Movies You Can Watch in PH Cinemas This July-Sept 2022
by: The Beat Asia
As cinemas in the Philippines continue to open its doors, we can’t help but look forward to what we can watch on the big screen these coming months! Here’s a list of films (as confirmed by local distributors) you can watch in Philippine cinemas from July to September 2022.
“Thor: Love and Thunder”
Directed by Taika Waititi, the fourth installment of the series follows the timeline after “Avengers: Endgame” where Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth) joins the company of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Thor later leaves the Guardians to — as Disney describes it — go on “a quest for inner peace.” This quest, however, is interrupted by Gorr the God Butcher who seeks the extinction of the gods. Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg, and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (who’s surprisingly the new wielder of the Mjolnir and the one who took over as the Goddess of Thunder) to stop the galactic killer.
Release date: July 8 (according to SM Cinema)
“DC League of Super-Pets“
The #DCSuperPets are ready to sit, stay, save the world.
Directed by Jared Stern, DC League of Super-Pets is a 3D computer-animated superhero comedy film based on the DC Comics superhero team “Legion of Super-Pets.” The film stars Krypto the Super-Dog (voiced by Dwayne Johnson) and Superman as inseparable best friends who fight crime side by side. When Superman (along with the rest of the Justice League) was captured by supervillain Lex Luthor, Krypto forms a team of shelter pets who were also given super powers to go on a rescue mission.
Release date: July 27 (according to Warner Bros. Pictures Philippines)
Bullet Train is an action-comedy thriller about a trained assassin named Ladybug (Brad Pitt) who’s back on the job but wants to do things “peacefully.” His handler Maria Beetle (Sandra Bullock) assigns him a mission to retrieve a brief case inside a bullet train bound to Kyoto, but little did he know that he’s also on board with the world’s deadliest assassins — all with connected yet conflicting objectives. Directed by David Leitch, the film is based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kōtarō Isaka.
Release date: Aug. 3 (according to Columbia Pictures Philippines)
Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, Beast is a survival thriller film about Dr. Nate Samuels (Idris Elba) who is a recently widowed husband. Samuels returns to South Africa (where he first met his wife) along with his two teenage daughters to visit a game reserve managed by a wildlife biologist and an old family friend. Their long-planned trip, however, took an unexpected turn when a lion begins stalking them.
Release date: Aug. 19 (according to Universal Pictures Philippines)
“Puss in Boots: The Last Wish”
Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is the newest adventure in the Shrek universe. Directed by Joel Crawford, the film follows outlaw Puss in Boots (voiced by Antonio Banderas) as he discovers that his passion for peril and his disregard for safety have taken its toll. He has burned eight out of his nine lives, leading him to set on a journey into the Black Forest to find a mythical “Wishing Star” that will help him restore his lost lives. With only one life left, he will have to humble himself to ask the help of Kitty Soft Paws, his former partner and nemesis.
