July arrives fully loaded with sexy (Magic Mike XXL), funny (Trainwreck), dramatic (Jimmy’s Hall) and some major action (Terminator: Genisys and Mission Impossible 5) movies. Not to mention that we are entering a time we will come to know as the Gyllenhaal-aissance, it began last year with Night Crawler and continues with Southpaw. So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
