1. “To the Bone” (available July 14)

Marti Noxon’s feature directorial debut was a hit out of Sundance, where the Lily Collins-starring drama about eating disorders won over audiences for its nimble ability to tell a compelling dramatic story interspersed with well-earned humor. Sketched from Noxon’s own experiences with anorexia and bolstered by a star turn from the always-reliable Collins, the film is both important and entertaining, and it should be able to reach a very wide audience on the streaming platform. Do not miss it.

2. “Punch-Drunk Love” (available July 1)

Paul Thomas Anderson’s lauded 2002 romantic dramedy features Adam Sandler in one of his few “hey, this guy can really act!” roles and includes some of the auteur’s most indelible shots and richest observations about life and love. It’s a modern classic, and now it can be piped right into your home. I’m lookin’ at your Netflix queue and I just wanna smash it. I just wanna fuckin’ smash it with a sledgehammer and squeeze it. It’s so pretty.

3. “Chasing Coral” (available July 14)

Jeff Orlowski won the U.S. Documentary Audience Award at Sundance earlier this year for his newest feature, a stunning documentary about the fight to protect coral reefs from becoming extinct. Featuring breathtaking and distressing underwater footage, the movie puts into perspective just how endangered coral reefs are and tracks the effort to save them.

4. “Lion” (available July 9)

This heart-wrenching true story was an awards season juggernaut earlier this year, featuring stellar turns from Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel. Based on the unbelievable life of young Saroo Brierley, the feature follows his separation from his family and his startling trip back to them many years later, aided by — for real — Google Maps and his own indomitable heart. Bring tissues.

5. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (available July 18)

The very first standalone “Star Wars” spinoff follows a motley crew of rogues, criminals, rebels, and scallawags as they attempt to steal the plans to the monstrous Death Star in a bid to really just totally stick it to the Empire and Darth Vader. Knowing how it ends — they get them! and…some other stuff, too! — doesn’t dilute its tension and creativity, and it features a banger of an ensemble cast. Let this one tide you over before the next entry in the rapidly expanding movie universe.

6. “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (available July 1)

The early part of the month is heavy on kid-leaning classics, from “Free Willy” to “The Mighty Ducks,” but it’s hard to top the potency of Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic. Gather the whole family around the TV and get heavy on the Reese’s Pieces, and enjoy one of the best films ever made about childhood, friendship, and letting go.

Here are the rest of the incoming films for this July:

Love Actually: Close-Up on Albert Brooks’ "Modern Romance"

  • MUBI
Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Albert Brooks' Modern Romance (1981) is showing February 17 - March 19, 2017 in the United Kingdom in the series The Rom Com Variations. She’s out of my lifeShe’s out of my lifeAnd I don’t know whether to laugh or cry—Michael Jackson, “She’s Out of My Life”“cras amet qui numquam amavitquique amavit cras amet”—The Magus (John Fowles) Life comes at you fast. As someone recently on the receiving end of an unexpected breakup, I was a little cool on the idea of watching Albert Brooks’ 1981 film Modern Romance—whose premise was summarized, on the one-sheets at the time, in the following terms: “Robert was madly in love with Mary. Mary was madly in love with Robert. Under the circumstances they did the only thing they could do… they broke up.” But then, in that brutal darkness of heartache,

Nate Parker: Why He’s Speaking Out Against 1999 Rape Accusations Before ‘Birth of a Nation’ Awards Cycle

Nate Parker: Why He’s Speaking Out Against 1999 Rape Accusations Before ‘Birth of a Nation’ Awards Cycle
Nate Parker’s Cinderella story took a decidedly darker turn Friday morning with a Deadline piece in which the filmmaker behind “The Birth of a Nation” gave an extended interview acknowledging his role in a 1999 rape charge, when he was a student at Penn State.

You can read the details here, but the upshot is he and “The Birth of a Nation” co-writer Jean McGianni Celestin had sex with a fellow student — an incident that, they said, was consensual; she says she was passed-out drunk and unable to give consent. The case went to trial, and Parker was acquitted while Celestin’s conviction was overturned on appeal.

This comes the morning after Parker received the Vanguard Award at the Sundance Institute’s Night Before Next benefit, where he also announced the Institute’s launch of The Birth of a Nation Fellowship for 18-to-24-year-old filmmakers who participate in the Institute’s Ignite program.

The Bourne Identity: the battle to make the first film

facebook

twitter

google+

It was the spy thriller that revitalised the genre. But the production of 2002’s The Bourne Identity was far from an easy one...

Like so many budding filmmakers of his generation, Doug Liman got his start in movies by fiddling with his father's Super 8 camera. Then aged eight, Liman "Picked it up, started making movies with it, and never stopped."

By the time he'd reached his early 30s, Liman's ambitions had finally paid off. His films Swingers and Go, released in 1996 and 1999, were made cheaply and recouped healthy profits. Urgent and effervescently told, they were the product of a young, talented filmmaker on the rise. Liman's rising profile soon saw him land the kind of deal that a few dozen other hopefuls would have sold their souls for - Universal signed him up to make a film based on Robert Ludlum's spy thriller, The Bourne Identity.

Taylor Hackford To Helm De Niro's "Comedian"

"Devil's Advocate" and "Proof of Life" helmer Taylor Hackford has been set to direct Cinelou's "The Comedian," the long-gestating passion project of Robert De Niro.

De Niro will play a toxic insult comic along the lines of a Don Rickles. Art Linson penned the script but Jeffrey Ross, a frequent celebrity roast guest and the writer of De Niro comedy "What Just Happened?," has penned the material that De Niro's character will spout.

Mike Newell recently signed on to the project but soon had to exit due to scheduling. Linson will produce alongside Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon. Casting is now underway and filming is slated to begin in mid-January in New York.

Meg Ryan And John Mellencamp Break Up

Meg Ryan and her rocker boyfriend John Mellencamp have split up after more than three years of dating.

Meg Ryan, John Mellencamp Split

Ryan and Mellencamp reportedly broke up after the distance started to take a toll on their relationship. “It was the distance,” a source told People. “She lives in New York and he resides in Indiana. It was the long distance that ultimately was the cause.”

Mellencamp has previously stated that not even his affection for Ryan could lure him to live in Manhattan. The “Jack & Diane” singer has called himself “too sensitive” for the big city and has stated his concern for his girlfriend, who has long called it home.

"I'm too sensitive to live there," he told Rolling Stone in December. "I can't see poor people. I can't see the suffering. I can't see the trash on the streets." As for the paparazzi attention Ryan faces,

Whether or not you loved post-grunge supergroup Creed and the ever-present hit "With Arms Wide Open," you need to listen to lead singer Scott Stapp talk about the song reaching the "burn-out phase."

Whatever Happened to Meg Ryan?

  • Moviefone
In the late '80s and throughout the '90s, not a year went by without a movie starring Meg Ryan. The bubbly blonde actress became "America's Sweetheart" thanks to films including "When Harry Met Sally," "Sleepless in Seattle," and "You've Got Mail."

But in the last decade, Ryan has all but disappeared from the screen, doing only small, supporting roles here and there. Why did one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood disappear?

According to the latest issue of People, it's not because Ryan wasn't getting offers. Rather, she's chosen to focus on her family -- 8-year-old daughter Daisy and rocker boyfriend John Mellencamp. Ryan, now 51, literally disappeared from Hollywood by moving to New York.

"Los Angeles is just about movies. New York is about so much more than that, and so is Meg," said writer Delia Ephron (sister to Nora Ephron, who wrote many of Ryan's movies
