Here is a list of noteworthy movies heading to theaters and living rooms this summer — everything from blockbusters to small indies from the festival circuit. Release dates and platforms are subject to change.

LYNCH/OZ David Lynch fans well know his love for “The Wizard of Oz,” which seeps into his work in ways both overt (Sheryl Lee’s appearance as the Good Witch in “Wild at Heart”) and fascinatingly subtextual (the cast rearrangement in “Mulholland Drive”). Alexandre O. Philippe, a specialist in documentaries about movies (“78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene”), charts the connections. (June 2 in theaters)

Thompson. (June 2 in theaters)

TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS What is the appropriate taxonomy for giant robots?

Steven Caple Jr. (“Creed II”) directed. (June 9 in theaters)

ASTEROID CITY Wes Anderson ventures into the milieu of 1950s sci-fi: His latest film is set in a desert town during a convention of “junior stargazers and space cadets.” The cast is ridiculously starry and too long to list, but it includes Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Jeffrey Wright and — making his first appearance in the Anderson cosmos — Tom Hanks.

EXTRACTION 2 There was a time, in the 1980s or ’90s, when someone would have put a bit more effort into that title.

Sam Hargrave directed from a screenplay by Joe Russo. (June 16 on Netflix)

THE FLASH “I completely broke the universe,” Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) says in the trailer for the latest DC movie entry. Let’s not catastrophize. There are salient questions surrounding this film.

(June 21 on Max)

DESPERATE SOULS, DARK CITY AND THE LEGEND OF MIDNIGHT COWBOY This documentary from Nancy Buirski (“The Rape of Recy Taylor”) uses “Midnight Cowboy” as a jumping-off point to explore the atmosphere and cultural shifts that enabled the 1969 movie, the only X-rated film to win the Oscar for best picture, to be made.
