Stephen King’s 1986 novel – previously adapted into a TV miniseries starring the scenestealing Tim Curry – gets the big-screen treatment, with Mama director Andy Muschietti ably pulling the strings. Bill Skarsgård (Hemlock Grove) takes over from Curry as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, the malevolent, shape-shifting demon who drags little Georgie Denbrough into the sewers of Derry, Maine – an act which prompts guilt-ridden older brother Bill (Midnight Special’s Jaeden Lieberher) to go looking for answers.Stephen King’s 1986 novel – previously adapted into a TV miniseries starring the scenestealing Tim Curry – gets the big-screen treatment, with Mama director Andy Muschietti ably pulling the strings.

Blade Runner 2049 Denis Villeneuve directs this staggering follow-up to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi noir masterpiece. The setting is an eerie, futureworld LA 30 years after the events of the original, with Ryan Gosling following in the footsteps of Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard as Blade Runner K – tasked with hunting down and “retiring” rogue first-gen androids known as replicants. It’s a job he’s dutifully performed for years, but after a bruising encounter with Dave Bautista’s Sapper Morton and the mention of some unseen miracle, doubts and anxieties begin to take root.

 

Other films premiering in June include The Snowman, Mother and American Made.
