Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers.

Captain Marvel is the 21st installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and perhaps the most controversial film released by Marvel Studios? I really don’t care about Brie’s comments or how people may or may not have misconstrued them—I just wanted to watch a movie in one of my favorite franchises, so that’s what I did. Moving on, the film was directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and was also written by them and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.

Bumblebee is the sixth installment in the Transformers franchise and the first one not directed by Michael Bay (thank god.)  Instead of Bay, Travis Knight seats in the directing chair. Before Bumblebee Knight had only directed animated films, so this is quite an ambition jump. Christina Hodson wrote this film and has also written the upcoming Birds of Prey film.
