It’s the June school holidays and that means… summer is coming. With summer comes a whole bunch of blockbuster movies that you just have to watch…
Beyond X-Men: Apocalypse and Angry birds, there’s actually a pretty good range of shows one should consider watching. So here’s a quick reminder on the big shows coming out this month.
1. Me Before You (2nd June 2016)
If you’re a fan of Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones), you might like to see this movie. It’s one of those typical romance movies where they embark on an adventure and find love. Woo..
2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of The Shadows (2nd June 2016)
If you were born in the 80s or 90s, you’ll probably remember (I hope…) watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on television. Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael are back on the big screens with this new movie. And of course, they will once again face the mighty Shredder and his foot soldiers but with another new enemy.
3. Warcraft: The Beginning (8th June 2016)
Possibly one of the biggest openings of the month. If you’ve never heard of Warcraft, I’d suggest you google it. Warcraft is simply one of the best Real Time Strategy (RTS) PC games of all time and its sequel, World of Warcraft. While WoW has lost much of its player base since its heyday in the late 2000s, it is still one of the biggest MMORPGs of all time and still has a decent number of subscribers.
This movie, which has been delayed for a few years, somewhat resembles the story behind Warcraft 1: Orcs & Humans. It shows the initial interactions between the Orcs of Draenor and the Humans of Azeroth, culminating in a big battle. It was hoped this film would end the Curse of the Video Game Movies but if early reviews are to be believed… maybe not.
4. Now You See Me 2 (16 June 2016)
The Four Horsemen are back for a second round in Now You See Me 2. And they have a new enemy, played by Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame. Just one other notable thing, Isla Fisher did not return to play her role as Henley Reeves and a new fourth horseman comes in the shape of Lizzy Caplan. Still one of the shows worth watching.
5. Independence Day: Resurgence (23 June 2016)
I can’t believe it’s been 20 years…. but here’s another big sequel. More importantly, it features Singapore or rather Singapore’s destruction. If you look closely, you can see Singapore’s downtown core being blown apart by the aliens.
The movie continues on from where the previous film ended… 20 years has passed and humans have taken alien technology and added them to Earth’s defenses. But that is not enough and we will cities fall.
