Even though it feels like streaming has taken over the world, going to the cinema is still an experience. The atmospheric sound, the massive screen, and of course eating all of your popcorn before the trailers have finished. This month, there are plenty of blockbuster new releases you can go and see. Here is a list of what’s dropping in Australian cinemas this June.
Jurassic World: Dominion
If you’re a fan of dinosaurs, the newest edition to the Jurassic World saga is set to be a must-see. Jurassic World: Dominion centres on the events following the destruction of Isla Nublar, where dinosaurs now co-exist with humans. The star-studded cast includes Sam Neill, Chris Pratt, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard, and more.
The Kitchen Brigade
This French comedy film centres on sous-chef Cathy who wants to open her own restaurant. However, financial struggles get in the way and instead, she takes up a job at a shelter for young migrants. Here, her passion for cooking is taken to the next level when she begins enriching the lives of the young people.
Time to revisit the Toy Story world with this animated film based on Buzz Lightyear’s adventures “to infinity and beyond”. This one is perfect for the kids, and for the big kids who still love the old movies.
This biopic spans 20 years of Elvis Presley’s life, from his rise to fame in the 50s and the complicated relationship he had with his manager through to his love life with Priscilla. Austin Butler, who plays Elvis, was reportedly coached well in advance to shooting so that his voice could sound as similar to Presley’s as possible. This included watching plenty of Elvis’ past concerts.
Minions: The Rise of Gru
Based in the 1970s, the newest Minion edition follows a 12-year-old boy (Gru) hatching a plan to become a supervillain. Alongside the Minions, they cause some mayhem, but it doesn’t all go to plan.
In an attempt to save their marriage, a suburban couple visits a new-age retreat. Though, their path to rekindling their spark will involve a lot of amusement and humiliation. If you’re after an outrageously comedic watch, this could be it.
Winning 7 Cesar Awards including Best Film, this French movie follows a young man in Paris in the 1800s, who aspires to be a writer and later becomes a journalist.
The Black Phone
One for the horror lovers, this unsettling movie follows a child abduction, where the 13-year-old who was taken starts getting calls from the killer’s previous victims whilst locked in a basement. Sounds terrifying, and if it’s anything like Sinister, it absolutely will be!
