Our favorite STAR will take over the big screen on July 5! That’s right, Mia Goth returns as Maxine in theaters on Friday, July 5, in the slasher-thriller MaXXXine. I loved everything about this movie and can’t wait for you all to check it out! And, of course, part of what makes the film so great, is the soundtrack. After all, this wouldn’t be an A24 or Ti West production if it didn’t feature a killer soundtrack! 

MaXXXine is the third movie in the X franchise from A24 and Ti West. This time, we see Maxine chasing fame in Hollywood. The story is set in the 1980s, and becoming famous is not the only thing Maxine has to worry about, there’s also someone out to kill her known as the Night Stalker. The movie stars Mia Goth, Elizabeth Debicki, Giancarlo Esposito, Kevin Bacon, Lily Collins, Halsey, and others. 

No spoiler alert is necessary here as there are no spoilers ahead! If you have not watched the movie, please know this space is safe. All we do is list the songs that play in the movie MaXXXine just in case you missed one or two (if you’ve seen it) or want a heads-up to know what anthems to expect.
