None of the big studio or blockbuster releases are due to hit Irish cinemas in July as the likes of 'Mulan' and 'Tenet' will arrive no earlier than August. But there are other movies to look forward to in the meantime if you're hankering for something new.

As previously announced, 'Black Water: Abyss' hit theatres last week while 'Stage Mother' and 'Unhinged' are other upcoming releases. Wildcard and Vertigo Releasing have now announced three more new titles that will arrive in Irish cinemas in July.

Here are the new films you can watch in the next couple of weeks:


Saint Frances

Starring and written by Kelly O'Sullivan ('Sirens'), the "witty and heartfelt" 'Saint Frances' has won numerous awards on the festival circuit, including an Audience Award and Special Jury Prize.

It's Alex Thompson's feature debut.

According to the official synopsis: "At the start of the summer, Bridget (O’Sullivan) has an abortion just as she lands a much-needed job in an affluent Chicago suburb - nannying six-year old Frances (played by the scene stealing Ramona Edith-Williams).

"With no time to recover, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances’ moms.

"As her personal relationships suffer, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and shit-shows of becoming a part of someone else’s family."

'Saint Frances' hits screens on July 24th.


The Vigil

In the mood for something spooky? 'The Vigil' comes from the producer of 'Halloween' and 'Insidious'.

Starring Dave Davis ('Bomb City', 'True Detective'), Menashe Lustig ('Menashe'), and Lynn Cohen ('Munich', 'Sex and the City'), it's a supernatural horror with roots in Jewish culture and mysticism.

Its synopsis reads: "Having lost his faith, Yakov isn’t eager to go back to the insular religious community he only recently fled.

"But when Reb Shulem, a rabbi and confidante, approaches Yakov after a support group meeting and offers to pay Yakov to be the shomer for a recently deceased Holocaust survivor, he reluctantly accepts the job.

"Shortly after arriving at the dilapidated house, Yakov realizes that something is very, very wrong. This will not be a quiet vigil."

'The Vigil' arrives in Irish cinemas on July 31st.


100% Wolf

Moving onto something completely different, '100% Wolf' is one for the family.

Magda Szubanski, Rhys Darby, Jane Lynch and Samara Weaving all loan their voices to the computer animation.

The film centres on Freddy Lupin, heir to the leadership of a proud family line of werewolves. Positive he'll become a fearsome werewolf, Freddy is shocked when on his 14th birthday his first “warfing” goes awry. Thus he is turned into a ferocious… poodle.

Freddy has until the next moonrise to prove he has the heart of a wolf. Or the other pack members will cast him out forever. With the help of an unlikely ally in a streetwise stray named Batty, Freddy must prove he's still 100% Wolf.

It hits cinemas on July 31st.
