1. The Nun (15)

When a young nun at a clois­tered abbey in Ro­ma­nia takes her own life, the Vat­i­can needs to in­ves­ti­gate. The or­der’s un­holy se­cret is un­cov­ered in the shape of a de­monic nun.

2. Christo­pher Robin (PG)

“It’s al­ways a sunny day when Christo­pher Robin comes to play,” coos the honey-lov­ing bear. But that sun­shine doesn’t al­ways pen­e­trate the rain clouds that linger over this film, which shame­lessly milks our af­fec­tion for the beloved char­ac­ters cre­ated by AA Milne and EH Shep­herd.

3. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (PG)

A decade af­ter Mamma Mia! the mu­si­cal broke box of­fice records, So­phie is now run­ning her mother’s tav­erna and ex­pect­ing her first baby, but im­pend­ing moth­er­hood causes her to look to the past, through flash­back.

4. Search­ing (12A)

Tap­ping into timely con­cerns about cy­ber­bul­ly­ing and so­cial me­dia peer pres­sure, Search­ing em­ploys the same stylis­tic con­ceit as 2014 su­per­nat­u­ral hor­ror Un­friended to test the bond be­tween a par­ent (John Cho) and 16-yearold child (Michelle La) in a 24-hour dig­i­tal age where ap­pear­ances can be de­cep­tive.

5. The Meg (12A)

Jon Turteltaub’s su­per­sized hor­ror thriller, based on Steve Al­ten’s best-sell­ing novel imag­ines the car­nage wrought by a 75ft long mega­lodon shark on an un­der­wa­ter re­search com­plex. En­er­getic lead­ing man Ja­son Statham glow­ers on cue as usual. 6. Blackkklans­man (15) Di­rec­tor Spike Lee’s con­science-prick­ing satire on cor­rup­tion and big­otry is based on a mem­oir by re­tired Colorado Springs of­fi­cer Ron Stall­worth and walks a tightrope be­tween fact and stranger-than-fic­tion.

7. In­cred­i­bles 2 (PG)

The long-awaited se­quel to Dis­ney Pixar’s mas­ter­piece falls tan­ta­lis­ingly short of the ge­nius of its pre­de­ces­sor but is big­ger in scope and am­bi­tion, boast­ing thrilling ac­tion set pieces and a fa­mil­iar menagerie of en­dear­ing char­ac­ters. Brad Bird’s se­quel is ef­fort­lessly en­ter­tain­ing.

8. The Equal­izer 2 (15)

The blood-spat­tered se­quel to the 2014 ac­tion thriller, which re­united di­rec­tor An­toine Fuqua with Train­ing Day lead­ing man Den­zel Wash­ing­ton, sees them re­turn to ac­tive duty for a re­venge mis­sion, which doles out rough jus­tice on home soil in breath­lessly staged and gra­tu­itously vi­o­lent fight se­quences.

9. Ant-man & the Wasp (12A) This sum­mer, char­ac­ters from across the Marvel Comics galaxy united for Avengers: In­fin­ity War, but one - wise­crack­ing cat bur­glar Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) - was ab­sent. Pey­ton Reed’s crowd-pleas­ing se­quel neatly ex­plains why. 10. Mis­sion Im­pos­si­ble - Fall­out (12A)

The sixth and ar­guably best in­stal­ment of the globe-trot­ting fran­chise, un­der writer-di­rec­tor Christo­pher Mcquar­rie, is a sus­pense­ful thriller. While other block­busters rely heav­ily on dig­i­tal trick­ery, Fall­out has its most ex­pen­sive com­mod­ity - lead­ing man.
