Ant-Man and the Wasp and all of the movies you need to see in theatres this July!

There is a lot of fun to be had at the movies this July.

While many of us are still recovering from Avengers: Infinity War, we can take some solace in the fact that Ant-Man is back alongside his sidekick The Wasp, and they'll likely help us forget our woes.

If superheroes aren't your thing, we also have musicals, cartoon vampires, and a new Gus Van Sant film to fill all of your movie-going needs.

Check out what's new in theatres this July!

The First Purge

Release Date: July 4th

For Fans of: Thrills, Politics, Marisa Tomei

See it with: Your friends

In this prequel to The Purge franchise, we're going to find out how this yearly crime-spree came about. Marisa Tomei joins the series as the mastermind behind this psychological experiment, which allows one night of legal criminal activity in an effort to reduce violence throughout the rest of the year. With an Independence Day release date, this is definitely one political way to celebrate America's birthday. 


Ant-Man and the Wasp

Release Date: July 6th

For Fans of: Superheroes, Marvel, Paul Rudd

See it with: Your family 

Picking up after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man and the Wasp is giving us the light-hearted superhero film we need after Avengers: Infinity War. Paul Rudd returns as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and this time he has a partner to help him fight crime, Hope Van Dyne who becomes The Wasp. Plot details are still largely under wraps, but we're excited to see this pair battle it out, in both minuscule and epic proportions.


Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

Release Date: July 13th

For Fans of: Vampires, Adam Sandler, Family vacations

See it with: Your family

The third installment of the Hotel Transylvania series sees Mavis (Selena Gomez) surprising her dad Dracula (Adam Sandler) with a family vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship. Chaos arises when Drac falls for the ship's captain, Erika (Kathryn Hahn) who turns out to be a descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, arch-nemesis to Dracula and all other monsters. The rest of this talented voice cast returns including Andy Samberg, David Spade, Kevin James and Molly Shannon


Skyscraper

Release Date: July 13th

For Fans of: Dwayne Johnson, Action, Heights

See it with: A date

See it in: IMAX

We've been blessed with two Dwayne Johnson action films this year, and the second of the summer, Skyscraper, looks epic. Here he plays an FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran whose new job is assessing security for skyscrapers. His latest assignment takes him to Hong Kong, where the tallest and safest building has been set on fire, and he's been framed for it. Not only that, but his family is trapped inside. If we want to watch anyone get out of this situation, it's The Rock. 


Sorry to Bother You

Release Date: July 13th 

For Fans of: Indies, Telemarketers, Alternate realities

See it with: A friend 

Rapper turned filmmaker Boots Riley became an instant sensation at the Sundance Film Festival with his debut feature, Sorry to Bother You. The films stars Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), as a telemarketer living in an alternate version of present-day Oakland, California, who finds a magical key that propels him into a world of professional success. The film also stars Tessa Thompson and Armie Hammer. 


The Equalizer 2

Release Date: July 20th

For Fans of: Denzel Washington, The Equalizer, Justice 

See it with: Your dad

The Equalizer 2 is Denzel Washington's first time doing a sequel, and that speaks to us. Here he reprises his role as Robert McCall, a man with a desire to serve justice, and who has the right skill set to take vengeance. We're down to watch Denzel punish the guilty for another feature length revenge-spree. 


Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot

Release Date: July 20th

For Fans of: ​True stories, Joaquin Phoenix, Gus Van Sant

See it with: A friend 

Joaquin Phoenix's breakout role as a young actor was in the Gus Van Sant film To Die For, so it's pretty amazing to see the pair reunite for this autobiographical story about an alcoholic whose life changes after a nearly fatal car accident. Seeking treatment, John Callahan (Phoenix) finds solace in a newly discovered talent, drawing newspaper cartoons that gain a national following. 


Eighth Grade

Release Date: July 20th

For Fans of: Junior High, Bo Burnham, Coming of age stories 

See it with: A friend 

Comedian Bo Burnham's directorial debut was one of the most buzzed films at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Focusing on a young girl in the last days of eighth grade, this is a story we don't often see in the movies. We hear that this is an extremely honest and gritty portrayal of a very pivotal moment of adolescence, and what Burnham has to say with this film is something that many of us will relate to.  


Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Release Date: July 20th

For Fans of: Abba, musicals, Greece

See it with: Your mom

We're huge fans of the first Mamma Mia, so seeing that the cast is returning for this sequel has us extremely excited. Not only that, but Cher is joining the ensemble, playing Sophie (Amanda Seyfried)'s grandmother. Now that Sophie is pregnant, she's feeling even more connected to her mother Donna, and the film jumps between past and present, giving us a glimpse of Donna's young life as Sophie learns more about her mom's experiences. 


Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Release Date: July 27th

For Fans of: Tom Cruise, Crazy stunts, Henry Cavill

See it with: Your dad

It's hard to believe that we're already at the sixth Mission: Impossible film, but we're always along for the ride. Tom Cruise continues his reign as Ethan Hunt, this time on a mission that has him racing against the clock after something goes wrong. He's joined by Superman himself, Henry Cavill, along with series regulars Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson. If we can expect anything from this film, it's tons of crazy stunts done by Cruise himself.


Teen Titans Go! to the Movies

Release Date: July 27th

For Fans of: Superheroes, Cartoons, Hollywood

See it with: Your kids

A talented voice cast including Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell and Will Arnett are bringing Teen Titans to the movies. Here we follow some of our favourite superheroes, including Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and Robin as they aspire to Hollywood fame. Wanting to star in their own movie, they try to attract the attention of a big Hollywood director, but their plans are thwarted when a super villain named Slade tries to take over the world.
