Even if you wouldn’t be caught dead eating in a McDonalds, this fascinating biopic about Ray Kroc and starring Michael Keaton is better than a Big Mac.
XXX: Return of Xander Cage
Vin Diesel returns to the XXX franchise, but we’re most excited about the ensemble cast, including Samuel L. Jackson and Toni Collette. D.J. Caruso directs the action flick.
Fifty Shades Darker
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan return in this sequel to the campy “mommie porn” film based on the E.L. James novels. The sequel promises to empower Anastasia.
John Wick: Chapter Two
What has Keanu Reeves been up to? Apparently, B-movies. This is the sequel to—you guessed it—”John Wick,” the 2014 cult favorite. Look for “Matrix” co-star Laurence Fishburne, too.
The LEGO Batman Movie
We loved “The LEGO Movie” and, until the sequel is finished, will enjoy this predictabe spin-off starring the voices of Will Arnett as Batman and Zach Galifianakis as the Joker.
The Great Wall
Matt Damon stars as a European mercenary traveling through ancient China who discovers exactly “what” the Great Wall was “really” built to defend the people from. No spoilers there.

Sony Pictures Entertainment
T2 reunites director Danny Boyle with Ewan McGregor and the original cast, but this sequel feels different. Maybe it’s the 21 years that have passed since the original.

“Empire” meets “A Different World” in this series. Anika Noni Rose stars as the embattled new president of a historically-black college in this sprawling, melodramatic drama.
Planet Earth II
A decade after the original “Planet Earth,” director David Attenborough is back with another seven hours of gorgeous nature, shot over the course of three years in 40 countries.

The Good Fight
