Toy Story 4

Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called "Forky" to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy.

Boasting a Tomatometer Score of 98% and an Audience Score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, "Toy Story 4" has proven to be a critical darling since its release on June 21. The New Yorker's Anthony Lane said, "Cooley's film quickens and deepens," while Matthew Rozsa of Salon noted, "The latest installment, 'Toy Story 4,' is perhaps the bleakest (and most beautiful) of them all."

Rocketman

The story of Elton John's life, from his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through his influential and enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin.

With a Tomatometer Score of 89% and an Audience Score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, "Rocketman" has proven a solid option since its release on May 31.

"If you need somebody to recount the rise of a British rock god from pallid suburbia to the baroque extremes of fame, and to create a stir without causing too much of a fuss, Fletcher is your man," according to Anthony Lane of the New Yorker, while the Chicago Reader's Leah Pickett said, "The story reshuffles reality, especially time and facts, and the film is more enjoyable for it."

Annabelle Comes Home

Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room.

Released on Wednesday, June 26, "Annabelle Comes Home" already has a Tomatometer Score of 63% on Rotten Tomatoes.

"A smart, controlled film, made with considerable integrity," noted Mick LaSalle of San Francisco Chronicle, while indieWire's Eric Kohn said, "'Annabelle Comes Home' delivers on its title with the best 'Conjuring' spinoff so far, in large part because it has such modest aims."

Yesterday

A struggling musician realizes he's the only person on Earth who can remember The Beatles.

Set for wide release on Friday, June 28, "Yesterday" already has a Tomatometer Score of 63% on Rotten Tomatoes. Tribune News Service's Katie Walsh said, "Even if this modern fairy tale doesn't hold up on close inspection, Boyle does his best to make sure the ride is enjoyable," and Kaplan vs. Kaplan's Jeanne Kaplan noted, "The success of 'Yesterday lies in the performance by Patel. He is extraordinary."
