Movies, movies, movies! June is all about the movies.
This month really kicks off summer, which means it’s time to focus on one of our favorite things about the season…summer blockbusters.
In between beach days and vacation mode, you can find us at the theaters watching all of the great films Hollywood has to offer in June. From superhero flicks to animated classics, this is going to be a month you’re not going to want to forgo a night at the movies.
Whether you love Sophie Turner and can’t wait to see her in Dark Phoenix, or are ready to see what happens next in the Toy Story tale—AKA what are Woody and Buzz really up to these days—there is something for everyone to watch this month.
Perhaps you’re all about the next chapter of Men in Black, or maybe you’re a thriller fan and can’t wait to see Child’s Play.
You could be a major fan of The Beatles and want to watch Yesterday just to hear their songs come to life once again. Or, you want to watch The Secret Life of Pets 2 and pretend you’re a kid again.
Truly, this month has it all and we are so here for each and every movie release.
Check them all out below:
Dark Phoenix: June 9
The highly-anticipated X-Men movie hits theaters on June 9. While on a mission in space, Jean Grey (Turner) is hit by a cosmic force that should’ve killed her, but instead transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all, Dark Phoenix. Her new powers, inability to control them and uncertainty in herself tears the X-Men family apart and leaves her with a major decision.

Three years later fans are getting exactly what they want…another Secret Life of Pets movie!
