Getting fans of the Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawn ’80s rom-com to fall for How I Met Your Mother director Rob Greenberg’s remake will be a challenge. But with the gender role reversal, Anna Faris driving the boat, and a screenplay co-written by Mrs. Doubtfire writer Leslie Dixon, it at least has a shot.

In what feels like a mash-up of a supernatural Guillermo del Toro creature-feature and a Duplass Brothers indie about self-help, small-screen star Johnny Galecki leads a cast of down-and-outs on a journey to cleanse their souls of the poison weighing them down. Bonus: cute little toxin monsters.
Xavier Beauvois, who directed the award-winning Of Gods and Men, takes the helm here, though this wartime drama focuses not on the men, but rather the women holding down the fort—or more accurately—the farm. So, yes, there will be farming. But there will also be drama and romance.
She’s primed to become more notorious than Biggie himself. She’s Ruth Bader Ginsberg, “hero, icon, dissenter,” and she’s at the epicenter of directing team Julie Cohen and Betsy West’s crowd-pleasing documentary that’s as powerful as it is romantic.
Reunited and it feels so good: Charlize Theron joins director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody for another raw examination of life’s trials and tribulations. This time, however, she isn’t the face of prolonged adolescence; rather, she plays a mother on the verge. Her savior? A nanny named Tully.
Meet the “world’s most depressed mom” in Dominic Savage’s anti-Mother’s Day feature starring a stripped-down and emotionally wrought Gemma Arterton as Tara, a desperate housewife who books a one-way ticket to Paris to rediscover her own sanity.
We imagine Melissa McCarthy is the life of every party, so it’s no wonder she’s the middle-aged divorcée-to-be at the center of real-life husband Ben Falcone’s laugh-out-loud comedy. She plays Deanna, a mom whose newfound freedom allows her to explore higher education—frat parties included.
It’s rare that a gruesome rape-revenge film earns a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, but French filmmaker Coralie Fargeat’s Revenge did just that. A brutal 108 minutes dedicated to a woman unleashing her wrath on the men who do her wrong, this stylized feature is the feminist bloodbath you want to get sticky in.
A winning cast assemble for the equal-parts humor and melancholy in the cinematic version of Anton Chekhov‘s tragicomic play about art, fame, and falling for someone who’s fallen for someone else. You have Saoirse Ronan, Corey Stoll, Elisabeth Moss—oh, and Annette Bening.
Margot Robbie pulls out all the costumes for Vaughn Stein’s dystopian neon-drenched feature debut, playing a nurse, a waitress, a stripper, and a neo-noir cold-blooded killer. Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher, and Mike Myers join the It actress for this revenge thriller set in an anonymous city.
Separating what it is real and what is “fake news” when it comes to one of 2018’s most anticipated sequels is stickier than the sweaty rubber suit Ryan Reynolds dons as the film’s potty-mouthed anti-hero. Here’s what we know for sure: Josh Brolin is Cable, more curse words, and ninjas.
We’re getting used to seeing Ethan Hawke as the protagonist of a smaller-production sinister gem (In a Valley of Violence, Predestination, The Woman in the Fifth). In his latest indie thriller, directed by Taxi Driver writer Paul Schrader, Hawke plays a solitary clergyman in a crisis of faith, while Amanda Seyfried co-stars.
Another period drama starring Saoirse Ronan, Dominic Cooke’s adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel charts the wedding night of a couple, Edward and Flo, who can’t seem to consummate their relationship. Repressed memories, societal codes of conduct, and shattered expectations are all at play.
Carla Simon is an astute observer of the human condition in this autobiographical film about her childhood, which saw the six-year-old move from her deceased mother’s house in Barcelona to her aunt’s abode in the countryside. It has all the shimmer of Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere and all the pint-sized wonder of Sean Baker’s The Florida Project.

Chewbacca can add the French Riviera to his list of out-of-this-world destinations he’s visited, as Ron Howard’s Lucasfilm spinoff about Han Solo’s adventures pre-Rebellion is set to make its world premiere at the snazzy shindig known as the Cannes Film Festival. Hopefully, Chewy packs a tux. And a razor.
