Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Peyton Reed
  • Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, Tip "T.I." Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Michael Douglas, Randall Park, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne

Sequel to Marvel's 2015 superhero flick Ant-Man, which sees the eponymous shrinking hero (Rudd) joining forces with the Wasp (Lilly) to rescue her long-lost mother (Pfeiffer) from a quantum realm. Silly yet also subtle, the film brims with chemistry from its strong cast.

Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin
  • 2018

  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc Forster
  • Cast: Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings

Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a workaholic who neglects his family, until he re-encounters his childhood toys. Whimsical and unoriginal back-to-childhood tale, not saved by McGregor’s dexterity or Cummings’s lovely voice work as Pooh.

The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jennifer Yuh Nelson
  • Cast: Mandy Moore, Amandla Stenberg, Gwendoline Christie

When a pandemic wipes out 98% of the world’s children, the remainder develop X-Men-esque powers and—guess what—are distrusted by parents and authorities. Numbingly derivative and eminently forgettable YA action flick which entirely fails to grapple with the potential horror; supposedly a franchise-opener, but don’t be too hopeful for a sequel.

The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Antoine Fuqua
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal, Bill Pullman

Robert McCall (Washington) works as a Lyft driver in Boston but when his black-ops handler (Leo) is murdered, he sets out to find her killer. Uninspired sequel which hypocritically preaches noble virtue while dispensing cheap thrills and physical mutilation.

  • Cast: Joe Thomas, Hammed Animashaun, Claudia O'Doherty

Nick (Thomas) is a lovesick no-hoper whose mate Shane (Animashaun) drags him to a festival after Nick’s girlfriend (Tointon) has broken up with him. Thomas is game for seemingly any level of humiliation and while it doesn’t always hit its targets, it’s exuberant fun.

  • Directed by: Genndy Tartakovsky
  • Cast: Adam Sandler, Kathryn Hahn, Andy Samberg

Third instalment of the Hotel Transylvania franchise, which sees daughter Mavis (Gomez) take on the role of overbearing parent when her father Dracula (Sandler) falls for the ship's captain Ericka (Hahn) whilst on a monsters-only cruise. A funny and good-humoured flick, with plenty of goofy gags and musical numbers that'll please the whole family.

  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

  • 2018

  • Directed by: Christoph Lauenstein, Wolfgang Lauenstein
  • Cast: Callum Maloney, Dermot Magennis, Ian Coppinger

Luis (Maloney) is an 11-year-old boy obsessed with aliens, who gets visited by some shape-changing extra-terrestrial blobs. It has an attractive sheen and likeable characters, but the tone is uncertain and it’s too derivative and unsure of itself to win many admirers.

  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

  • Directed by: Jon Turteltaub
  • Cast: Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Cliff Curtis

Jonas (Statham) is a diver who’s brought to an underwater research facility to rescue people from a sinister threat—the titular giant shark. It’s a $150m B-movie; the creature itself is no masterpiece, and the plot is ridiculous, but Statham carries off the outlandish premise with a confident performance in a role he was born to play.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is back for the franchise's sixth entry, and teams up with old IMF colleagues Luther (Rhames), Benji (Pegg), fellow spy Ilsa (Ferguson) and CIA enforcer August Walker (Cavill) to track down some stolen plutonium. Despite a few cliches, Cruise goes above and beyond with his stunt work in this first-class summer blockbuster that's guaranteed to leave you on the edge of your seat.

  • Cast: John Cho, Debra Messing, Michelle La

David (Cho) is mourning the loss of his wife, but when his daughter (La) disappears, he has to look for her with resourceful cop Rosemary (Messing). A childish whodunnit with a ridiculously contrived story, concluding with a convoluted solution that’s farcical to anyone with a basic knowledge of police work.

The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me
  • 2018

  • Directed by: Susanna Fogel
  • Cast: Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Sam Heughan

Audrey (Kunis) finds that her ex-boyfriend is a spy, and she and her best friend Morgan (McKinnon) are forced into completing his mission. Hardly the most original plot, but it’s briskly paced, the script is sharp and often surreal, and McKinnon in particular is on fire, comedically speaking, with ostensible leading lady Kunis a fine and very game foil.

  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Aaron Horvath, Peter Rida Michail
  • Cast: Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Will Arnett

Disgruntled that so many big players in the DC Universe have their own movie but they themselves don’t, the Teen Titans pressure hotshot director Jade Wilson (Bell) to make one. Inventive and very funny animated superhero comedy which is a treat for kids and adults alike.
