10 Movies You Should See in July.

The order is not important, being set by the release date:


Despicable Me 2

Despicable Me, the animated supervillain comedy from 2010, was an average flick with a neat enough premise. In Despicable Me 2, it’s gone. You see, Steve Carell’s bald, beaky hero, Gru, is now a reformed soul, occupied with round-the-clock childcare rather than dastardly plots to steal the moon and whatnot. The withdrawal of his evil motives is so complete that the movie’s very title feels like a misnomer – what we get this time is Grumpy Old Me at best, or Secretly Lovable Me, or Doting Me. And none of these “Me”s are very much fun.



The Lone Ranger

A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty Hi-Yo Silver! The Lone Ranger! ... With his faithful Indian companion Tonto, the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains led the fight for law and order in the early western United States! … Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear! From out of the past come the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver! The Lone Ranger rides again!


Grown Ups 2

Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade and the rest of the gang may be all grown up, but there are some new young hotties coming to town to steam up the screen in Grown Ups 2.


Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim is a big bet for Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros., with early tracking numbers suggesting the movie could have a soft opening. But Pacific Rim doesn’t open until July 12, which gives the Warners marketing machine time to raise awareness among U.S. audiences.



Turbo the snail wants to live life in the fast lane. When a radioactive reaction grants him his wish, he sets his sights on the Indy 500. The makers of "Madagascar" and "Kung Fu Panda" show how far a little fella can go with faith and fortune.


Red 2

Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) is dragged out of retirement once again in "Red 2," but stopping a nuclear weapon and fighting off Helen Mirren's assassin Victoria are only the start of his problems.



Those who agree with Will Smith when he says three Men in Black movies are enough (for him, anyway), might want to try and get their fix of buddy action-comedy entertainment from a different comic book movie franchise. The upcoming R.I.P.D. is based on a Dark Horse graphic novel written by Peter M. Lenkov and pairs Ryan Reynolds opposite Jeff Bridges, as mismatched – and deceased – police officers, who protect the living people on Earth from the dangerous and bizarre evil spirits that’ve refused to move into the afterlife.


The Wolverine

Based on the celebrated comic book arc by Chris Claremont & Frank Miller, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Knight and Day) is directing The Wolverine from a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback who are adapting the classic 1982 story arc in the Wolverine comics, which takes our favorite Marvel mutant all the way to Japan. 20th Century Fox is releasing James Mangold's The Wolverine in theaters everywhere July 26th this summer.


Europa Report

Set in a post-NASA future when space travel has become a matter of private enterprise, the film concerns the Europa One, a $3.7 billion manned spaceship sent to explore the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa. (The premise was inspired by the November 2011 discovery of lakes beneath Europa’s frozen surface.)


The Smurfs 2

The Smurfs team up with their human friends to rescue Smurfette, who has been kidnapped by Gargamel since she knows a secret spell that can turn the evil sorcerer's newest creation.
