Spending Summer in the Cinema

Spending Summer in the CinemaIt seems a strange idea to spend a glorious summer’s day inside a dark cinema, but if you’ve been brought up in the UK you know that anytime between late May and late September you will often be playing ‘weather roulette’.

So although your initial idea might be spending a day on the beach, often the reality is taking advantage of a brilliant Cineworld film selection and catching up on the year’s crop of blockbusters.

The summer months see the release of most of the big films of the year and it all started in 1975 with the release of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, which is widely regarded as the first film of Hollywood’s new blockbuster era and which consolidated the summer release trend.

This approach saw the major film studios and distributors plan their entire annual marketing strategy around a big release that hit the screens by July 4 and was aimed at being an ‘event’.

2014 is no different from any other year and there are plenty of titles aiming for ‘blockbuster’ status as the film industry releases their biggest and best offerings.

There really is something for everyone in this year’s crop of new films, so here are some to look out for:

For kids

Transformers: Age of Extinction

With a release date of 10th July at Cineworld Cinemas, the latest in the Transformers series land bang in the middle of summer. Director Michael Bay and a cast including Mark Wahlberg and Kelsey Grammer take the fourth outing in the series amp up the action and introduces the Dinobots led by Grimlock who transforms into an extraordinary mechanical Tyrannosaurus rex. An ideal choice for kids of all ages.

For romantics

Grace of Monaco

Early June sees Nicole Kidman starring as the actress who had to choose between Hollywood and becoming a real life princess. Tim Roth also stars as Prince Rainier III of Monaco and the story revolves around Kelly yearning to return to film making whilst her adopted home of Monaco faced political turmoil as France sought to regain control of it by force.

For action fans

Edge of Tomorrow

Tom Cruise is one of the very few true stars of the screen whose name can add millions to box office takings. He is legendary for doing many of his own stunts, and in this action packed sci-fi drama he pushes himself to the limits. Director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) has Cruise caught in a time loop battling savage alien invaders known as the Mimics in this adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s novel All You Need Is Kill.
