A stylish French remake of James Toback’s Fingers.

The World
July 1
China’s Jia Zhangke imports his festival hit.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The director who made Batman gothic and Sleepy Hollow terrifying has reclaimed Roald Dahl’s original, distinctly creepy vision of Willy Wonka, while also reinventing him as a sixties pop impresario, played by Johnny Depp.

Dark Water
July 8 Motorcycle Diaries’ Walter Salles switches gears for this horror flick.

The Fantastic Four
July 8
It’s tough to create a live-action movie about a guy who stretches, a woman who can be invisible, a wiseacre who can turn himself into a human torch, and another guy who looks like he was built out of a pile of rocks left over from a Connecticut-stone-fence project.

Murderball

Hot Teuton Daniel Brühl, poised for a crossover.

The Island
July 22
Michael Bay cheerily exploits the most obvious silver lining in the prospect of human duplication: that no self-respecting nerdy scientist in a dingy lab who dreams up the ultimate clone would waste his time producing a smaller version of himself, à la Dr. Evil. No, if at all possible, he will replicate the impossibly beautiful Scarlett Johansson. (See also: Scarlett Johansson 2.0)
