Crazy Rich Asians hit theaters earlier this week and it looks like the spirited romantic comedy is going to be a hit. Good for all involved. Meanwhile, Mark Wahlberg made a ridiculous action movie that's also out this weekend. At home, you can find the biggest film in the world this year, Avengers: Infinity War, so that's great too. I've also got a new Preacher write-up, the latest Criterion announcement, and more. Finally, be sure to check out this week's podcast covering The Meg. We discuss the film and play Shark Math! Enjoy.

In Theaters Now:

It's a big weekend for a silly, old bear and a bunch of super-powered kids. Christopher Robin and The Darkest Minds are the big releases of the week, along with The Spy Who Dumped Me, which I didn't see.

This week is one I know I've been waiting for because Mission: Impossible - Fallout is upon us. Given how reliable these Tom Cruise movies are, it's a fine time to say everyone looking for a fun action film and more should go seek out this film on the biggest screen possible. If that's not enough, there's a true cinematic gem, Blindspotting, also out in more theaters. At home, you can find a fantastic Criterion Collection release, along with some other worthwhile releases. I also have a new write-up for this week's Preacher and a look at the trailer for Glass. Lastly, there are two good podcast episodes we released this week, which are certainly worth listening to. Enjoy!
