  • The 5 cinema releases that you need to watch in June

With the summer blockbuster season in full swing, the big budget flicks are coming thick and fast, so you'll be having plenty of trips to the cinema in June.

You'll be hoping that there are a couple of rainy days that will send your park bbq plans indoors, somewhere dark with a massive screen, playing great movies such as...

The Nice Guys - 3rd June

Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe team up to play a pair of private eyes in 1970 Los Angeles.

The duo investigate the apparent suicide of a fading porn star, only to get pulled into a much bigger conspiracy.

Crowe and Gosling's mismatched detectives provide plenty of humour, while we're given an exciting fresh take on the 'grizzled private eye' pulp movies from days gone by.

Independence Day: Resurgence - 24th June

We've waited twenty years for the follow-up to the amazing alien invasion blockbuster Independence Day, and now it's here and the aliens are bigger and meaner than before.

Earth has been preparing for two decades for another alien attack, and when they do come for revenge, they come back on an unimaginable scale as the population trembles under their unprecedented force.

Will Smith isn't returning due to salary disputes, but the returning Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman and Vivica A. Fox are joined by Liam Hemsworth in the hugely-anticipated and much-hyped sequel.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 - 3rd June 2016

Following on from 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which had many fans disappointed due to its quality but still earned a sequel due to it earning nearly half a billion dollars in the box office.

As expected, the turtles return as does Shredder, and we're introduced to more famous Turtles characters including Baxter Stockman, Krang and Bebop and Rocksteady.

With the quality raised from the first outing, the Michael Bay-produced Out of the Shadows is the perfect popcorn flick, sit down and enjoy the action while not having to think too hard.

The Secret Life Of Pets - 24th June 2016

Illumination Entertainment, the good people behind those annoyingly addictive Despicable Me films, brings us the tales of what happens to lazy housepets when their owner goes to work for the day.

A spoiled terrier's lap of luxury is turned upside-down when his owner brings home a new sloppy mongrel, but the pair come up against an army of abandoned pets led by an adorable white rabbit, as the two groups engage in an all-out war.

With a very impressive voice cast including Louis C.K., Kevin Hart and Steve Coogan, this could is set to be one of the most fun and exciting animations of the summer.

The Conjuring 2 - 17th June

The sequel to the terrifying 2013 tale of paranormal investigators raked in over $318 million worldwide, making it one of the highest-grossing horror films of all time.

Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren travel to the horrific location of... a council house in Enfield, North London.

With all of the key players from the original, including the stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, plus the screenwriters and director (and horror legend) James Wan, it is shaping up to capture that lightning in the bottle of a horror sequel that holds up to the original.
