Mrs. Davis trailer pits an angry nun against an all-powerful AI

There’s no shortage of stories about artificial intelligence going rogue. The Terminator and Matrix franchises are both prime examples of that. However, a new Peacock original series, Mrs. Davis, is taking a different tack. In this show, the titular A.I. isn’t evil, but that doesn’t mean that Mrs. Davis should dictate the fate of the world. And the AI of Mrs. Davis is so powerful that it actually encourages its chief detractor, a young nun named Simone, to come after it.

Former GLOW star Betty Gilpin is headlining the series as Simone, and she seems to be surprised that Mrs. Davis wants her to find the Holy Grail. And Mrs. Davis simply won’t take no for answer. Somehow, we don’t expect this grail to be the cup of eternal life. But it does raise the question about what the grail might be in a modern world where technology is king.

Fortunately for Simone, she won’t be alone on her quest. Her former boyfriend, Wiley (Jake McDorman), reappears in her life as an anti-AI zealot and the leader of his own movement against Mrs. Davis. Simone and Wiley don’t have much in common anymore, but they have a common purpose in this fight even if they don’t exactly see eye to eye.

Mrs. Davis also features veteran character actress Margo Martindale as Mother Superior for Simone’s order of nuns. The rest of the cast includes Andy McQueen, Ben Chaplin, David Arquette, Elizabeth Marvel, Chris Diamantopoulos, Ashley Romans, and Katja Herbers.

Damon Lindelof and Tara Hernandez co-created Mrs. Davis, which will premiere on Peacock on April 20.

Where to watch all the John Wick movies
Keanu Reeves in John Wick.

With John Wick: Chapter 4 out now and receiving rapturous praise from critics and audiences alike, there is one question that many are now asking: what is the greatest action film of the 21st century? Mad Max, Skyfall, The Raid, The Dark Knight, and Mission Impossible: Fallout all have compelling cases. However, compiling the best action films of the last 23 years and not mentioning John Wick is a crime against humanity. Arguments could be made for all three John Wick movies; that's how strong they are in the action genre.

John Wick started with a simple premise. Wick (The Matrix's Keanu Reeves, who is no stranger to action), a former hitman, returns to the criminal world he left behind after the arrogant son of a Russian mobster kills his dog, a gift from his deceased wife. Hellbent on revenge, Wick hunts down the son with reckless abandon, killing every single person who stands in his way. John Wick was a sleeper hit in 2014, and 9 years later, the story about a legendary hitman mourning the loss of his wife and dog is a global franchise. The fourth film, John Wick: Chapter 4, just earned the highest opening weekend gross of the franchise.

It seems there's no franchise more beloved by moviegoers than the John Wick franchise. From the first movie's humble origins as a B-movie quietly launched in the fall of 2014 to the latest installment John Wick: Chapter 4's big-budget tentpole release, the John Wick movies have only grown in popularity and critical acclaim in the nine years it has existed.

Every John Wick movie has been praised for its innovative action and stylish direction, but which one ranks at the top? Is it the original John Wick, which established the series in the first place? Or is it Parabellum, which dramatically expanded the scope and depth of the franchise? The following is a list of all the John Wick movies, ranked in ascending order by their Rotten Tomatoes score.
