Need to beat the heat and watch a new movie this weekend? There are plenty of places to see them with theaters back up and running for the summer season and new films still streaming at home to entertain you and your family. 

This weekend, LeBron James partners with the animated Looney Tunes gang for a new family basketball comedy, Nicolas Cage is on a mission to get his pig back in a food-themed drama, Diego Boneta and Alexandra Daddario ("The White Lotus") play a neo-noir Romeo and Juliet in a modern-day crime romance, and Netflix debuts a female-centric action extravaganza starring Karen Gillan ("Guardians of the Galaxy") and a final chapter of a retro horror trilogy.

Here's a guide to movies that'll satisfy every cinematic taste, whether you want to mask up for a trip to the nearest big screen or you're fine hunkering down on the couch:

The 1996 original "Jam," which partnered a live-action Michael Jordan with an animated Bugs Bunny and Co., gets reimagined (but not improved) for a new generation with this forgettable adventure. This time, James is the A-list NBA superstar who has to hoop it up with the undisciplined cartoon characters to save him and his gamer son (Cedric Joe) when a villainous digital algorithm (Don Cheadle) takes them to the Warner Bros. digital "Server-verse." Plenty of cameos and corporate IP can't make up for a lacking narrative.

Where to watch: In theaters and on HBO Max

The Oscar-winning actor plays an Oregon truffle hunter whose beloved pig is kidnapped. That means a bloody revenge quest, right? Nope. Featuring a wonderfully soulful turn from Cage, this intriguingly quirky, somewhat bittersweet and surprisingly tender drama has more in common with "The Fisher King" than "John Wick," as Cage's bearded hermit ventures to Portland with his young buyer (Alex Wolff) to find his porcine best friend and revisit a past he abruptly left behind. 

Where to watch: In theaters

Director Leigh Janiak's excellent teen slasher trilogy, based on the R.L. Stine books, has chronicled how a witch's curse and a history of killers plagued the town of Shadyside in 1994 and 1978. The final chapter jumps back to the 17th century, with cast members playing different personalities or their main characters' ancestors in a narrative about forbidden love and chilling oppression, before wrapping up the movies in killer fashion, where they started.

Where to watch:Netflix

In the original 2019 film "Escape Room," six Chicago strangers were picked to compete for $10,000 by navigating deadly puzzles and trap-filled rooms. The sequel reunites the two survivors (Taylor Russell and Logan Miller), who travel to Manhattan to uncover the diabolical mystery corporation behind these high-tech shenanigans but walk right into another round to be played with other previous winners. "Champions" isn't as clever as the first movie, and worse, it's more interested in creating a franchise than telling a good story.

Where to watch: In theaters

Following in the family business of her missing mom (Lena Headey), a deadly assassin (Gillan) has to keep an 8-year-old girl (Chloe Coleman) safe after offing a Russian gangster and angering a powerful crime syndicate. While the explosive, candy-colored thriller is too derivative to feel refreshing – borrowing liberally from "Kill Bill" and "John Wick" – there are a couple of enjoyable shootouts, plus Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett and Carla Gugino play a great bunch of gun-toting allies for the main antiheroine.

Where to watch:Netflix

Surrounded by a bunch of kooky characters and way too many subplots, Daddario and Boneta play the rebellious black sheep of two warring media-conglomerate families, who also were childhood sweethearts. After a forced time apart, they fall back in love but have to deal with weirdo hitmen, insane potential suitors and overbearing parents. The leads are watchable and the movie's plenty stylish, yet it's essentially a middling retread of a tale we know all too well.

Where to watch: In theaters and on Apple TV, Vudu, Fandango Now

The seafaring thriller tries its best to be a new twist on the shark picture like "The Shallows," but can't even reach the level of "Jaws 3-D." Katrina Bowden and Aaron Jakubenko play the owners of a tourist-friendly charter plane on the Australian coast who are hired by a wealthy couple (Kimie Tsukakoshi and Tim Kano) for a quick trip. Unfortunately, the plane is attacked and sunk by a hungry great white, leaving the survivors bickering on a raft as a toothy predator lurks around them.
