Bill & Ted Face the Music - July 2

Loveable time-traveling slackers Bill & Ted make their most triumphant and long-awaited return. But time has caught up to the aged Wyld Stallions. They were supposed to have written a song that saved the world, but they've been stumped for 30 years. Now, time is running out.

Summer of Soul - July 2

We've been writing a lot about Questlove's new jawn. It made a ton of buzz earlier this year at Sundance and stands as a rock-doc that certainly rolls. Questlove's acclaimed doc takes us through a long-forgotten music festival and cultural event that took place in Harlem during the same summer hippies flocked to Woodstock.

Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar - July 9

This bright and sunny comedy from the gals that brought you "Bridesmaids," is the perfect poolside summer companion. Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig, who co-wrote the script, star as the quirky title characters. The duo embarks on a Floridian adventure -- their first trip outside their hometown. The two soon, of course, get in over their poofed-up heads.

You will not be starved of a great movie to watch this month on Hulu. The streamer is dropping nearly 200 titles across all genres, so there is surely something for everyone. Some gems worth noting include Danny Boyle's zombie classic "28 Days Later," and his award-winning biopic of outdoorsman Aron Ralston, "127 Hours." Michael Keaton mixes up laughs and scares as the ghost with the most "Beetlejuice." Michelle Pfeiffer teaches in a gangsta's paradise in "Dangerous Minds," while Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver head back into space in "Galaxy Quest." You can run from Arnold Schwarzenegger in "The Terminator," chug syrup with the "Super Troopers," or hunt bad criminals with the original "RoboCop."

Along with those classics, you can look for a collection of back-catalog hits from indie studio IFC Films, and some recent indie gems like Danish director Michael Noer's remake of the '70s prison classic "Papillon" and Debra Granik's 2018 Sundance gem "Leave No Trace."
