The Last Letter From Your Lover (new on Netflix)

Felicity Jones, Shailene Woodley and Callum Turner star in Augustine Frizzell’s drama The Last Letter From Your Lover (July 23) in which Jones plays a journalist who discovers a series of letters between two star-crossed lovers played in flashbacks by Woodley and Turner. Also out today is season two of the Kevin Smith-created Masters of the Universe: Revelations, an animated take on the ’80s classic that’s also the best-reviewed Smith project in a very long time. Roland Møller (A Hijacking, Atomic Blonde) and Peri Baumeister star in the German plane-hijacking thriller Blood Sky Red (July 23), while Christina Milian and Jay Pharoah topline the rom-com Resort to Love (July 29). July 26 also sees the release of season 10 of the OG Walking Dead, which has yet to be entirely supplanted by spin-off series. 

In terms of non-original movies, the highlight this week is likely Guy Ritchie’s super-serious heist thriller Wrath of Man starring Jason Statham, Holt McCallany and Josh Hartnett. If that doesn’t float your boat, there’s indie hit The Last Black Man in San Francisco as well as The Angry Birds Movie 2 (July 27).
