WINNIE-THE-POOH is one of my mum’s favourites, so when I told her about the release of this next one she was ecstatic.

Christopher Robin (PG) is showing at the Picture House Cinema from Friday, August 17. Now a family man living in London, Christopher Robin receives a surprise visit from his old childhood pal, Winnie-the-Pooh.

With Christopher’s help, Pooh embarks on a journey to find his friends, Tigger, Eeyore, Owl, Piglet, Rabbit, Kanga and Roo.

Once reunited, the lovable bear and the gang travel to the big city to help Christopher rediscover the joy of life.

Not so long ago was the release of the biographical drama Goodbye Christopher Robin about the creator of Winne-the-Pooh, AA Milne; but I can assure you this is something completely different.

From the trailer this looks like a similar style to Paddington 2, which did fantastically in the cinemas last year, so fingers crossed this one is just as great.

Alpha (12a) is due to hit the big screens on August 24. While on his first hunt with his tribe’s most elite group, a young man is injured and left for dead. Awakening to find himself broken and alone, he must learn to survive and navigate the harsh and unforgiving wilderness.

Reluctantly taming a lone wolf abandoned by its pack, he learns to rely on it, and they become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds to find their way home before the deadly winter arrives.

If you love the survival type films this one could be for you, and if you love a story that explores the bonds between humans and animals then this would definitely be for you.

If you and the family have been enjoying the top-quality animations we have had so far this summer then you’re in luck because we still have a few more due out before the summer’s over!

The next one is a little less known but nevertheless it still looks fun. Luis and The Aliens (U) is due for release on August 24.

The film follows an 11-year-old boy who embarks on a wild quest to help three tiny extraterrestrials return to their huge mother ship after they crash their UFO into his house. Although we have many high-spirited films to offer, you may prefer a film that explores a deeper subject matter or that takes you away on an emotional rollercoaster.

The Children Act (12a), released on August 24, may just be one of those films.

In the midst of a marital crisis, a High Court judge (Emma Thompson) must decide if she should order a lifesaving blood transfusion for a teen with cancer despite his family’s refusal to accept medical treatment for religious reasons. Her judgement is put to the test with far-reaching consequences, as she must ultimately decide whether he lives or dies.
