June movies for each member of the family

Updated:

By: John Clyde, KSL

THE THEATER - May gave us some great flicks in the form of “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and “Maleficent,” but June seems to be offering even more.

The second month of the summer-movie season has a lot to offer everyone in your family.

Here are a few flicks headed to the big screen in June that different members of your family can look forward to.

For the kids: How To Train Your Dragon 2

The highly anticipated sequel to the 2010 hit “How to Train Your Dragon” is headed to theaters on June 14, and the early reviews are calling it a worthy successor to the original.

If “How to Train Your Dragon 2” is anything like the first film, it will have your kids frothing at the mouth to see it. Let's not be silly, however, truth is parents will likely enjoy it just as much.

“How to Train Your Dragon 2” is rated PG and will open nationwide on June 13.

For the teens: The Fault in Our Stars

Do you have an angsty teen that needs something to do this weekend? Send your teen to a movie.

The best-selling novel, “The Fault in Our Stars,” was a worldwide hit with teens, and the book is now a movie.

The teen drama stars Shailene Woodley as a young woman dealing with her cancer diagnosis who meets a cancer survivor, and the two start to fall in love.

The movie is likely too much for the little ones, but mom and dad still might find themselves wiping away a tear or two as they watch the movie with their teens.

“The Fault in Our Stars” is rated PG-13 and releases June 6.

For mom and dad: Edge of Tomorrow

Want humor, action and straight-up fun? Well, check out “Edge of Tomorrow.”

The sci-fi flick is exciting, witty and original and will have both mom and dad smiling. Tom Cruise is in a role that we've never seen him take on before. Trust me, you haven't seen him like this, and Emily Blunt is a force to be reckoned with.

“Edge of Tomorrow” is far too violent and content heavy for little ones, and it may be a movie parents want to see before showing their kids to make sure they're comfortable with it.

While “Edge of Tomorrow” isn't your classic “date” movie, it is a lot of fun and well worth your time.

“Edge of Tomorrow” is rated PG-13 and opens the same day as “The Fault in Our Stars,” June 6.

For the whole family: How to Train Your Dragon 2

Who are we kidding? We may say this is for the little ones, but we know it's going to be a fun movie that the whole family can get behind.

Drag your “I'm too cool for this" teen to the movie and even he or she will walk out of the theater with a smile on their face, they just won't let you see it.

What movies are you looking forward to in June?
