After front-loaded month, June comes to a relatively quiet close with only two releases this weekend. The highly anticipated movie Yesterday, from the dream team collaboration of director Danny Boyle and writer Richard Curtis, opens today. Also, the latest entry into James Wan‘s Conjuring universe finds June closing on a memorable note.
As a side note, due to their less than traditional Tuesday and Wednesday openings just after Canada Day weekend, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home and Elevation Pictures’s Midsommar are included in this week’s roundup of new movies in theaters. ~Paolo Maquiraya
