In a post-apocalyptic world, two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear. Not a sound can be heard from the family hiding in silence, but all it takes is one noise and everything can go wrong. Starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.
#2 Avengers: Infinity War
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality.

Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson.
#3 Love, Simon
Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it’s a little more complicated.

Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Starring Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, and Josh Duhamel.
#4 Isle of Dogs
When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture. Featuring voices of Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, and Bryan Cranston.

In this adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel, Elizabeth Bennet lives with her mother, father and sisters in the English countryside. As the eldest, she faces mounting pressure from her parents to marry. When the outspoken Elizabeth is introduced to the handsome and upper-class Mr. Darcy, sparks fly. Although there is obvious chemistry between the two, Darcy’s overly reserved nature threatens the fledgling relationship. Starring Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFayden.
Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. Starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay.

#8 Darkest Hour
A thrilling and inspiring true story begins at the precipice of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history. Starring Gary Oldman and Lily James.
#9 Lady Bird
Marion McPherson, a nurse, works tirelessly to keep her family afloat after her husband loses his job. She also maintains a turbulent bond with a teenage daughter who is just like her: loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet, and Laurie Metcalf.
#10 My Friend Dahmer
The true, haunting story of young Jeffrey Dahmer — the shy adolescent in high school who becomes a notorious serial killer years later. Starring Ross Lynch and Alex Wolff.
