Manhattan econ professor Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) knew that her guy Nick Young (Henry Golding) came from money…but when she accompanied him home to Singapore for the wedding of his best friend (Chris Pang), she wasn’t prepared for the eye-popping extent of the family wealth–or for the cold shoulder forthcoming from Nick’s domineering and disapproving mom (Michelle Yeoh). Hit rom-com take on the Kevin Kwan novel co-stars Awkwafina, Gemma Chan, Ken Jeong, Jimmy O. Yang.
Engaging ensemble farce tracks the summer spent by various Angelenos whose fates intersect courtesy of their pet pooches, from a neurotic newscaster (Nina Dobrev) forced into an on-air partnership with the ex-NFLer (Tone Bell) she’d disastrously interviewed, to a sunny barista (Vanessa Hudgens) helping a hapless dog rescuer (Jon Bass) keep his adoption business afloat. Eva Longoria, Rob Corddry, Finn Wolfhard, Adam Pally, Thomas Lennon, Tig Notaro, and Ron Cephas Jones co-star.
Detroit teen Eli Solinski (Myles Truitt) was rummaging for scrap when he came upon an unearthly rifle. The weapon would prove a difference-maker when his adoptive parolee big brother Jimmy (Jack Reynor) got in over his head with a local ganglord (James Franco)–but it may not be enough to get them through the determined pursuit of crooks, the feds…and the gun’s extraterrestrial owners. Riveting sci-fi actioner co-stars Dennis Quaid, Zoë Kravitz, Carrie Coon, Ian Matthews.

When Helen Lyle hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt a notorious housing project, she thinks she has a new twist for her thesis. Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site, Helen arrogantly assumes Candyman can’t really exist … until he appears, igniting a string of terrifying, grisly slayings.
