July 2014 - Movie Blog PostHappy July everyone!  Here in Detroit we are expecting this month to be hot and humid.  I am planning to duck the humidity in the movie theater… a girl has to have a few good hair days.  There are several great movies I am excited to see this month, from a Disney sequel to a funny comedy starring the hilarious Melissa McCarthy.  Here are my four must see picks with trailers to get you pumped.  Please leave a comment and let me know which you are intrigued to see.

Tammy – July 2nd                                                                                                                                                 A comedy starring the hilarious Melissa McCarthy…just hearing her name makes me laugh.  A bad day for Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) just keeps getting worse.  All in one day she has wrecked her car, caught her husband cheating and lost her job at the burger joint.  Wanting to get away from it all she settles for a vacation with her grandmother Pearl (Susan Sarandon).  The adventure begins with the two of them, we are in for a modern day Thelma and Louise LOL.  Click Tammy to watch the trailer.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – July 11th                                                                                                 The sequel to 2011 Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  Caeser (Andy Serkis) is back, the head primate leading a nation genetically involved apes.  They are threatened by a band of human survivors the of the devastating virus that spreaded ten years ago.  One of the survivors Malcolm (Jason Clarke) has created a bond with the apes but a few others want to kill them for revenge.  A peace bond was short lived, when a all in war begins to determine which species will dominate earth.  I am anticipating this film to be intense with lots of action.  Click to watch this action packed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Planes: Fire and Rescue – July 18th                                                                                                            Another cute film from Disney, the sequel to the 2013 airborne adventure Planes.  Dusty (Dane Cook) the famous airplane racer is facing a career ending injury that prevents him from flying and competing in the Wings Around the World race.  Faced with a career change Dusty returns home and decides to join a flying rescue team called the The Smokejumpers to become an aerial firefighter.  As a team they set out to battle a fierce wildfire in Piston Peak National Park.  A fan of magical creators at Disney, they always make great films that we adults and children can relate too.  I love animation especially when things talk that aren’t human.  Check out the the trailer of Dusty and his the Smokejumpers.

Lucy – July 25th                                                                                                                                                   The action thriller starring Scarlett Johansson as Lucy….its nothing like a female action hero GIRL POWER.  Lucy is accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.  The plot and the trailer has me pumped to see this and Morgan Freeman is starring along with her in this film. Watch and tell me what you think.
