04 Jun Movies You Might Want to See for June
It’s the month of June, the rains are coming, the horror story of K-12 school is opening, summer is over, but these are no reasons not to capture a movie or two that you like during the weekend or during a late afternoon weekday. A few are already showing while the rest will be opening throughout June.
Me Before You (Presently showing in selected cinemas)
Everyone knows Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones fame, and in this film she is Louisa, from a town in the English countryside working odd jobs to help her family make ends meet. Then she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker who has become wheelchair bound after an accident two years prior. Will has clearly given up on life, but Louisa is determined to show him that life is worth living.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (Presently showing)
The much awaited sequel to the 2014 hit movie. Will Arnett and Megan Fox return to reprise their roles, and is still produced by Michael Bay, but this time directed by David Green. This definitely assures more action scenes to come.
Finding Dory (June 17)
With Nemo safe and with his family and gang, it’s their turn to find Dory along the California coastline. This storyline takes place a year after “Finding Nemo.” There is a host of new characters that will prove important to the story and to the background of Dory’s life.
Independence Day: Resurgence (June 24)
The much awaited sequel minus two characters killed off. Everyone knew the aliens would be back, and twenty years after, they do, but on a more destructive global spectacle. However, using recovered alien technology, the armed forces of Earth have collaborated to defend the planet. With the aliens hell-bent on our extinction, can humanity survive?
Now You See Me 2 (June 10)
Another much awaited sequel, unfortunately, from a somewhat underrated film that should be a box-office hit for its great storyline and really awesome performances from virtually the whole cast. The setting is a year after the first film, and the magicians resurface once again to perform, only to face a new enemy who wants to hire them to pull off the most dangerous heist of their careers.
The Conjuring 2 (June 10)
The much awaited sequel from lovers of the horror genre and cult follower of the first film. Reprising their roles as renowned demonologists, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson undergo their most terrifying paranormal investigation, traveling to north London to help a single mother of four kids living in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
The Duel (June 24)
Followers of Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson will find this film both intriguing and action filled. The film is an 1880’s western about a Texas Ranger sent to a frontier town to investigate a series of murders and disappearances initiated by the local evangelical minister preacher.
Warcraft (Presently showing)
Lovers of the Blizzard strategy games have been looking forward to Warcraft, although in truth, when it opened last week, the reviews were either negative or disappointing. But if you’re die-hard fan of the Warcraft saga and only want the action minus the acting and bad scripting, then by all means watch how the realms of humans and Orcs clash in a fight for survival and invasion.
