The Secret Life of Pets 2
It's time for the next installment of this adorable animated series, about a dog named Max (voiced by Patton Oswalt) and his furry pals who get into mischief once their humans leave them for the day. As usual, you'll recognize the voices of A-listers like Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, Harrison Ford, Eric Stonestreet, Jenny Slate and more.
Emma Thompson plays Katherine Newbury, a legendary late-night talk show host whose reign could soon be coming to an end. Until, that is, her life (and all-male writers' room) is thrown for a loop by a quirky and ambitious young writer named Molly (played by Mindy Kaling). This is the feel-good, girl-power comedy we all need right now.
Sophie Turner's tenure as Sansa Stark may have come to an end, but her role as the Marvel Universe's incumbent Jean Grey is just getting started. This time, an accident during a mission corrupts the hero with incredible, dark powers that leave the X-Men to decide whether their team member can ever return to the good side. Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Nicholas Hoult and Michael Fassbender are just some of the usual Marvel Suspects you'll see.

Samuel L. Jackson steps in once more as the latest iteration of Shaft, the smooth-talking private eye known to take down bad guys and finesse the ladies, all at the same time. Can ya dig it?
