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. (Opens Thursday 5/18)

The Dinner

This darkly comic indie thriller/social satire, based on the novel by Herman Koch, consists of one increasingly uncomfortable meal at a fancy eatery. Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Steve Coogan and Rebecca Hall star as frenemy couples on a double dinner date. As the night meal goes on and secrets slip out, it changes from a class-based comedy to nasty psychological thriller. Flashback alleviate some of the staginess of it all--but add to the narrative muddle. 120 minutes R. (Opens Friday 5/5)

Beside the body lies a diary that documents a journey of starvation and the loss of sanity--but told with poignance, beauty, humor and spirituality.

Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer

Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer

Richard Gere stretches his acting talents to play a desperate, aging Jewish hustler trying to peddle influence by introducing businessmen he doesn't really know to power-brokers he's never really met. One day, against all odds, he bets on the right horse--befriending a lowly Israeli politician (Lior Ashkenazi) who eventually finds himself catapulted to the position of Prime Minister. Suddenly, our man Norman is got the power and influence he's always dreamed of. But it's a short ride, as the title suggests. Gere crafts a memorable character, and filmmaker Joseph Cedar (Beaufort) provides some sharp dialogue--but the dense plot gets convoluted, moving from New York to Tel Aviv and sliding into political thriller territory. FULL REVIEW: Richard Gere commits to character in influence-peddling drama by Devin D. O’Leary (5/18/2017). 117 minutes R. (Opens Friday 5/19)

Slack Bay

This bizarro slapstick comedy (set in 1910) centers on the eccentric and bourgeois Van Peteghem family (including Juliette Binoche, Fabrice Luchini and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), who have settled in for another summer in their seaside villa. But their leisurely annual rhythm is interrupted by the arrival of two bumbling police inspectors investigating a string of tourist disappearances. Alternately cartoonish and macabre, this one needs a particular audience to appreciate its oddball charms. In French with English subtitles. 122 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 5/19)

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

Gear up for the premiere of "Twin Peaks: The Return" on Showtime with a screening of David Lynch's 1992 prequel to the original series. Lynch says this movie is key to understanding the new series. "Understanding" being a relative word. Actually--barring the weird preamble with Chis Isaak, Kiefer Sutherland and David Bowie as FBI agents--this noirish horror story is one of Lynch's most consistent visions. Sheryl Lee headlines as Laura Palmer, the doomed high schooler whose brutal murder kicks off the TV series. 135 minutes R. (Opens Tuesday 5/23)

The Boss Baby

In this oddly conceived CGI toon from DreamWorks Animation, a suit-wearing, briefcase-carrying infant (voiced by Alec Baldwin) is assigned by Baby Corp. to infiltrate the household of prepubescent Tim (Miles Christopher Bakshi) in order to spy on his parents. Seems Mom and Dad work for Puppy Co., and the company's evil CEO has a secret plot to replace people's love for babies with a love for puppies, and ... Seriously, this film makes very little sense.

The Case For Christ

This faith-based drama is inspired by the true story of Lee Strobel, an award-winning journalist and avowed atheist (played here by Mike Vogel of Cloverfield) who applies his journalistic skills to disproving the newfound Christian faith of his wife (Erika Christensen). Spoiler alert: He fails. If you're not already a Christian apologist, then Strobel's quest (which basically involves interviewing a bunch of evangelical theologists) isn't going to constitute any sort of persuasive argument. 112 minutes PG-13.

There, she uncovers a nefarious plot on the part of the company's seemingly kindly boss (Tom Hanks) to gather 24/7 surveillance information on every person in the world.

She ends up back in her dinky hometown where she crosses paths with an old childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis). Lest you mistake this for a romantic comedy, our heroine soon discovers that her late-night benders correspond perfectly to the mysterious appearance of a giant monster rampaging its way through Seoul, Korea. Told you it was odd. 109 minutes R.

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.

How To Be A Latin Lover

Dumped after 25 years of marriage, a man who made a career out of seducing rich older women finds himself living with his estranged sister and learning to appreciate the value of family. This Spanglish comedy stars Mexican icon Eugenio Derbez (Instructions Not Included), south-of-the-border import Salma Hayek and American actors Rob Lowe, Kristen Bell, Michel Cera and Rob Corddry.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Writer-director Guy Ritchie messed mercilessly with the traditional story of Sherlock Holmes in those two movies starring Robert Downey Jr.--but they still managed to be fun action flicks. So it's no big surprise to see him revamping the King Arthur myth in ways we've never imagined. Here, we see young Arthur (Charlie Hunnam from "Sons of Anarchy") as a con man/gangster in his pre-king days. (Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels roots are showing.) Eventually, he pulls a sword out of a stone, and we get an insane orgy of special effects that wouldn't be out of place in a Dungeons & Dragons movie. It's hip, it's cool, it's modern. It's like an MMA music video crossed with Lord of the Rings. This ain't your father's King Arthur, no siree! Ritchie really hopes you like this one, because he's planning to make five more of them. 126 minutes PG-13.

The Lost City of Z

Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller (three decent, but hardly exciting actors) star in this "true-life" drama about a British explorer who disappeared while searching for a mysterious lost city in the Amazon, circa 1920. David Grann's book of the same name was a huge best-seller, and onetime Martin Scorsese wannabe James Gray (Little Odessa, The Yards, We Own the Night) writes and directs with a newfound sense of classicism. The whole exercise feels more workmanlike than epic. But it looks beautiful in a Werner Herzog kind of way. 141 minutes PG-13.

