July brings with it a heavy dose of animated goodness and action-packed escapades to the big and small-screen, with another entry into the MCU on the horizon, along with some exciting sequels and spin-offs.

Minions: The Rise of Gru

Release date: 1 July 2022

Steve Carrell is back for another round of Minion madness with Minions: The Rise of Gru, which is a sequel to the prequel, Minions, so essentially it’s a prequel-sequel set before all the Despicable Me movies. The story follows 12-year-old Gru and his dream to become the world’s greatest supervillain, as he embarks on an adventure to join a supervillain group.


Release date: 1 July 2022

One of the most intriguing movies arriving this year is Men. Directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, Annihilation), the psychological horror follows a young woman who goes on a solo vacation to the English countryside following the death of her ex-husband. However, instead of finding peace to greave, she is confronted with someone, or something, stalking her. Men stars Jessie Buckley, Rory Kinnear, and Paapa Essiedu

Thor: Love and Thunder

Release date: 8 July 2022

The Marvel Cinematic Universe begins to move further into Phase 4 with Thor: Love and Thunder, which finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

The Sea Beast

From Academy Award winning filmmaker Chris Williams (Moana, Big Hero Six), The Sea Beast hits Netflix this July and takes us on another animated adventure. Starring Karl Urban (taking some time out killing superheroes in The Boys), Zaris-Angel Hator, Jared Harris, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Dan Stevens and Kathy Burke, the film takes place in an era when terrifying beasts roamed the seas, monster hunters were celebrated heroes – and none were more beloved than the great Jacob Holland. But when young Maisie Brumble stows away on his fabled ship, he’s saddled with an unexpected ally. Together they embark on an epic journey into uncharted waters and make history.
