Our pick of the tastiest movies coming to streaming in July.


UK/ROI cinemas may be reopening in July, but with rumours of Mulan and Tenet moving back their release dates once again, there won't be a whole lot for cinemagoers to choose from. Fear not, as plenty of tasty looking movies are debuting on streaming and digital platforms in July.

Here are the 10 upcoming movies that we're most excited for.

Werner Herzog's Japan set drama is inspired by a real life company that hires out actors to pose as absent family members at events like weddings and funerals. In Herzog's story, Ishii Yuchii, who is the real life head of said company, plays a fictionalised version of himself as he is hired for various "acting" jobs, including playing the part of the long missing father of a 12-year-old girl.
