Summer 2014 film preview - July & August

by Sara Michelle Fetters - SGN A&E Writer

Summer 2014 has proven to be a pretty darn good one up to this point. By and large, the majority of the major offerings coming out of Hollywood have been more or less solid, a small handful close to spectacular. Both Godzilla and X-Men: Days of Future Past exceeded expectation, while the ribald comedy Neighbors was a laugh riot start to finish. High profile sequels How to Train a Dragon 2 and 22 Jump Street also proved to be worthwhile cinematic offerings, as did the Tom Cruise sci-fi adventure Edge of Tomorrow and the teens-with-cancer melodrama The Fault in Our Stars.

The final two months of Hollywood's biggest season also have their promising titles eyeing a release. Melissa McCarthy attempts to cement her status as comedy's newest sensation with Tammy (July 2), Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel re-up for a second time with Sex Tape (July 18) while Fox hopes there's still room in the R-rated comedy summertime fold for their law enforcement impersonation effort Let's Be Cops (August 13). Studios continue to mine the latest in Young Adult fiction, both The Giver (August 15) and If I Stay (August 22) hoping for box office success.

As for sequels, there are plenty of them. Simians take control of the Earth in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (July 11), Marvel catapults its cinematic universe into the outer realms of the cosmos with Guardians of the Galaxy (August 1) and Robert Rodriguez heads back into Frank Miller hard-boiled noir territory as the long in coming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (August 22) finally hits theaters. Disney mines straight-to-video terrain for the second time in two years with Planes: Fire and Rescue while Universal tries to make lightning strike twice with their quickly produced, low budgeted horror effort The Purge: Anarchy (both July 18). Then there's Sylvester Stallone, assembling even more geriatric (or, almost geriatric) action heroes for one last outing bringing forth The Expendables 3 (August 15) for some hard-boiled, blood-riddled mayhem.

On the smaller side of the coin, Richard Linklater unveils 2014's best film Boyhood (July 25) to the world at large and not just the festival circuit, while Another Earth colleagues director Mike Cahill and actress Brit Marling reunite for the fascinating, deeply moving science-based metaphorical romance I, Origins (July 18). Once wunderkind John Carney returns with the melodiously enchanting Begin Again (July 2), while Woody Allen makes his yearly trek to the multiplex with the intriguing Magic in the Moonlight (July 25).

There's more, lots of it. A plethora of titles big, small and everywhere in-between scheduled to make appearances throughout the next two months. The following is a small sampling of films hitting Seattle screens in July and August. As always, release dates are subject to change so make sure and check with local theaters to make sure the movie you're aching to see is actually going to be playing.
