I am a little taken a back that we have reached July and there are only three maybe four movies that I really enjoyed (Sing Street, 10 Cloverfield Lane, The Lobster and Captain America: Civil War). I look to July with some hope with Life, Animated, Captain Fantastic, Café Society and finally The Secret Life of Pets opening, lets see how we fare. 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.
