Scott Eastwood, Caleb Landry Jones, and Orlando Bloom fight the Taliban in The Outpost (VOD July 3), a war movie based on the nonfiction novel by Jake Tapper. Infection fears may provide the horror thriller The Beach House (Shudder July 9) an extra charge of unease. Stage, film, and television star Olympia Dukakis gets the documentary profile treatment in Olympia (virtual theaters July 10). Don’t worry, it’s not another zombie movie—the undead of We Are Little Zombies (virtual theaters July 10) are four Japanese orphans who form a punk band in this colorful Sundance favorite. One month after Da 5 Bloods, along comes Never Too Late (virtual theaters July 10), starring James Cromwell as a Vietnam veteran and one-time POW plotting an allegedly comical escape from a retirement home. As its title suggests, Fatal Affair (Netflix July 16) is the latest spin on Fatal Attraction, pitting a lawyer (Nia Long) against a dangerously obsessed admirer (Omar Epps).
