apes' leader.

With glowing reception from early screenings, it has been regarded as an excellent conclusion to the film trilogy.

Dunkirk - 21st July

The latest hotly-anticipated Christopher Nolan blockbuster, telling the story of the evacuation of Allied soldiers who were surrounded by the German Army on the beaches of Dunkirk in World War II.

Boasting an incredible cast, including Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy and newcomers Fionn Whitehead and Harry Styles, expect both things from both cast and crew.

Already labelled a bumper success by the 'Nolanites' before it has even been released, the director's pedigree would predict that this will be the blockbuster we all expect.

The Beguiled - 14th July

Sofia Coppola directs the adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan's novel A Painted Devil - the story of an injured Civil War soldier being taken into a girls' school, as the sexual tension and rivalries come to a head with the introduction of the young man into the lives of the sheltered young women.

The film wowed at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and Coppola won the Best Director for the romantic drama which stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning.

Having previously crafted incredible characters and stories in her previous films including The Bling Ring and Lost in Translation, expect a dramatic, tension-filled masterpiece.

Cars 3 - 14th July

Lightning McQueen returns for a third adventure on the track, but this time things are different - the once-formidable racer now finds himself overshadowed by a new generation of faster race cars who look set to leave him in the dust.

The Cars films aren't regarded as highly as other Pixar classics like Monsters Inc. or Toy Story, but there's no denying that Lightning McQueen and his four-wheeled pals are a huge part of Pixar's success.
