MoviefiedNYC’s Opening This Weekend: June 13

Many of our friends have already been infected with summeritis—so that means it’s time for summer movies to begin. We saw a few blockbusters hit theaters in May (Godzilla, X-Men:Days of Future Past, and Maleficent), but June is coming in with a unique brew of its own to get us into theaters: cancer, Ping-Pong, dragons, Bigfoot, alien robot cars, and a musical—to name a few.

So, whether you choose to checkout that indie you’ve heard so much about or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

This time friends Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) find themselves undercover at a local college, to stop more drugs from being spread. Ice Cube also returns as the undercover unit’s captain, it’s the same case, do the same thing!

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (3D)

The second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless five years later. While Astrid (America Ferrera), Snotlout (Jonah Hill) and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. The animation looks absolutely incredible, especially the flight sequences
