So here are the films that we think you must not miss when they come out this month...

Spider-Man: Far From Home - 5th July

The next Spidey movie follows on from Avengers: Endgame, as Peter Parker has to deal with one of the biggest MCU deaths, as well as a school trip to Europe.

But his European adventure is interupted by Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury and news that Thanos's snap interrupted more universes than just the one we know.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as top Spidey comic book character Mysterio, in what is set to top Homecoming in terms of scale, VFX and enjoyable web-slinging fun.

The Lion King - 19th July

A couple of months after Aladdin's release, Disney's attempt to turn all of its much-loved films into live-action retellings sees The Lion King hit cinemas.

Boasting a star-packed voice cast including Donald Glover, Beyoncé, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Seth Rogn and a returning James Earl Jones amongst its line-up, and Jon Favreau in the director's chair.

Favreau has history for making some live-action gold in the form of 2016's Jungle Book remake, and with its stunning cast, if the live-action version is able to capture the fans in the same was as the hugely-adored animated classic, then this could be a runaway success.

Midsommar - 5th July

After terrifying audiences in 2018 with Hereditary, director Ari Aster is back with another unsettling horror.

Dani (Fighting With My Family's Florence Pugh) and Christian (Sing Street's Jack Reynor) attempt to sort out their ailing relationship by joining their friends on a trip to a small village in rural Sweden to attend a festival that occurs once every 90 years. Things go downhill very quickly as the Americans are forced to join in the disturbing pagan rituals by the locals.

It has already been much heralded by critics who have seen it, as Aster's hallucinaotry Swedish folk-horror could be the most disturbing film of the year.

Stuber - 12th July

Dave Bautista plays a grizzled detective on the hunt of a sadistic terrorist, although he is unable to drive thanks to some recent lazer eye surgery.

His solution, order an Uber, driven by the mild-mannered Stu (Kumail Nanjiani), who is just trying to get a five-star rating from each of his passenger.

A classic 'odd couple' action film featuring two actors currently at the peak of their comedic powers, this could be an unexpected candidate for the funniest film of the summer.
