It’s not just big blockbusters that will be appearing in UK cinemas this summer, there’s also some interesting smaller British films to look out for.
One such film is the new version of Swallows and Amazons.
Starring Rafe Spall, Andrew Scott, Kelly Macdonald, Jessica Hynes and Harry Enfield, Swallows and Amazons arrives in UK cinemas on August 19th.
The story follows four children dreaming of escape from the tedium of a summer holiday in the Lake District with their mother. When finally given permission to camp on their own on a remote island in the middle of a vast lake, they are overjoyed. But when they get there they discover they may not be alone…
As a desperate battle for ownership of the island ensues, the real dangers of an adult world on the brink of war encroach on their paradise in the form of a mysterious pair of Russian spies hot on the tail of the enigmatic Jim Turner. As the sleepy British summer is turned on its head, the children must learn skills of survival, responsibility, and the all-important value of friendship.
Here’s the new poster.
