Arrival

Denis Villeneuve (best known for such hard-hitting crime films as Prisoners and Sicario) directs this sci-fi mystery in which a humble linguist (Amy Adams) is recruited by the military to figure out what a bunch of strange alien devices are trying to tell us. This is thoughtful, smartly assembled speculation, laced with fear, tension and a major sense of discovery. 116 minutes PG-13.

Doctor Strange

Marvel finally unleashes the magic on screen with its first mystical superhero. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as an egotistical surgeon who loses the use of his hands in an accident and embarks on a journey of healing--only to wind up as the apprentice to a magical superbeing (Tilda Swinton, natch) in Nepal. The trippy visuals and unpredictable storyline prove these Marvel superhero movies still have plenty of originality in store for audiences. 115 minutes PG-13.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

J.K. Rowling revisits the pre-Harry Potter world of Harry Potter with this 1920s-set prequel in which wizardly writer Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) heads to New York City and accidentally loses a suitcase full of magical monsters. David Yates (who gave us Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows) directs. Colin Farrell, Zoë Kravitz, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight and Johnny Depp costar. Expect four more of these before we're done. 133 minutes PG-13.

Hell or High Water

In this modern-day Western, a divorced dad (Chris Pine) and his ex-con brother (Ben Foster) become bank robbers in order to save their family's farm in West Texas. This sets them on a collision course with dogged, soon-to-retire Texas Ranger Jeff Bridges. The tropes are familiar, but the cast is loaded with charisma and chemistry, and the film moves with the speed of a dust storm. The entertaining screenplay comes from Taylor Sheridan, who wrote the equally taut, shot-in-New-Mexico crime drama Sicario. 102 minutes R.

Live By Night

Following up on the promise of Argo and The Town, Ben Affleck writes (from the Dennis Lehane novel), directs and stars in this Prohibition Era gangster saga. It's lavishly written, mounted and photographed, but it wallows too much and too long in low-level pulp--never quite achieving the weight of Affleck's previous films. 128 minutes R.

Moana

Moana

Dwayne Johnson and Auli'i Cravalho provide the voices for this Polynesian fantasy story which comes to us courtesy of the animators at Disney. The titular Moana is a headstrong young girl who uses her navigational skills to set sail for a fabled island with the help of a legendary (if somewhat past his prime) demigod named Maui. This charming, fun musical cartoon harkens back to the glory days of The Little Mermaid. FULL REVIEW: Disney sets sail in the South Seas with a mythical new toon by Devin D. O’Leary (12/1/2016). 113 minutes PG.

Passengers

Two passengers on an interstellar ship carrying people to a distant planet for colonization find themselves unexpectedly awakened from suspended animation--90 years too early. Can they figure out what is causing the malfunction, and can they fix it in time? Also, is it possible they can fall in love with one another amid the crisis? Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence star in this sci-fi mystery/romance that squanders a rich setting by more-or-less refusing to deal with the questionable moral twist at the center of it all. 116 minutes PG-13.

Patriots Day

Mark Wahlberg reunites with writer-director pal Peter Berg (Deepwater Horizon, Lone Survivor) for this shamelessly patriotic retelling of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis' actions in the events leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the subsequent manhunt. It's an admirably workmanlike effort celebrating heroic Bostonians and effectively approximating the chaos of the situation. 133 minutes R.

Un Padre No Tan Padre

When Don Servando Villegas gets expelled from his retirement home, his younger son Francisco takes him in. Ay caramba! Sonny boy is a hippie! In Spanish with English subtitles. 97 minutes PG-13.

Underworld: Blood Wars

The fifth film in the interminable Underworld series (sixth if you count the direct-to-video animated short "Underworld: Endless War") comes to theaters in all its blue-steel-colored, wet-look-leather-wearing glory. Kate Beckinsale is back as vampiric Death Dealer Selene, waging her eternal war against the evil Lycan clan and the ... equally evil Vampire clan? Honestly, not too sure about who the good guys are supposed to be are anymore. Not to worry: there are still plenty of vampires and werewolves fighting each other with machine guns. 91 minutes R.

Why Him?

Jonah Hill helped out on the story for this foul-mouthed comedy starring his pal James Franco. Franco plays an internet billionaire who's about to pop the question to his girlfriend over the holidays. Unfortunately, her dad (Bryan Cranston) takes an instant dislike to the crass, inappropriate man-boy, setting off a war between the menfolk. 111 minutes R.
