This summer spinoff from the Fast & Furious franchise centers on the titular characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2), Hobbs & Shaw reunites the reluctant allies in England to take on a new foe: a rogue MI6 agent played by Idris Elba.

André Øvredal (Trollhunter) directs this first adaptation of the popular children's horror book series by Alvin Schwartz. Produced by Guillermo del Toro, the decently reviewed, PG-13-rated film is set in 1968 and does not attempt to faithfully recreate any of the original scary stories, opting instead to combine elements from multiple tales into something new.

Writer-director Lulu Wang’s second feature is based on an autobiographical story she told on a 2016 episode of This American Life. After learning her grandmother had terminal lung cancer, her family decided to not inform her grandmother of the diagnosis and instead throw a wedding to reunite the family. In the movie version of this story, Awkwafina’s Billi is in the same position Lulu was in—wanting to tell her grandmother about her illness and comfort her. Billi’s attempt to balance her desires against those of her family results in one of the best-reviewed films of the year.

Think of it as Superbad Junior. The Office writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg returned to the big screen for the third time (following Year One and Bad Teacher) with this R-rated comedy following the daylong odyssey of a trio of sixth graders who accidentally break a drone belonging to a parent and skip school to find a replacement—while prepping for their first "kissing party." Produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Stupnitsky's feature directorial debut earned mixed reviews, with some critics questioning the combination of young protagonists and raunchy humor (filled with F-bombs and sex toys), though their biggest complaints seemed to be a lack of originality and way too much repetition in the jokes.

Set in 1950s America, the latest film from director Rick Alverson (The Comedy, Entertainment) follows a young man (Tye Sheridan) and a renowned lobotomist (Jeff Goldblum) as they tour asylums, eventually meeting the leader (Denis Lavant) of a growing New Age movement. It’s another challenging, offbeat offering from Alverson—one likely to divide audiences as it has critics.

A young man with Down syndrome (played by newcomer Zack Gottsagen, who has Down syndrome in real life) runs away from his nursing home to pursue his dream of becoming a professional wrestler, enlisting an outlaw (a universally praised Shia LaBeouf—and, yes, he was shooting this very film when he got arrested) to aid him along the way. John Hawkes, Jon Bernthal, Bruce Dern, Thomas Haden Church, Yelawolf, and Dakota Johnson fill out the cast of this Southern drama—an Audience Award winner at SXSW—from first-time directors Mike Schwartz and Tyler Nilson.

The latest crowd-pleaser from director Gurinder Chadha is her best film since Bend It Like Beckham, according to critics who saw the film at its Sundance premiere early this year. (The film then set a likely record for a Sundance acquisition when New Line picked it up for $15 million.) Based on the memoir Greetings from Bury Park by Sarfraz Manzoor, this coming-of-age tale set in 1987 follows Javed, a 16-year-old British Pakistani boy, who lives in the town of Luton during the difficult times of Thatcher’s England. His life changes when he’s introduced to the songs of Bruce Springsteen.

As with his previous documentaries The Red Chapel (winner of the World Cinema Documentary Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival) and The Ambassador, Danish director Mads Brügger takes a unique approach to his latest subject: the 1961 death of Secretary-General of the United Nations Dag Hammarskjöld. Hammarskjöld, who was pushing for Congo’s independence at the time, died when his plane mysteriously crashed in what is now Zambia. Brügger joins Swedish aid worker Goran Bjorkdahl, who has been investigating the conspiracies surrounding the crash since 2011. The film’s findings have been challenged in the New York Times, but that didn't stop critics from raving about Cold Case at its Sundance premiere in January.

Writer-director Pawel Pawlikowski’s follow-up to the Oscar-winning Ida is a love story inspired by his parents. Taking place in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia, and Paris, the film follows two mismatched musicians, Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) and Zula (Joanna Kulig) through their turbulent romance. Featuring stunning black-and-white cinematography by Łukasz Żal, Cold War earned three Oscar nominations among numerous accolades. This Criterion Collection release adds a conversation between the director and fellow filmmaker Alejandro G. Iñárritu, plus a pair of making-of features.

The latest in a long line of documentaries to take on the conflict in Syria (a group that includes Last Men in Aleppo and City of Ghosts, to name just two) is the personal account of Syrian filmmaker Waad al-Kateab, who filmed her life in Aleppo for five years, during which she fell in love, got married and had a daughter (the Sama of the title). Co-directed with Edward Watts, the film combines the intimate and epic, illuminating the difficulties the war inflicted on women and children. In addition to the stellar reviews, For Sama also picked up awards at SXSW and Cannes.

French-Canadian director Philippe Lesage's excellent second feature returns the star of his semi-autobiographical debut The Demons, Édouard Tremblay-Grenier. (He plays the same character here, though you don't need to have seen the prior film to follow the story in Genesis.) He's joined in this dark coming-of-age tale by two other teenage protagonists (siblings played by Théodore Pellerin and Noée Abita), with the film following each of their romantic pursuits (at both an all-boys boarding school and at college)—which range from awkward to harrowing.

The latest from the prolific Korean director Hong Sang-soo (The Day After, Claire’s Camera, On the Beach at Night Alone, and recently released Grass) takes place at a hotel by the Han River where an aging poet waits to meet his sons. While he’s there, the poet becomes fascinated by two women (Kim Min-hee and Song Seon-mi), getting lost in his own thoughts. Hong once again strikes a balance between the insightful, the ambiguous, the emotional, and the dryly humorous.

Director Gavin Hood’s follow-up to Eye in the Sky is a different type of political thriller. Based on the book The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War, the under-the-radar August release stars Keira Knightley as Katharine Gun, the British secret-service officer who leaked a confidential NSA memo to expose an illegal U.S.–U.K. spying operation.

"Repeatedly delayed, shelved for nearly two years, then dumped in mid-August" is normally not a formula for a successful film—and, in this case, it certainly wasn't. Just the second film directed by Richard Linklater to receive a non-green Metascore (in fact, it's his worst-reviewed film to date), this adaptation of the popular 2012 novel of the same name by Maria Semple stars Cate Blanchett as the titular Bernadette, a Seattle architect who mysteriously vanishes just prior to a family vacation. It falls to her precocious teenage daughter Bee (Emma Nelson) to investigate. Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, James Urbaniak, Judy Greer, and Laurence Fishburne also star in the dramedy.
