New in Theaters for June

A lot of movies are premiering in June, but only a few of them interest me. This is why they might be worth watching... or avoiding.

The Bad Batch (June 23, 2017)
A dystopian love story amidst a community of cannibals that stars Keanu Reeves, Jason Momoa, and Jim Carrey. I have no idea what this is, but I'm sold on the premise alone.

Baby Driver (June 30, 2017)
Terrible name aside, I'm an Edgar Wright fan. This heist movie seems poised to take advantage of Wright's talents.

All Eyez on Me (June 16, 2017)
The Tupac Shakur biopic. I though Straight Outta Compton was going to be a indulgent puff piece, and it turned out to be excellent. I'm thinking this will follow suit.

The Beguiled (June 23, 2017)
Set at an all girls school during the Civil War, a wounded Union soldiers upsets the balance in the house. Stars Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning, and Kirsten Dunst. Farrell always provides a solid performance and Kidman is straight off of her solid turn in her Big Little Lies role.

The Hero (June 9, 2017)
An ailing movie star must confront his past and mortality. Starring Sam Elliot, Krysten Ritter, Laura Prepon, and Nick Offerman.
Offerman did The Founder last year, and if that's any indication, he can pick good roles. While Elliot did do Netflix's The Ranch, I'm hoping this is a rebound for him.

Wonder Woman (June 2, 2017)
Outside of Batman, DC has had a hard time making a successful movie franchise. Batman v Superman wasn't good, and large chunks of it were mini-trailers for future DC movies, Wonder Woman included. How many cameos will this have?

The Mummy (June 9, 2017)
Isn't this a Brendan Frasier movie? In this one Tom Cruise takes on a mummy awoken from her tomb. Seems it might be the Frasier version. I want to call this creatively bankrupt, but I'll refrain. The Cruise Missile has been successful, but this might be pushing it.

Transformers: The Last Knight (June 23, 2017)
How are these movies still being made? Who is paying money to see this franchise and continuing the cycle? At this point this is less movies and more a Michael Bay collection plate.
