Lightyear – Legendary Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Chris Evans) is marooned on a hostile planet 4.2 million light-years from Earth alongside his commander and their crew. As Buzz tries to find a way back home through space and time, he’s joined by a group of ambitious recruits and his charming robot companion cat, Sox. Complicating matters and threatening the mission is the arrival of Zurg, an imposing presence with an army of ruthless robots and a mysterious agenda. Debuts August 3 on Disney+.

The Constant Gardener – This Oscar-winning feature film stars Rachel Weisz as a brilliant and dedicated activist, who is murdered in a remote area of Northern Kenya. Tessa’s traveling companion, a local doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and the evidence points to a crime of passion. The British High Commission in Nairobi assumes that Tessa’s widower, Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes), will leave the matter to their discretion. They could not be more wrong…. Debuts August 1 on BritBox.

Nocturnal Animals – Susan (Amy Adams) receives a package from her ex-husband Tony (Jake Gyllenhaal), whom she left 20 years earlier. Inside is a book manuscript called “Nocturnal Animals,” with a note that says she inspired him to write it. He asks for her opinion. Susan begins to read and quickly becomes obsessed with the script. She interprets the violent thriller as a secret threat of symbolic revenge, and finds herself recalling her past marriage, while confronting some dark truths about herself. Debuts August 1 on Netflix.

Young Adult – Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron) is writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson).
