5 movies you need to watch in July 2023 | Digital Trends

June was a great month for both Hollywood blockbusters and independent films. Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse somehow exceeded everyone’s sky-high expectations and simultaneously made one of the best animated film, best sequel and best comic book ever made. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts it was actually quite decent, e.g City of Asteroids it turned out to be one of Wes Anderson’s best films.

July is even more promising when we finally get to see who wins the ultimate cinematic showdown: Barbie OR Oppenheimer? There are also sequels in the Mission: Impossible and Insidious franchises that will take audiences from their streaming queues and into multiplexes. July really is a month for everyone, and these five movies are at the top of our list.

Insidious: The Red Door (July 7)


One of the most surprisingly enduring franchises of modern times has been the Insidious franchise, which has earned over $500 million on a combined budget of approximately $26 million. The first film, an effective Poltergeist rip-off starring Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne, spawned three additional sequels, the latter two of which deviated from the central story of the Lambert family to focus on supporting characters such as Lin Shaynes’ Elise Rainier.

With the fifth (and last?) episode, Insidious: The Red Door, the franchise goes back to where it all began and checks in on the Lambert family 10 years after their initial haunting. Everything that made the first movie a cheap but effective hit, jump scares, spooky music, that Lipstick-Face Demon are all there. The film promises to end the series on a positive note by delivering some spooky summer scares. Hey, that’s better than watching The flash Still.

Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1 (July 12)

Aside from James Bond, there is no modern action franchise as revered or respected as the Mission: Impossible series. First launched in 1996 with Brian De Palma’s excellent episode, the Mission: Impossible franchise has become a must-see cinematic event with Ghost Protocol and never looked back. the last entry, Mission: Impossible Showdown, Part 1it’s so highly anticipated that Paramount Pictures released a teaser a full year before the film’s premiere just to appease the eager fan base and remind everyone why Mission: Impossible still kicks ass all these years later.

It worked. The trailer showcases one jaw-dropping stunt after another, with the usual crew of Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Rebecca Ferguson helping everyone’s favorite rogue agent, Ethan Hunt, save the world once again. Christopher McQuarrie, the writer/director of the previous two entries, Rogue nation AND Fall, returns, but the glue that holds it all together is Tom Cruise. As Ethan, Cruise takes all kinds of abuse to please action fans, and that’s what we’ve come to expect from death-defyers Top Gun: nonconformist star. With sword fights in Venice, motorbikes chasing runaway trains, shootouts at posh rave parties and a Lawrence of Arabia-esque sequence in an empty desert, The showdown Part 1 promises to be the most epic action movie of all time The showdown Part 2 will hit theaters in 2024, of course.

Oppenheimer’s contributions to the Manhattan Project led to the creation of the atomic bomb, which would change the world forever, for better or for worse. Universal is betting on Nolan with everything he has, getting a budget of 100 million dollars for Nolan’s nuclear epic. Nolan’s dedication to practical effects, especially the bomb blast itself, will result in something that has to be seen to be believed.
