The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in June 2019

Netflix’s June lineup is all about old comforts and bold counterprogramming. As the summer movie season heats up and even the most casual theater-goers trek to the multiplex, Netflix is serving up one of its most robust slates in recent memory in order to convince people to stay home. With a little help from the likes of Steven Spielberg, Bob Fosse, and Miles Morales, it just might work.

On the blockbuster front, the streaming giant is getting into the spirit of the season by re-upping “The Dark Knight” and — more excitingly — offering the Oscar-minted “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” for the first time. But the real action can be found in less obvious places, as the company is complementing its well-chosen array of newish favorites with a diverse roster of Netflix Originals that includes a searing documentary about the democratic crisis in Brazil, a ruminative bit of sci-fi that delighted audiences at Sundance,

"This was us doing it for us." LevelFilm has debuted an official trailer for an indie film titled Ask for Jane, based on a true story about a group of women in the late 1960s who secretly offered safe abortions.

When a pregnant student at the University of Chicago attempts to take her own life, Rose and Janice find a doctor willing to perform the procedure in secret to save the woman's life." Together they decide to launch the Jane Collective: a secret organization to help other women obtain safe and illegal abortions.

The 'Magic Mike' Cast Can Still Work It Six Years Later!

It seems like just yesterday we were planning movie night with our girls to watch Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey take it all off in Magic Mike. However, six years later, we are still guilty of watching the guilty pleasure from time to time — and Tbh, we're still keeping our fingers cross for another sequel. Based on Channing's experiences as a stripper in the early '00s, it was no surprise the actor had all his sexy moves down pact. And his back-up dancers, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, Adam Rodriguez, and Kevin Nash were just as impressive. Along with the guys, Cody Horn and Olivia Munn also held their own in the midst of all that testosterone — making it the perfect chick flick in our opinions. (Photo Credit: Warner Bros., Giphy) It's also no surprise the film inspired its very own Las Vegas show, which was just extended.

Rachel Carey’s Film About Chicago’s Underground Abortion Network Goes into Production

Cait Johnston in “Ripped!”

Production has begun on a new film based on the true story of the underground abortion network known as The Jane Collective, a press release has announced. “Ask for Jane” is the brainchild of Cait Johnston, who is among the project’s producers (along with Caroline Hirsch of Caroline’s Comedy Club). Written and directed by first-time feature filmmaker Rachel Carey, the pic stars Johnson (“The Knick”), Sarah Ramos (“How to be Single,” “Parenthood”), Alison Wright (“The Americans”), Cody Horn (“Magic Mike,” “End of Watch”), Sarah Steele (“The To-Do List”), and Chloe Levine (“The Oa”).

The Jane Collective was founded by a group of young college women and based in Chicago, where it helped over 11,000 women get illegal abortions between 1969 and 1973. Though fictionalized, this account of the work of the women known as “The Janes” will stick close to the source. Writer and activist Judith Arcana — a former “Jane” herself— is acting as a Consulting Producer on the film, in which she will also have a cameo role.

“During a time when abortions were illegal, reproductive rights were being challenged, and birth control wasn’t easily accessible or morally accepted The Janes fought for what they believed in and acted out of bravery to create opportunity and freedom for women,” the film’s official press release states. “Five years before Roe v. Wade came into legislation The Janes were writing their own set of rules by standing up for and supporting women.”

“When I first heard the story of the ‘Janes’ and their covert abortion service, I was surprised I’d never heard of them before, and we hope our film will change that,” Carey said in a statement. We are excited to have a female-driven team bringing this important story to a wider audience.”

If “Ask for Jane” sounds familiar, you may be remembering an earlier iteration of the project. According to the release, “In 2016 Carey and Johnston’s limited series ‘Ask for Jane’ was one of three finalists chosen in the New York Television Festival Works 4 Progress Initiative with Participant Media.”

Rachel Carey’s Film About Chicago’s Underground Abortion Network Goes into Production was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

This Is How They Roll! Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard and Wife Hayley Step Out for Cmt Awards After Pregnancy Reveal
A country star in the making?

Shortly following the news that Florida Georgia Line star Tyler Hubbard and his wife Hayley are expecting their first child together, the duo stepped out Wednesday night at the Cmt Awards in Nashville, Tennessee.

“We’re so excited — it’s not a secret anymore so that feels good,” Tyler told Cmt’s Cody Horn of the pregnancy while walking the red carpet.

