June is here at last, so Releases.com thought it would take a moment to tell you five films you should consider checking out this month.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
Release Date: June 12 2015 (US only)
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl may not be the best known movie, but that doesn't make it any less deserving of your attention. It follows the story of Greg and his co-worker Earl, two high school students who make movies and try to go unnoticed. All that changes though when Greg befriends Rachel, who has just been diagnosed with Leukaemia. It sounds like an interesting drama that will appeal to the outcast in all of us.
Release Date: June 5 2015 (UK, US)
Melissa McCarthy stars in this action comedy about the CIA's top analyst who seizes an opportunity to become a field agent and stop a global disaster. She may not be as suave as Jude Law, or as hard-as-nails as Jason Statham, but that doesn't mean she can't kick ass. It's also directed by Paul Feig who proved he can do comedy with Bridesmaids, however his last hit at action comedy, The Heat, was less than expected. So we hope he knocks this out of the park, especially with Ghostbusters being his next film.
Release Date: June 26 2015 (US only)
Seth McFarlane and Mark Wahlberg return for the continued adventures of the sapient, but crude, teddy bear Ted and his owner John. This time around sees Ted attempt to tie the knot, only to realise he can't because under US Law he's not a person, he's property. Cue hijinks. Given the popularity of Ted, we can expect this to be another hit comedy. That is, if McFarlane has learned from his mistakes in A Million Ways to Die in the West.
Release Date: June 19 2015 (US only)
Yes, it's a kid's movie, but it's also Pixar so let's not even pretend we aren't all going to go watch it. This movie sees us get to know the anthropomorphic emotions of Riley, a young girl whose life is uprooted when her family moves to San Francisco. It's an interesting idea, and it's Pixar, so we have faith that they'll once again demonstrate that just because a movie is made for kids, it doesn't have to be enjoyable only by kids. With the exception of Cars 2.
Release Date: June 11 2015 (UK), June 12 2015 (US)
Dinosaurs. Need we say more? Ok, fine we will. Chris Pratt riding a motorcyle with trained velociraptors at his sides. Gigantic sea creatures that make Shamu look like a bite-size snack. A genetically engineered T-rex with longer arms. In fairness, that last one sounds a little silly, but still, dinosaurs! If you do not want to watch this movie, then there honestly might be something wrong with the part of your brain that experiences fun.
