Digital Spy pulls together five must-watch movies - including a returning superhero icon and a Joss Whedon spin on Shakespeare - for June below...
Behind the Candelabra
Release date: June 7
Why you should see it: Steven Soderbergh's filmmaking swan song has already earned rave reviews (and ratings records) in America following its premiere on HBO. Cannes critics also gave the thumbs up to this biopic of the flamboyant pianist, with both Michael Douglas and Matt Damon said to be on top form. Soderbergh's screen career has been one of peaks and troughs, but it looks like he's bowing out on a spectacular high.
Man of Steel
Release date: June 14
Why you should see it: Seven years after the franchise stalled with Superman Returns, DC Comics' flagship superhero is back with Henry Cavill in the cape and tights. Man of Steel represents a completely fresh start, taking the comic book character from Krypton to Smallville and on to Metropolis. There's no Lex Luthor this time out, but opposition comes in the form of Michael Shannon's General Zod. Amy Adams, Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner are also among the cast heavyweights.
Much Ado About Nothing
Release date: June 14
Why you should see it: Before stepping into the editing room for The Avengers, Joss Whedon quickly shot a black-and-white, contemporary set adaptation of William Shakespeare's comedy. Whedonverse favourites including Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof and Nathan Fillion are among the cast for the low-budget movie, which filmed in just 12 days at Whedon's home.
World War Z
Release date: June 21
Why you should see it: Brad Pitt's zombie pandemic drama has been plagued by production woes with rumours of director clashes and a complete retooling of the final act, but hopes are still high for this one. Expectation is everything with this movie - go in after a strict adaptation of Max Brooks's politically-savvy novel and you'll be left wanting, but those after an intense summer blockbuster ride may find exactly what they're looking for.
This Is The End
Release date: June 28
Why you should see it: When the apocalypse interrupts James Franco's house party, a host of comedy superstars and their celeb friends are forced to fend for themselves as the end approaches. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg make their directorial debut with This Is The End, while the likes of Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Michael Cera, Emma Watson and Rihanna are among the packed ensemble. Expect impalings, aliens and jet-black humour aplenty.
