Next up we see a different side to Jason Momoa (who you might remember from this one) as a loving father and devoted husband who is seeking the truth in the action-packed drama, Sweet Girl. Last, but definitely not the least, whose heart will Elle break in The Kissing Booth 3 as she works on her bucket list while trying to make the right decisions for her future?

The River Runner – 8/25/2021
The story of Scott Lindgren’s 20-year quest to be the first person to paddle the four great rivers that originate from Tibet’s sacred Mount Kailash is more than a gripping whitewater flick. It is also an intimate chronicle of an emotionally stunted athlete who’s having a breakthrough after a life crisis. As a highly accomplished expedition kayaker and whitewater filmmaker, Lindgren always forbade any sign of emotional vulnerability on the river; he saw it as a weakness that might jeopardize the fortitude needed for extreme waters. It takes a life-changing diagnosis, followed by a dark night of the soul, for him to finally learn how to show up with an open heart.
Take a look at the entire line-up here.
