New movies this week: Watch Vin Diesel's 'Fast X,' Jack Harlow's 'White Men Can't Jump'

It's not really the summer movie season until Vin Diesel hits the gas pedal.

This weekend, the face of the action-packed "Fast and Furious" movies is back behind the wheel of a 10th installment of the franchise – and bringing Jason Momoa and Brie Larson into the fray this time around. Grammy-nominated rapper Jack Harlow goes Hollywood in a redo of a classic 1990s hoops comedy while writer/director Paul Schrader ("Taxi Driver") returns to investigate the morality of another complex male figure in a drama starring Joel Edgerton and Sigourney Weaver.

Here's a guide to new movies that will satisfy every cinematic taste, plus some noteworthy theatrical films making their streaming and on-demand debuts:

If you love to see Vin Diesel in furious mode: 'Fast X'

Vin Diesel (with Daniela Melchior) returns as Dom Toretto in "Fast X."

Ex-street racer Dominic Toretto (Diesel) and his crew return in a new globetrotting action adventure that puts them – and Dom's 10-year-old son – in the crosshairs of the government as well as a flamboyant and vengeful villain (Momoa) with ties to past exploits. The popular franchise has long been able to hurdle its own high bar for ridiculous action – the last film went to space! – but "Fast X" fails to innovate while saddled with a derivative narrative. Kudos, though, a whopping finale and over-the-top cliffhanger.

If you're a fan of modern basketball: 'White Men Can't Jump'

Jack Harlow (left) and Sinqua Walls play a pair of hustling hoopsters who team up in "White Men Can't Jump," a Hulu redo of the 1990s basketball comedy.

A new take on the original 1992 film with Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes changes up a lot with its basketball hustlers – a white former college star (Harlow) with two bum knees and a Black ex-high school phenom (Sinqua Walls) still harboring NBA dreams – who each need quick cash. This new take isn't necessary, nor is it better by any means. But the redo does have its moments, including wry commentary on 21st-century hoops race relations, plus the venerable Lance Reddick in one of his final roles (as Walls' screen dad).

If you live for intriguing morality plays: 'Master Gardener'

A talented horticulturalist (Joel Edgerton) is tasked with taking the grandniece of his employer (Sigourney Weaver) under his wing in "Master Gardener."

Better than "The Card Counter" but not quite to the heights of the deeply affecting "First Reformed," Shrader's newest drama casts Edgerton as Narvel, a stoic and knowledgeable horticulturist at a storied estate. His imperious boss (Weaver) asks him to take her grandniece (Quintessa Swindell) as an apprentice and keep her away from trouble, but it finds her anyway – and forces Narvel to revisit his own past as a violent neo-Nazi. Edgerton and Weaver are superb in a gripping film that digs into themes of identity and redemption.

If you enjoy a spin on the usual relationship comedy: 'Sanctuary'

Hal (Christopher Abbott) inherits his dad's hotel chain and tries to end the secret relationship with his longtime dominatrix (Margaret Qualley) in the darkly comic "Sanctuary."

Hal (Christopher Abbott), the son of a wealthy hotelier, maintains a secret relationship with dominatrix Rebecca (Margaret Qualley) that's helped him become a more confident businessman. When he stands to inherit his dad's business and wants to break it off ... well, she's not pleased. What unfurls is a psychosexual thriller with darkly funny rom-com elements where the two play cat and mouse with power dynamics and their feelings, the leads find a great groove together, and it wraps up in a most unexpected and satisfying fashion.

If you're a sucker for heartfelt addiction dramas: 'Stay Awake'

Wyatt Oleff (left) and Fin Argus play brothers who try to make plans for their futures though also have to take care of their drug-addict mom in the drama "Stay Awake."

Ethan (Wyatt Oleff) weathers personal issues at school and makes college plans and his big brother Derek (Fin Argus) has acting ambitions, though much of their time and effort is spent taking care of their loving mother (Chrissy Metz) and her addiction relapses. Director Jamie Sisley's affecting up-close view of the country's opioid crisis weaves in coming-of-age elements as both sons push their mom to seek the help she needs (but won't get) so all three can have a future.

If you want to see Henry Golding kill a bunch of people: 'Assassin Club'

Henry Golding stars in "Assassin Club" as an elite hit man given a final contract – to kill seven targets around the world – and unfortunately discovers they're equally skilled and have been hired to kill him.

Henry Golding, who last showed his action-movie mettle in "Snake Eyes," plays an elite assassin trying to go straight and start a real life with his fiancée (Daniela Melchior) when his handler (Sam Neill) wants him to take on one last round of targets. The rub: The killer learns that they're trying to kill him, too, which leads to uneasy alliances and all sorts of betrayals. The thriller is convoluted, dull and predictable, and the only one who seems to be having any fun is a wild-eyed Noomi Rapace as the most conniving personality of all.

If you're down for a sad true story: 'Anna Nicole Smith: You Don't Know Me'

Featuring never-before-seen footage, home movies and new interviews, the documentary "Anna Nicole Smith: You Don't Know Me" digs into the rise and fall of the infamous model and actress who died at age 39.

Pop culture mavens of the ’90s and 2000s will recall the rise and public fall of the late blonde bombshell, who went from Guess Jeans model and Playboy Playmate to reality-television trainwreck. Home movies and interviews with friends and families track her story, but instead of being an insightful look at who she really was underneath the artifice she created, the documentary is a fairly icky watch that digs into Anna Nichole Smith's painkiller addiction, her marriage to an elderly billionaire, questions of who fathered her baby daughter and other bits of a tragic life that ended at age 39.
