BEVERLY HILLS, CA – June 20, 2017 – Playboy celebrates the first day of Summer, by introducing The Adventure Issue (#TheAdventureIssue) with July Playmate, Dana Taylor gracing the cover. From adventures around the world and into the wild, to a humorous trip through Trump’s America and the very best of Detroit’s nightlife with Kid Rock’s former guitarist, the July/August 2017 issue is full of culture and paradise. Planning a Summer getaway also just got easier with Instagram star Jack Morris, who offers solo travel tips and must-have essentials.
The Playboy Interview continues to be the intellectual centerpiece of the magazine and the July/August issue does not disappoint with an 8-page conversation with acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan. The man behind some of the most ambitious blockbusters opens up about his upbringing, fashion style while on set, filmmaking in Hollywood, what inspires him, and of course, his highly anticipated epic action thriller, Dunkirk, in theaters July 21.
Also tapping into one of the country’s most controversial issues, the July/August issue offers insights directly from the White House press room, the war against fake news, a deep look into Bill Nye’s fight for rationalism, and a story of innovation and immigration with an examination of Elon Musk’s Hyperloop.
