Top Films for June

TNG_Day_#41_01222015-172.dng

How are we in June already?! I feel like I have only just written about May and here we are once again. I’m particularly unimpressed and uninspired with this month’s lot to be honest. Normally I have a huge list and cut it down to a few, but this month I haven’t even had to do that.

Anyway, enough waffling, here are my top picks for June:

The Nice Guys 

Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling have the ultimate bromantic chemistry in this comedy caper that looks totally hilarious. And obvs I’m going to see anything with Ryan in. He plays a bad detective who become unlikely partners with a brash enforcer to solve the disappearance of a young girl named Amelia. Released: 3rd June

The Keeping Room

I actually saw this at the 2014 London Film Festival and I cannot believe it’s take so long to be released in cinemas! You can see my 2014 review here. Brit Marling and Hailee Steinfeld star as two girls keeping their house and farm warm while the rest of their family is off in the American Civil War. Everything is going peachy until one of them bumps into a soldier (Sam Worthington) who won’t leave them alone. This is a serious slow-burner but it builds up to a whopping crescendo! Released: 17th June

Me Before You 

Get those tissues at the ready! I am a big fan of the Jojo Moyes weepie book so obviously I’m all over this. I have seen and reviewed it already (see here) and was very pleased with the adaptation. Emilia Clarke plays Louisa, who becomes carer to an angry paraplegic millionaire (Sam Claflin) and love eventually ensues. It is romantic, funny and incredibly sad. Released: 3rd June

The Secret Life of Pets 

The sound of this sucked but then the trailer left me in stitches so I’m willing to give it a go. The animation is about a terrier (Louis C.K.) and his newly adopted rival Newfoundland (Eric Stonestreet). They have to put their differences aside when abandoned rabbit Snowball (Kevin Hart) comes on the scene determined to get retaliation on loved pets. This looks funny as hell. Released: 18th

Independence Day: Resurgence 

I’m not sold on this sequel, released and set 20 years after events of the 1996 original, but I liked the first one enough to check it out. It’s basically the same thing – another alien attack – but it has a lot of the old crew back including Jeff Goldblum and writer/director Roland Emmerich. Liam Hemsworth and Maika Monroe join the cast. Released: 23rd June

Elvis & Nixon

Michael Shannon playing Elvis Presley and Kevin Spacey doing Richard Nixon?! Sign me up for this! This comedy-drama looks odd but interesting and focuses on a real-life meeting the duo had at the White House in 1970 when Elvis wanted to become an undercover agent. Yes, really. Released: 24th June
