Can you believe June is here already? Summer is flying by so fast and yet there is so much to watch on the cinema and Netflix this month. Check out all the best of what to what on the cinema and Netflix in Ireland this June
2nd June – Baywatch
Yes you read that right Baywatch is back with a brand new remake. I can imagine this movie will be the ultimate cringe-fest but the trailer looks like a laugh a minute.
2nd June – Wonder Woman
I’m sure by now you have seen the ads and the trailers bouncing around social media. Wonder Woman is finally here and hitting the cinemas in June. This movie gives information about her origin and how she ended up coming to earth and saving the planet. DC has gotten a hard time with their last few movies but I think they may be onto a winner with this one.
2nd June – My life as a Courgette
This is a stop-motion animation about a boy who is sent to a foster home after his mum dies. Trough the trails and tribulations of having to deal with living in an orphanage he learns to love and look for a new family. This is getting excellent reviews on rotten tomatoes with a score of 100%
9th June – The Mummy
The Mummy movie that we loved in the 00’s is now being re-made starring Sofia Boutella, Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis and Russell Crowe. (What is up with all the re-makes this year?) I think this version will be a bit more intense than the last movie version of the story.
9th June – My Cousin Rachel
This movie is based on the English Novel by the same name written by Daphne du Maurier (she also wrote the famous novel Rachel). The story is about an Englishman who plots revenge against his cousin, who he thinks murdered his guardian. however his plans get skewed when he begins to fall in love with her. (Yes I know their cousins but it’s England and it’s a period drama so therefore its ok?)
16th June – Churchill
A biopic about the famous British Prime Minister starring Brian Cox. John Lithgow gave an excellent portrayal of Churchill in the TV series The Crown. It would be hard to beat his performance.
16th June – Whitney: Can I Be Me
A documentary on the life of Whitney Houston. Its getting great reviews as it looks back on the life of one of the most talented pop stars.
23rd June – The Beguiled
