Movie Releases Winter School Holidays 2018
A trip to the movies during the school holidays is a great outing for families and with many cinemas now offering cheaper tickets it can be an outing you can afford to do once (or even twice) during the holidays.
The great news is there are so many awesome movies for kids out these school holidays that appeal to the big kids just as much as the little ones! We have made a complete guide of movie release dates over the school holidays, so you and your Brisbane Kids know what is coming up so you don’t miss a thing.
The Incredibles 2
Release Date: 14 June 2018
You can check out the official trailer for The Incredibles 2 below:
Thanks to Dinsey Pixar, The Incredibles are back in an action packed movie featuring everyone’s favourite family of supers. This time around it’s Mrs Incredible, better known as Elastagirl who is needed to save the world from evil, leaving Mr Incredible at home to care for Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack. Mr Incredible and the kids find the transition of Elastagirl going back to work difficult and it becomes even tougher by the fact that the family is still unsure of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. Then when a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again — which is easier said than done, even though they are all Incredible.

Incredibles 2 The Review
We were lucky to be invited to attend the preview screening of The Incredibles 2. For a movie with a lot of hype surrounding it, and especially since we have waited 14 years for the sequal, I was worried that it wouldn’t live up to expectations, or the original. I am excited to report that this was definitely not the case. Incredibles 2 is a movie that appeals to the whole family – the Incredibles, including little Jack-Jack who has a break out performance in this movie, and the new villains held everyone’s attention, and, perhaps the best bit, everyone was laughing out loud throughout the whole movie. Disney Pixar have done it again! We loved the Incredibles movie, and the entire family left the cinema hoping it would not be another 14 years until we get to see The Incredibles 3!
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Release Date: 22nd June 2018
You can check out the official trailer for Jurassic Park:Fallen Kingdom below:
The newest instalment of the epic Jurassic Park franchise is here! It’s been three years since the theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by the dinosaurs. The island is now only home to the surviving dinosaurs who now fend for themselves in the jungles.
However, when the island’s dormant volcano begins to erupt, Owen and Claire decide they must rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the island, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to an uncertain order not seen since prehistoric times.
Please note: This movie will contain frightening scenes and it is recommended that you check out the trailer and rating of this movie before you take your dinosaur-loving Brisbane Kids along to see this film.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is the latest Marvel Studio movie, a sequel to the popular Ant-Man based on the comic book hero. Ant-Man and the Wasp starts where Atman, the original movie, finished.

However after being able to access the quantum realm Pym and Hope realise that they may in fact be able to rescue their wife and mother, Janet. Realising they cannot save Janet nor defeat the ‘ghost’ without Ant-Man, they kidnap him and mend all broken bridges in order to save the loves of their lives.
Antman and the Wasp The Review
We were lucky enough to get a sneak peak of Ant-Man and the Wasp before it was released to the general public. The whole family loved it! The movie not only has a great storyline but also lots of action and laughs! The characters in the movie are perfect, Paul Rudd is a great superhero and the movie is both charming and funny- not something I thought I would say about a Marvel movie! Of course the action is also there with a great car chase through the famous streets of San Francisco!
I should add that we watched the movie in 3D which was awesome so if you have the option, book the 3D tickets!
Antman and the Wasp is rated PG and is a great holiday movie for families with tweens.
