Ever wondered how Toy Story’s square-jawed Space Ranger came to be? All your questions will be answered this summer as Buzz Lightyear blasts off for a hotly-awaited origin story from Pixar Animation Studios.

Unlike the character who hung out in Andy’s bedroom, this Buzz is no flightless plastic toy. In fact, Lightyear is based on the fictional human astronaut who inspired the action figure, voiced by the MCU’s Chris Evans. Book your tickets – to infinity and beyond!


Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) ordering his Minions in MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU

Minions: The Rise Of Gru

Directed by: Kyle Balda

Cast: Steve Carell, Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh, RZA, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Lucy Lawless

Minions: The Rise Of Gru UK release date: 1 July 2022

Respect to the little babbling yellow guys, but the best character in Illumination’s Minions saga was always their dastardly boss, Gru – and now he gets his own star vehicle.

Set after the events of the first film, twelve-year-old Gru is hoping for a shot at joining local gang the Vicious 6. Needless to say, it all goes horribly and hilariously wrong, with Steve Carrell once again supplying the voice behind the grammar-mangling supervillain – and a little help from guest stars Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren and Russell Brand.


Avatar: The Way of Water

Directed by: James Cameron

Cast: Kate Winslet, Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang

Avatar: The Way of Water UK release date: 16 December 2022

13 years after the original, Avatar: The Way Of Water is the long-awaited sequel to James Cameron's game-changing phenomenon.

Back in 2009, Avatar pushed the technological (and commercial) boundaries of cinema forever, and it's successor arrives in December with every level of similar ambition.

The Avatar: The Way Of Water teaser trailer hints at a return to the eye-popping world of Pandora, years following the first film's aftermath. Now parents, Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) are faced with new dangers that threaten their young family and the planet's hard-earned peace.
