6 Flicks Picks for July 2019 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Monday, July 1, 2019
Welcome to another edition of 6 Flicks Picks, wherein I list all of the upcoming films that are scheduled to be released in the United States for the month which is about to begin and break down which ones I'll be watching in theaters, which ones I'll wait to rent at home, and which ones I'll be skipping out on entirely. After going through the list, I'll choose which six films stand out to me as the ones I want to see the most, even if there are more or less than six that interest me.

Note: The list below is based primarily off the expanded nationwide USA release dates on IMDB as well as some other random outlets if possible, so some information may be different. If I am missing some of the limited releases or the dates conflict in some fashion, please let me know in the comments below and any adjustments and corrections will be made!

Without further ado, another new month means another new set of films, so what's coming soon to theaters in July 2019?

Which films make the cut?

6. The Art of Self-Defense — At least if I'm seeing a comedy, I might laugh once.

5. Midsommar — No plans to see it, but if I had to pick, at least this one has buzz from Hereditary supposedly being good, but I didn't see that, either.

4. Stuber — Batista. Comedy. Action. Sure.

3. Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood — Admittedly, as much as I LOVE Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, I haven't been as impressed by Quentin Tarantino's last bunch of films. But I'll still give it a shot.

2. The Lion King — The Lion King is one of my 3 favorite Disney films (the other two being Aladdin and Toy Story) so of course I'm seeing this.

1. Spider-Man: Far From Home — Bro. C'mon. You know I've had my tickets since they went on sale. Spider-Man is my second favorite superhero.
