The Greatest of All Time

Alex Trebek is bravely, and publicly, fighting against pancreatic cancer—but he hasn't let it stop him from hyping the first-ever "Greatest Of All Time" tournament of America's "favorite quiz show." The multi-night event brings together the three highest earning winners in the long-running game show's history: Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and James Holzhauer.

Go see the film that took home the Golden Globe for Best Drama. During the first World War, two young British soldiers are given a nearly impossible mission—they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of troops—including one of the solider's own brothers. It's another classic in the making featuring one of the deadliest wars in history.

Just Mercy

In Theaters

This movie follows a real-life story of young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (played by fan-favorite Michael B. Jordan), and his history-making battle for justice. After his first case in rural Alabama, the odds are stacked against him for the rest of his career. It's a thought-provoking and important story to reemphasize the horrors many face against the judicial system, and yet still an extremely satisfying film to see.

Adidas Pharrell Williams 4D

10 am EST at Adidas

Unlike any of Pharrell Williams's signature sneaker silhouettes, this pair is still unequivocally of the Hu shoe family. Not that we're complaining. It includes Primeknit construction, patented cushioning, branded tabs and a sock-like fit around the ankle. We'd recommend no socks with these kicks. It's featured in two color schemes—olive and purple—but we kind of like the brightness of the purple.
