James Fenton

Summer is very much upon us and while the weather is fairly decent here in Ireland right now, there’s always a chance it can take a turn for the worse at any given moment. 

What better way to spend an overcast day then checking out one of the many blockbusters to hit Irish cinemas over the summer. 

We’ve compiled a list of movies which will have crowds flocking to the big screen over the next few months as well as the dates they will be released. 

Which one are you most looking forward too? Let us know in the comments. 

June 6 – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

In the latest instalment of the dino franchise, Owen Grady and Claire Dearing return to the island of Isla Nublar to save the creatures from certain extinction. Expect the usual mix of nail-biting suspense, dodgy human characters and wry one-liners delivered with ease by Pratt. 

Plus, Goldblum returns to the series for the first time since 1997’s The Lost World, which makes it a must-see.
