  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREVIEW: In addition to Kong, a strange movie called Raw comes out this weekend. It appears to be some kind of cannibal type of film? Also, yet another Scientology movie is out, called "My Scientology Movie".
  • THOR: RAGNAROK IMAGES: Taiki Waititi's upcoming movie in the Thor franchise, finally released some set photos and they did not disappoint. From a short-haired Thor, to the Goddess of Death, to Jeff Goldblum, this may be the best one yet.

  • JURASSIC WORLD 2: Our first image has emerged to give us a look at Jurassic World 2. It doesn't tell us a lot, but will the premise be that the knowledge of how to clone dinosaurs goes open-source?
  • GEOSTORM: Fans of natural disaster movies will get a little bit of everything in this movie, set in the distant future where technology controls the weather.
  • LOONEY TUNES STREAMING SERVICE: Boomerang is on pace to become an animated warehouse, grabbing the rights to stream 1000 episodes of cartoons, including Looney Tunes.
  • LITTLE MERMAID: The upcoming live action movie is not made by Disney, instead focusing on the original fairy tale. The trailer proves to be brilliantly bad.

  • BEFORE I FALL: An alternative to Logan this weekend is this movie, which appears to be a teen SciFi drama version of Groundhog Day.

  • THE DISCOVERY: This intriguing movie is set in the near future, where a Doctor has discovered proof of the afterlife. It's coming to Netflix in May, with a fully loaded cast.
  • BETWEEN THE CRACKS: SCHITT$ CREEK: This series is funny and charming, starring Eugene Levy and some of his real life family members. It's light, with a great cast and definitely worth checking out.

  • LARA CROFT: It's becoming the age of Alicia Vikander, as she takes over the role of Lara Croft from Angelina Jolie. The villain being played by Walton  Goggins, is a huge bonus.

  • MILLIE BOBBIE BROWN: The star of Stranger Things will be joining the cast of Godzilla.
