Sure, you could spend your summer watching all the new movies from the comfort of your couch (or, rather, the discomfort of your couch). But there’s nothing like seeing a movie in a theater. In fact, here are some movies that should make you go to the cinema this June if you’ve been busy all throughout the month.
- Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
- No Time to Die
- The Northman
- Fire Island
- The Card Counter
1. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2023)
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is an action-packed movie that follows Doctor Strange, a man who loses his mind after an accident. The movie starts off with Doctor Strange getting lost on his way to help a patient but instead finds himself trapped in the Dark Dimension. The only way he can escape is if he finds something called “the Wand of Watoomb”, which has been stolen by Nightmare Queen Sise-Neg. If you enjoy watching movies where one person struggles with mental illness while they try to find themselves, then this film is perfect for you. Doctor Strange is played by Benedict Cumberbatch and directed by Scott Derrickson.
2. No Time to Die
No Time to Die is an upcoming action movie starring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, and Idris Elba. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. It is a sequel to the first movie, as we find our heroes in another race against time. Directed by Kevin Munroe (TMNT), No Time To Die will star Dwayne Johnson as Dr. Isaac Sachs with Jason Statham as his right-hand man Jack Horton, who are once again fighting bad guys in order to save mankind from impending doom. The movie releases in theaters on June 12, 2022.
3. The Northman
The Northman is a movie about a young boy who has to fight for his life in a world where he doesn’t belong. The Northman is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Clive Owen as the titular character, Eric the Northman. The movie takes place in a fictional fantasy world where Icelanders are referred to as Northmen and live in villages called “North Villages”, which are separated from regular villages by mountains and glaciers. Eric (Owen) is an orphaned Icelandic boy adopted by an evil wizard named Surtur who plans on taking over the world with his army of trolls, giants, and other creatures from Norse mythology.
While there aren’t many female characters in this movie (with one being played by Eva Green), it does feature some strong female warriors such as Valkyrie, Sigyn (Green), Thrudhilde/Thora (Kate Beckinsale), Hildr/Valkyrie II/Mother Nature (Bjork), and Jordhogg/Valkyrie III/Norns all of whom kick major butt throughout the film.
4. Fire Island
Fire Island is the perfect film if you’re looking for a fun, carefree movie. It’s an ensemble comedy about a group of friends who go to Fire Island for a vacation. The cast includes Jennifer Garner and Gillian Jacobs as two members of this group (and Steven Spielberg’s wife), while Michelle Monaghan also stars as one of their friends. The film was directed by Jill Soloway, who has done some great work in television that you may want to check out if you love this movie; she directed Transparent and created I Love Dick.
5. The Card Counter
The Card Counter is a movie based on the true story of how a mathematics genius turned a student’s life in Las Vegas into a rollercoaster of success and deceit. The main character was played by Tom Hardy, who plays an alcoholic gambler who becomes a card counter at casinos. He goes from being penniless to becoming one of the best players in the world within just two years and this is all before he even reached his 30th birthday.
The movie was directed by Paul McGuigan and written by James Dearden (who also wrote Silence Of The Lambs). It was released on June 22nd, 2022, grossing $122 million worldwide on its first weekend and making $1 billion worldwide over its theatrical run. In 2022 it received three Academy Award nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor (Tom Hardy), and Best Adapted Screenplay (James Dearden). It won none but did win four Golden Globes: Best Picture Drama; Best Director Drama; Best Actor Drama; Best Actress Comedy/Musical (Haley Joel Osment).
