Movies in July 2019

July must have arguably the most diverse line-up in recent months, with everything from superhero outings to horrifying creature-features popping up; and in anticipation for it all, we’ve rounded up the 5 movies hitting the big-screen this month that we can’t wait to see!

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Release date: 3 July 2019

While the dust is still settling from the colossal release of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel fans can look forward to the next film in the MCU, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The overarching plot for this Spider-Man sequel follows Peter Parker after the event of Endgame as he embarks on a school-trip to Europe, where he encounters some new villains and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio – a notable figure in Spider-Man lore.

Child’s Play

Release date: 12 July 2019

A horror icon gets a reboot with the return of Child’s Play, reintroducing the world to the demonic red-headed toy with a passion for killing. Acting as a reboot and somewhat of a remake of the original, the new iteration stars Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, and Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky.


Release date: 12 July 2019

While Stuber sounds like a somewhat ridiculous premise for a movie, it looks to have some good chemistry between Kumail Nanjiani (Deadpool) and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy). The film follows Stu (Nanjiani) who picks up a passenger (Bautista) who turns out to be a cop hot on the trail of a brutal killer. Stu is then thrust into a harrowing ordeal where he desperately tries to hold onto his wits, his life and his five-star rating.

The Lion King

Release date: 19 July 2019

While this year’s Aladdin got relatively mixed reviews, Disney is hoping to keep its live-action remake rock rolling, with The Lion King up next. Directed by Jon Favreau (who directed the first Iron Man), the all-new iteration of this classic tale returns to Pride Rock, and includes an all-star cast featuring Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.


Release date: 26 July 2019

There’s been a few monsters-beneath-the-surface films in recent years (The ShallowsRogue), but none have hit the cult-status of the likes of Deep Blue Sea or Jaws, but Alexandre Aja’s Crawl could be the next big creature-feature to keep us out of the water for quite some time. Crawl tells the story of a young woman who becomes trapped in a flooding house in Florida during a Category 5 hurricane. However, it’s what lurks below the rising water that’s the real threat. Sam Raimi, who is best known for his work on the original Spider-Man trilogy, is on-board as producer.
