Quiz: What year were these summer blockbusters first released?

Fancy your chances at tonight’s quiz?

CINEMAS WERE PERMITTED to re-open from the end of last month as Phase Three kicked in.

The country’s cinemas have re-opened in a staggered way since then with today seeing the re-opening of the popular Light House Cinema in Smithfield in Dublin. 

The summer months traditionally see the main Hollywood studios roll out their big-budget blockbusters.

While that’s not the case this year, how well do you remember when the summer blockbusters from years’ gone by were released? Let’s find out…
