It’s raining must-watch movies in July, August and September, so be sure you catch ‘em when you can!


Magellan (July 5)

This is a cerebral science fiction film that talks NASA, artificial intelligence and quantum entanglement. NASA picks up a trio of mysterious signals from within our own solar system and astronaut Roger Nelson is dispatched on a multi-year solo mission aboard the Magellan spacecraft to investigate the sources. What he discovers will change our understanding of science and our place in the universe, but the journey will have lasting consequences on Nelson and the wife he left behind. Don’t miss this “hard” science fiction film about space exploration, based on real science and theoretical situations.


Spider Man : Homecoming (July 7)

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns home to live with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.


War for the Planet of the Apes (July 12)

This science fiction film directed by Matt Reeves follows at the heels of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) and is the third installment in the the Planet of the Apes reboot series. Two years after the events in Dawn, Caesar and his apes have been waging war against humans. The ape population decreases, and Caesar needs to wrestle with his baser instincts as he tries to avenge his fallen comrades. The war between apes and humans will decide the ultimate fate of planet Earth.


Emoji Movie (August 9)

This 3D computer-animated buddy adventure comedy film is pure sunshine – just the right antidote for the rainy weather. The film centers on Gene, a multi-expressional emoji who lives in a phone when he sets out on a journey to become a regular meh emoji like his parents. It stars the voices of Patrick Stewart, Sofia Vwergara and Christina Aguillera, among others.


Cars 3 (August 23)

This third installment in the Cars series follows through on the Cars adventures. A new generation of fast, blazing cars threaten to push out Lighting McQueen out of the sport that he loves. How will he get back in the game? Maybe Cruz Ramirez, an eager young technician who has the formula for winning, can help. Getting inspiration from the Fabulous Hudson Hornet and some interesting developments, No.95 prepares to compete in the Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage. The voices of Owen Wilson, Arnie Hammer, Bonny Hunt, Larry the Cable Guy and Kerry Washington star in this speed-prone movie.


The Lego Ninjago Movie (Sept. 21)

Another animated , action-comedy martial arts film takes off at the Greenhills Cinemas this September. Based on the Lego Ninjago toy line, the film is a spin-off installment from The Lego Movie and follows the mold of the Lego Batman Movie. You will probably recognize the voices of Justin Theroux, Michael Peña, Zach Woods, Jackie Chan and a host of others in this one. Old master Jackie Chan transforms six teenagers into ninja heroes by night, defeating monsters and riding vehicles and dragons to protect the faraway land of Ninjago. The warlord Lord Garmadon, however, must cope with the realization that one of the ninjas (Dave Franco) is his son.
