This month seems quite strange for upcoming movie releases as it doesn’t feel as though they’ve been advertised enough, especially the book-to-film adaption of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. It’s also even more surprising as each film features at least one big name actor, such as Ryan Reynolds, John Boyega, Channing Tatum, and Halle Berry, so the box office will certainly be relying on people searching for this month’s movie releases!
Read on to discover what movies are being released this month and tell us in the comments below what you might go and see!
