The Marvels

In 2019, Carol Danvers (Academy Award® winner Brie Larson) became one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of her first solo film, CAPTAIN MARVEL. A key aspect of her appeal, in addition to her no-nonsense attitude and commitment to justice, is her immense, nearly incomparable power, but even the unbeatable need some help every once in a while.

Help is what the Kree warrior shall receive in THE MARVELS, in the form of Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), also known as Spectrum, and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), who likes to call herself Ms. Marvel after the trio find themselves mysteriously swapping places with each other whenever they use their powers. CANDYMAN director Nia DaCosta is helming the sequel – and 33rd MCU movie – which is poised to be a fun time for the whole family.

Trolls Band Together

Rarely has a popular line of toys managed to breed a big screen franchise as successful and beloved as that of the TROLLS movies. Perhaps the secret is not in the collectible figurines that inspired the films, but the all-star cast and, especially the music, which there will be plenty more of in the latest installment, TROLLS BAND TOGETHER.

After Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) finally become an official couple, she learns that her new beau was in her favorite boy band, BroZone, with his brothers, whom he is forced to reunite with after one of them, Floyd (Troye Sivan) is kidnapped by evil pop duo, Velvet (Amy Schumer) and Veneer (Andrew Rannells). The latest family-friendly adventure in this hit series from DreamWorks brings in even more newcomers to the voice cast, including Kid Cudi, Eric Andre, and Daveed Diggs.
