July movies Screen Rant Monthly Movie Preview: July 2010

We’ve decided to add a new recurring feature for you loyal readers. Prior to each month, we will present a teaser for the upcoming slate of films to be released that month, which we’ve discussed here at Screen Rant.

This summer has been fairly weak so far apart from Toy Story 3, but July seems to have more to offer. While much of it is still typical summer popcorn movie fare, a shining light of originality may be found in Inception. But that doesn’t mean it’s the only movie worth seeing.

If the The Twilight Saga: Eclipse buzz is getting on your nerves, you’ll be happy to know its June 30th release date pushes it out of our inaugural teaser. But this upcoming month does kick off with M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender on July 1st.

July 9th brings an horror/thriller reboot and a Steve Carell animated comedy to the masses, with Predators and Despicable Me.

While The Sorcerer’s Apprentice was originally set for a July 16th release, the studio wisely pushed it up to July 14th in an attempt to separate it from Inception. The latter film still hits theaters and IMAX on July 16th.

Angelina Jolie’s latest action film, Salt, comes out on July 23rd. The month ends with live-action comedy starring Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis, called Dinner for Schmucks.

Check out our Monthly Movie Preview for July 2010 below:

July has a real chance to bring the summer of 2010 back to form with something for every crowd. It is still amazing that only two of the seven movies in the teaser will be released in 3D. Just wait until next year, when I’ll have to actually make these teaser trailers in 3D!

Of course, not every movie made the teaser. We stuck to the ones that headline each week. If you are seriously anticipating a film that didn’t make it in, please share it with us in the comments section below. If you enjoyed the teaser, let us know as well.

As a reminder:

The Last Airbender – July 1st

Predators & Despicable Me - July 9th

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice - July 14th

Inception - July 16th

Salt - July 23rd

Dinner For Schmucks - July 30th

  1. I really really really envy you all for getting to see INCEPTION two/three weeks before me (it opens in my country Aug 5th)

  2. The Last Airbender and Predators, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Inception for me.

  3. Finally! Inception. Christopher Nolan could screen the phone book for 2 hours and I would watch.

  4. Inception, Predators, amd Despicable Me for me. If Sorcere’s Apprentice has good word of the mouth then I might watch it. Nice teaser, but it would,ve been nice if you had included the much buzzed about indie films like “The Girl Who Played With Fire”and “The Kids Are All Right.”

    • I love indies and would have liked to add those, but since we don’t cover that genre/style so much, it didn’t fit for the site. Sorry, Jose. But I’m with you!

    • Great work on both. Looking forward to Airbender, Sorcerers Apprentice, and Inception

  5. Inception and The Despicable me. No interest in the crappy looking M. Night movie, Sorcerers Apprentice or Adrian Brody pretending like he is tough when a 12 year old could kick his ass. Also not a 12 year old girl so not gonna watch Twilight.

  6. I might catch Predators…other then that nothing here moving on,,,

    • no airbender… damn you senile man :P

      i hope predators is ok… did you notice how brody’s character goes from wearing a sleeved shirt and BP vest to having just a vest the to no shirt with blood and mud on him ? looks very familiar to a movie i once saw ;)
