What? No Marvel nor DC superhero films opening this June? I feel a tiny bit faint, but not to worry, we have a ton of good and maybe some not so good reasons for you to go and enjoy your local movie theater – The Conjuring 2, The Fits, Independence Day: Resurgence, Free State of Jones and Finding Dory just to name a few. So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie 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.
