A tonne of new movies are coming this July, and for movie buffs Oz-wide they couldn’t come faster if they tried.
Srsly, we’ve been patiently waiting three years for the second instalment of the somewhat underrated Ant-Man franchise. Plus, don’t even get me started on the wait for Mamma Mia‘s sequel. Enough’s enough.
Have a squiz at some of the biggest movies coming soon:
‘Ant-Man & The Wasp’
The casting genius who gave Paul Rudd the chance to lead a Marvel movie as a teeny tiny superhero needs a bloody payrise.
Ant-Man & The Wasp sees Rudd’s Scott Lang balancing parenthood while teaming up with The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) to pull off an undisclosed mission that – if it’s similar to the first movie – will undoubtedly be full of 10/10 one-liners that separate Ant-Man from your run-of-the-mill Marvel outing.
Box office juggernaut Dwayne ‘in-every-movie-ever’ Johnson stars as Will Sawyer, an FBI Hostage Team Leader who has been framed for messing with Hong Kong‘s safest skyscraper – and by ‘messing’ I mean setting it on fire like an overachieving arsonist.
If you like experiencing severe vertigo, this action-packed blockbuster won’t disappoint.
MUSE: Drone World Tour
Touted as ‘the greatest show on earth’, Muse‘s 2015/16 Drone World Tour will be screening in cinemas worldwide for one night only.
If you’re not the biggest Muse fan, the use of autonomous drones throughout the show might just be enough to get you intrigued regardless. Can’t really fault a good drone spectacle, ey?
‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’
Event Cinemas are reprising their Chicks at the Flicks night where you gather your crew of gals for an advanced screening of a select movie (and a free gift bag to boot).
Going down on July 18th, this month’s flick of choice is Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which reunites Amanda Seyfried and Meryl Streep with the soundtrack of ABBA, and that’s all anyone should need to get excited.
‘The Breaker Upperers’
I see Taika Waititi‘s name attached to anything and I buy tickets, merch, flights to his house and a lawyer for my inevitable restraining order.
Waititi’s the executive producer behind The Breaker Upperers, a twisted comedy about two women who run a break-up service for people who want to get out of their relationship with minimal effort and maximum results. Sounds like that type of service could be handy in real life, tbh.
While its nationwide release is slated for July 26th, there’ll be a special Q&A screening with the writers, directors and stars Madeleine Sami and Jackie van Beek in Sydney on July 20th and Brisbane on July 18th.
‘Mission Impossible: Fallout’
At this point, Tom Cruise‘s beloved alter-ego Ethan Hunt will be 100 years old and still flinging himself off of buildings with as much gusto as an Olympic pole-vaulter.
The sixth Mission Impossible instalment recruits some ‘uge names – Henry Cavill and Alec Baldwin to name a couple – for a classic ‘race against time’ sitch that will be sure to cause excessive sweating and nail-biting.
If you miss out on the advance screening on July 27th, catch its nationwide release on August 2nd. Get tix here. <Hyperlink needed>
