The year is flying by, but the good news is there’s still plenty of things to look forward to at the box office in 2016. There’s a sense of familiarity to some of the movies next month with two long-awaited sequels and a video game adaptation set for release. Here’s a quick look at some of the movies on the way in June 2016.
After Angry Birds, Warcraft is another movie based on a video-game, this time arguably the biggest MMORPG videogame of all ‘World of Warcraft’. I suppose it was only a matter of time until a ‘Lord of the Rings’ epic spawned onto the silver screen and with a cast including Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster and Dominic Cooper and directed by Duncan Jones, who also directed the excellent ‘Moon’ (and who is also David Bowie’s son) it could actually be rather good.
Warcraft is released on June 10th
Independence Day: Resurgence
There’s no Will Smith this time, but Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch and Vivica A. Fox from the original Independence Day movie reprise their roles, along with newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Jesse Usher, and Joey King in what promises to be a CGI overload for the senses as the aliens come back to try and take over (again).
Independence Day: Resurgence is released on June 24th
Elvis & Nixon
Starring Michael Shannon as Elvis and Kevin Spacey as Nixon, this movie dramatises a true real-life meeting between the worlds biggest star and the then President of the United States. According to who you believe Elvis was actually an FBI agent who tried to get John Lennon thrown out of the US for supposed communist tendencies. Also starring in the movie is Jack Ass star Johnny Knoxville and Tom’s son, Colin (Hanks).
Elvis & Nixon is released in on June 24th
One of the biggest hits of the year so far, Captain America: Civil War is expected to have some box office competition with ‘Finding Dory’ in 2016, here’s a teaser trailer to the sequel of 2003’s Pixar hit ‘Finding Nemo’. Ellen DeGeneres returns as the voice of the forgetful fish, but now it’s Dory who is looking for her family, not the easiest thing to do when you have a 10 second memory span.
Finding Dory is released in the UK on June 27th
