Call us old-school, but nothing beats watching movies on the big screen. The clear pictures and immersive audio give us a more satisfying viewing experience. Now that cinemas have been open for a while, film studios are releasing their backlog of movies that got pushed back from their initial 2020-2021 playdates. Here are some of the full-length features you should not miss at your favorite theater.

House of Gucci

Directed by Ridley Scott, the movie is based on the shocking true story of the eponymous fashion empire that made betrayal and murder trend long before the Internet was born.

The Comeback Trail

Hollywood screen legends and Oscar winners—Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, and Morgan Freeman lead the star-studded cast for The Comeback Trail, the action-packed comedy about a western production that hopes to literally kill its aging star.
