    THE BUZZ: Peter Quill and his expanded superhero family battle new foes and lingering father issues as the Awesome Mixtape #2 re-introduces old favorites as your new summer soundtrack. Looks like it’s $1 billion or bust at the worldwide box office, too. James Gunn will return for chapter 3!

    THE BUZZ: Formerly titled About Ray, it seems the title to this transgender drama was changed perhaps to take advantage of Susan Sarandon’s “Feud” moment. The updated trailer reveals more of the dynamic between Sarandon, Naomi Watts and Elle Fanning’s characters.
