Opening

Friday 7

DARK PHOENIX After a rescue mission goes awry, the X-Men’s Jean Grey discovers long-buried secrets in her past and begins to transform into a mutant of incredible destructive power. This is likely the last film for these characters before they’re rebooted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

LATE NIGHT Emma Thompson is a longtime late-night talk show host who finds out her show is coming to an end, so she hires Mindy Kaling to help revive it.

THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 Animated sequel about what pets do when their owners are out.

Friday 14

MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL Thor and Valkyrie team up to fight an alien invasion type–thing in this sequel/reboot/side-thingy of the once-popular franchise. Sadly, Thor looks like normal Thor and not Thorbowksi.

SHAFT Another sequel reboot thingy. This one has Jessie T. Usher as Shaft Jr., who teams up with his dad, Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson) and granduncle Shaft (Richard Roundtree) to fight bad guys. The original Shaft was an excellent, gritty crime film that helped kickstart the blaxploitation genre. The 1990s sequel/reboot was, again, a good crime drama. This looks like a cheesy action film from the director of two terrible Fantastic Four movies (but not the worst).

Friday 21

ANNA Writer/director Luc Besson returns with this action film about a badass female Russian spy. Wait. Hmm, this sounds familiar. Atomic Blonde and Red Sparrow anyone? I believe there is even a scene of our heroine looking down while water pours over her head and she contemplates what a badass she is, much like in the aforementioned movies, along with several other female lead action films.

CHILD’S PLAY A remake of the classic horror series about a possessed children’s doll. This time the doll is voiced by Mark Hamill.
