Miles Teller and Jonah Hill play twentysomethings who find themselves dealing with the shadiest people as actual arms dealers. Sounds about right—we can’t wait to laugh our heads off with these funny boys. 

  1. The Secret Life of Pets (August 24)

You know what your toys do when you leave the room—now find out what your pets get up to when you're not around. Cutest things ever so prepare for lots of cooing and squealing (on your part, not your pets’)!

  1. Nine Lives (August 17)

Have you ever encountered a cat who acted so peculiarly, you wondered if it was a human in another life? Well here we have a misbehaving dad getting all Freaky Friday with his most hated animal in the world as his mystical punishment. He’s got one week to prove that he loves and prioritizes his family, or else be stuck as a cat for the rest of his nine lives!

Tip: your little siblings or cousins can watch this movie for free—just buy two tickets on August 20 or 21 and you’ll get two free tickets for the kids plus a bunch of freebies!

It's never too late to pursue your dreams, as you'll learn from the true story of frustrated singer and heiress Florence Foster Jenkins, played by Meryl Streep. Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg (Howard from The Big Bang Theory!) join the fun.
