Alien: Covenant

Ridley Scott steers further from the mindbending but distracting mythology of 2012's Prometheus and tries to recapture the claustrophobic horror of his 1979 original Alien. The crew of a colony ship, bound for a remote planet, stumbles across a seemingly perfect world. Unfortunately, it's the old home planet of the Engineers, the alien giants who created the space age superweapon known as the Xenomorphs. It isn't long before the crew is on the receiving end of some acid-blooded alien carnage. Like Prometheus before it, this prequel has got way too many ideas, but at least it delivers on the chestbursting thrills. Michael Fassbender, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir and Jussie Smollett are among the rather doomed cast. 122 minutes R.

Baywatch

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Zac Efron and Alexandria Daddario star in this rude 'n' crude reboot of the "classic" (not really) T and A TV series about lifeguards. This one tries to ride the coattails of the naughty 21 Jump Street reboots, but it juvenilely jumbles up a silly crime story, endless jokes about penises and the expected David Hasselhoff cameo. 116 minutes R.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

This stylized, animated comedy is based on the popular book series by Dav Pilkey. Two imaginative grade school pranksters (voiced by Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch) hypnotize their grumpy principal (Ed Helms) into thinking he's a ridiculous, underwear-clad superhero. 89 minutes PG.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Well-meaning space rogues Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) are back trying to save the galaxy. This time around, they've got the added wrinkle of unraveling Star-Lord's true parentage--in the form of an anthropomorphized planet known as Ego (played amusingly by Kurt Russell). This sequel's a bit more jokey--but it doesn't shirk on emotional detail either. You can debate whether it's better than the original or not, but you can't deny that it's pure, unadulterated summer movie fun. 136 minutes PG-13.

It Comes At Night

This grimly apocalyptic drama sheds gory horror for a lethal dose of paranoia and xenophobia. Writer-director Trey Edward Shults last gave us the ultra-indie, aged hippie dramedy Krisha--which basically starred his friends and family. He goes in a very different direction here, offering slow-burning tension and ambiguous dread. A husband (Joel Edgerton, Animal Kingdom), his wife (Carmen Ejogo, Selma) and their teenage son are hiding out at an isolated home in the woods, shotguns and gas masks at the ready. Apparently (we can only assume) the world has been devastated by some kind of viral zombie plague. But when a young family shows up on their doorstep begging for help, our protagonists' self-centered resolve is tested. This small-cast, single-set thriller is minimalist, but absorbing. It's also the "feel bad" story of the year. 97 minutes R.

Lowriders

Gabriel Chavarria ("East Los High") and Damián Bichir ("Weeds") headline this macho melodrama about a young graffiti artist caught between his father's obsession with lowrider car culture, his ex-felon brother and his need for self-expression. Amid the tightlipped father-son conflict, we get lots of images of chopped and dropped Chevys. This one probably isn't going to be a big hit in Kentucky. Or Pennsylvania. Or Maine. Or Idaho. Or Montana. 99 minutes PG-13.

Meagan Leavey

Kate Mara ("House of Cards") stars in this schmaltzy (but mostly apolitical) combination of war drama and inspirational animal tale. Picking up where 2015's Max and 2016's Army Dog dropped the bone, this mildly patriotic docudrama (inspired by a true story) follows the titular troubled young woman into the Marines, where she gets stuck cleaning out the K-9 kennels. There, she meets undisciplined German shepherd Rex. Naturally, they form an interspecies bond and are soon deployed to Iraq, where they must learn to love and trust one another. Later, when our vet returns home to the states, she fights to adopt her canine soulmate with help from Sen. Chuck Schumer. (No, really.) 116 minutes PG-13.

The Mummy

Universal is still trying to make "fetch" happen by relaunching (once again) all of its classic (read: public domain) monsters in a gigantic, interconnected "Dark Universe." (Just like Marvel's Avengers franchise ... they hope.) First out of the gate is this all-over-the-map action flick featuring Tom Cruise battling an ancient female mummy (Sofia Boutella from Star Trek Beyond) with the help of a secret, international, monster-fighting organization led by a Nick Fury-esque Dr. Jekyll (Russell Crowe). Yes, it's as silly as it sounds. But get ready for the Invisible Man, the Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, the Creature From the Black Lagoon, the Phantom of the Opera and the Hunchback of Notre Dame--coming soon to a theater near you. 110 minutes PG-13.

My Cousin Rachel

My Cousin Rachel

Based on Daphne du Maurier's 1951 throwback "romance," this Regency period costume drama finds the young master of a picturesque Cornish estate (Sam Claflin from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) meeting the beguiling widow (Rachel Weisz from The Constant Gardener) of his beloved cousin. Our protagonist suspects she may have murdered her husband--but the young lord soon finds himself falling under her quiet charm. Is she a killer or an innocent woman? This beautifully dark, faintly Gothic mystery keeps viewers guessing. FULL REVIEW: Love, marriage and maybe murder in merry olde England by Devin D. O’Leary (6/8/2017). 106 minutes PG-13.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

I think this is the fifth of Disney's Pirates movies. But I wouldn't swear to it in court. The problem being that, despite some very entertaining moments, the chaotic scripts all blend into one another. (Anyone remember what 2011's On Stranger Tides was about? Or what happened at the end of 2007's At World's End?) This time around, we've got Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow searching for the mystical trident of Poseidon. Also, a ghostly Spaniard (Javier Bardem) is trying to kill him. Also, Paul McCartney is in it. Sure, it's fun. No, it's not a coherent narrative. 129 minutes PG-13.

Wonder Woman

Warner Bros. finally gets around to tackling one of DC Comics' most famous characters. Israeli actress Gal Gadot stars as the titular Amazonian princess, whose sheltered life is ended when a World War I pilot (Chris Pine) crashlands on the Amazon's isolated island home and tells of the conflict raging in the outside world. Princess Diana (Gadot) volunteers to suit up, return the outsider and see what she can do about stopping this War to End All Wars. Believe it or not, Warner Bros. is finally getting a handle on this superhero thing--thanks, in large part, to director Patty Jenkins (Monster), who handles the character with care, intelligence and a sense of adventure. 141 minutes PG-13.
