The summer movie season is officially in full swing. What’s more, it doesn’t matter what you’re in the mood for. This June is bursting at the seams with blockbusters for every taste! If you haven’t caught a bad case of superhero fatigue, then right out of the gate, the new month kicks off with the follow-up to 2019’s Oscar-winning, animated Spider-Man adventure. That same day, horror fantastics can look forward to the latest adaptation from Stephen King’s legendary pantheon. If neither of those captures your film fancy, don’t fret. There is much to look forward to on the horizon, including the return of live-action Transformers, the unlikely debut of The Flash, a new Pixar flick, and a healthy handful of comedies.
