Nick Funnell selects the best movies to see this month

Robot & Frank (Un amigo para Frank) A gentle sci-fi comedy-drama starring Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) as a retired jewel thief whose son buys him a robot companion after he starts showing signs of senility. Initially suspicious of his new home help, Frank soon learns he can use him to restart his old career. Out now

Now You See Me (Ahora me ves...) Director Louis Leterrier conjures up an all-star cast—Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Mélanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine—for this thriller about a team of stage magicians who use their skills to rob corrupt businessmen and distribute the money to their audience. 7 June

Trance After the roaring success of last summer’s Olympic opening ceremony, Danny Boyle gets back to his day job with this stylish psychological thriller about an art auctioneer (James McAvoy) trying to remember where he hid a stolen Goya with the help of hypnotherapist Rosario Dawson. 14 June

Man of Steel (El hombre de acero) Under the watchful eye of producer Christopher Nolan, Zack Snyder (Watchmen) helms this second reboot of the Superman franchise (after 2006’s dodgy Superman Returns). Brit hunk Henry Cavill (The Cold Light of Day) is the new Kryptonian castaway while the very intimidating Michael Shannon plays General Zod. 21 June

Monsters University (Monstruos University) The long-awaited prequel to Pixar’s animation classic Monsters, Inc (2001) takes one-eyed Mike (Billy Crystal) and sasquatch-like Sulley (John Goodman) back to their first meeting as scaring majors in college.
