Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania didn’t exactly launch Phase 5 of the MCU into hyperspace, especially after abuse allegations were targeted toward the MCU’s new big bad, Jonathan Majors, but it’s still worth a watch for Marvel adherents.
In the film, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) continue their study of the Quantum Realm. But when they’re sucked in, along with Scott’s daughter, Cassie (Kathryn Newton), they encounter strange new creatures firsthand and come face-to-face with a terrifying new threat: Kang the Conqueror (Majors).
This new Disney+ original tells the story of Caleb Channing (Isaiah Russell-Bailey), who is growing up in 2257 on a lunar mining colony. After the death of his father (Entergalactic‘s Scott Mescudi), however, Caleb is set to be permanently relocated to an idyllic faraway planet.
Before he’s sent off, Caleb wants one more moon adventure to explore a mysterious crater. With his best friends, Dylan (Billy Barratt), Borney (Orson Hong) and Marcus (Thomas Boyce), and a new arrival from Earth, Addison (Mckenna Grace), they hijack a rover and go exploring.
Disney has told and retold J.M. Barrie’s classic tale of never-ending childhood, but never before with quite the same focus on the relationship between Peter Pan (Alexander Molony) and Wendy Darling (Ever Anderson).
It’s the same classic tale of a young girl and her brothers who are afraid to leave their childhood home, preferring instead to follow the ageless boy Peter Pan and his fairy friend Tinker Bell (Yara Shahidi) back to Neverland. There, they run afoul of the evil Captain Hook (Jude Law) and embark on a life-changing adventure.
Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film is perhaps his most polarizing. Set sometime after the Civil War, The Hateful Eight finds bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive captive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) riding a stagecoach across wintry Wyoming to the town of Red Rock, where Ruth will bring Domergue to justice. Shortly after adding another bounty hunter, Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a renegade claiming to be Red Rock’s new sheriff, to their party, a blizzard sets in, forcing them all to find refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery.
But something’s amiss at Minnie’s. Bob (Demian Bichir) claims to be taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother. He’s holed up with the hangman of Red Rock, Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and former Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). All eight travelers may not make it to Red Rock after all.

Directed by Ben Affleck and written by Alex Convery, Air stars Matt Damon as Sonny Vaccaro, an ambitious Nike salesman who believes Jordan will change basketball and should be the face of Nike. In 1984, Nike dominated the running market, but basketball was its weakness as rival companies Converse and Adidas had all the best NBA players wearing their shoes. Vaccaro convinces Nike co-founder Phil Knight (Affleck) to devote all its resources to signing Jordan to wear its shoes, a gamble that eventually led to a billion-dollar empire.
In addition to Damon and Affleck, Air also stars Viola Davis (The Suicide Squad) as Michael Jordan’s mother Deloris, Jason Bateman (Ozark) as Nike employee Rob Strasser; Marlon Wayans (The Curse of Bridge Hollow) as George Raveling, Jordan’s assistant coach on the 1984 U.S. Olympic team; Chris Messina (Gaslit) as Jordan’s agent, David Falk; Chris Tucker (Rush Hour) as Nike executive Howard White; Matthew Maher (Our Flag Means Death) as Nike designer Peter Moore; and Julius Tennon (How to Get Away with Murder) as Jordan’s father, James R. Jordan Sr.
This genre-bending rom-com stars Chris Evans and Ana de Armas as polar opposites who stumble into romance. Cole (Evans) is a salt-of-the-earth, cautious romantic who falls head over heels for the enigmatic Sadie (de Armas) after one good date.
But when she stops replying to his texts, Cole begins to fear he’s been ghosted. Turns out, she’s a secret agent, and before she can completely ghost Cole, they’re forced to team up on an international adventure to save the world.
