A week after the release of a major superhero movie and one week before the release of a major blockbuster, the film industry will take things a bit more calmly with three lower-profile releases. The lack of a major title in this week's lineup likely has to do with the continued success of "Ant-Man."

Here is a good look at some new movies to see during the weekend of July 24:

Southpaw: Arguably the hottest release of the weekend, the Weinstein Company movie features Jake Gyllenhaal in a performance that could bring him some glory during awards season. The film tells the story of Billy Hope, a pro boxer who goes from fame to poverty after the death of his wife. Through his own self-awareness and reason, he must learn to lift himself back up and rebuild his life for himself and his daughter.

The film is likely a major awards player, which makes the summer release rather surprising. Another boxing film that hit the theaters in the summer was Ron Howard's "Cinderella Man." When that film was released in 2005, it flopped at the box office, earning just $66 million out of its reported $88 million.

Pixels: The plot for the film is as follows: "When aliens intercept video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack Earth, using the games as models. Knowing that he must employ a similar strategy, President Will Cooper (Kevin James) recruits his childhood pal, former video-game champ and home-theater installer Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), to lead a team of old-school arcade players (Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad) and a military specialist (Michelle Monaghan) to save the planet."

No one knows what to expect from this original concept, but it could play well with nostalgic video game lovers.

Paper Towns: A teen drama starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne, this film is likely going to struggle at the box office. The film tells the story of Quentin and his search for the missing Margo. Teen films are hard to predict as such film like "The Duff" proved to be a knockout while others such as "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" struggled to have any impact. The former film was a product of good reviews and being released in the rather light winter period. "Me and Earl" was released at the start of the summer months and wound up overshadowed by other major productions. The same could happen to "Paper Towns."

Other films hitting theaters this weekend will include "Phoenix," "Samba," "Unexpected," "The Vatican Tapes," and the documentary "Warx2."
