Love in the time of cancer?

From an alien action-adventure film, to a hip comedy to a tearful teen romance, the box office has something for everyone this June.

1) The Fault in Our Stars

Based on the best-selling book by John Green, The Fault in Our Stars is the story of two teens in love. Sound like every other teen romance? Think again because both Gus (Ansel Elgort, Divergent) and Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley, Divergent) have cancer. But bring your tissues as we don't expect to get through the movie without crying into our popcorn.

Emily Blunt also stars in this futuristic action thriller.

5) Transformers: Age of Extinction

Mark Wahlberg takes the reins in this continuation of the Transformers franchise. So is it a straight-up sequel? Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura had this to say to The Hollywood News, "It's definitely not a reboot. It's an interesting question about what you should call it. On a certain level it's a continuation of the previous stories, in the fact that it acknowledges what has transpired before it." Whatever you want to call it, we can't wait!

Transformers: Age of Extinction opens on June 27.
