July’s New DVD Releases: Zoolander 2, High-Rise, Kung Fu Panda 3 and more!
There’s a bumper crop of new DVD releases this month, which is great news considering the weather recently has ranged from ‘dull’ to ‘apocalyptic’. Best to settle in and enjoy some new films, eh?
Grimsby – 4th July
Sacha Baron Cohen’s action comedy sees a dimwit team up with his long-lost brother, who is an MI6 spy wrongly accused after uncovering an evil plot. As hilarious as it was controversial.

Po the Panda is back, and this time he’s facing off with a supernatural villain who is beating up kung-fu masters left, right and centre. Luckily, he’s just been reunited with his long-lost panda dad (voiced by the always awesome Bryan Cranston) and has a whole army of totally useless pandas to back him up.
The Witch – 18th July
Released to critical acclaim earlier this year, The Witch is widely considered to be one of the best horror films of the past 10 years. A family in 1630 New England begin turning on each other after a series of seemingly demonic events.
High-Rise – 18th July

10 Cloverfield Lane – 25th July
When it was announced that the sequel to Cloverfield would mainly be set in a bunker, people were naturally worried. They needn’t have been. 10 Cloverfield Lane is a tense, highly original thriller with an absolute gutpunch of an ending. Even if you didn’t like the first movie, there’s a chance you’ll enjoy this one.

Eddie the Eagle – 25th July
Taron Egerton stars as lovable-but-terrible ski jumper Eddie Edwards as he bids to become the first Great British ski jumper at the Winter Olympics. You already know how this one ends, but it doesn’t make the story any less remarkable or inspirational.
Supergirl: The Complete First Season – 25th July
People weren’t expecting much from this series based on Krypton’s most famous daughter – how wrong they were. It’s surprisingly brilliant; fans of Arrow and The Flash will love it, as may any superhero fan.
