The Festival – from the creators of The Inbetweeners comes a British comedy set, as you might have guessed, at a music festival. It stars Joe Thomas (Simon from Inbetweeners) and also features Noel Fielding, Nick Frost and Jermaine Clement. Expect crude humour, uncomfortable scenarios and a lot of mud. Out on Tuesday 14 August.
Christopher Robin – the second Christopher Robin-themed film in as many years stars Ewan McGregor as the title character. While Goodbye Christopher Robin focused on Winnie the Pooh author A.A. Milne and his relationship with son Christopher Robin, this film follows an adult Christopher, who encounters his childhood friend (and talking teddy) Winnie and rediscovers the joys of life. In cinemas Thursday 16 August.
The Equalizer 2 – Antoine Fuqua brings us a sequel to his 2014 movie starring Denzel Washington, as a vigilante serving hard justice for those who harm the helpless. This looks like more of the same in a Taken-esque sequel, with Pedro Pascal (Narcos, Game of Thrones) joining the cast. Released on Friday 17 August.
Incredibles 2 – the long, long awaited sequel to one of the most beloved animations of the 21st century sees the super-family spring back into action fourteen years since they first graced our screen.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout – the sixth entry in the Mission series is one of the best action films in years, and probably the film of the summer.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – Adam Sandler’s animated Dracula returns for a third instalment. This time he takes his family on holiday and finds himself making a romantic connection.
Ant-Man and the Wasp – the 20th entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe sees Ant-Man joined in action by, you guessed it, the Wasp. Following Infinity War is a pretty tough draw, but this should be a totally different affair, with a light-hearted tone and a fairly isolated story within the wider universe.
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies – animated comedy following the escapades of Teen Titans, z-list superheroes desperate to star in their own movie, who make their way to Hollywood in an attempt to fulfil their dreams.
Hearts Beat Loud – this Sundance-nominated film follows father and daughter (Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons), who form and unlikely songwriting partnership.
The Escape – stars Gemma Arterton and Dominic Cooper as young family-woman Tara decides to leave her boring life behind and buy a one-way ticket to Paris. But she soon realises it isn’t that simple.
The Meg – Jason Statham v The Megalodon (giant prehistoric shark), if there’s anything else I need to say then I’m not sure this is the film for you. It will be totally ridiculous, possibly stupid, but almost certainly a great time at the cinema.
The Darkest Minds – the latest product to try and surf the Stranger Things wave. This teen thriller follows Ruby, who makes a daring escape from the prison camp holding super-powered children like herself.
The Negotiator – Jon Hamm stars as a CIA operative in this thriller directed by successful TV director Brad Anderson. Also stars the excellent Rosamund Pike and is written by the same man who wrote the Bourne series and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
