In an era when plenty of great content is available on any given streaming service, it can be tough to justify going to the movie theater as a regular experience. There are certain things, though, that movie theaters have going for them. One is the chance for a communal experience — watching a movie surrounded by strangers who may laugh or weep right along with you. Another is the sheer scale of the screens and the volume of the sound.

Those elements only get more enticing with IMAX formats, which makes the experience of seeing a movie on a large screen even more overwhelming. IMAX theaters have become a key part of the theatrical movie business, and this is a full rundown of every place in the country with an IMAX screen for you to check out.

The 50 best movies on Netflix right now (June 2024)
Glen Powell and Adria Arjona in Hit Man.

It's no secret that movies are struggling at the box office this summer, and yet this is also a week that makes us appreciate everything we get to see from the comfort of our own homes thanks to Netflix. If the addition of the Oscar-winning Godzilla Minus One weren't enough, Netflix also debuted a new original movie, Hit Man, which stars Glen Powell in the leading role.

That's a terrific one-two punch for this pair of the most popular movies on Netflix. By this time next week, there may be some random little-seen action flick on top of the list. But for now, having two great movies to watch on Netflix during the weekend brings a smile to our faces.

Best new movies coming to theaters in 2024
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys: Ride or Die.

The summer badly needs a hero at the box office, preferably before Deadpool & Wolverine arrives. While we're certain that the only real Marvel movie of 2024 can have a big opening weekend, it's not hitting theaters until July 26. That won't leave much time left for the summer season to rebound if nothing else resonates with audiences.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die's tracking numbers suggest that it will have a $40 million opening this weekend. That would have been great in March or April. In summer, that's a mediocre number. And as we've seen in the last few weeks, even Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga opened below its projections. If Bad Boys: Ride or Die meets the same fate, there's going to be more doom and gloom predictions about the future of movies.
