Summer Films: What To Watch

With such great cinema listings on offer it’s difficult to determine exactly which films guarantee a good-ol’ movie experience and which will drag on. Today on, we’re looking to five summer films that guarantee fast-paced action, popcorn-chucking shockers and unforgettable humour. 


A guaranteed must-watch for the Baywatch fan, this motion picture is derived from the 80s hit TV-show and centres around a group of crime-solving lifeguards that are fairly easy on the eyes. Starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra, this film guarantees a good laugh and will surely kick you into workout mode. 

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

The fifth installment in the series sees the much-loved trio of characters (played by Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom) return to the big screen for another nautical adventure, which this time focuses on the search for the mythical trident of Poseidon.

Alien: Covenant

If science fiction movies complete with deadly monsters are your guilty pleasure, then Alien: Covenant is going to give you all the fast-paced thrills you pay for. The crew of a colony ship, starring Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterson, discovers an uncharted paradise but it’s inhabited by a threat beyond their comprehension. 


Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman, the iconic female comic book super hero who came from a legendary tribe of the Amazons. The film follows Diana as she leaves her normal life to fight a war for her homeland.



Directed by Christopher Nolan, this film is based around a group of allied soldiers from Britain during the Second World War. Canada and France are surrounded by a German army and their evacuation (known as the Dunkirk evacuation). The film stars Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and even teen pop-star Harry Styles.
