'Incredibles 2' (PG)

Everyone’s favourite superhero family are back in 'Incredibles 2'. Everyone has been talking about the second instalment of this family favourite and we think it lives up to the hype.

This time, the parenting roles are reversed, with Helen aka Elastigirl busy saving the world, while Bob aka Mr.Incredible stays at home with the kids: Dash, Violet and baby Jack-Jack. As you can imagine, this is a tough transition for the whole family, not helped by the fact that everyone is still unaware of little Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. If this doesn’t sound stressful enough, of course a new villain needs to get involved. The family need to don their Incredibles suits once again and work together to save the world.

'Incredibles 2' is available to see now in ODEON cinemas nationwide.

'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again' (PG)

Some would argue that 'Mamma Mia!' is the leading film in the feel-good musical category and we wholeheartedly agree. So, imagine our excitement when 'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again' was released – tears of joy may have been shed.

The second instalment of the film picks up the story with Sophie pregnant and unsure of how she’s going to cope. The story moves between past and present, as we follow Sophie on her new journey, while also seeing how Donna did it all those years ago. If your family love a toe-tapping, music filled good time – this is the film for you.

'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again' is available to see now in ODEON cinemas nationwide.

'Mission: Impossible – Fallout' (12A)

For a family who loves fast-paced action and adventure, 'Mission: Impossible – Fallout' is the perfect summer film choice.

The latest instalment in the infamous spy film series sees Tom Cruise take on the role of Ethan Hunt once again. Ethan and his elite team of IMF agents desperately race against time after a mission goes terribly wrong. Expect a tale full of enemies, betrayal and life-threatening stunts. The film is sleek, fast and best of all plenty of fun and if your little ones aren’t so little, this flick is a must-see.

'Mission: Impossible – Fallout' is available to see in ODEON cinemas from 25th July.

'Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation' (G)

If your family are fans of funny, colourful and goofy animation (and let’s face it – who isn’t) 'Hotel Transylvania 3' offers you exactly that. This film is guaranteed to bring the feel-good factor to your family’s cinema day out.

The monsters are back in the third instalment of the successful 'Hotel Transylvania' franchise and this time they are off on a cruise holiday. But of course, it’s not just any cruise – it’s one specifically designed for monsters (obviously). It’s all smooth sailing for Drac’s pack until Mavis realises Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship Ericka, who is hiding a dangerous secret that could destroy the whole of ‘monsterkind’.

'Hotel Transylvania 3' is available to see in ODEON cinemas from 27th July.
