TMW's 2016 Movie Preview - Part Six: June

The sixth part of our look ahead to the movies coming our way in 2016.



Words by Eric Hillis (@hilliseric)

All dates are based on the current UK release calendar and are subject to change.


The Nice Guys
**TMW Must See** After a diversion into the Marvel universe with the unfairly derided Iron Man 3, Shane Black returns to his comfort zone of the buddy crime movie. Set in the '70s, The Nice Guys teams Russell Crowe's hired muscle with Ryan Gosling's shoddy private eye to track down a missing girl.



Warcraft
Put away the cheetos and Mountain Dew and leave your parents' basement for the cinema - Warcraft is finally hitting the big screen. Early trailers have prompted a general reaction of "Too much CG!" for a movie that, perhaps fittingly, looks an awful lot like a video game.



Now You See Me 2
Whether it was down to box office trickery or not, the first Now You See Me made a surprisingly hefty wedge of cash, and so we get a followup. Joining the cast is Daniel Radcliffe, who should know a thing or two about magic at this point.




The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga's ghosthunters are off to London in this sequel. Based on the 'real life' Enfield haunting, which was recently covered in a UK TV show. Director James Wan returns hot off the success of Furious 7.

Independence Day: Resurgence
It seems everything old is new again, and along with the return of Star Trek and Star Wars, the '90s sci-fi blockbuster gets a belated sequel in which a second wave of aliens arrive 20 years after the first invasion. Most of the original cast return alongside Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe and Charlotte Gainsbourg.



Me Before You
Jojo Moyes' weepy novel gets a screen adaptation. Emilia Clarke is the young woman who takes a job looking after accident victim Sam Claflin in what sounds like next year's The Fault In Our Stars.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Despite a critical walloping, the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles proved a box office smash, and so we see a return for Megan Fox and her halfshell clad buddies. This one sees the introduction of villains Bebop and Rocksteady.



The Boss
Melissa McCarthy is a company head newly released from prison for insider trading. Attempting to reinvent herself, she finds America isn't quite ready to forgive her. Kristen Bell plays McCarthy's suffering personal assistant.



The Secret Life of Pets
Ever wondered what your pets do while you're away from home. That's the premise of this animated comedy featuring the voices of Louis CK, Kevin Hart and Lake Bell.
