The best movies coming to Showtime this month
More than 60 new movies will be added to Showtime in July 2019. Here are some of the standouts:
13 Going on 30: Jennifer Garner won over moviegoers with this 2004 rom-com, where she plays Jenna Rink, an awkward 13-year-old girl who wishes she could be 30 years old — and then finds her wish has come true when she wakes up one morning as a grown up. Mark Ruffalo plays Matt Flamhaff, her best friend and love interest.
Hotel Artemis: This dystopian sci-fi movie set in a near-future Los Angeles received mixed reviews when it was released in 2018. But some critics praised the flick — which stars Jodie Foster as a nurse who runs a hospital for criminals — calling it “thrilling, original” and hailing a “strong performance” from Foster.
3:10 to Yuma: Russell Crowe plays notorious outlaw Ben Wade and Christian Bale is the rancher who agrees to transport him to prison in Yuma in this gritty remake of the 1957 Western of the same name. Ben Foster stands out as the most ruthless of Wade’s henchmen.
Senna: This well-received 2010 documentary tells the story of Brazilian race-car driver Ayrton Senna via archival footage and video clips provided by his family. It won a BAFTA for best documentary and also took home awards at the Sundance Film Festival and Los Angeles Film Festival.
Midnight in Paris: Owen Wilson plays a discontented screenwriter on a family vacation to Paris in this 2011 comedy directed by Woody Allen. On a late-night work, he’s magically transported back in time to the 1920s, where he meets literary idols like Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein.
