Obviously happening because Paddington was a sleeper hit, and Tigger is horrifying. Old toy AND no teeth? Rocket-grade nightmare fuel.
The Darkest Minds
A BLATANT X-Men knock-off. How is Marvel not suing?
The Spy Who Dumped Me
Not quite as good as Spy or as fizzy as Ocean’s 8, but a decent buddy comedy featuring the passable Mila Kunis and the spectacular Kate McKinnon.
Spike Lee’s latest joint is an adaptation of Ron Stallworth’s bonkers memoir about joining the KKK as a black police officer in the 1970s. Cannot WAIT for this one.
With the exception of Beethoven, movies about dogs are bad which is weird because dogs are great.

Crazy Rich Asians
Kevin Kwan’s popular novel becomes a movie, the first Asian-fronted film since Joy Luck Club 25 years ago (EMBARRASSING FOR EVERYONE ESPECIALLY THOSE WITH GREEN LIGHT POWER). Equal parts rom-com and family drama, this is the rich people soap opera we need in our lives.

The Happytime Murders
Transparent Meet the Feebles knock-off but that’s okay as 1) I love Meet the Feebles and 2) this looks good.
John Cho fronts a thriller framed through the lens of a laptop. We’re going to see more and more of this device, and Searching is, apparently, setting a really high bar for this style of movie.
Fun Fact: Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder have worked together every decade for the last 30 years.
Looks forgettable, but always here for Zoe Kravitz.
