We've finally reached a point in most places where if you're vaccinated, you no longer need a mask. This also means that there aren't any capacity limits for theaters. So now there's more room for you to check out the new movies that are hitting theaters this month. To help you decide what's worth your time and money, Perri Nemiroff walks us through a couple movies to check out in our Noovie Closeup.

F9: The Fast Saga

First, we'll get started with the hottest movie of the month. After many years and many films, the Fast & Furious franchise is giving us another action-packed blockbuster to kick off the summer, "F9." There are so many reasons to go watch this film in theaters. But we'll just stick to the main ones for now.

One big reason people love this franchise is for its characters, new and old. There is a central group of players for the most part, but there are also some underrated drivers and villains from different films that people don't talk about. In this film, almost all of the main characters from the previous movies are going to be joining in on the fun.

Another thing that never fails to excite audiences about these films... the stunts! Whether it's the extreme car races/chases or the absurdly huge explosions, there's something for everybody. And if you can believe it, this film is supposed to be the craziest one yet. We know for a fact that cars will literally be flying in this flick. And we don't mean flying in the sense that they're going really fast, we mean that some cars will be airborne. So, you'll have that to look forward to. Make sure to get your tickets to this smoke show now as "F9" hit theaters tomorrow.

The Hitman's Wife Bodyguard

The second film that you should consider watching came out earlier this month. "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" is a sequel film that has the unconventional trio of Ryan Reynolds, Salma Hayek, and Samuel L. Jackson teaming up. Michael Bryce (Reynolds) and Darius Kincaid (Jackson) could barely stand each other in their first outing. And now, thanks to Darius' wife Sonia Kincaid, they'll all be reunited. Bryce has actually decided to give up bodyguarding and right as he comes to terms with his new, peaceful life, Sonia yanks him back into the game. You don't need a Noovie Closeup to see that nothing ever really goes well for Michael Bryce. Go figure.