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.

The Promise

Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Shohreh Aghdashloo and James Cromwell star in this historical drama attempting to shed light on the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Isaac plays an Armenian medical student caught in a love triangle between an Armenian-born woman raised in France (Charlotte Le Bon, The Hundred-Foot Journey) and an American journalist (Bale) during the final years of the Ottoman Empire. It's a noble and seemingly factual attempt to highlight a forgotten chapter of world history--but the film proves to be an uneasy mix of brutal war story and soapy love story. 132 minutes PG-13.

Smurfs: The Lost Village

Neil Patrick Harris and Hark Azaria gracefully bow out of this all-animated take on the Smurfs. Seems that, for this go-around, a mysterious map sends Smurfette and her tiny blue pals on a journey through the Forbidden Forest to discover "the biggest secret in Smurf history." Parents are advised to dump the kids and run. 89 minutes PG.

Snatched

Comedienne Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn (her first flick in 15 years!) star in this adventure-comedy about a woman who gets dumped by her boyfriend and drags her ultra-cautious mother along on a vacation in tropical Ecuador. Of course, it all goes wrong when they get kidnapped for ransom and have to rescue themselves. Unlike Trainwreck, Schumer didn't write this one, and it shows in the overreliance on slapstick gags. 91 minutes R.

Their Finest

Lone Sherfig (Italian For Beginners, An Education) directs this crowd--pleasing comedy/drama/romance inspired by a real-life British agency during World War II tasked with boosting morale by making optimistic propaganda films. Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans) headlines as a self-doubting London gal looking for work during the Blitzkreig. She finds it writing dialogue for propaganda shorts, working with a narcissistic actor (Bill Nighy) and falling for her fellow screenwriter (Sam Claflin from the Hunger Games films). 117 minutes R.

The Wall

Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) and wrestlin' thespian John Cena star in this small-scale war movie for director Doug Liman (Go, The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Edge of Tomorrow). It's about two American soldiers trapped by a lethal sniper with only an unsteady wall between them. That's it. It's an admirable exercise in restraint for a filmmaker, and there's a graphic verisimilitude to the gunplay. But the film--produced by Amazon Studios--is almost too microscopic for anyone's taste. It feels more like the set-up for an off-off-Broadway play. 81 minutes R.

Get Out

Get Out

Jordan Peele (of "Key and Peele" fame) writes and directs his first feature, a timely and rather subversive horror-comedy twist on The Stepford Wives. A young African-American man named Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) visits his new Caucasian girlfriend's liberal parents (Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener) in their upscale country estate. The family and their lily-white neighbors seem weirdly, condescendingly friendly. Is Chris being paranoid or is there something strange going on? Peele skillfully combines twisty thrills with savvy satire for a satisfying, action-packed genre mash-up. FULL REVIEW: Jordan Peele turns racial tension into all-out terror in timely horror-comedy by Devin D. O’Leary (3/2/2017). 103 minutes R.

Ghost in the Shell

Masamune Shirow's prototypical cyberpunk manga series (later adapted as an anime in 1995 by Momoru Oshii) goes live-action with Scarlett Johansson as a special task force police officer whose entire body has been replaced by cybertechnology. In the near future, she and her teammates hunt down a mysterious terrorist with the ability to hack into humans and control their bodies via their computer-enhanced brains. The film nails the visual aesthetic of Oshii's anime, but fails to capture the philosophical underpinnings of Shirow's manga. 106 minutes PG-13.

Fans of 2014's The LEGO Movie (and there are plenty) are, no doubt, salivating at the prospect of a spinoff concentrating on Will Arnett's hilariously self-obsessed crimefighter. This time around, Bruce Wayne finds himself dealing with a wave of criminals in Gotham City (including, but not limited to, Zach Galifianakis' Joker, Jenny Slate's Harley Quinn, Conan O'Brien's Riddler, Doug Benson's Bane and Billy Dee Williams' Two-Face). On top of that, our hero's learning to accept the responsibility of his recently adopted ward, Dick Grayson (Michael Cera). No, it's not as profound as its predecessor. But damned if it isn't ridiculously fast-paced fun. 104 minutes PG.

Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson and Jake Gyllenhaal are among the cast of doomed astronauts. 103 minutes R.

Logan

Hugh Jackman returns as Logan/Wolverine in this X-Men spinoff. Loosely based on the Old Man Logan comic book series by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, this brutal, bruising drama is set in a post-apocalyptic future in which mutants have all but dwindled out of existence. A not-so-well-aged Wolvie is busy hiding out in the Mexican desert and taking care of a senile Professor X (Patrick Stewart) when a mysterious preteen mutant (Dafne Keen) with a serious connection to our claw-popping hero shows up needing his help. Stripped down, bleakly imagined and properly bloody, this superpowered Western is a stark, satisfying stand-alone. 137 minutes R.

Power Rangers

TV-to-movie nostalgia hits '90s kids with this big budget reboot of the loooong-running Saban series that basically steals all its special effects from old Japanese TV shows. In it, some high school kids are infused with unique superpowers, get color-coordinated outfits and fight giant space aliens (led by Elizabeth Banks). Unfortunately, the film spends an awful lot of time dealing with angsty teenage melodrama. It's like everybody involved was too embarrassed to get out and, you know, fight those giant space aliens. When the action finally does arrive, it's fun and flashy--even though it's swamped in that "realistic" grimdark monochrome of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Seriously, Hollywood, make with the color again! 124 minutes PG-13.
