Despicable Me 3

“Now working with his secret agent wife Lucy Wilde (Kirsten Wiig) at the Anti-Villain League, former supervillain Gru (Steve Carell) is tasked with taking down a new enemy in the form of former child star Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker). Having grown up to become obsessed by the eccentric character he played in the 1980s, Bratt has hatched a scheme for world domination and will seemingly do anything to achieve his goal. With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, it once again falls to the unique talents of Gru and his Minions to step up to the plate and save the day.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming

“Tom Holland stars as the eponymous superhero in this Marvel Comics sequel to Captain America: Civil War that sees a young Peter Parker realise the full extent of his powers as Spider-Man.

“As a 15-year-old kid struggling with the everyday turmoil of being a teenager including school, homework and a crush on a girl who’s out of his league, Peter also has to deal with the fact that he is Spider-Man and has the ability to change the world. When he meets with Tony Stark, aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), a seasoned superhero who tries to pass on some words of wisdom, Peter is told that his priority should be working hard at school to get good grades, not donning his Spider-Man suit and fighting crime, but for Peter the urge to stop bad guys is just too overwhelming and he tries to find a way to do both.”

War for the Planet of the Apes

“Following on from the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, ape Caesar (Serkis) finds himself and his kind trapped in a war with the humans led by Colonel McCullogh (Woody Harrelson). Although adamant that apes are not savages, when a large number lose their lives at the hands of the humans, Caesar channels his dark side and vows to get revenge for every ape life lost.”

Baby Driver

“When young, talented getaway driver Baby (Ansel Elgort) meets the girl of his dreams, he decides he needs a change of lifestyle and vows to do one last job before making a clean start. He agrees to drive for Doc (Kevin Spacey), a career criminal, one last time but the job doesn’t go to plan and Baby finds his dreams of getting out moving further and further away.”

The Emoji Movie

“Set in Textopolis, the world inside your smartphone, emoji Gene (T. J. Miller) realises that he has many more emotions to express than just his preset ‘meh’. When set to work on human Alex (Jake T. Austin)’s phone, Gene panics and accidentally pulls an incorrect face on a message to Alex’s girlfriend. Cast out by his fellow emojis, Gene seeks the help of his good friend Hi-5 (James Corden) to make him normal.”

Cars 3

“With a new generation of highly-tuned, ultra-fast racers led by seemingly unbeatable rookie Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) dominating races, legendary speedster Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) suddenly finds himself being muscled out of the sport he loves. After then pushing himself to the limit and crashing out of a meet at the Los Angeles International Speedway, Lightning is forced to step away from competing in order to recover from his injuries.

“However, determined not to give up on his dreams, Lightning seeks help from enthusiastic race technician Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) in a bid to make it back to the top and defeat his flash new rivals on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage.”
