When you think of the summer movie season, you probably think of sci-fi extravaganzas and spandexed superheroes. June certainly has its share of popcorn blockbusters set for release, but it also boasts perhaps the most eclectic film slate of the year.

On the big screen, dinosaurs will once again rule the Earth in Jurassic World Dominion, a Space Ranger will go to infinity and beyond in Lightyear, and the King of Rock and Roll will shake his hips in Elvis. If that weren't enough, filmmaker David Cronenberg brings back body horror in his latest sci-fi thriller, Crimes of the Future, and Marcel the Shell With Shoes On is getting his own feature film. Which is to say, there truly is something for everyone in theaters this June.

The at-home offerings are just as promising, with festival favorites like Cha Cha Real Smooth and Good Luck To You, Leo Grande making their streaming debuts alongside the swoon-worthy romantic comedy Fire Island.

Scroll on for more on all of the movies hitting theaters and streaming services this June.
