Three family films to watch this month

With sky-high temperatures still making it hard to be outside with the little ones, a trip to the movies is the perfect solution to chill out and keep cool. Choose from a range of movie-going experiences from in-seat dining to 270-degree viewing extravaganzas for a great family day out.

The Big Trip
When a goofy stork accidentally delivers a baby panda to a bear called Mic-Mic, the somewhat grumpy animal sets off on a journey to return the cub to his rightful parents in China. Along the way he meets a motley crew of creatures - a chatty pelican, a poetic tiger and a scaredy-cat – all of whom he begrudgingly allows to join him, mainly because they have the ability to stop the baby crying. Expect chaos, carnage and comedy as the adventure gets underway forging unlikely friendships between the group.
Due out on Thursday September 12

Playmobil The Movie
Hot on the heels of the enormous box office success of both the Lego Movie films comes this animated adventure comedy inspired by another building toy. Marla, voiced by Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), is forced to leave behind her calm and ordered world in order to rescue her little brother Charlie, voiced by Gabriel Bateman (Child's Play), after he is sucked into the colourful Playmobil universe. Accompanied by the smooth-talking spy Rex Dasher, voiced by Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), she lets herself go and soon realises that maybe there is more to life than organisation and structure. Listen out for the melodic tones of American Idol superstar Adam Lambert as the evil Emperor Maximums.

A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon
It's four years since the mischievous sheep last appeared on the big screen and now he's back in an equally hilarious standalone sequel. When Shaun and the flock encounter a cute alien with extraordinary powers who has crash landed near their farm, they set about trying to get her home in order to prevent an alien invasion called Farmageddon. Filled with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments for all the family, big kids and little kids alike will enjoy the film as they fall in love with this claymation character all over again.
