The James Bond film Licence to Kill is released. Unknown to anyone at the time, its release would be followed by years of legal wrangling over the future of the popular film series. The next Bond film, GoldenEye, will not be released until 1995. While still considered parts of the same series, Licence to Kill is considered the last of the old-style Bond films as produced since 1962. Batman is released on June 23, and went on to become the biggest blockbuster of the year Grossing over $250 million at the box office.
