MoviefiedNYC’s Opening in June

POW! BANG! ZOOM! It’s June and the blockbuster season is in full bloom. Many of them crept out in April (Oblivion) and May (Iron Man 3, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Fast and Furious 6, and After Earth), but we still have a lot of fun summer fodder ahead. Don’t forget to click on the movie title to view the trailers. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

June 7
The Internship 
Quidditch anyone? 

The Purge
In an alternate version of America, the government allows a twelve-hour period each year called The Purge in which any and all criminal activity, including murder, becomes legal. Don’t we call that Black Friday? 

Much Ado About Nothing (Limited) MoviefiedNYC Most Anticipated
Joss Whedon’s contemporary retelling of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, shot in black and white, in just twelve days. Working title: So Not The Avengers.


Tiger Eyes (Limited) 
This is the first major motion picture adaptation from a work of iconic author Judy Blume.

Wish You Were Here (Limited)
Another vacation gone awry movie. Ugh.

An apocalypse comedy written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. 

V/H/S/2
This is a fantastic foursome of horror shorts. It’s worth seeing just for the zombie sequence alone.

June 14
Man of Steel MoviefiedNYC Most Anticipated
A blockbuster Villain showdown! Looks like Michael Shannon might give Benedict Cumberbatch a run for his money as best villainous performance of this year’s summer blockbusters

Twenty Feet from Stardom (Limited)
The film traces the history of back-up singers from famous the Phil Spector–produced pop song, the British Explosion acts of the ’60s, and up to today’s music scene, complete with interviews from Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger and more.

Berberian Sound Studio (Limited)
A stylish, psychological thriller that looks and feels like it could have been made in the 70s.


The Bling Ring (Limited)
Two words: Sofia Coppola. I’m in!

In The Fog (Limited) 
Directed by Sergei Loznitsa (My Joy), an eerie, dreamlike World War II Russian drama.


June 21

Monsters University 3D
Prequel to Pixar’s animated movie Monsters Inc.


World War Z
An adaptation of Max Brooks’ best selling zombie book World War Z. I’m worried about this one.

Storm Surfers 3D
A new documentary featuring surfing legends Tom Carroll and Ross Clark-Jones that explores the seemingly insane, thrill-seeking, hobby of big-wave riding. Some of this footage is breathtaking.

Maniac MoviefiedNYC Recommended
A modern-day Jack the Ripper set in L.A. that is visually daring and psychologically complex. Shot almost entirely in first person, from the killer’s point of view, the audience sees what the killer (Elijah Wood) sees—in essence—we are the killer

 

June 28
The Heat
Wildly incompatible law officers (Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy) join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord – Wow! Where did this original idea come from?

White House Down
Roland Emmerich’s White House Down is an action movie that harkens back to the days of Die Hard.


I’m So Excited (Limited) MoviefiedNYC Most Anticipated
 I’m So Excited is set almost entirely on an airplane, described by director Pedro Almodovar as “a light, very light comedy.” 

Byzantium

Director Neil Jordan returns to the world of vampires he explored nearly twenty years in Interview with a Vampire; oddly with Byzantium it still feels like the 1990s. Byzantium features a fine performance by Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones).
