Comment by Dr. Loomis – Cinema Releases July 21 2017

I’m a big fan of director Christopher Nolan, in fact I like all of his films to date. This week sees him tackle a different genre with Dunkirk, it should be an epic but I’ll be holding back a little on the excitement front. It certainly looks from the film trailers like he has done the subject justice.

Not too much else out this week in the UK, however the US sees a couple of other releases neither of which look likely to do particularly well at the box office. I for one have no interest in the crude looking comedy Girls Trip and the sci-fi adventure Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has offered little in the trailer draw me into the world.
