The Mysterious Benedict Society is available exclusively via Disney+. Launched with the first two episodes immediately available, future installments are released each Friday so you can keep up with the latest goings-on in this quirky mystery adventure.

The Society is established by Mr. Benedict, a smart man who is keen to improve the world. That’s because, during a global emergency from a suffering economy and an endless stream of bad news, the evil Mr. Curtain who runs The Institute — a similarly evil school — is sending messages that infiltrate one’s subconscious, making it easy for him to slip negative ideas and thoughts into anyone’s minds. It’s down to Mr. Benedict and his team of four kids to stop such evil plans and save the world, along with reducing the anxiety that’s spreading throughout the globe.

Quirky yet with some very relevant themes, it’s sure to be a hit with both you and your kids, and potentially spark some conversation too.

For Hollywood entertainers, versatility is key to maintaining a successful career. Actor, singer, and comedian Jamie Foxx is pretty much the personification of the term "triple threat." Foxx has constantly evolved throughout his career and seems driven to push the limits of what fans expect from him.
Born Eric Marlon Bishop, he started taking piano lessons at 5 and later earned a scholarship to a music school in San Diego to advance his musical prowess. While in school, Foxx cut his teeth at local comedy clubs and open mikes. He would earn his rise to fame as a hilarious comic known for his impersonations on the 90s sketch-comedy show In Living Color.
Since then, Foxx has starred in a variety of movies and projects, ranging from biopics to superhero blockbusters. You might be familiar with his music or comedy specials, but here are 12 of the best Jamie Foxx movies and film projects.
