As the Summer officially begins, we’re bringing back one of our oldest features, and taking a brief look at what filmic treats the month of June 2015 has to offer.
Paul Feig, director of the terrific Bridesmaids and The Heat, reunites once more with Melissa McCarthy for action-comedy Spy, also starring Jude Law, Jason Statham and Rose Byrne. Expect jokes about McCarthy’s weight, and lots of other moderately funny matter.
A horror franchise that just won’t die, Insidious Chapter 3 is the second Insidious film to hit cinemas in a 12-month period. This time, however, director James Wan and star Patrick Wilson are nowhere to be seen, and neither- we hope- will the audience.
HBO’s Entourage gets a long-awaited big-screen debut in the vein of the Sex & The City films. Expect prostitutes, cocaine, fast cards and a general aura of sleaze.
Chris Pratt takes the lead in the summer’s most high-profile reboot, Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World. Spielberg nostalgists and small children will be enthralled. Everyone else will probably shrug.
Sundance smash hit Me & Earl & The Dying Girl arrives as some Jurassic counter programming. We’re far more excited for this indie teen comedy than for Trevorrow’s film, honestly.
Near-universal acclaim/relief has greeted Pixar’s First Original Film That Isn’t Brave Since 2009 at early screenings. We’re very anxious and excited. Inside Out could be a masterpiece.
One of our most anticipated films of the year. The sequel to the decade’s best American mainstream comedy. Seth MacFarlane’s follow-up to A Million Ways To Die in The West. Ted 2 is many things, and hopefully Being Good is one of them.
Our Top 3 Picks:
- Ted 2
- Inside Out
- Me & Earl & The Dying Girl
So that’s June 2015 in a nutshell. What films are you excited to see this month? Let us know!
