Ah, July. We're not necessarily looking forward to your dog days of summer (unless it really does mean more dogs in the office), but we are looking forward to a lot of things this month including two big North America birthdays, two big birthdays for sci-fi fans everywhere, and two big returns for a couple of our favorites!
- July 1st - Canada Day!
- July 1st - Terminator: Genisys. (There are several "I'll be back jokes" we don't think we need to make here, but we're definitely excited to be going back to the theater for this one.)
- July 2nd - 5th - Anime Expo 2015 in Los Angeles.
- July 4th - Fourth of July (Fireworks!)
- July 5th - Shark Week 2015 kicks off. We know, but we can't help watching.
- July 7th - Kim Stanley Robinson's Aurora comes out in hardcover (+ ebook, audiobook) in the USA/Canada
- July 9th - 12th - San Diego Comic Con. We'll be there, come find us (more info coming soon)!
- July 10th - Minions. They so crazy; we love!
- July 13th - Harrison Ford AND Patrick Stewart's Birthday. (Let it sink in.) Excuse us, we have cakes to bake.
- July 14th - Ready Player One author Ernest Cline has a second book coming out: Armada
- July 17th - Ant-Man.
- July 22nd - Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (sigh, see our comment above re Shark Week.)
- July 24th - Aliens inspired by video games (and Peter Dinklage as an '80s arcade champ)? We're hopeful about Pixels.
- July 30th - August 2nd - Grab your decks, dice, and boards - it's time for Gen Con!
- July 31st - The cast of Wet Hot American Summer is back with a prequel series - cue up the Netflix binge!
And what are YOU looking forward to in July that we've missed? Or that we mentioned? We wanna know!
