After six months of waiting, July – arguably the biggest month for blockbuster movies in 2012 – has finally arrived. This month, one comic book saga will get a fresh start with The Amazing Spider-Man and one critically-acclaimed comic book trilogy will reach its dramatic end with The Dark Knight Rises. Add to those films a new Oliver Stone thriller, a creepy drama starring Sigourney Weaver and a fresh comedy with Ben Stiller and this could be a huge month at the box office.
Of course, the month’s biggest winners will likely be Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises. And with their release dates quickly approaching, major questions still surround them. Will Andrew Garfield serve as a solid substitute to Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker? Can The Dark Knight Rises live up to its predecessors in the series? Will these movies redefine the comic book genre and live up to the standard The Dark Knight set in 2008?
We’ll find out the answers soon enough. But in the meantime, here are the six July movies we at Screen Rant are looking forward to seeing.
