Taking a family cinema trip is a pretty failsafe way of keeping the DCs entertained. Here are the new films Mumsnetters are most looking forward to over the summer months.

What's it about? Another Marvel superhero is brought to life by Disney, and he's on a mission to protect the secret technology that allows him to shrink to the size of an ant. Paul Rudd stars.


Inside Out

What's it about? Pixar's huge new animation movie takes on the challenge of covering a pre-teen's coming of age from the inner-workings of her mind, with emotions voiced by the likes of Amy Poehler and Phyllis Smith. 

MNers say: "Funny and bright and sparky but also sad, bittersweet, poignant... It had those hidden depths all the best Pixar films have." Join the discussion


What's it about? If you've ever wondered what it would be like if the planet was attacked by giant video game characters, Pixels will answer that question for you. Adam Sandler and Michelle Monaghan star alongside Game Of Thrones' Peter Dinklage.


Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

What's it about? Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt in the fifth instalment of the Mission Impossible series. This time, he's fighting a shady organisation intent on bringing down the IMF. Simon Pegg and Alec Baldwin also make appearances.


Fantastic Four

What's it about? The latest instalment of the Fantastic Four franchise sees the team battling to save the Earth from a deadly enemy. Miles Teller, best known for his role in last year's acclaimed Whiplash, stars alongside Jamie Bell and Kate Mara. 



What's it about? The hilarious prequel to the Despicable Me films sees the Minions running riot in London as they assist a pre-Gru villainess (voiced by Sandra Bullock).

MNers say: "Even Mark Kermode rates the Minion movie highly - must be good!" Join the discussion


Jurassic World

What's it about? 22 years after the disaster at the original Jurassic Park, a replacement has been built, and Chris Pratt's at the helm. Expect plenty of prehistoric hi-jinks.

MNers say: "I can't bring myself to say anything negative about this as I'm still bathed in its warm, dinosaur-y glow and humming the theme tune." Join the discussion
