6 Flicks Picks for June 2018 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, June 1, 2018
Welcome to another edition of 6 Flicks Picks, wherein I list all of the upcoming films that are scheduled to be released in the United States for the month which is about to begin and break down which ones I'll be watching in theaters, which ones I'll wait to rent at home, and which ones I'll be skipping out on entirely. After going through the list, I'll choose which six films stand out to me as the ones I want to see the most, even if there are more or less than six that interest me.

Note: The list below is based primarily off the expanded nationwide USA release dates on IMDB as well as some other random outlets if possible, so some information may be different. If I am missing some of the limited releases or the dates conflict in some fashion, please let me know in the comments below and any adjustments and corrections will be made!

Without further ado, another new month means another new set of films, so what's coming soon to theaters in June 2018?

Which films make the cut?

6. Ocean's 8 — I only saw the first of the original...I mean, of the remake...and I'm not into this all that much, but considering the other choices, I'd pick this over Action Point or Won't You Be My Neighbor, which were the only two other ones in the running.

5. Upgrade — The premise sounds interesting, at least.

4. Sicario: Day of the Soldado — I haven't seen the first, but it looked good, so maybe I'll watch that and then watch this.

3. Incredibles 2 — Admittedly, I didn't love the first one as much as most people, but I did like it, so there's no reason why I wouldn't see this.

2. Tag — This seems so stupid, but fun. Why not?

1. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom — I don't have the greatest feeling in the world about how this is going to pan out, but it's another film in this series, so of course I'm seeing it.
