  • 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.

  • BAYWATCH: It may sound like a ridiculous idea for a movie, but with The Rock involved, you have to at least give it a chance.

  • HAN SOLO CGI: A new actress is reportedly joining the Han Solo solo project, continuing with a theme of the newer Star Wars movies.

  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Rings comes back and appears to be going viral; The Space Between Us is a romantic sci-fi drama about a boy from Mars.

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