Recently we looked at the incredible array of potential blockbusters that are about to hit our movie theaters this summer. If only a few of them make the grade, we’ll still be in for one of the best years ever. While we sit here with 3D glasses poised and popcorn at the ready, let’s take a look at some of the releases from mid-summer onwards:

Minions (July 10)
