June is Pride Month, and this month begins with a new addition to the queer canon: Am I OK?, in which Dakota Johnson stars as a late-in-life lesbian. As a treat, June also ends with a movie starring Johnson — Daddio — and really, what more could the girls and gays ask for? Elsewhere, the summer movie season kicks into high gear with a mix of blockbuster sequels, including A Quiet Place: Day One and Inside Out 2, and action movies starring the likes of Jessica Alba, Martin Lawrence, and 94-year-old June Squibb. Plus, this month's slate offers new works from two-time Oscar winner Kevin Costner and five-time Oscar nominees Yorgos Lanthimos and Richard Linklater.

Below, A.frame has your guide to all the movies hitting the big screen and streaming platforms this June.

Am I OK?

Inspired by a "very awkward, honest, sometimes embarrassing" true story, this dramedy stars Dakota Johnson as 32-year-old Lucy, who realizes that the reason for all her failed relationships with men is that she's actually gay, leading her to navigate coming out and dating women in her 30s. As if that weren't enough, her best friend Jane (Sonoya Mizuno) is moving to London. Directed by wives Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne, Am I OK? also stars Kiersey Clemons, Jermaine Fowler, Molly Gordon and Sean Hayes.

Hit Man

Before Anyone But You and Top Gun: Maverick and Set It Up, the movie that first put Glen Powell on our radars was Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some!!. The two link up again for this genre-bending comedy about a strait-laced professor (Powell) who moonlights playing a hit man in undercover police stings. But when he falls for his newest client (Adria Arjona), things get very real. In addition to starring, Powell makes his screenwriting debut — he co-wrote the script with Linklater — and he also produces alongside the five-time Oscar-nominated filmmaker.

Inside Out 2

Headquarters is getting a bit crowded in the sequel to Inside Out, 2016's Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature Film. When newly-teenage Riley hits puberty, Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust are joined by new emotions: Anxiety (voiced by Maya Hawke), Envy (Ayo Edebiri), Embarrassment (Paul Walter Hauser), and Ennui (Adèle Exarchopoulos). And you thought you'd already felt all the feels.

The Watchers

Another generation of signature Shyamalan twists is upon us. After cutting her teeth writing and directing episodes of her father's series Servant and serving as the second unit director on his recent films, Ishana Night Shyamalan makes her feature directorial debut with a high-concept supernatural horror flick of her own. (M. Night Shyamalan is a producer on the movie.) The Watchers stars Dakota Fanning as Mina, an artist who finds herself stranded in the middle of the forest alongside a trio of strangers and the mysterious creatures who watch them each night.

At the spry age of 94, June Squibb is staking her claim to be the summer's hottest action star. In Thelma, the Oscar-nominated actress (Nebraska) stars as Thelma Post, a nonagenarian who falls victim to a phone scammer pretending to be her grandson and sets out on a mission to get her money back. And yes, Squibb did most of her own stunts. The heartwarming comedy is based on writer-director Josh Margolin's relationship with his own grandma and co-stars Fred Hechinger as Thelma's grandson and the late Richard Roundtree as her partner-in-crime.

The Bikeriders

A passion project more than a decade in the making for writer-director Jeff Nichols, The Bikeriders tracks the rise and fall of a Chicago-based motorcycle club, the Vandals, in the '60s. Inspired by a 1967 photo book from distinguished photographer Danny Lyon, the drama centers on the unlikely romance between wide-eyed Kathy (Jodie Comer) and rebellious biker Benny (Oscar nominee Austin Butler), with an ensemble cast that includes Oscar nominees Tom Hardy and Michael Shannon, Mike Faist, Boyd Holbrook, and Norman Reedus.

Fancy Dance

Following her Oscar-nominated turn in Killers of the Flower Moon, Lily Gladstone toplines this family drama as Jax, a Native hustler who — following her sister's unsolved disappearance — kidnaps her 13-year-old niece from the child's white grandparents and sets out for the state powwow in hopes of keeping what is left of their family intact. The film marks the narrative debut of writer-director Erica Tremblay, who quit her job and moved to a reservation in Canada, where she studied her Indigenous language, Cayuga, during the day and wrote Fancy Dance at night.

Janet Planet

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker makes the jump to the big screen with the newest drama from A24. Set in 1991, the film centers on 11-year-old Lacy (newcomer Zoe Ziegler) as she spends the summer in rural Western Massachusetts with her acupuncturist hippie mother, the titular Janet (Julianne Nicholson). As brought to the screen by Baker, Janet Planet is both a coming-of-age story and a love story between mother and daughter.

Kinds of Kindness

Before he'd even completed Poor Things, Yorgos Lanthimos shot another movie with Emma Stone, which arrives in theaters mere months after Poor Things took home four Oscars. Billed as a "triptych fable," Kinds of Kindness tells the stories of "a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader," with an ensemble cast comprising Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Hong Chau, Joe Alwyn, Mamoudou Athie, and Hunter Schafer. The film premiered during this year's Cannes Film Festival, where Plemons won Best Actor.

A Quiet Place: Day One

In the opening sequence of 2020's A Quiet Place Part II, audiences got a glimpse of the day that aliens arrived on earth. The majority of the sequel, however, was set — just like the original — one year after the monsters forced humanity into silence. After helming the first two films, John Krasinski passes the torch to writer-director Michael Sarnoski for Day One. Part prequel and part spinoff, the third installment in the Quiet Place cinematic universe introduces new characters played by Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o and Joseph Quinn — with Djimon Hounsou reprising his role from Part II — and reveals what actually happened on day one of the alien invasion.
