With a PG-13 rating, it’s the perfect flick for teens and adults looking to dive into the underwater kingdom of Atlantis.

For the younger crowd, “Mary Poppins Returns” might just be the choice for you.

The movie picks up decades after Mary Poppins’ first visit to the Banks house. The beloved nanny swoops in to work some magic as the family deals with a personal loss.

If “Aquaman” isn’t the superhero for you, have no fear. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is here.

The film is a fresh take on the world of Spider-Man with a unique visual style. Plus, a stellar cast with Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Chris Pine, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Nicolas Cage and Liev Schreiber.
