If you fancy a night out at the movies this month, here are some of the latest that are out, ranging from kids’ movies to superheroes.

Alice Through the Looking Glass

The sequel to Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass, stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice who returns to the magical world of Wonderland with a quest to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) before time runs out.

The star studded cast also includes Rhys Ifans, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway.

(Released in theaters May 27.)


Keanu is an action comedy about a kitten who must be rescued from a ruthless gangster by Rell and his cousin Clarence.  They inadvertently get caught up in a completely different world of violence and drugs.

The cast includes Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key.

(In theaters now.)

Ratchet & Clank

Ratchet & Clank is an animated sci-fi comedy about two unlikely heroes who must stop an evil alien from destroying each planet in the Solaria Galaxy. It becomes necessary for them to join forces with a heroic group called The Galactic Rangers.

This features a voice cast including James Arnold Taylor and David Kaye.

(In theaters now.)

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Neighbors is back, this time with a sorority causing the problems for Mac and his family instead of a fraternity. In fact, the last film’s antagonist, the president of the fraternity next door (played by Zac Efron), is enlisted by Mac (Seth Rogan) to help him battle the wild girls who have become the new neighbors.

In addition to Zac Efron and Seth Rogan, Chloë Grace Moretz joins the cast as one of the sorority sisters.

(In theaters now.)

X-Men: Apocalypse

Jumping ahead of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the new film will take place in the 1980’s. This means that the younger versions of the characters will be back again, this time dealing with the fact that their existence as mutants has been exposed to the world. Some people start to believe that the mutants are holy figures and, through their worshiping, end up reawakening an ancient Egyptian mutant called Apocalypse.

Appearing in the film this time around are Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Jubilee (Lana Condor), Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Angel (Ben Hardy) and Quicksilver (Evan Peters).

It’s still unclear as to whether Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) will be making an appearance in the film.
