New Movie Releases – July 2012
Happy ‘Dark Knight Rises‘ and ‘Amazing Spider-Man‘ month, everyone! You could tell us that you’re not into either of these comic book heroes and we wouldn’t believe you, but we’ll still give you plenty of other new movie releases to choose from for July 2012. That is, if you insist on lying about how much you despise Bruce Wayne and Peter Parker.
