This June there are a lot of great films coming down the pipe. You could go with over-the-top hilarity or straight up action. Heck if you want to get dark and dirty there is a little bit of that too.

Johnny Knoxville returns to his Jackass ways, Shailene Woodley gives an outstanding performance, and Josh Brolin continues the year of the Brolin.

If you want to see one of the scariest films of the year, we have your hook up but maybe you’ll need a dose of Mr. Rogers as a chaser.

Below are 10 films coming out this month that you should definitely check out. Okay, maybe not Action Point, but to each their own.

Action Point

Release Date: June 1, 2018
Cast:  Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius, Dan Bakkedahl, and Matt Schulze
Director: Tim Kirkby

From the guys who brought you the Jackass films, that spawned a generation of dumb kids doing really dumb shit, now have their very own movie that actually has a story and characters.

A young girl, who spends a day with her grandfather (Johnny Knoxville), hears stories about how he once owned and operated an amusement park called Action Point that didn’t necessarily follow all safety standards and rules.

Of course, they also do really crazy, “don’t do this at home,” type stunts. The early reviews haven’t been strong, but that won’t stop its built-in audience from going.

Adrift

Release Date: June 1, 2018
Cast: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Hawthorne
Director: Baltasar Kormákur

A film that’s garnering a ton of buzz especially for Shailene Woodley’s performance as the real-life world-traveler Tami Oldham.

After meeting Richard (Sam Claflin) a handsome sailor, Tami joins him on a 4,000-mile voyage across the Pacific Ocean.

During their travel, they learn of an approaching hurricane and attempt to avoid it, unintentionally sailing directly into the storm. Richard tells Tami to go below deck where she is knocked unconscious. When she wakes, the storm is over, the boat is badly damaged, and Richard is nowhere in sight.

This is an incredible true story about survival and love. One of the year’s best films.

First Reformed

Release Date: (Limited Release)
June 1 – Vancouver
June 8 – Montréal, Québec, Ottawa, Edmonton, Winnipeg
June 15 – Calgary, Halifax, Kingston
June 22 – Victoria
June 29 – Saskatoon, Regina

Cast: Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Cedric Kyles
Director: Paul Schrader

From the writer of Taxi DriverRaging Bull, and The Last Temptation of Christ, bring us another thinker piece in First Reformed.

The story is centred around a pastor of a small New England church (Ethan Hawke) who spirals out of control after a soul-shaking encounter with an unstable environmental activist and his pregnant wife (Amanda Seyfried) in a chilling thriller.

Ethan Hawke gives one of his best performances of his career.

Hereditary

Release Date: June 8, 2018
Cast:  Toni Collette, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd, Gabriel Byrne
Director: Ari Aster

Not only is Hereditary one of the best films of the year, it is one of the scariest we’ve seen in a long time. Go into this film blind and you’ll leave chilled.

Following the death of her estranged mother and family patriarch, Annie Graham (Toni Collette) tries to quell her grief in her artwork. However, she starts to notice strange occurrences following her family, mostly concentrated on her 13-year-old daughter Charlie (Milly Shapiro).

Go see this movie!

Hotel Artemis

Release Date: June 8, 2018
Cast: Jodie Foster, Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, Dave Bautista
Director: Drew Pearce

This has a whole John Wick vibe to it.

A woman known as the Nurse runs a secret, members-only hospital for criminals in a riot-torn, near future Los Angeles.

We are hearing good things about this flick.

Ocean’s 8

Release Date: June 8, 2018
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson
Director: Drew Pearce

Just like Ocean’s 11, 12, and 13 films, comes Ocean’s 8 about eight female elite larcenists being led by Danny Ocean’s sister, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock).

Debbie promises her team $16.5 million each for their services in a jewelry heist. The target is a $150-million necklace that happens to be around the neck of a celebrity named Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway).

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Release Date: June 8, 2018
Director: Morgan Neville

It’s a beautiful day in the neighbourhood! All because we get a documentary that takes an intimate look at our favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers.

This documentary is already getting rave reviews for a candid look at a man who gave children so much hope and love through a television screen. The film takes you behind the zip-up cardigan and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius.

Incredibles 2

Release Date: June 15, 2018
Cast: Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, Sarah Vowell, Huckleberry “Huck” Milner, Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Bird, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Jonathan Banks, Sophia Bush, Isabella Rossellini
Director: Brad Bird

This could be considered one of the most anticipated films of 2018. What’s been great is that Disney/Pixar haven’t really given much away in the trailers.

Without spoiling the film, the story is about Bob Parr (Crag T. Nelson) who becomes a stay-at-home dad who struggles to keep the household together, especially when all three kids have superpowers. When a new villain emerges, the entire Parr family, along with Frozone, jump back into action alongside Helen to save the world.

Jurrasic World: Fallen Kingdom

The story takes place four years after the Jurassic World theme park was destroyed by dinosaurs. The island of Isla Nublar has been abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves. However, with the island’s dormant volcano shows signs of erupting, Owen (Chris Pratt) goes on a rescue mission to save his lead raptor Blue.

Sicario: Day of Selgado

Release Date: June 29, 2018
Cast: Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Matthew Modine, Catherine Keener, Isabela Moner

A highly anticipated sequel is already being touted as one of the best films of the year.

Federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) is ordered to start a war between the Mexican cartels and so he enlists the help of his old pal, Alejandro Gillick (Benicio Del Toro).

The early buzz on the film is that its action-packed with a riveting story.
