In 2010, Diary of a Wimpy Kid opened in cinemas. The live-action comedy – based on the 2007 children’s novel of the same name by Jeff Kinney – told the story of 12-year-old Greg Heffley and his trials and tribulations at school.   

Diary of a Wimpy Kid was a big success at the box office, and was quickly followed by another movie, which adapted the next book in the series. This in turn led to further sequels, as well as an animated reboot.

But how many Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies are there? For all the details and more, face front and pay attention.
