Jurassic World Dominion《侏罗纪世界3》


Jurassic World Dominion is the final film in the second trilogy of dino-movies – and it's the first one which really deserves to be called "Jurassic World" rather than "Jurassic Park". Yes, prehistoric monsters are out and about in the wild this time around, rather than being stuck in a theme park. "The world I get excited about is the one where a dinosaur might run out in front of your car on a foggy backroad, or invade your campground looking for food," the film's director, Colin Trevorrow, told fan site Jurassic Outpost. "A world where dinosaur interaction is unlikely but possible – the same way we watch out for bears or sharks." What's even more exciting is that the (human) stars from the first Jurassic film have reunited, so Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum will be teaching Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard how to dodge a hungry T-Rex.



Released internationally on 10 June

Official Competition《主竞赛》


Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas have been two of Spanish cinema's most glamorous superstars for decades, and yet have only rarely acted on screen together. Now, once again, that wrong has been righted by Official Competition, a delicious movie-business satire written and directed by Gastón Duprat and Mariano Cohn. Cruz is a pretentious art-house director who is adapting a Nobel-prizewinning novel. Banderas is a vapid Hollywood action hero who is hired to star in it, and Oscar Martínez joins them as a snooty theatre veteran who grudgingly agrees to play Banderas's brother. The two men aren't keen on each other, and they're even less keen on the demanding director whose eccentric rehearsal methods border on torture.



Released on 1 June in France, 9 June in Singapore, 17 June in the US and 30 June in Germany

Brian And Charles《布赖恩和查尔斯》


Not a typical science-fiction movie, Brian and Charles is a low-budget, low-key British comedy starring and co-written by David Earl, a regular in Ricky Gervais's sitcoms. Earl plays Brian, a grumpy inventor who lives in a cottage in a remote corner of rural Wales. When loneliness gets the better of him, he decides to build a robot out of washing machine parts and an old mannequin head, and, three days later, he has an artificially-intelligent, slightly annoying new friend (Chris Hayward, also the co-writer) that he names Charles. Brian and Charles is "this year's sweetest film by a country mile," says Cory Woodroof at Nashville Scene. "It's like an Edgar Wright/Mighty Boosh project thrown into a cotton-candy machine, but also one of the most surprising films about being a parent, even when your son is a 7ft-tall robot who loves cabbages."



Released on 17 June in the US and Canada

After four Toy Story films, everyone's favourite space ranger action figure, Buzz Lightyear, gets to leave Woody and friends behind, and go off on an adventure on his own. Or so you might assume. In fact, the latest Pixar cartoon isn't about the toy. The idea is that the Buzz in Toy Story was a piece of spin-off merchandising, and that this new film is the Hollywood blockbuster which inspired that merchandising in the first place – hence it's Chris Evans rather than Tim Allen who provides Buzz's voice. Confused? To make matters even more complicated, the film-makers have tried to give it the rough-and-ready look of the 1970s and 1980s sci-fi movies which were made before the advent of CGI. The film's director, Angus MacLane told James White at Empire: "For me, it was important to have that solid feel of the models and motion-control spaceships of movies of that era."
