The Hollywood summer movie season is dominated by two types of movie: action packed sequels (a new instalment in a story) and reboots (re imagined versions of previously told stories).
With Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 and Disney’s Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 kick-starting the blockbuster summer of 2017, here’s a sneak peak in to the other exciting movies in store for all of us in the summer period before the rains kick in! From talking cars to horrific mummies and ravaging apes and kickass superheroes, everyone has something to look forward to this June-July!
