So far 2015 has been a great year for movies. We kicked things off with the likes of American Sniper, Ex Machina, and Whiplash, while Kingsman: The Secret Service made it clear that February isn’t just reserved for terrible movies. Throw in blockbusers like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Furious 7, and Jurassic World, and the second half of this year is going to have to do an awful lot to keep up with movies like those listed above.

There’s a lot to choose from between July and December though, and it stands a good chance of eclipsing the first half of 2015 thanks to a cracking summer blockbuster season which includes both Terminator and Mission: Impossible, and the return of a big franchise in December. It’s going to be an exciting six months.

Here, we’ve managed to narrow down the great releases which are on their way once June is over down to just ten of the most interesting. Whether they are sequels, new franchises, or some smaller movies which you may have missed, these are all going to be essential viewing in what is yet another crowded year at the cinema…

The Martian

Prometheus split fans and critics straight down the middle, while The Counsellor and Exodus: Gods and Kings can be best described as “terrible”. Has Ridley Scott lost his touch? Based on the first trailer for The Martian, not yet, and this movie appears to be a return of form for the legendary filmmaker.

The movie has a terrific cast which includes Matt Damon, Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Sebastian Stan, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, but it’s Damon’s stranded scientist who must struggle to survive on Mars using only his intelligence and will who looks set to steal the show here.

After his past few efforts, it’s hard to know whether or not to be excited over a Ridley Scott movie (which feels like a terrible thing to say), but The Martian has a lot going for it. Hell, it will be worth watching just to see Damon “science the shit” out of his predicament…
