Terminator: Salvation (Director: McG, ETA: 5th June)
What is it? Post-apocalyptic struggle against the rise of The Machines.
Why we’re excited: It’s the Terminator sequel we’ve been craving for years - skipping the boring part where mankind is still alive trying to save the world, and simply getting on with the (hopefully exhilarating) death of everything. And as the man who saved the Bat, Christian Bale has somehow become the biggest action star on the planet – he simply doesn't appear in bad films.
Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen (Director: Michael Bay, ETA: 26th June)
What is it? Sequel to the occasionally kick-ass live action robot blockbuster.
Why we’re excited: Because the backstory’s out of the way, which means Bay can get on with nailing the sort of incredible action sequences and fight scenes which were in disappointingly short supply in the first film.
They Came From Upstairs (Director: John Schultz, ETA: July)
What is it? Kiddie horror in which a family vacation house is invaded by aliens.
Why we’re excited: Because it’s difficult to balance a family movie without it coming off either too lame or too scary. This looks just about right - Home Alone with cartoon aliens. And since Home Alone is a classic (yes it is) that’s fine by us.
