THE EMOJI MOVIE (July 28th)
This family-friendly film takes everyone’s favourite way to communicate sans words – the emoji – and somehow manages to make an animated feature out of it. Inside our smartphone lies the bustling city Textopolis, where the emojis live. All the emojis have just one facial expression, except Gene, who is determined to lose his ability to make multiple facial expressions and learn to be just like the rest of his emoji friends. You never thought you’d hear Patrick Stewart voice the poop emoji, but this movie is here to bring you exactly that.
DETROIT (August 4th)
Based on the true story of the Detroit riots in the summer of 1967, the immensely talented Katherine Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty) brings this historic drama to the big screen. Released to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the racially charged event, it covers the Algiers Motel incident–where three black men were beaten to death by police, and seven more ended up in the hospital, along with two white women. It won’t be an easy watch, but it will be the film everyone is talking about this summer.
THE DARK TOWER (August 4th)
Stephen King’s epic best-selling series comes to the big screen in The Dark Tower, staring Idris Elba as the famed last Gunslinger, and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black. The two are locked in an eternal battle, in which the Gunslinger must prevent the Man in Black from destroying the Dark Tower—the one thing holding the entire universe together. This is the sci-fi fantasy film King fans have been waiting a long time for, and it will likely be the first in a long line of films based on this series of novels.
ANNABELLE: CREATION (August 11th)
Horror fans will be happy to spend more time with Annabelle, the bone-chillingly creepy doll we first learned about in The Conjuring. The first Annabelle film was so successful that they came back with this one, telling her origin story. If you always wanted to know how a little girl’s spirit became trapped in a doll, and why that doll turned evil, this is your opportunity. It’s also filled with plenty of jump scares, if that’s your thing.
LOGAN LUCKY (August 18th)
If comedy is more up your alley, you’ll be happy to know that Steven Soderbergh has returned to the big screen after spending time on the small screen with The Knick. He directs Adam Driver and Channing Tatum as brothers in this classic heist flick, where they are determined to change their family’s 90 years of bad luck by robbing $14 million from the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. No biggie.
