7 Movies to Watch This June
- Wonder Woman (June 1)
Finally, a woman front and center in a superhero movie. It's been forever since this happened so make sure you show up and support Diana Prince a.k.a. Princess Diana of Themyscira a.k.a. Wonder Woman. Played by the gorgeous Gal Gadot, Diana leaves everything and everyone she has ever known to fight the good fight beside mortals during World War I.
- The Mummy (June 7)
What's a man to do after accomplishing the impossible? Move on to another incredible feat, like Tom Cruise's supernatural mission to defeat an evil ancient princess awakened during present day.
- Despicable Me 3 (June 14)
Just when you thought Gru's family couldn't get any bigger, Gru discovers he has a twin brother. Gru and Dru would've gotten along well if Gru was still a villain, but now that he's a reformed criminal, will he stay good or will he be tempted to go back to the dark side?
- Can We Still Be Friends? (June 14)
Can exes eventually become friends? That is the million-peso question that this local rom-com tries to answer. It's a simple, relatable story brought to life by Always Be My Maybe's Gerald Anderson and Arci Munoz.
- Transformers: The Last Knight (June 21)
It's a whole new world in the Transformers universe: no more Sam Witwicky, no more Optimus Prime (or at least the Optimus Prime you knew and loved). But if you can count on one constant thing, it's that unlikely alliances end up saving the world. This time, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) teams up with Bumblebee (yay, he's back!), an English lord, and an Oxford professor. Brains and brawn FTW.
- Everything, Everything (June 21)
Boy moves in next door, girl meets boy through the window, boy has to get a full decontamination before he can visit girl, boy and girl fall head over heels. This is Nicola Yoon's story of a girl (Amandla Stenberg) who has lived all her life in a germ-free bubble and a boy (Nick Robinson) who pokes that bubble and turns her life upside down. Read up on the scenes from the book that we're excited to see onscreen!
- Rough Night (June 28)
It's girls' night out gone incredibly wrong in this comedy about five college best friends back together for what was supposed to be an epic yet harmless bachelorette weekend. But life—or should we say, accidental murder—happens when you least expect it. Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Kravitz, Ilana Glazer, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell—if you love any or all of these ladies, then this one’s definitely for you.

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
