The must-see blockbusters that will sort out your summer

screen-poster

Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Solo: A Star Wars Story… hard to believe there is still more to come this summer. Here are six more action-packed biggies that are due to smash their way into cinemas over the next few months...

Skyscraper

Die Hard meets White House Down meets The Towering Inferno. There's a lot of blockbuster classics swimming in the DNA of this hi-octane Dwayne Johnson actioner, with the muscle-strewn man-mountain headlining as a security guard with a physical impairment who is faced with saving the inhabitants of Hong Kong's tallest skyscraper after it's infiltrated by terrorists. With a guest cast including Scream's Neve Campbell and Game of Thrones' Noah Taylor, this looks set to be another action-stuffed classic for Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

So far, all the talk about the sixth movie in the now 22-year-old Mission: Impossible movie series has been about star Tom Cruise's crunched ankle [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNT-tPrz4OM] and guest star Henry Cavill's face fur, but that's just skimming the surface of one of the summer's most burningly-anticipated action flicks. There are so many more reasons to get fired up, including the welcome return of Sean Harris as whispering hitman Solomon Lane (the movie is being touted as a sequel to 2015's Rogue Nation), as well as Simon Pegg as dweeby tech whizz Benji, Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa and franchise mainstay Ving Rhames (the only actor apart from Cruise to have appeared in all six movies) as Luther Stickell. With locales ranging from India to New Zealand to Norway to, oh yes, the UK, Mission: Impossible - Fallout looks set to be the most globe-stretching movie to date for the IMF gang.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

After the tragic, heart-ripping drama of Avengers: Infinity War, it's good to have a bit of a palette-cleanser from Marvel. Promising the same heady mix of comedy, romance and action as the first instalment, Ant-Man and the Wasp promotes Evangeline Lilly to co-lead as she partners up with Scott Lang to become, well, Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Ant-Man was, of course, one of the few MCU heavyweights absent from Infinity War, and the new film finds Lang under house arrest after the events of 2016's Captain America: Civil War.

Out 3rd August

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Don't go thinking that this animated movie about the pre-teen members of the DC universe is just for kids. Remember how sharp, irreverent and knee-snappingly hilarious The Lego Movie was? That seems to be the comedy template for this fizzed-up big screen version of the insanely popular Cartoon Network series, Teen Titans Go!.

And it looks like Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is trying to out-meta Deadpool, as it concerns the team's attempts to make their own big-screen spin-off, after learning that every other character in the DC universe is getting their own movie. In a neat bit of voice casting, Nicolas Cage, 20 years on from his near brush with the character in the aborted Superman Lives film, has been cast as Krypton's favourite son (Cage is such a fan of the character, fact fans, that he named his son Kal-El).

Out 3rd August

The Equalizer 2

Given that The Equalizer the TV series clocked up an amazing 88 episodes during its 1980s run, there's clearly plenty more stories to tell in this pumped-up reboot of the cult Edward Woodward-starrer.

2014's The Equalizer cast Denzel Washington as the former black ops agent Robert McCall who finds himself forced out of retirement when a young girl, under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, asks for his help. Four years on, McCall is back for The Equalizer 2, this time going on a rampage of revenge after learning that one of his oldest friends has been murdered. Despite Denzel Washington being just two years off the US pension age, we still wouldn't mess with him.

Out 17th August

The Predator

In 1987, Shane Black starred alongside Arnie as Rick Hawkins, one of the first victims of the dreadlocked space-bruiser in John McTiernan's action classic, Predator. Thirty-one years later, Shane Black is back, though this time behind the camera, for the latest sequel in the box office-busting sci-fi franchise.

The Predator tells the story of a young boy who accidentally triggers the Predators to return to Earth. But these aren't the Predators you remember, oh no - these guys have genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. With no Arnold Schwarzenegger to stop them this time, it's up to the boy's father (who happens to be a former Marine and Special Forces commando) to take on this new generation of alien thugs.
