MoviefiedNYC’s Movies Opening in July

Johnny Depp and Armie Hanmmer – The Lone Ranger
OH it is HOT outside! The next two months are when we all, at times, lower our standards and go see almost any movie to get out of the heat. And you know what? Producers know this so beware my savvy MoviefiedNYC moviegoers they have got our number and on occasion try to sneak in a real clunker, even with some big star’s name attached. So buyer/viewer beware a little more than usual in July and August. Don’t forget to click on the movie title to view the trailers. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

July 3

Despicable Me 2 (3D)

Despicable Me made us laugh and sent its producers laughing to the bank with $540 million! Will this minion madness beat that? 

Why do I feel this movie is all about Tonto?

July 5

Epic, violent, Viking journey.

The Way, Way Back

The Way, Way Back (Limited)

Steve Carell, Toni Collette and Sam Rockwell and written/directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (The Descendants). I’m in for this indie darling.

Greg Kinnear obsessing over ex-wife Jennifer Connelly.

I would require Death Valley level heat to go see this.

Based on a true story…aren’t they all.

Elite operatives track down a missing portable nuclear device. Why do we make nuclear devices portable?  

Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds – R.I.P.D.

Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds star in the supernatural action-adventure, R.I.P.D., as cops from the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living. Looks like it would be a great TV series.  

Blackfish (Limited)
This chilling Sundance documentary focuses primarily on one whale named Tilikum, that was responsible for the deaths of three people while it was held in captivity. A real world thriller that an entire industry doesn’t want you see.
Produced by Errol Morris (Thin Blue Line) and Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man). In this documentary, the filmmakers examine a country where death squad leaders are celebrated as heroes, challenging them to reenact their real-life mass killings in the style of the American movies they love.
The Act of Killing 

Kristen Wiig stars as a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to moving back home to Jersey.

Ryan Gosling and the director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) are back with this visionary Bangkok-set thriller.

July 26

Hugh Jackman – The Wolverine 3D
The To Do List is a comedy about close friends and a special summer project. “Featuring an all-star comedy cast” are still some of the scariest words in the English language to me. Go at your own risk.

Hugh Jackman returns as Wolverine and he fights ninjas this time out as he did in the 1980s miniseries dealing with the character’s adventures in Japan.

Blue Jasmine (Limited)
A little  Woody Allen for the summer with Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin and Peter Sarsgaard. Could be promising.
The Smurfs 2

July 31
The Smurfs 2 (3D)

More blue little people. Except for the evil ones of course. They are brunettes.
