They do not call them “summer blockbusters” for nothing. June is the official start of summer, so when it’s hot outside, people move inside to the welcoming, cool interior of the Regal Camana Bay Stadium 6 to watch the big films being released this month.
The highly anticipated “Warcraft” is on its way, along with the “Independence Day” sequel, and “Finding Dory,” starring the irresistible Ellen DeGeneres as the main character. The ladies should also prepare themselves for a very ripped Alexander Skarsgard as Tarzan in “Legend of Tarzan” – the latest in a list of films covering the popular tale of a boy raised in the jungle.
