While it may seem that every year brings a glut of sequels and re-boots, this year's slate includes a notable number of beloved characters making highly anticipated returns.

It's been more than 50 years since Julie Andrews dazzled movie-goers as Mary Poppins - now Emily Blunt picks up the famous carpet bag in Mary Poppins Returns, due for release in December.

In the sequel, Jane and Michael Banks, now played by Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw, are grown up, while Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, Julie Walters and Colin Firth all join the cast.

Ass-kicking video game heroine Lara Croft will swing back into cinemas in March in the shape of Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander, who will take on the role that made Angelina Jolie a superstar.
