After a lukewarm box office in the month of June — where the entire box office grossed just about $540 million — blockbuster season moves full steam ahead with a few movies that are sure to turn things around in the month of July. In addition to Spider-Man: Far From Home, a movie that's been long-touted as the finale to the MCU's Infinity Saga, Walt Disney Studios is also rolling out the much-anticipated The Lion King remake towards the end of the month.
Moving to smaller-scale flicks, the terrifying Midsommar — A24's follow-up to Hereditary — is released just in time for the extended holiday weekend. Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista will team up with Men in Black: International funnyman Kumail Nanjiani in the hilarious Stuber on July 12th and the month ends with Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
