Suicide Squad
Comic giant DC was thrust into a war with Marvel after the latter’s stock took flight with Iron Man and now soars in the box office stratosphere. After the widely panned Batman vs. Superman, DC is pinning its hopes on its bad guys. Camus goes punk.
23 July
Roald Dahl’s charming tale of a dream weaving giant makes it to the big screen courtesy of a director who was probably born to make it, Steven Spielberg in full 1982 E.T. mode. Camus cautiously ventures into Giant Country and samples a jar of dreams…

Independence Day: Resurgence
