Hobbs & Shaw

Lawman Luke Hobbs and outcast Deckard Shaw form an unlikely alliance when a cyber-genetically enhanced villain threatens the future of humanity.

Honeyland

The last female beehunter in Europe must save the bees and return the natural balance in Honeyland, when a family of nomadic beekeepers invade her land and threaten her livelihood. This film is an exploration of an observational Indigenous visual narrative that deeply impacts our behavior towards natural resources and the human condition.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood's Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.

The Lion King

The master storytellers at Disney breathe new life into one of their most beloved tales with this modern, visually dazzling spin on THE LION KING.

Led by Donald Glover as Simba and Beyoncé as Nala, the film features an all-star voice cast. Whether you're laughing at Timon and Pumbaa (Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen) or crying over Mufasa (who could only ever be voiced by James Earl Jones), you'll fall in love with your favorite characters all over again.

Featuring photorealistic, cutting-edge computer animation, director Jon Favreau retains the heart and drama of the story you love while crafting a heightened level of spectacle that will capture the imagination of a whole new generation.

The Farewell

A Chinese family discovers their grandmother has only a short while left to live and decide to keep her in the dark, scheduling a wedding to gather before she dies.

The Art Of Self-Defense

Dark, disturbing, and laugh-out-loud funny, director Riley Stern’s SXSW breakout has all the makings of an instant cult classic. With a perfect balance of off-kilter comedy and twisty thriller, THE ART OF SELF DEFENSE is what would happen if Charlie Kaufman wrote FIGHT CLUB. Or if Yorgos Lanthimos directed KARATE KID. Plus, dachshunds. 
 
Jesse Eisenberg (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) is perfectly cast as Casey Evans, a timid bookkeeper who joins a strip mall dojo after getting attacked on the street by a roving motorcycle gang. With guidance from his alpha-sensei (Alessandro Nivola, YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE) and hardcore brown belt Anna (Imogen Poots, GREEN ROOM), Casey enters an absurdly hyper-masculine world full of mind games, dark secrets, and heavy metal.
 
A biting satire on toxic masculinity, THE ART OF SELF DEFENSE takes a thoughtful look at traditional values of manhood – violence, emotional reticence, not petting your dog – and then proceeds to roundhouse kick them squarely in the face. 

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Everyone deserves a break once in a while. And after everything he’s been through in recent years, Peter Parker (Tom Holland, AVENGERS: ENDGAME) is ready to temporarily hang up his Spidey suit and just enjoy being a kid. Unfortunately for him, the forces of evil don’t take vacation.

Peter and some of his classmates embark on a school trip to Europe, a getaway that’s supposed to be all about sightseeing, goofing off with his friend Ned (Jacob Batalon, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING), and perhaps a bit of innocent flirting with MJ (Zendaya, SMALLFOOT). But when mysterious elemental creatures begin to wreak havoc across the continent, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson, CAPTAIN MARVEL) calls on Peter to suit up.

The team that brought you HOMECOMING reunites for SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME, infusing it with the same sense of adventure, humor, and heart as that film, while also introducing an air of intrigue with Spider-Man’s enigmatic new ally, Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal, VELVET BUZZSAW). It’s a bad trip for Peter that promises to be a fun ride for all of us.

Midsommar

Young couple Dani and Christian have been going through a rough patch, so a vacation to a tiny sun-dappled Swedish village seems like just what they need to heal. They arrive during a nine-day pagan festival filled with flower garlands, kinship, and twirling 'round the maypole. But on closer look (and under the influence of mysterious powders) they find a bizarre undercurrent of cultish violence beneath the smiling facade. 

Director Ari Aster’s follow-up to last year’s nightmarish HEREDITARY brightens the exteriors but retains an uneasy menace in what he calls a “Scandinavian folk horror.” With all manner of grief, confusion, and ritualistic sadism unfolding in the radiant light of day, MIDSOMMAR will forever change the way you look at the idyllic countryside. Remember to breathe. 

Wild Rose

She’s just been released from prison, and already Scottish rogue Rose-Lynn (Jessie Buckley, BEAST) is pursuing her dreams of country music stardom. Fame and fortune don’t come easy, though, and getting from Glasgow to Nashville is no easy task – especially for an ex-con working as a housekeeper with two young children to care for.

None of that will get Rose-Lynn down, though. With counsel from her employer and her mother, possessed of her own broken dreams, she sets her mind to making it as the next Dolly Parton – without abandoning the responsibilities of being an adult.

With a star-making performance from Buckley and a soundtrack of country favorites and originals, WILD ROSE is a funny, emotional, and ultimately uplifting tale that gets to the truth of how stars are born. It’s not through romance; not through sudden explosions of celebrity; but through hard work, determination, and compromise.

Men in Black: International

The Men In Black have always protected Earth from the scum of the universe – but until now, audiences have only seen them protect the United States. Enter Agents H and M, two hotshot members of the MIB's London branch. Together, they're tasked with doing some of that world-saving business – only this time, the threat comes from a mole inside the MIB itself.

THOR: RAGNAROK stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson reunite for the latest MEN IN BLACK adventure. With snappy suits, high-tech equipment, and no shortage of attitude, they'll take on threats human and alien alike. And they'll make it look good.

Coming from THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS director F. Gary Gray, MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL takes the sci-fi comedy franchise around the world in pursuit of aliens, action, and laughs. With a supporting cast that includes Emma Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, Liam Neeson, Kumail Nanjiani, and countless extraterrestrials, MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL is a fresh, funny take on an old favorite.

Dark Phoenix

It’s ten years after the events of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and the X-Men are heroes in the public eye. But when a solar flare strikes during a daring space mission, young mutant Jean Grey’s abilities begin to change – and outgrow her control. With the Phoenix rising inside Jean, the X-Men’s greatest challenge may yet come from within.

One of the Marvel universe's greatest storylines comes to new life in DARK PHOENIX. Starring GAME OF THRONES’ Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, along with the current X-Men roster of Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Storm (Alexandra Shipp), DARK PHOENIX will prove a dangerous and emotional struggle both for the X-Men and for Jean herself.

Longtime X-MEN writer/producer Simon Kinberg takes the director’s chair for this newest, darkest entry into the franchise. Bringing a host of complex relationships to the fore, DARK PHOENIX represents a fight for Jean’s soul – and for the future of mutantkind.

Rocketman

Described by director Dexter Fletcher (BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY) as a “musical fantasy,” ROCKETMAN is a dream-like interpretation of Elton John’s incredible rise to success. Starring Taron Egerton (KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE) as Elton and Jamie Bell (BILLY ELLIOT) as his lyricist and collaborator Bernie Taupin, it tells story of an artistic friendship amidst the insanity of public life and self-destruction. 

No typical biopic, this film eschews the history books and favors playful invention over fact-checking. But instead of glorifying Elton, it shows all the ugliness and vulnerability of a real human being shoved into the limelight. Featuring colorful interpretations of his ‘70s hits (and outfits), ROCKETMAN is a freewheeling, joyful look at a difficult period in a rock legend’s brilliant career.
