Top Films for June 2018

It is the start of a new month, which can only mean one thing – movie preview time!! Here are my recommendations for cinema releases in the UK in June.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Well, I am a HUGE Jurassic Park fan, so this is definitely top of my list for June. I haven’t been particularly won over by the trailers for this but I did love Jurassic World, as well as Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, so I reckon I will be into it. This time they team up to help save the dinosaurs from a volcanic eruption on the island. Released: 6th June


If you want a compelling insight into the mind of a design genius, then this documentary about fashion designer Alexander McQueen is for you. I have seen it already (review on its way) and I can confirm it is interesting, informative and pretty heartbreaking. Released: 8th June


Ocean’s 8

I really want this to be good. I’m excited to see this amazing ensemble of actresses – Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna and Awkwafina – starring together in one film. Bullock is Debbie Ocean, sister of Danny from the main franchise, and she puts together a heist at the Met Gala following her release from prison. Here for it! Released: 18th June


Although I am being more adventurous with horror movies these days, Hereditary is probably one I’m going to avoid because supernatural, demon type stuff freaks me out too much and stays with me for ages. It stars Toni Collette and is about a family who starts being haunted following their reclusive grandmother’s death. I’ve heard very good things about it; hopefully you won’t be as chicken as me. Released: 15th June



I am a sucker for a good survival story so Adrift looks right up my street. Based on a real-life story, Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin play a couple who get stranded in the middle of the Pacific Ocean during a hurricane and must find their way to Hawaii with no navigation and communication tools. Released: 29th June

Freak Show

I saw Freak Show at the BFI Flare Festival and it was excellent (review here). The always-brilliant Alex Lawther stars as Billy Bloom, a young boy who wears fabulous, feminine clothes and is moved to live with his dad and is put in a conservative school which doesn’t like how different he is. It is funny, moving and totally entertaining. Released: 22nd June

Sicario 2: Soldado

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Sicario – I liked it but not as much as everyone else seemed to – but I’m gonna check this out anyway. Josh Brolin (who is everywhere!) and Benicio del Toro return from the first film and this time they have to team up again as cartels have started smuggling terrorists over the U.S.-Mexico border. Released: 29th June
