Two reboots of popular movie series and two original films — one a workplace comedy, the other a zombie comedy — debut in movie theaters this weekend.

‘Men in Black International’

Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson (great together in “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Avengers: Endgame”) are your new agents, and they have a new mission: Find the mole in our organization and protect Earth from alien scum.


A new kind of Shaft, with the detective (Samuel L. Jackson) working a case with his son (Jessie T. Usher). Richard Roundtree is cast too, so there is a lot of Shaft in this movie.

‘Late Night’

Emma Thompson stars as a late-night TV host legend who is rocked when she is labeled as a woman who doesn’t support other women. The buzz is big for this comedic drama written by Mindy Kaling, who also plays the female writer the host hires for her show.

‘The Dead Don’t Die’

Indie-film auteur Jim Jarmusch surprises with a zombie horror-comedy with an all-star cast: Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Selena Gomez, Iggy Pop, Rosie Perez, Adam Driver and others.
