The SAGindie staff is ready to start summer the only way we know how: By planning our movie-viewing schedules! Plot your own viewing habits for the month of June by checking out the June movie release calendar, and let us know what films you’re most excited to see this month!
Turns out one of our staff’s most-anticipated films won’t be coming out in June after all. See you at Christmas, Under the Silver Lake!
Upgrade looks like a super dumb-fun action movie, and I’m just hoping they don’t show all the great fight scenes in the trailer. I must admit I am a sucker for the Jackass franchise, which makes me want to see Action Point with no shame. While I didn’t even really like Mr. Rogers as a kid, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is still definitely going to make me cry. Hereditary will haunt me for my eternity. Eating Animals will depress me about our agriculture system. And I’m also looking forward to
two LA-centric movies, one (Under the Silver Lake) which will make the city feel like an upside-down, wondrous place of kinetic magic and intrigue, another (Izzy Gets the Fuck Across Town) which will make the city feel like a hellscape of desperation and inconvenient traffic. Double-feature! (Update: Nope, single-feature.) And Woman Walks Ahead looks important, but in a good way.
Under the Silver Lake – All of my non-L.A. friends are going to judge me for loving this.
Hearts Beat Loud – This one’s for my dad. Who also plays guitar. And also wants to start a band with me.
Hereditary – I’m still having nightmares from the trailer so I can’t wait to not sleep for a month.
American Animals – I have to see if Movie Pass chose wisely.
Hotel Artemis – Brian Tyree Henry has a small part in this which just adds to the fact that the cast of Atlanta are dominating the features this summer! Already saw Deadpool 2 (Zazie Beetz) and Solo (Donald Glover), planning to see Sorry To Bother You (Lakeith Stanfield) in July.
Three Identical Strangers – Didn’t get a chance to see this doc at Sundance, but heard it was intense and a must see!
Nancy – Another “one that got away” at Sundance.
The Incredibles 2
