10 of the Best New Sci-Fi Movies in June

Watch: All-new Indiana Jones, Wes Anderson sci-fi and The Flash – these are the most anticipated new sci-fi movies in June 2023

The legend returns, Wes Anderson’s first major release in 9 years (and it’s sci-fi) and how The Flash finally “outpaced” Superman. It’s the best of new science fiction movies: from Harrison Ford as Indy, a new Spider-Verse adventure, Asia’s thrilling dystopian Hong Kong tsunami hit and Robbie Amell as a “replicant” in cinemas and on Netflix –  these are some of the most anticipated new sci-fi movies in June 2023. 

Awesome New Sci-Fi Movies in June 2023

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Cinema, 2 June 2023

Miles Morales Spider-Man is back in the awesome Spider-Verse art style and adjusting to life as Spidey on Earth-1610. But a year and a bit after the collider from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse exploded, a new anomaly and threat known as the Spot appears and Miles pursues, going through an inter-dimensional portal (again!). He runs into Spider-Gwen (Stacey), haunted by her own past demons, from Earth-65 and together head to Earth-928, where numerous Spider-people co-op together. Problem is these anomalies are threatening everything – and the only way to stop it all is to reverse the “original anomaly”. Who- and whatever that might be in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

Cinema & SVOD, 2 June 2023

A bit of a confusing release schedule (apologies!) but Simulant becomes available in most territories in June. And looks good as Robbie Amell – hopefully raising cash for Code 8 Part 2 – goes up against Sam Worthington. A mourning widow creates an android replica of her husband (a SIM), whose lovesick-and-lost nature unlocks unprecedented human behaviour, sparking government agents to investigate in Simulant.

Asteroid City

Cinema, 23 June 2023

With a few select early 16 June screenings, Asteroid City is available everywhere by 23 June. An absolute treat for Wes Anderson fans, he’s back with a delightful tale of 1955 parents and students gathering in the fictional American dessert town of Asteroid City for a stargazer’s convention when things get a little strange. But, meaningless universe or not, it’s the characters and styling that steal your heart in Asteroid City.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny

Cinema, 30 June 2023

Oh yes, it’s Indy time! 30 years after the events of the Last Crusade (12 after Crystal Skull) the war is long over, the Nazis are supposedly long-gone and Indy is approaching retirement. It’s 1969, though, and he’s a little worried about the European experts the US is flying in to help them beat the Soviet Union to the moon. Especially when he recognises ex-Nazi Jürgen Voller now working at NASA. With no one wanting to listen to an old man’s crazy ramblings, though, it might be time for Indy to do what he does best in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.
