Well, the summer movie season is nearly over and August is that last month that will see the last few titles that remained. Some of those titles are fun, some action packed, some look like good fun for the entire family but all of them have one thing in common – they are ready to earn a whole lot of your hard earned cash when you go to buy tickets for the opening premiere.
What goes next is the list of new movies that should be expected in the month that has just begun. The August will offer you next:
#1 – The Dark Tower
The Dark Tower is technically a sequel to the Stephen King series of novels and this one should tie in the mythology of the world that came before with the movie. By the looks of things, fans of these kinds of movies will be happy because it looks it will be a very fun action movie.
The storyline is: The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black, determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
As we managed to find out it will be opening on Friday, August 4th.
#2 – Kidnap
Here is another one in the line of thrillers and this will be a somewhat faster-paced action one. This movie will see Halle Berry on a mission to return her kidnapped son, and let me tell you nothing will stop her from doing that. She will be furious just as Liam Neeson before her was and she will utilize a minivan in a way nobody did ever before, as a tactical weapon of speed and ferocity.
The official storyline goes: In the US, a child goes missing every 40 seconds. You never think it will happen to you. Until it does. Alone and scared, Karla Dyson (Halle Berry) is unwilling to leave the fate of her son’s life in someone else’s hands. When she catches a glimpse of the abductors speeding away, she decides to fight back. In a heart pounding race against time, Kate begins a high-speed pursuit and will stop at nothing to save her son’s life.
It will open on Friday, August 4th.
#3 – Detroit
This one seems to be the only contender that will be able to give Dunkirk a run for its money. This is Kathryn Bigelow’s historical drama that recounts the true story of a harrowing incident of police brutality during the Detroit riots in 1967. With a top notch cast that includes Anthony Mackie, Will Poulter, and John Boyega this one seems to be the one that will glue you to your seats.
Official storyline is A police raid in Detroit in 1967 results in one of the largest RACE riots in United States history. The story is centered around the Algiers Motel incident, which occurred in Detroit, Michigan on July 25, 1967, during the racially charged 12th Street Riot. It involves the death of three black men and the brutal beatings of nine other people: seven black men and two white women.
The movie will open on Friday, August 4th.
#4 – Annabelle: Creation
Another scary movie is upon us and it will knock everyone’s socks off. The sequel Annabelle: Creation will be even scarier than the first one, which means that we might have another one Ouija: Origin of Evil because it also has blown its predecessor out of the waters.
The storyline goes: Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the Dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
You can see Annabelle: Creation on Friday, August 11th.
#5 – The Glass Castle
The Glass Castle is based on the heartbreaking memoir written by Jeanette Walls about her turbulent childhood and her confrontation of such events as an adult. The director of this movie (as well as screenplay writer) is Destin Daniel Cretton while the writers are Andrew Lanham and Jeanette Walls. The stars roster in this movie is incredible with names like Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, Naomi Watts and more.
The storyline is: A young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who’s an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children’s imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.
It will open on Friday, August 11th.
#6 – The Hitman’s Bodyguard
The Hitman’s Bodyguard will pair two incredible actors like Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds into one amazing action comedy. Here you will see a hitman who needs to testify at the International Court of Justice and is in dire need of a bodyguard. Since these two are totally different characters they will have to set their differences apart for this on a job and try and work together. You can only presume how much fun will this be, especially with the given short period of time these have to make it to the trial.
This one opens on Friday, August 18th.
#7 – Logan Lucky
Steven Soderbergh’s unique brand of comedy, crime movies never stopped to wow we and this one will not be any different. His ability to make a great movie is unquestionable and with cast like Channing Tatum and Adam Driver (attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina) plus supporting cast that includes Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank and Daniel Craig this one will make you postpone everything you have planned and rush for theaters near you.
Make sure to clear your calendar because this one will open on Friday, August 18th.
#8 – Patti Cake$
Fox Searchlight’s latest attempt at festival glory and awards buzz brings us something new and somewhat fresh. Patti Cake$ is centered on aspiring rapper Patricia Dombrowski, a.k.a. Killa P, a.k.a. Patti Cake$, who is fighting an unlikely quest for glory in her downtrodden hometown in New Jersey. The movie has already received a lot of fantastic reviews and it seems like a decent one worthy of our time.
Patti Cake$ is opening on Friday, August 18th and if you can make sure to check it out.
#9 – Tulip Fever
Tulip Fever is all about love, but a risky one because this one happened between a poor artist and a rich man’s wife. This one is a romantic drama that most of you will fall in love with, even more since it is set in 17th century Amsterdam where everything is about high art as well as high stakes. The cre is made out of Dane DeHaan and Alicia Vikander as the star-crossed pair while the Christoph Waltz is playing the bad husband. Knowing him from other movies where he played a baddie we believe that this one might be as, if not even more interesting.
Tulip Fever is opening Friday, August 25th so make sure you watch it.
