5 incredible sci-fi movies leaving HBO Max in June 2022

“Do you understand what I'm trying to tell you? There are no answers, only choices.”

5. High-Rise

Based on a novel by acclaimed writer J.G. Ballard, High-Rise takes place in a luxury apartment building that functions as a self-contained city. Things get decidedly more interesting as tensions erupt into all-out class warfare.

4. John Dies at the End

John Dies at the End is a bewildering spectacle, the definition of a love-it-or-hate-it movie. It backs up its incoherent psychic thriller plot with shock, gore, and brain-meltingly bizarre conceits entering and exiting at breakneck speed.

Magnet
3. The Mummy

The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, and The Scorpion King all leave this month. All three got mixed reviews, but they’re still wildly entertaining throwbacks to old-school adventure movies.

Universal
2. Real Steel

Robot boxing. If that’s somehow not convincing enough on its own, Real Steel turns its silly premise into an unexpectedly sincere story about an estranged father and son learning to trust each other (via robots).

Dreamworks
1. Solaris

Steven Soderbergh’s remake of the classic Solaris is incredible, challenging sci-fi. This story of an astronaut haunted by visions of the past on a strange space station is as gorgeous as it is engrossing.
