June brings one of Prime’s most popular (and grossest, funniest, and weirdly touching) back for a third season, but there’s a lot more going on than the ugly side of superheroics. Beyond the usual debut of some popular classic films, there’s an intriguing new British series about mysteries and social media and some series tailor made for summer viewing. But first, let’s look at a 36-year-old movie that’s suddenly relevant again.

Top Gun (June 1)

If you enjoyed Top Gun: Maverick, now’s probably a good time to revisit the original Top Gun, the Eighties landmark that promoted Tom Cruise from promising star to superstar. Its greatest contribution, however, might be Tony Scott’s visuals. A veteran of the British ad world, he turns the film into a long advertisement for American awesomeness.

Galaxy Quest (June 1)

One of the best Star Trek movies isn’t a Star Trek movie at all. This 1999 comedy stars Tim Allen as the egotistical star of a cult-favorite science fiction series who—alongside co-stars played by Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell, and Daryl Mitchell—gets recruited to find in an interstellar conflict. It’s a fun riff on Trek that also gets the sense of optimism and curiosity that makes the series so enduring.

The Brady Bunch Movie (June 1)

This clever take on the once-inescapable sitcom drops the upbeat Seventies family into the grungy 1990s. Robert Reed and Shelley Long both do uncanny impressions as the heads of the merged, oversized family and the Nineties fashions now make it a time capsule twice over.

The Boys (June 3)

This dark send-up of superheroes has so far done a remarkably good job of striking a balance. It simultaneously works as an unsparing satire of the superhero mythos and a gripping superhero story featuring memorable characters whose fates we actually care about. Season three sees Jensen Ackles (Supernatural) and Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) joining the cast.

No Time To Die (June 10)

Daniel Craig’s run as Agent 007 came to a memorable end last fall with this long delayed 25th installment in the James Bond series. Co-starring Lea Seydoux, it’s a stylish and surprisingly emotional end of an era.

The Summer I Turned Pretty (June 17)

This new miniseries adapts Jenny Han’s best selling coming-of-age novel about a girl named Belly (Lola Tung) who ends up in the middle of a love triangle with two brothers during summer vacation. If it catches on, expect a follow-up: the novel is the first in a trilogy.

The Lake (June 17)

Belly’s not the only one experiencing vacation drama on Prime this month. Jordan Gavaris stars in this new Canadian series about a man trying to reconnect with his teenage daughter at his family’s lakeside cottage only to butt heads with his stepsister (Julia Stiles).

Chloe (June 24)

When a social media star dies suddenly, Becky (The Crown’s Erin Doherty), one of her dedicated fans, discovers she might have a more direct connection to her idol than she thought. This six-part psychological drama already played to rave reviews on British television.

Sin Límites / Boundless (June 24)

Rodrigo Santoro (Lost) stars in this Spanish series inspired by the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan, who launched an attempt to circumnavigate the globe — a voyage that concluded 500 years ago without him. Simon West (Con Air) directs.

Shotgun Wedding (June 29)

Jennifer Lopez continues her attempt to keep the rom-com alive with her second entry in the genre this year after Marry Me. Lopez stars alongside Josh Duhamel as a couple whose destination wedding takes a tumultuous turn thanks to a hostage situation.
