It sure isn’t easy being Superman’s dog! Krypto hails from Krypton and prides himself on having superpowers like his owner, but his social skills are decidedly alien at the dog park, and he has no idea how to be ordinary. But when his best friend Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto is sadly exposed to green kryptonite and stripped of his abilities, while a motley crew of shelter pets is exposed to orange kryptonite and become all-powerful.

Krypto must now learn to be less alien; and more ‘human’ to teach Batman’s dog Ace; Wonder Woman’s pig PB; Green Lantern’s squirrel Ch’p; and The Flash’s turtle, Merton, how to harness their new powers, work together, and become the superheroes they were destined to be. But can they defeat a twisted guinea pig named Lulu and save the Justice League and Metropolis from destruction? And will a bunch of strays find homes with the most famous superheroes on earth?

Nope – Don’t Look Up

‘What’s a bad miracle?’

Oscar winner Jordan Peele disrupted and redefined modern horror with Get Out and then Us. Now, he reimagines the summer movie with a new pop nightmare: the expansive horror epic, Nope.

The film reunites Peele with Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya ( Get Out, Judas and the Black Messiah), who is joined by Keke Palmer ( Hustlers, Alice) and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun ( Minari, Okja) as residents in a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery.

Nope, which co-stars Michael Wincott ( Hitchcock, Westworld) and Brandon Perea ( The OA, American Insurrection), is written and directed by Jordan Peele and is produced by Ian Cooper ( Us, Candyman) and Jordan Peele for Monkeypaw Productions. The film is released by Universal Pictures worldwide.

Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank

Assuming the role of town samurai

A hard-on-his-luck hound Hank (Michael Cera) finds himself in a town full of cats who need a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain’s (Ricky Gervais) evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant teacher (Oscar nominee and honorary awardee, Samuel L. Jackson) to train him, our underdog must assume the role of town samurai and team up with the villagers to save the day. The only problem ... cats hate dogs.

Also starring Oscar winner, Mel Brooks, George Takei, Aasif Mandvi, Gabriel Iglesias, Djimon Hounsou, Michelle Yeoh, Kylie Kuioka, and Cathy Shim.

Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank is a computer-animated martial arts comedy by Rob Minkoff and Mark Koetsier, with additional direction by Chris Bailey.

Second Chance

In pursuit of a dream

Directed by Cleon James of Top Notch Vision Films, Second Chance is the story of a Rastafarian man (Spragga Benz), who struggles to find a job in corporate America. Discouraged by his failures, he falls into a life of crime with old high school friends. Suddenly, a life or death situation forces him to lean on his spirituality and religious upbringing to change his ways and make things right.

Popular Jamaican dancehall artiste Spragga Benz is no stranger to the big screen with this lead role on the heels of his debut in Shottas. The action-drama also features award-winning actress Merlisa Determined, who has several recent movies on Netflix, well-known dancehall artiste and DJ Tony Matterhorn; famed DJ Supa Twitch; prominent Soca DJ Barrie Hype, Jodi Covington and up-and-coming actor Jhonn de La Puente.

Thor: Love and Thunder

The stakes are worth fighting for

Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Oscar winners Natalie Portman, Christian Bale and Russell Crowe. Directed by Oscar winner Taika Waititi.

Following the events of A vengers: Endgame (2019), Thor attempts to find inner peace, but must return to action and recruit Valkyrie, Korg, and Jane Foster – who has become the Mighty Thor – to stop Gorr the God Butcher from eliminating all gods.

Minions: The Rise of Gru

Unstoppable from the get-go

This summer, from the biggest global animated franchise in history, comes the origin story of how the world’s greatest supervillain first met his iconic Minions, forged cinema’s most despicable crew and faced off against the most unstoppable criminal force ever assembled in Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Long before he becomes the master of evil, Gru (Oscar nominee Steve Carell) is just a 12-year-old boy in 1970s suburbia, plotting to take over the world from his basement.

Featuring more spectacular action than any film in Illumination’s history and packed with the franchise’s signature subversive humor, Minions: The Rise of Gru stars a thrilling new cast, including the Vicious 6: Taraji P. Henson as cool and confident leader Belle Bottom, whose chain belt doubles as a lethal disco-ball mace; Jean-Claude Van Damme as the nihilistic Jean Clawed, who’s armed (literally) with a giant robotic claw; Lucy Lawless as Nunchuck, whose traditional nun’s habit hides her deadly nun-chucks; Dolph Lundgren as Swedish roller-skate champion Svengeance, who dispenses his enemies with spin kicks from his spiked skates; and Danny Trejo as Stronghold, whose giant iron hands are both a menace to others and a burden to him.

The film also stars Russell Brand as Young Dr Nefario, an aspiring mad scientist, Michelle Yeoh as Master Chow, an acupuncturist with mad kung fu skills, and Oscar winner Julie Andrews as Gru’s maddeningly self-absorbed mom.

Steered by the franchise’s original creators, Minions: The Rise of Gru is produced by visionary Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his long-time collaborators Janet Healy and Chris Renaud. The film is directed by returning franchise film-maker Kyle Balda ( Despicable Me 3, Minions), co-directed by Brad Ableson ( The Simpsons) and Jonathan del Val ( The Secret Life of Pets films), and features the iconic voice of Pierre Coffin as the Minions and a killer ’70s soundtrack courtesy of legendary Grammy-winning music producer Jack Antonoff.