The mom-to-be kept her baby belly under wraps in a white belted jumpsuit complete with a plunging neckline. Tyler was all smiles in a zip-up jacket, white tee and dress pants.

DVD Review – Demonic (2015)

Demonic, 2015.

Directed by Will Canon.

Starring Maria Bello, Frank Grillo, Cody Horn, Dustin Milligan, Megan Park, Aaron Yoo and Alex Goode.

Synopsis:

A police officer and a psychologist investigate the mysterious deaths of a group of people performing a séance in an abandoned house.

When a horror movie comes with the tag of ‘[insert well-respected director’s name] Presents…’ you can pretty much be assured that the film will be nothing special, as we saw with Guillermo Del Toro and the very dull Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark or the bland Mama, Sam Raimi with the awful The Possession and even the late, great Wes Craven with the abomination that is Carnival of Souls. In this case it is James Wan (Saw/The Conjuring) whose name is attached as a producer and, quite typically, Demonic is a supernatural tale featuring a haunted house and found footage. Typically, because Demonic brings nothing new to

10 best films of Film4 FrightFest 2015

Luke Owen looks at this year’s FrightFest…

What a year this was. Every time FrightFest rolls around, the four madmen behind the festival promise the ‘best line-up ever’, and this year was no different. Each screen was packed out, there was plenty of surprises on offer and some great interviews with the likes of Barbara Crampton, Neil Marshall and Iain Softley.

As for the movies themselves, we had a great variety. From the terrifying (Demonic) to the utterly bizarre (Ahhhhh!) to the downright brilliant (Turbo Kid), there was something for everyone. There were arty films (Sun Choke), heart-breaking films (These Final Hours) and a movie where Santa Claus fights off zombie eleves (A Christmas Horror Story). What more could you ask for?

Well, here’s the 10 best films of the festival (in no order), according to Flickering Myth:

Film4 FrightFest 2015 Review – Demonic (2015)

Demonic, 2015

Written and directed by Will Cannon

Starring Maria Bello, Frank Grillo, Cody Horn, Dustin Milligan, Megan Park, Scott Mechlowicz, Aaron Yoo, Alex Goode

Synopsis:

A police officer and a psychologist investigate the deaths of five people who were killed while trying to summon ghosts.

Just as with The Diabolical, Demonic from producer James Wan and director Will Cannon is a movie that attempts to move the ghost story genre into a new direction. And Cannon does this in the most perfect of ways – he makes three movies that intertwine with one and other to create one of the best narratives to come from the subgenre in some time.

The first of these movies is your typical ‘five kids go to a haunted house tale’ which plays out better than you’d think. It’s helped by the fact Demonic has a wonderful cast of likeable characters – even if none

Demonic review [FrightFest 2015]: “Better than most Dtv films”

Demonic review: Better than most of of your Direct-To-Video horror films. Demonic review

Director: Will Canon

Cast: Dustin Milligan, Frank Grillo, Maria Bello, Scott Mechlowicz, Aaron Yoo, Cody Horn

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 83 minutes

Synopsis: A pair of detectives try to find a missing person after a group of college students go ghost hunting.

James Wan brought us Saw and Insidious. Now with his producer hat on he brings into life Demonic. Originally pegged as James Wan’s Demonic, somewhere along the line his name was dropped from the proceedings. The tale follows John (Dustin Milligan) the sole survivor to a vicious massacre in a house with a history.

The cast is interesting, featuring several old hats at this type of film, however anyone other than Milligan, Grillo or Bello is barely given the time of day. So much so that there are at least three, if not four, cast members that could easily be culled,

Frightfest 2015: ‘Demonic’ Review

Stars: Maria Bello, Frank Grillo, Cody Horn, Dustin Milligan, Megan Park, Scott Mechlowicz, Aaron Yoo, Alex Goode, Ashton Leigh, Terence Rosemore, Griff Furst, Jesse Steccato, Meyer DeLeeuw | Written by Max La Bella | Directed by Will Canon

James Wan, the man behind Saw, Dead Silence (a personal favourite), Insidious and The Conjuring, dons producer cap once more – following the success of Annabelle – for Demonic, the second feature from director Will Canon (Brotherhood); and a movie that seems to share more in common with the work of its producer that just having his name on the film…

Demonic follows Detective Mark Lewis and psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein as they question the lone survivor of a ghost-hunting excursion turned horrific massacre – where five college students were brutally murdered inside an abandoned home. The amateur paranormal activists were simply seeking proof of poltergeist phenomenon at the supposed haunted house. But what started out as

Magic Mike Xxl review

Channing Tatum returns to headline Magic Mike Xxl. It's better than you think...

