So the summer season is now well and truly over, and we're slowly but surely moving into awards movie territory. But for those of you concerned that the next few months will be filled with nothing but weepie Oscar-magnets, fear not! We've still got at least – AT LEAST! – ten movies filled with laughs and explosions and stuff that we all love the summer blockbuster season for. HOORAY!

What's It About? It's The Hunger Games… In Space. It's Starship Troopers… For Kids. It's a group of talented teenagers who have been placed into a space marine programme to protect the Earth from an impending alien invasion. Heavy sci-fi subtext with lots of SFX for the eyes, too!

What's It About? A feature length version of the misbehaving old man from the previous Jackass movies, this seems like something that should have been stretching something to thin, but the trailer was absolutely HILARIOUS, and it's been just long enough since the last Jackass movie for us to miss it.


Release Date: October 30th
Who's Involved? Alan Taylor (Game Of Thrones) directs Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Christopher Eccleston.
What's It About? Thor and his girlfriend finally get reunited after the events of The Avengers, and he brings he back to his world of Asgard.
