"Deadpool 2" — Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson/Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) returns, forming a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant Cable (Josh Brolin, who seems to have a monopoly on superhero villains this year, after playing Thanos in "Avengers: Infinity War").

"Book Club" — It's amazing that a pedigreed cast such as this — with Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen — comes together for this movie, a comedy about lifelong friends whose lives change after reading "50 Shades of Grey" in their monthly book club. But, hey, whatever gets the gang together.


"Show Dogs" — If you're in the mood for a talking pooch (and who isn't?), then this is your movie, about a police dog named Max (voice of Ludicris — yes, the rapper) who goes undercover at a pretentious dog show to rescue a stolen panda. I did not make any of that up.


DeadBeat Klub double feature — Horror fans can rejoice with a screening of two films Sunday, May 20, at Barleycorn's, 608 E. Douglas: "Vampire Clay" (about a plasticine demon that devours the denizens of a rural art school) at 7 p.m. and "Terrifier" (about a maniacal clown) at 8:30. It costs $10 for both films or $6 for one. The Wheat Street cart will be selling vegan hot dogs, because that's what you want when you watch gory scary movies, right?
