With summer blockbuster season just around the corner, we take a look at three of the hottest upcoming action films, due to hit the big screen this year. So if you like your film going experience to take place at the edge of your seat, check out our top picks below.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

The seventh film in the X-Men series, Days of Future Past acts as a sequel to both 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand and 2011’s X-Men: First Class, as well as a follow-up to 2013’s spin-off, The Wolverine. Due to be released in May of this year, it is Rotten Tomatoes’ most anticipated film of summer 2014. In the latest story in the saga, we see the X-Men from the original trilogy joining forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in order to fight a war for the survival of the species across two time periods.  An epic battle ensues in which the mutants must try to change the past, in order to save the future. This film features an ensemble cast of X-Men favourites including Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Storm (Halle Berry), Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence). Check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer with Cineworld.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Due for release in May, this is the second film in the series reboot starring James Garfield in the titular role, and Emma Stone as his leading lady. In this instalment of the Marvel series, Peter Parker has two new nemeses to contend with, in the form of Electro (played by Jamie Foxx), an Oscorp engineer who following an accident in work, gains the power to control electricity, and Russian mobster turned supervillain, the Rhino (Paul Giamatti). The film sees Parker continue to struggle with balancing his life as a high school student with his responsibilities as Spider-Man. With the help of his friend Harry Osborn, he starts to realise that the new threats he faces all seem to have one thing in common: Oscorp.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

It just wouldn’t be summer blockbuster season, without a new Transformers film. However, there’s a major change to the line-up with this one after Shia LaBeouf announced that after three films, he was leaving the franchise. With the departure of LaBeouf comes the end of the Sam Witwicky story arc and the introduction of a new leading man, Mark Wahlberg. The film follows struggling inventor Cade Yeager (Wahlberg) who purchases a broken down truck, only to find out that it is really an injured autobot. Die hard fans will be pleased with the return of their favourite transformers, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Ratchet, and to see the introduction of the Dinobots. Due for release in June 2014, Transformers will no doubt deliver on action and in typical Michael Bay fashion, will feature fast cars, epic battle sequences and a lot of explosions.

So there are three brilliant action films to look out for later in year. We can’t wait!
