Although Captain America: Civil War became 2016’s first film to gross a billion dollars, it seems unlikely to come close to the first Avengers film on the domestic front. In addition, X-Men: Apocalypse and Neighbors 2 are poised to fall well below their predecessors, and Alice Through the Looking Glass appears to be the first major flop of the summer, despite being the film to push Disney above $4 billion worldwide in 2016.
In terms of the types of films being released, this year’s June appears to be one of the more diverse in recent memory, with offerings that include a mockumentary, a historical drama, and a sequel to a 20-year-old blockbuster. During the same time frame last year, Jurassic World and Inside Out broke box office records to make June one of the highest grossing months of 2015. While titles such as Independence Day: Resurgence and Finding Dory stand a good chance of breaking out, this June will likely fall short of last year.
