For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!”

This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming...and he’s ready.

Based on a true story, the New Line Cinema comedy “Tag” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing. “Tag” is directed by Jeff Tomsic (Comedy Central’s “Broad City”), with a starring ensemble cast led by Ed Helms (The “Hangover” movies, “We’re the Millers”), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”), Annabelle Wallis (“The Mummy”), Rashida Jones (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Isla Fisher (“Now You See Me”), Leslie Bibb (“Iron Man 2”), Hannibal Buress (“Neighbors”), with Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker, “The Town”).

Open: July 27, 2018 (wide release)

Warner Bros. Pictures—Brand: DC Comics / Starring: Kristen Bell, Will Arnett, Tara Strong / Directors: Aaron Horvath, Peter Rida Michail

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! Teen Titans GO! to the Movies finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!

Warner Bros.—Director: Jon Turteltaub—“National Treasure” franchise, “The Sorcerer's Apprentice” (2019) / Starring: Jason Statham, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Robert Taylor, Cliff Curtis, Bingbing Li, etc.

After escaping an attack by what he claims was by a 70-foot shark, expert deep sea diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) must confront his fears and risk everything to save those trapped in a sunken submersible that lies disabled at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Could the Megalodon still be alive?

On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean’s deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he’s sure he saw but still can’t prove exists—Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark. The average prehistoric Meg weighs in at twenty tons and could tear apart a Tyrannosaurus rex in seconds.

Written off as a crackpot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him his life. With a Ph. D. In paleontology under his belt, Taylor spends years theorizing, lecturing, and writing about the possibility that Meg still feeds at the deepest levels of the sea. But it takes an old friend in need to get him to return to the water, and a hotshot female submarine pilot to dare him back into a high-tech miniature sub.

Diving deeper than he ever has before, Taylor will face terror like he’s never imagined, and what he finds could turn the tides bloody red until the end of time. MEG is about to surface. When she does, nothing and no one is going to be safe, and Jonas must face his greatest fear once again.

The film is based on Steve Alten’s bestselling sci-fi novel, Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror about a giant, prehistoric shark that still exists and is swimming closer to the surface—near swimming beaches.

“Leaders are born from survival”

Official site

Open: August 17, 2018 (wide release)

Set 20,000 years ago in the Ice Age, an Upper Paleolithic period hunting expedition goes awry and a young survivor braves the inhospitable and dangerous conditions to find his way back.

Anthropologists call the humans of this supposed “period” “Solutreans,” humans like us, but who lacked metals (for whatever reason) and had to rely on their relatively advanced flint tool-making abilities and clever minds to survive. The term Solutrean derives from a site in France (Solutre-Pouilly), where archaeologists discovered numerous flint points and tools with the bones of reindeer, elephants, deer and horses.

The Happytime Murders

Open: August 17, 2018 (wide release)

STX Entertainment—Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks, Joel McHale, Maya Rudolph, Jimmy O. Yang, Leslie David Baker, etc. / Director: Brian Henson

A murder mystery set in a world where humans and puppets co-exist, but puppets are viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet cast of an '80s children's TV show begins to get murdered one by one, a former cop, who has since become a private eye, takes on the case.

When the stars of “The Happytime Gang” are mysteriously murdered, two mismatched detectives — one a type-A, take-no-prisoners human with a secret, and the other a crass, hard-drinking puppet with a connection to one of the victims — must put aside their differences to stop the killings and catch the culprit, while resisting the temptation to murder each other.

The raucous comedy explores a world where puppets and humans live side by side, and the puppet stars of the iconic TV show “The Happytime Gang” are some of the biggest celebrities around. But off camera, the family-friendly cast leads the kinds of lives that would make a tabloid writer blush.
