Top 5 movies coming out in July

movie lists

#5 – Terminator: Genisys
Starring: Arnold Scwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney
Out: July 3rd

I’m not usually a fan of reboots/sequels, but like Jurassic World I was interested to see where this one is going to go. As a fan of the original Terminator movies, I want to see how they are going to reboot it and the additions that they have made certainly make it an interesting movie to see this month.

#4 –Pixels
Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan
Out: July 24th

This is going to be the movie that any one who has ever played a video game is going to want to watch, of any age. They have all the classic games that we love (Pac-man and Donkey Kong) and I’m sure they will have some cameo video games too (crossing my fingers for a character from Zelda).

#3 –Minions
Starring: Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Pierre Coffin
Out: July 10th

This is the ‘kid’ movie of the month but is going to be a movie that parents won’t mind seeing with them. It is no surprise that they are going to do a movie about the minions considering they are really what people love about Despicable Me. It will be interesting to see if they can lead a movie on their own or are they just good as secondary characters.

#2 –Magic Mike XXL
Starring: Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez
Out: July 3rd

It’s a sequel that we all can definitely get on board with. The boys come back and are on a road trip to a stripping convention in Miami (because those are the kind of things that exist in the movie universe). This is the second movie of the year that is going to have the female population rushing to the movie theaters to see (the first being Fifty Shades of Grey) as they get to watch the sexy men take off their clothes.

#1 –Ant-Man
Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Hayley Atwell, Michael Pena, Michael Douglass
Out: July 17th

We are going to dive into another story in the Marvel universe. Paul Rudd joins the family and is going to be one of those stand-out characters. His sarcasm is going to shine in this character and he’s going to be a great addition. The movie is going to have some competition at the box office but it should still do well.

‘Ted 2’ can’t match ‘Jurassic World’ in opening weekend

jp9

There was two movies that were set to come out this week with the loveable teddy bear, Ted 2, trying to grab the top spot for the box office, but was unable to take down either Jurassic World or Inside Out.

Jurassic World makes it three straight weeks at the top of the box office bringing in an estimated $54.2 million. The movie now has over $500 million domestically and now holds the record for the fastest movie to get to that mark getting there in 17 days compared to The Avengers (2012) which got there in 23 days. The movie has some ways to go to become the highest grossing film of all time, but at this rate, it’s possible.

Inside Out just misses beating out Jurassic World for the second straight week with it’s estimated $52.1 million. The movie continues to do well, as it should cross over the $200 million mark by the end of next week. At this rate, it should give Toy Story 3 a run for the top Pixar movie, but with Minions set to come out in a few weeks, it might effect it’s chances.

The premiere of Ted 2 had high expectations, but was unable to meet them with it’s estimated $33 million opening. The first movie was a surprise hit that opened at $54 million, but this movie not only had a lower opening, but also has lower ratings on Rotten Tomatoes.

The other new movie this week was Max which premiered with an estimated $12.2 million. Rounding out the top five is Spy with an estimated $7.8 million.

For the rest of the box office, you can go here.

There are two big movies set to come out this week with Terminator: Genysis and Magic Mike XXL. These two movies are sure to knock Jurassic World for the top spot next week, as the will battle for the top spot. Magic Mike might have the advantage because of the type of movie that it is.
