If you’re not a fan of the sun, then stay indoors and watch our great premieres this July. We’ve got some scorchers.

 

Moana - 29 July

 

Moana is another example of how far animation has come in producing movies that are for every member of the family, from kids to adults. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson stars as demigod Maui who causes a terrible curse to affect all the Pacific islands and it’s down to Moana to answer the Ocean's call to seek him out and set things right. The Oscar nominated animation is great fun and a movie for the whole family to enjoy

Dr Strange – 28 July

 

Marvel bring us another great superhero movie in the shape of Dr Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The movie follows the journey of Stephen Strange, whose life turns upside down after a car accident robs him of the use of his hands. With no help from traditional medicine, Strange takes things into his… own hands so to speak and looks at alternative means to help with his healing.

 

When he finds an unconventional method from the world of mystic arts, the Dr has a big decision to make that not only affects him but the whole world. Cumberbatch is brilliant in the lead role and he’s ably backed up by a stellar supporting cast of Mads Mikkelson, Rachel McAdams and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The secret life of pets – 22 July

 

And here's another great animated film this month with. The movie follows the story of a spoilt terrier named Max, who has a life of luxury. He’s loving the New York lifestyle and seems comfortable with the world. This all changes when his owner takes in Duke, a stray whom Max instantly dislikes.

 

Max is voiced by the hilarious Lois CK and he and him and Duke only think about themselves, until they have to band together after they join a bunny called Snowball (Kevin Hart) and join his gang of abandoned pets on a mission against the humans who've done them wrong. With the team behind the Despicable Me movies looking over proceedings you just know this will be good!

Popstar: Never stop never stopping – 14 July

 

Popstar is a mockumentary style comedy where Andy Samberg plays failing musician Conner who first found fame with boy band Style Boyz. After the band split up, Conner enjoyed a successful solo career, but it all came crashing down when it became clear that his new solo album would be a failure. As his career and world is coming crashing down a former boy band member does everything in his power to maintain his celebrity status.

 

This hilarious comedy has Samberg re-unite with the director (Akiva Schaffer) with whom he’s worked with on Hot Rod and many other projects. Both director and star are fully aware of themselves and the industry they portray which makes for a very funny movie. Expect catchy songs, hilarious set-pieces and a truckload of amazing A-list cameos. It’s the modern day Spinal Tap with a twist.

Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children – 21 July

 

The wonderful mind of Tim Burton brings us a new adventure, surrounding a boy called Jake who discovers clues around a mystery, going back centuries which leads him to Miss Peregrine (Eva Green) and her home for peculiar children.

 

It’s only then where the mystery and danger deepens as Jake gets to know the residents and the powers they possess.

Jake’s new friends have terrifying enemies and it becomes apparent that only his own special peculiarity can save him and them. If you enjoyed the novel, you will love this movie.

Anyway have a great day.

 

Really enjoyed "Moana" Dwayne Johnson was excellent and i thought his voice over of the character was funny.

 

Meaning to watch "Ballers" on NowTV is Dwayne Johnson any good or funny in this comedy drama, would anybody recommend watching this TV show ?
