Summer blockbuster season hits its peak in July, with Paul Feig's rebooted Ghostbusters, a fifth installment of the mega-successful Ice Age franchise, and the much-hyped Star Trek Beyond all on deck. But there's plenty to take in this month, from a scrappy superspy franchise with something to prove to a handful of intriguing, lower-stakes indie releases. Whether you're looking to get your fix of spectacle or searching for some much-needed counter-programming, read on for five releases to keep an eye on over the next few weeks.

Why Kenneth Branagh Loves Mysteries, from ‘Wallander’ to ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ (Emmy Watch)

26 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Kenneth Branagh fell into his love affair with the “Wallander” mysteries by Swedish author Henning Mankell (1948 – 2015) for “the sheer pleasure of the reading,” he told me over the phone. “It was novel by novel. I’m not usually a kind of completist in this regard, but each novel did send me to the next one, and I did read them in order, and I did find myself drawn in, hypnotically. I didn’t feel I’d met anyone quite like this before or this landscape.”

The novels are set in Sweden, in and around the town of Ystad, 35 miles south-east of the city of Malmö, in the southern province of Skåne. And that’s where the PBS Mystery series (four seasons, from 2009 through 2016) is also filmed. “It’s vast and flat,” said Branagh. “It has a strong regional dialect. It’s a curious, forgotten, unfashionable pocket of land. Over 60 percent »
