The most notable release of July is Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull, which will release on July 12, 2022, in 4K. The film stars Robert De Niro in his Oscar-winning role of Jake La Motta, a rising middleweight boxer that becomes a superstar filled with paranoia and rage as he goes throughout his career. Much like other Criterion releases, Raging Bull will release with a variety of special features, including new video essays, audio commentaries, and more.

Also releasing on July 12, 2022, David Leon’s Summertime will receive a new 4K digital restoration for its Blu-ray release, complete with the uncompressed monaural soundtrack of the film. Originally released in 1955, the film stars the legendary Katharine Hepburn, and tells the story of a middle-aged American tourist who confronts her own deep-seated insecurities as she meets a charming Italian shopkeeper (Rossano Brazzi).

On July 19, 2022, Carl Franklin’s Devil in a Blue Dress (which is also getting a 4K UHD release) and Ryusuke’s Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car will release. The former is an adaptation of Walter Mosley’s novel of the same name, and tells the story of ex-GI Easy Rawlins as he’s recruited to find the missing lover of a mayoral candidate. As for Drive My Car, the 2021 release was an award season darling, earning Best Picture and Best Director nominations – as well as winning the Oscar for Best International Feature Film.