The gradual reveal of Channing Tatum as a box office magnet and sorely underestimated movie star was staggered over the first half of 2012. The Vow and 21 Jump Street were both hits that showed off opposite sides of his range, but his two collaborations with Steven Soderbergh set him on his current path.

Long renowned as an actor's director, Soderbergh cast Tatum in a minor role in Haywire, which is how he came to be attached to Magic Mike, a semi-biographical project based on the actor's experiences as a stripper in Tampa, Florida. The latter was a sleeper hit that assured Tatum's status as an A-lister, but a sequel hardly felt inevitable.

However, in the same week as Terminator Genisys has shown just how low the bar is for sequels, Magic Mike Xxl turns out to be good

Second Opinion – Magic Mike Xxl (2015)

Magic Mike Xxl, 2015

Directed by Gregory Jacobs

Starring Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash, Gabriel Iglesias, Donald Glover, Elizabeth Banks, Jada Pinkett-Smith

Synopsis:

Three years after quitting the stripper life, ‘Magic’ Mike Lane runs into his old stripper buddies from the Xquisite show, who take him along on a road trip to a stripper convention as the last hurrah of the company.

Let me refresh your memory: the first Magic Mike film left us with a bittersweet taste in our mouths (…pun probably intended) as Mike (Channing Tatum) quit the stripper life to pursue more conventional business ventures and a relationship with The Kid (Alex Pettyfer)’s sister, Brooke (Cody Horn). There had been drugs, and bad blood, and some unnamed toxicity that even Mike couldn’t stand anymore, leading to his exit pretty much mid-show. It was a surprise and a total subversion of expectations

The Warner Bros. film finds four of the Kings of Tampa ready to retire. But before they can hang up their thongs for good, they ask Mike to join them for one last hurrah at a convention. The road trip to Myrtle Beach is full of surprises, ranging from humorous to heartfelt. Cody Horn, Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn and Alex Pettyfer's characters do not reprise their roles from Steven Soderbergh's film. Instead, director Gregory...

'Magic Mike' Honest Trailer Lays the Wood to '21 Hump Street'

Magic Mike Xxl hits theaters this evening beginning at 7Pm and while it isn't the drama the first one was, it is more the film I think many were hoping 2012's Magic Mike was going to be. So, in that respect the Screen Junkies crew are on point with their dissection of the stripper drama calling it "two unsexy hours" of watching the day-to-day routine of male strippers along with some stock market conversation mixed in with thong shopping. Though I do think they go a little hard on Cody Horn whom I thought was actually good in the first film. Oh well. readmore postid="181704" Watch the video below. yt id="SsDd_BVZqxQ" width="515"

Watch: Get Grindin' With 7 New Clips From ‘Magic Mike Xxl, Plus Channing Tatum Performs ‘Mike’ Scenes Written By Kids

“We gave them no direction, just the title,” Jimmy Fallon explains. “We asked them to write scenes based on what they think a movie called ‘Magic Mike’ would be about.” And with that “Magic Mike Xxl” star Channing Tatum is put through the dog and pony show of late night TV, but hey, at least the segment is amusing. So for “Magic Mike Xxl,” Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and Cody Horn are gone, but it’s interesting to see how much the sequel has diversified with their absence. Having much bigger roles in the follow-up film are Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias and the cast also includes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Donald Glover, Stephen "tWitch" Boss and Michael Strahan in not insignificant roles either (also new to the cast are Andie MacDowell and Elizabeth Banks).

Mike & The Boys Are Back To The Grind In Magic Mike Xxl Trailer

Move over Fifty Shades of Grey – the movie that’s going to get the most female tongues wagging this year is unquestionably Magic Mike Xxl, in which Channing Tatum returns to the role of an ace male stripper who thought he was out of the life for good, only to find himself drawn back in for more sweaty, sexy antics with such buff co-stars as Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, Matt Bomer and Kevin Nash.

A new trailer for the R-rated summer flick has splashed online, dripping with enough sexual innuendos and pent-up passion to make a Nsfw label somewhat appropriate. The actual plot of the sequel is irrelevant, as the trailer itself points out through a fourth-wall-breaking narration – Magic Mike Xxl promises some ripped, raunchy fellas doing what they do best, and that’s more than enough for the pic’s target audience.

There are some deviations from the first film’s formula,
