The so-called "summer" movie season is well upon us - like a cultural global warming, the kind of blockbusters that used to signal the arrival of the northern summer are now being released well beforehand. The consequence of this is that release schedules around the world are heating up.

We've had the release of both Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and Ridley Scott's prequel-sequel Alien: Covenant, but on latest episode of The Playlist, Nick Bhasin and Fiona Williams take a look at what's coming down the pipe to see what's worth getting excited about.
