Hosted by Rebel Wilson, this new Amazon Prime Video original puts 10 Aussie comedians on the chopping block as they attempt to keep a straight face. Whoever laughs loses in this battle.

7500

A terrorist thriller set in the high skies, 7500 stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as pilot Tobias Ellis. When his plane is hijacked mid-flight, Ellis is forced to take command of the situation, which we can only presume, involves some kind of Wesley Snipes high-kick action. If you weren’t scared to travel enough already, this one might tip you over the edge.

Release Date: 19 June

American Sniper

Clint Eastwood’s contentious patriotic war-movie is new on Amazon Prime Video in June. While the country itself battles a ferocious opponent, why not drum up a little nationalistic pride. Just watch out for that fake baby.

Release Date: 1 June

Gran Torino

Clint Eastwood’s second new appearance in June, Gran Torino is a perfect example of why you shouldn’t cross the elderly neighbour on your street. This is one badass geriatric and a solid performance from Eastwood, which includes a lot of snarling and borderline coherent responses.

Release Date: 1 June

In The Heart Of The Sea

Chris Hemsworth’s take on The Machinist, In the Heart of the Sea is a story of tremendous courage and resilience in the face of insurmountable tragedy. The film was based on a true story, which reportedly became the foundation for Herman Melville’s classic novel Moby Dick.

Release Date: 1 June

Sicario

Guns, drugs, Benicio del Toro; cartel movies don’t really get any better than this. The runaway hit was so good it even spawned a sequel, which is why you should definitely check this one out.

Release Date: 1 June

Rambo: Last Blood!

Yeah, sure, this one isn’t exactly Citizen Kane, but let’s not pretend you aren’t going to watch it anyway. Rambo: Last Blood! is two hours of lip-curling, mullet-inducing violence played out in a way that can only be described as deeply entertaining.

Dolor Y Gloria

Also known as Pain and Glory, this Spanish drama is actually incredible. The sombre performance from Antonio Banderas is truly impressive, and it’s great to see the return of prominent foreign cinema.

Release Date: 26 June

Best New Series on Amazon Prime Video

Chicago Fire S1-S4

Firefighters and paramedics work together to save lives on a regular basis while battling their own personal issues. They are also all ridiculously good looking, so that’s a plus.

Release Date: 1 June

Rosehaven S1-S3

An Aussie comedy that is painfully awkward in a uniquely uncomfortable way. Think The Inbetweeners for Australian millennials.

Release Date: 1 June

Criminal Minds S1-S13

A crack team of forensic profilers work to catch serial killers before they strike again. You’ve got your geeky tech girl, ripped SWAT team operative, awkward psychologist and Greg from Dharma & Greg for some reason. Amazingly, they always seem to get the job done in around an hour.

Release Date: 5 June
