From Matthew Vaughn, the creative mind behind the Kingsman franchise, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, and Stardust, comes his latest explosive action-adventure, Argylle. Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World) stars as Elly Conway, the introverted and awkward author behind the best-selling “Argylle” book series. After struggling with writer’s block, Elly decides to head home to her parents, but while on the train ride, she crosses paths with Aidan Wylde (Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell), a real-life spy, who warns her off some nefarious forces who are chasing after her. Elly soon learns that everything she’s written in her popular book series has come true and that a shadowy organization known as the Divison has put a target on her back. She’s even more shocked to learn that the titular character of her book series (Henry Cavill) is a real person.

‘Ricky Stanicky’ Review: John Cena Is Wonderfully Bonkers In Raunchy Comedy

Peter Farrelly’s return to comedy works because of John Cena’s goofy and committed performance as the titular character.

After venturing into more dramatic territory with the Best Picture winner Green Book and the Vietnam drama The Greatest Beer Run Ever, Academy Award winner Peter Farrelly is returning to his comedic roots with the R-rated comedy Ricky Stanicky. Zac Efron (The Iron Claw), Jermaine Fowler (Coming 2 America), and Andrew Santino (Dave) star as Dean, Wes, and JT, three childhood best friends who created an imaginary friend named “Ricky Stanicky” to blame whenever they get in trouble or when they need to get away from their families and responsibilities. After missing the birth of JT’s son, their significant others demand to meet the real Ricky Stanicky. The three friends end up hiring Rock-Hard Rod (John Cena), a washed-up, alcoholic actor who spends his days performing raunchy parodies of popular songs. Rod ends up wooing Dean, Wes, and JT’s friends and family, and even lands a job working alongside Dean and JT, flipping their lives upside down. Lex Scott Davis (The First Purge), Academy Award nominee William H. Macy (Shameless), and Anja Savcic (Loudermilk) co-star in the comedy.

‘Poor Things’ Review: Emma Stone and Yorgos Lanthimos Create a Weird World in One of the Year’s Best Movies

Also starring Mark Ruffalo and Willem Dafoe, ‘Poor Things’ is a staggering vision from Yorgos Lanthimos.

‘Mean Girls’ Review: Just Hit Me With a Bus Instead

Mean Girls eschews all the joys of the best musicals in favor of a hollow retread of the original movie.

Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr.‘s new musical take on Mean Girls comes two decades after the release of the original, which became a pop culture phenomenon. Based on the Tony-nominated Broadway musical (which in turn was based on the 2004 film), Mean Girls tells the story of Cady Heron (Angourie Rice), a homeschooled teen who moves back to the United States after spending most of her childhood with her mother (Jenna Fischer) in Kenya. Excited to attend high school for the very first time, Cady quickly befriends social outcasts Janis ʻImi’ike (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian Hubbard (Jaquel Spivey), who warn her of the toxic clique known as the Plastics led by the popular but cruel Regina George (Reneé Rapp). When Cady is invited to join Regina and her friends, Janis attempts to get Cady to tell her all of their dirty little secrets. Tina Fey and Tim Meadows reprise their roles as Ms. Norbury and Principal Duvall from the 2004 film, alongside a cast that also includes Avantika (Senior Year), Bebe Wood (Love, Victor), Christopher Briney (The Summer I Turned Pretty), Busy Philipps (Cougar Town), and Jon Hamm (Mad Men).

‘American Fiction’

Release Date: Friday, March 8

Erika Alexander as Coraline and Jeffrey Wright as Thelonious 'Monk' Ellison in American Fiction.

‘American Fiction’ Review: Jeffrey Wright Is Spectacular in Sharp Satire

Based on the novel by Percival Everett, this playful yet pointed feature debut from writer-director Cord Jefferson takes aim at modern storytelling.

Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Cord Jefferson‘s (Watchmen) triumphant directorial debut, American Fiction is a biting satire on racial identity, white liberalism, and how the elite views black art and storytelling. Academy Award nominee Jeffrey Wright (The Batman) stars as Monk Ellison, an academic, writer, and professor living in Los Angeles, who is put on temporary leave from his university after a confrontation with one of his students. While traveling back home to Boston to spend time with his family and attend a literary seminar, Monk learns about the hot new bestselling novel “We’s Lives in Da Ghetto,” written by Sintara Golden (Issa Rae). Much to his dismay, Monk sees the liberal elite have championed the novel, which he believes is full of negative black stereotypes. After a family emergency puts Monk in a financially unstable position, he drunkenly writes a satirical novel titled “My Pafology,” and sends it to his agent and friend Arthur (John Ortiz). The book becomes a massive hit among the elite, with many taking the novel literally and unironically. American Fiction also stars Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish), Academy Award nominee Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), Erika Alexander (Living Single), Leslie Uggams (Deadpool), Adam Brody (The O.C.), Keith David (They Live), Okieriete Onaodowan (Hamilton), Myra Lucretia Taylor (The Big Sick), Raymond Anthony Thomas (Half Nelson), Miriam Shor (Younger), Michael Cyril Creighton (Only Murders in the Building), J.C. MacKenzie (Killers of the Flower Moon), and Patrick Fischler (Mad Men).
