It's been exciting watching so many things reopening in recent weeks, including movie theaters in most areas. If you're ready to take the plunge and see a movie in a cinema, you can catch some of these premieres on the big screen. But with most children still waiting to get vaccinated, movie night at home may remain the safer choice for many in June. Movie studios continue to make that easy, by offering most of their big premieres streaming at home—plus there are some big series kicking off on Netflix, HBO, Hulu, and Disney.

Marvel is releasing its next much anticipated limited series this month on Disney+; we're crossing our fingers that Loki will be just as exciting as WandaVision was. Hamilton fans are excited to catch Lin-Manuel Miranda's In the Heights on HBO Max, and Netflix makes sure we remember dear old Dad in time for Father's Day with its new release Fatherhood.

If you missed Raya and the Last Dragon in theaters, it debuts in June as an included film on Disney+. And if you've been waiting patiently for the Peter Rabbit sequel, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway finally premieres this month as well—though in a last minute change, it will only be available in theaters.
