Ten Movies You Need To Check Out In June Other Than ‘Wonder Woman’

With a new month upon us and ‘Wonder Woman‘ about to make history at the box office, June is set to be the hottest month of the Summer Movie Season. Here are ten other choices that should definitely be on your radar as well.

Wonder Woman Gal Gadot

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (June 2nd)

Based on the International children’s bestseller, Ed Helms and Kevin Hart seek to bring all the rude and crude humor to life. Check out the trailer.

The Mummy (June 9th)

Universal’s first steps into their highly anticipated Dark Universe, brings us Tom Cruise screaming and running from one badass female mummy. Check out the trailer!

All Eyez On Me (June 16th)

The highly anticipated release that boasts that it has the “untold” story of Tupac Shakur. This might be one of the sleeper hits of the summer. Check out the trailer!

Cars 3 (June 16th)

The third installment of the Cars franchise ushers in a return to the series’s racing roots. Lightning Mcqueen (Owen Wilson) has to realize that he’s no longer what he once was and begins to ponder his legacy.

Rough Night (June 16th)

Scarlett Johanson and Kate McKinnon star in what will be the ultimate “girls night out” flick this summer. This one was written by the writers from Broad City so this does look promising.

Transformers: The Last Knight (June 21st)

Whether Micheal Bay continues to make these Transformers bigger and even longer seems to be irrelevant, people are driven to watch things from their childhood. They also love seeing Bay blow up cool cars. Check out the trailer!

The Beguiled (June 23rd)

Sofia Coppola’s latest project has an extremely strong cast anchored by Nicole Kidman, Kristen Dunst, and Colin Farrell. If there’s anything that you can learn from this trailer, it’s that don’t mess with Nicole Kidman when she has access to an anatomy book.

Baby Driver (June 28th)

A great cast, slick cars, guns, kick-ass chases, and a great soundtrack all point towards Edgar Wright’s latest release being the breakout hit of the summer.

Despicable Me 3 (June 30th)

Illumination Entertainment has quickly realized that anything involving the Minions is destined to do well at the box-office. Steve Carrell and Kristen Wiig return in a film that your children (and mine) will be dying to see.

The House (June 30th)

Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler star as a couple of clueless parents who are trying to raise money for their daughter’s tuition by starting an underground casino. This looks funny but I am concerned with it going up against the new Despicable Me movie.
