Black Panther

Black Panther

Prince T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns to the high-tech African nation of Wakanda to ascend its throne in the wake of his father's death (as seen in Captain America: Civil War). But a usurper to the throne (Michael B. Jordan) and a bad guy with a sonic claw (Andy Serkis) stand in his way. Good thing our hero's got a vibranium-powered suit of armor to fall back on. Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed) directs this magnificently designed, Shakespearian-style superhero epic. FULL REVIEW: Afrofuturist epic takes superheroics in a fresh direction by Devin D. O’Leary (2/22/2018). 134 minutes PG-13.

Unfortunately things turn unexpectedly real and the host is kidnapped, leaving his guests to figure out what the heck is going on. 100 minutes R.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Only grown-up hipster nerds play board games now, so this belated sequel to 1995's Jumanji finds a bunch of teens discovering an ancient, mystical video game version of Jumanji. Naturally, they try it out and get transported inside the game itself. The joke this time around is that they end up in the "bodies" of some stereotypical video game avatars (played by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan) and must use their three allotted lives to escape. 119 minutes PG-13.

Pacific Rim Uprising

It's been 10 years since the events of the original Pacific Rim (cinematically speaking). Now it's up to Jake Pentecost (John Boyega from Star Wars: The Last Jedi), son of hard-nosed hero Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba, who ate it in the original), to save the world with his giant robot. Seems a mysterious (and presumably evil) organization has reopened the Breach to the giant, city-smashing Kaiju and has stolen a robot Jaeger of their own. Longtime writer Stephen S. DeKnight ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Spartacus: Blood and Sand") takes over for director Guillermo del Toro. 111 minutes PG-13.

Paul, Apostle of Christ

These days "faith-based" filmmakers have a lot more luck with modern-day religious movies (see for example: I Can Only Imagine). But if you're one of those old-fashioned Christians who prefer their religious films unabashedly Biblical, here's a straight-up New Testament costume drama. James Faulkner ("Game of Thrones") is the man, the myth, the epistle-writer himself. Jim Caviezel (Jesus in The Passion of the Christ) is herein demoted to Luke the Evangelist. 108 minutes PG-13.

Sherlock Gnomes

I know you don't remember, but there was, in fact, a 2011 film called Gnomeo & Juliet. It was financed by Disney, but made through Canada's Starz Animation. It had songs by Elton John (old ones, but still). Ozzy Osbourne played a ceramic deer. This is the sequel. Johnny Depp provides the voice for Sherlock Gnomes, a ceramic detective hired to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a bunch of garden gnomes. Chiwitel Ejiofor is his sidekick, Gnome Watson. (Huh, guess they ran out of puns.) 86 minutes PG.

Tomb Raider

The popular video game character last embodied by Angelina Jolie gets a reboot in this "prequel" starring Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl). Here, the young Lara Croft goes looking for her fortune-hunting father after he disappears on a mysterious, trap-filled island. Vikander is a talented actress, and the action is far more grounded in this version—but is that what we really want out of a Tomb Raider movie? 118 minutes PG-13.

Traffik

Paula Patton and Omar Epps star in this throwback exploitation thriller (from Codeblack Films) about an urban couple who head out to the mountains for a romantic weekend and end up accosted by a vicious biker gang. Roger Corman (The Wild Angels, Devil's Angels, Naked Angels, Angels Die Hard) would be proud. 96 minutes R.

Truth or Dare

A group of young people (Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Violett Beane among them) get caught up in a seemingly harmless game of Truth or Dare—only to find that someone, or something, is punishing those who refuse to tell a lie or refuse the dare. A dose of PG-13 supernatural horror for the teens from the studio that gave us the Insidious, Paranormal Activity and Sinister franchises. 100 minutes PG-13.

A Wrinkle in Time

Madeleine L'Engle's beloved junior sci-fi novel gets adapted by the fine folks at Disney and director Ava DuVernay (Selma). Newcomer Storm Reid stars as Meg, a stubborn 13-year-old whose astrophysicist father (Chris Pine) is sucked into a kind of "tesseract" and disappears somewhere into the vast cosmos. With the help of her brainy brother, a new schoolmate and a trio of wise supernatural beings (played by Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling), our underage heroine embarks on a trippy quest through time and space. It certainly looks shiny, with plenty of glitter and sequins, but the story comes across as pedantic and preachy when it should be filled with awe and wonder. 109 minutes PG.
