The Greenhills Cinema Watchlist…Your Year-Long Movie Planner, Part 2

Don’t look now, but it’s the second half of the year already.  And we’ve got your movie list planned out for you from July to September!


On July 6, see for yourself why Jaclyn Jose won Best Actress in the Cannes Film Festival. Ma’Rosa — the Filipino drama film directed by Brillante Mendoza that competed for the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival — rolls out for local viewers at Greenhills Cinema. Ms. Jose gives a riveting performance worthy of her honor.

On the same day, Ice Age: Collision Course, a  3D computer-animated family adventure film that is the fifth installment in the Ice Age film series, and Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to 2010’s Alice In Wonderland, entertain kids of all ages. Truly fitting entertainment to keep you occupied as the rains start to fall in Metro Manila.

Ghostbusters, the supernatural comedy film and reboot of the original Ghostbusters franchise, entertains loyal and new fans on July 13, while Star Trek Beyond, the 13th installment in the Star Trek movie series, opens on July 20.

Jason Bourne fans have something to look forward to. Bourne digs into his intriguing past in the latest of the Bourne movies set to open July 27. Suicide Squad, the American superhero film based on the DC Comics antihero team , opens on August 3. Supervillains accept a secret government mission that will likely result in their deaths.

Secret Life of Pets,  another 3D computer animated comedy film produced by Illumination Entertainment, opens on August 24, and lets us follow the life of a terrier named Max and a coterie of interesting characters, both animal and human.

Kubo and the 2 Strings, an American 3D stop-motion fantasy action-comedy film debuts on September 7. The story, set in ancient Japan, is about a young boy named Kubo who cares of his sick mother in a village. A spirit from the past turns Kubo’s life upside down by re-igniting an age-old vendetta.

On September 21, the much-awaited Magnificent 7 comes to cinemas. It stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Haley Bennett, Matt Bomer, and Peter Sarsgaard star in the remake of the 1954 film classic based on the Japanese film Seven Samurai.

Storks, the story of a stork who lands in big trouble when he accidentally activates a machine that produces an adorable baby girl, also opens September 21. This is another animation movie.

Finally, on September 28, Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children opens for public viewing. It tells the story of a boy who, following a horrific family tragedy, follows clues that take him to an abandoned orphanage on a Welsh island.

The great movies just keep rolling on and on at Greenhills Cinemas, where movie buffs can enjoy movies like no other. Three of the cinemas (Promenade 6, 7 and 8) are fitted with the immersive sound of Dolby Atmos, the newest sound technology that lets you “hear the whole picture”. Lush and ergonomic cinema seats, an excellent cooling system and nifty restrooms pamper moviegoers even more.
