Argylle in theaters
Bryce Dallas Howard is Elly Conway, the reclusive author of a series of best-selling espionage novels, whose idea of bliss is a night at home with her computer and her cat, Alfie. But when the plots of Elly’s fictional books—which center on secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate—begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization, quiet evenings at home become a thing of the past.
Accompanied by Aiden (Sam Rockwell), a cat-allergic spy, Elly (carrying Alfie in her backpack) races across the world to stay one step ahead of the killers as the line between Elly’s fictional world and her real one begins to blur. The top-flight ensemble cast features Henry Cavill, John Cena, Ariana DeBose, Dua Lipa, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, Sofia Boutella, and Samuel L. Jackson. Alfie is played by Chip, the real-life cat of supermodel Claudia Vaughn (née Schiffer).
Scrambled in theaters
Quintessential eternal bridesmaid Nellie Robinson (Leah McKendrick) constantly finds herself between weddings, baby showers, and bad dates. When she begins to feel like the clock is ticking and is faced with bleak romantic prospects, Nellie decides to freeze her eggs—setting her on an empowering journey to a brave new world where she ultimately discovers “the one” she’s looking for might be herself.
The Tiger's Apprentice streaming on Paramount+
The life of Chinese-American teenager Tom Lee changes forever when he discovers he is part of a long lineage of magical protectors known as the Guardians. With guidance from a mythical tiger named Hu, Tom trains up to take on Loo, a force that is as powerful as a Guardian but with evil intentions to use magic to destroy humanity. To have a fighting chance against Loo, Tom must reunite all twelve Zodiac animal warriors and master his own newly discovered powers.
Bosco streaming on Peacock
In 2006, over two million Americans were incarcerated, but only one managed to escape a federal maximum-security wing while under 24-hour surveillance— Quawntay “Bosco” Adams. For the chance to be at his first child’s birth, he planned an ingenious escape with the help of a lonely Missouri woman whom he meets by replying to a personal ad.
Orion and the Dark streaming on Netflix
Join Orion and his new best friend on the adventure of a nighttime. The producer of How to Train Your Dragon and Academy Award winner Charlie Kaufman brings the award-winning children’s book Orion and the Dark to life in a heartfelt, whimsical adventure for the whole family.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith streaming on Prime Video
Two lonely strangers land a job working for a mysterious spy agency that offers them a glorious life of espionage, wealth, world travels, and a dream brownstone in Manhattan.

Their complex cover story becomes even more complicated when they catch real feelings for each other. What’s riskier, espionage or marriage?
