Dunkirk

Dunkirk

Writer-director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy) offers the finest film of his already impressive career with this epic yet intimate war story about the evacuation of Dunkirk, France during World War II. Nolan's ingenious script spins three stories at once, taking us to a week before the evacuation, a day before the evacuation and an hour before the evacuation. First, a terrified soldier tries to get off the bloody beach in France. Second, a fleet of ragtag private boats sets out from England to rescue the stranded army. Finally, a dedicated pilot runs a last-minute mission over the English Channel. As the time-fractured stories progress, they crash, successively, into one another. The result is a visceral, nerve-shredding and ultimately stirring portrait of the fear, chaos and heroism that surrounds war. FULL REVIEW: Christopher Nolan goes to war in a heart-pounding, historical drama about victory in the jaws of defeat by Devin D. O’Leary (7/20/2017). 106 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 7/20)

Megamind

It seems the world's greatest superhero, Metro Man (Brad Pitt), is out of the crime-fighting biz thanks largely to the efforts of his brainy nemesis Megamind (Will Ferrell). Unfortunately, that leaves Megamind with little to do. Naturally, he fabricates a sham superhero (Jonah Hill) to battle. But when that fake hero decides to destroy the world instead, it's up to Megamind to turn good and save the planet. This 2010 CGI toon comes to us from the folks who made Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, but it isn't nearly as good. 96 minutes PG. (Opens Tuesday 7/25)

Shrek

The photo-realistic animation in this 2001 kids' book come-to-life was groundbreaking at the time, and a top-notch cast (Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy) ensures plenty of laughs throughout. The story takes place in a fantasy world where fairy tales are real and a big, green ogre searches for love. 89 minutes PG. (Wednesday 7/26)

Skyfall

Bond is back in one of his biggest, best adventures to date--this 50th anniversary film from 2012. Bond (Daniel Craig), his confidence shaken by a failed mission, must save spy agency ice queen M (Judi Dench) when a ghost from her past (the wonderfully over-the-top Javier Bardem) returns looking for vengeance. This emotional (yes, emotional!), action-packed thriller is filled with shout-outs, in-jokes and cameos from throughout the 007 franchise's history. 143 minutes PG-13. (Opens Tuesday 7/25)

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Visionary director Luc Besson (Subway, La Femme Nikita, The Fifth Element, Lucy), turns a trippy French comic book into a trippy comic book of a movie. On a planet that serves as home to a thousand alien species, two interplanetary super-spies (The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Dane DeHaan and Suicide Squad's Cara Delevingne) must identify and stop a marauding menace from the stars in order to save the universe. Yes, it offers even more loopy, mind-bending eye candy than The Fifth Element, but you probably shouldn't spend much time analyzing the ludicrous, overstuffed storyline. 137 minutes PG-13.
