Welcome to the club! I just turned 50 last month.
As always, email me at with any film or theater
June is packed with movies you have to see at the local movie theater. Starting with “The Secret Life Of Pets 2” Usually I’m not excited about sequels but this one is different. Movies about dogs just make me happy. Who can resist the further adventures of Max the dog and his furry animal friends. Starring the voice talents of Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and Dana Carvey. Perfect for the whole family. It opens June 7th.
Also opening June 7th is “Dark Phoenix” starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence. The X Men face their most formidable and powerful foe when one of their own, Jean Grey, starts to spiral out of control.
Also opening June 7th is “Late Night” starring Emma Thompson and John Lithgow. A late night talk show host’s world is turned upside down when she hires her first female staff writer.
 If you’re an Emma Thompson fan you will be happy to know that a week later she has another movie coming out with “Men in Black: International”. It opens June 14th and also stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. Agent H and Agent M employ high tech weaponry to battle mischievious aliens on Earth. Samuel L Jackson fans will run to see “Shaft” also opening June 14th. It also stars Method Man. When his friend dies under mysterious circumstances, an FBI cyber security expert joins forces with his father – the legendary cop John Shaft – to scour the streets of Harlem to uncover the truth.
Opening June 21st is the long awaited
“Toy Story 4”. Starring the voice talents of
Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and, yes, Keanu Reeves. Woody, Buzz, and the rest
of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. Also opening June 21st is a remake of “Child’s Play” starring Aubrey Plaza and Mark Hammil.After moving to a new city, young Andy receives a special present from his mother, a seemingly innocent doll that becomes his friend.
Opening June 28th is “Yesterday”. Starring Himesh Patel and Kate McKinnon. Jack Malick is a struggling singer-songwriter in an English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading. After a freak bus accident, Jack wakes up to dicover that the Beatles never existed. Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, Jack becomes an overnight sensation with a little help from his agent.
There’s a lot of live theater to go to this month. One of my favorite events in New York is the annual “Broadway Bares” charity event. You are lucky it’s coming to San Francisco June 16th. One of the best comic writers, Bruce Vilanch is headlining with Jai Rodriguez and a lot of their friends. Go
to their website for more information. WWW. strips-4-comic-strips.html and my friend Lawrence Hellman is their publicist so you know it’s going to be good!
