Some frights, drama, and shocking truths await us in this week’s movie releases. We take a closer look at what’s hitting cinemas this Friday, 22 July 2016:

Lights Out

Release date: Friday, 22 July 2016

Saw and Insidious director James Wan brings the horror this weekend with Lights Out. The film follows a young woman named Rebecca, who discovers that the supernatural entity that tormented her as a child when the lights went out has returned to haunt her little brother Martin. Now, experiencing the same inexplicable and frightening events that caused her to question her own sanity, the family struggle to unlock the secrets behind the evil being’s mysterious return.

The Free State of Jones

Release date: Friday, 22 July 2016

Matthew McConaughey and Keri Russell star in The Free State of Jones, which takes place after the 1862 Battle of Corinth during the Civil War, and follows a poor yet defiant Mississippi farmer named Newton Knight who led a group of farmers and local slaves in an armed rebellion against the Confederate army. The uprising led Jones County to secede from the Confederacy, allowing Knight to continue his legacy in the Free State of Jones.

Where to Invade Next

Release date: Friday, 22 July 2016

Where to Invade Next is an expansive, rib-tickling, and subversive comedy in which Academy Award-winning director Michael Moore, playing the role of “invader,” visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects. The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine is back with this hilarious and eye-opening call to arms. Turns out the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already exist in the world — they’re just waiting to be co-opted.
