The final film for the current group of X-Men and the second “Secret Life of Pets” movie open this weekend, and both will be big hits.

‘Dark Phoenix’

One of the most popular “X-Men” comic-book storylines comes to life as darkness invades Jean Grey (Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on “Game of Thrones”) and the X-Men must battle one of their own. James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and more return for what may be the last “X-Men” movie for several years.

‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’

The plot is unknown, but we see it as a comedy about dogs and cats doing funny things, along with other animal friends. Just a guess.
