Stick with the superhero theme with DC’s SHAZAM!, the story of 14-year-old Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who’s been given the ability to transform into a superpowered adult (Zachary Levi). As Shazam, Billy has powers every kid would want: He can fly, punch through walls and shoot electricity out of his hands — but he also has an enemy: the villainous Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong).

Bring the tissues to this movie, which is based on an incredible true story.

During a 1973 bank heist crisis in Sweden, hostages developed a bond with their captors — supposedly, this event is how the term “Stockholm Syndrome” came to be. Noomi Rapace (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO) co-stars.
