Here are my most anticpated movies releases this June
Wonder Woman – June 2nd
DC’s Wonder Woman is finally coming to the big screen and it looks like it could be the best of the lot yet (Man of Steel, BVS & Suicide Squad promised a lot but never delivered!). Gal Gadot for me is the perfect Dianna, she’s beautiful and strong and absolutely kills it in the stunts that can be seen in the trailer. A superhero film directed by a Woman (Patty Jenkins) and starring a woman in the main role is unfortunately new and noteworthy when it really shouldn’t be and hopefully, Wonder Woman will prove that more female-driven films (both in front and behind the camera) will come our way.
The Bad Batch – June 23rd
I think this is the film’s American release date so I have no idea if it will also be released in the UK or anywhere else on this same day or in the same month even, but I’m going to talk about it anyway. The Bad Batch looks like a totally messed up film, it’s described on IMDB as ‘A dystopian love story in a Texas wasteland and set in a community of cannibals’ which totally piqued my interest. It’s gory and it’s bleak but it looks like it could potentially be an awesome film (it also looks like it could be utter shit in the same capacity, so we’ll see).
Okja – June 28th
Possibly the film I’m most looking forward to this month is Bong Joon Ho’s (the genius behind Snowpeircer) Okja. The film is being released on Netflix later this month, which is awesome as it means that I’ll actually get to see it straight away unlike some other Korean films that got the shortest of releases in England namely Train to Busan & The Handmaiden that I missed last year. Okja follows a young girl on her mission to rescue her animal friend from an evil corporation. The subject matter looks like it will analyse the current food industry and Animal Rights issues through quite an interesting and meaningful story.
