The summer is in full swing and that means a variety of movies are rolling out to audiences across the globe. This weekend, a couple of remakes of popular movies are set to be released today nationwide.

Men in Black: International

This movie is the fourth installation of the Men in Black series, which dates back to 1997. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson star as two agents who fight aliens on Earth with advanced weaponry. But in the heat of battle, the duo discover they must face a far more dangerous foe – within the ranks if their own MiB.

This science fiction movie has not done well with the critics. Rotten Tomatoes’ movie critics scored this a 27 percent rating while the audience gave it a 70 percent rating.



Forty-eight years after the original Shaft movie came out, the fifth movie in this series hits theaters today.

Shaft takes place in Harlem, New York and is about an FBI cyber security expert (Jessie Usher) who joins forces with his estranged father (Samuel L. Jackson) to investigate a friend’s mysterious death.

This action comedy has received mixed reviews so far. Rotten Tomatoes scored this movie a 37 percent rating.


Murder Mystery:

If you would rather stay at home than go to the movie theaters, Netflix has a mystery comedy that might be worth checking out.

Murder Mystery is about New York Police Officer (Adam Sandler) who goes on a European vacation with his wife (Jennifer Aniston) trying to reinvigorate their marriage. However, the vacation does not go according to plan when the couple is framed for murder after having a chance encounter with a billionaire.

This movie is set to stream on Netflix Friday.
