The current release schedule for blockbusters coming to cinemas this summer

In case you didn't know, we're getting sequels to Saw, Jackass, The Purge, Don't Breathe and Resident Evil this summer.

It has been over a year since cinemas have been open properly and while we don't have an actual date for when they'll return to some level of normality just yet, the folks in Hollywood are still ploughing ahead with impending release dates.

These are some of the biggies you can (maybe!) expect to see in cinemas this summer and before we get into it, the release dates are based from the American schedule (they may arrive earlier or later over here, the further into the year we get) and the trailers accompanying them may also represent the original (i.e. 2020) release date.

Also, these dates are subject to constant change and update and could be moved again by the time we even finish writing this article in the first place.

So with that all out of the way, time to get excited!
