Don't know which movies to see at the box office? We got you!

Looking to go to the box office this weekend? Here are our top five picks of movies you definitely need to watch.

The Fate of the Furious


Dominic Toretto has turned evil in the latest Fast and Furious outing, and it’s up to his family to take him down. Though with Letty having gone rogue due to amnesia back in Fast & Furious 6, you have to wonder why folks aren’t immediately calling “mind control.” There is loads of action, guns and fast cars! It’s lit, basically, and you definitely don’t want to miss this one.

Ghost in the Shell


In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: a human who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers her life was stolen instead of saved. Now, she will stop at nothing to recover her past while punishing those who did this to her.

Kong: Skull Island


He is back and bigger than ever! Scientists, soldiers and adventurers unite to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean. Cut off from everything they know, they venture into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery soon becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape from a primal world where humanity does not belong. 

Get Out


You have probably seen this guy used as a meme several times. He is actually from the movie Get Out.

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behaviour as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined. This horror film will leave you shook.

Going in Style


Lifelong buddies Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine) and Albert (Alan Arkin) decide to buck retirement and step off the straight and narrow when their pension funds become a corporate casualty. Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three men risk it all by embarking on a daring adventure to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.
