It’s a woman’s world in the realm when it comes to making the leap from page to screen, starting with Margot Robbie getting her chance to take the spotlight as Harley Quinn in the wild Cathy Yan-directed romp Birds of Prey. Charlize Theron showed she’s nowhere near done kicking ass with The Old Guard, as a hellbent immortal out for revenge under the direction of Gina Prince-Bythewood. And Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot re-teamed for Wonder Woman 1984. Chris Hemsworth, always happy to play a supporting role for the ladies like he did in 2016’s Ghostbusters, follows behind with his stunt-rockin’ Extraction.

Critics Consensus: Rendering a list of potentially explosive ingredients mostly inert, The New Mutants is a franchise spinoff that's less than the sum of its super-powered parts.
