13 Minutes

Oliver Hirschbiegel (Downfall, The Experiment) directs this historical drama about Georg Elser, who in 1939 attempted to assassinate Adolf Hitler by planting a bomb designed to kill Der Fuhrer during a public speech. In a tragic bit of bad timing, however, Elser missed the Nazi leader by a mere 15 minutes. After he is arrested while fleeing the country, Elser (Christian Friedel, The White Ribbon) recalls (under torture, anyway) the events that led up to the plot and his reasons for taking such drastic action. 114 minutes R.

Animal Crackers

This 1930 outing is one of the Marx Brothers' zanier films. There's a fancy party, a missing painting and a song about Captain Spaulding. But it isn't about the plot, of course. It's all about the bits. And there are some classics here: There's the Chico/Harpo "gimme a flash" routine, there's the Zeppo/Groucho "take a letter" bit, and there's a running joke (stolen from Eugene O'Neill's stage play Strange Interlude) involving Groucho's endless asides to the audience. A riot in every sense of the word. 97 minutes G. (Opens Saturday 8/12)

Annabelle: Creation

The ugly, haunted doll from Annabelle and The Conjuring gets another spinoff movie. This one reveals the doll's secret origin story--which you've all, no doubt, been clamoring for. It involves a heartbroken dollmaker, a bunch of homeless orphans, a nun or two and some sort of demon, I guess. But mostly it involves a doll in a dark bedroom turning its head and people screaming. The script is silly, but director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) conjures up a few old-fashioned, jump-out-and-go-boo! frights. 109 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 8/10)

Baby Driver

Baby Driver

Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) writes and directs this fast-paced, music-filled crime thriller which demonstrates a healthy love for the gritty car chase dramas of the 1970s (and a stylistic awe of the cracked-out Quentin Tarantino/Doug Liman/Guy Ritchie crime flicks of the '90s). Ansel Elgort (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant) stars as an obsessive young getaway driver who gets coerced into working "one last job" for nasty crime boss (Kevin Spacey) before he can ride off into the sunset with his ladylove (Lily James from "Downton Abbey" and Cinderella). Naturally, everything that can go wrong does go wrong, leaving our music-loving wheelman to put pedal to metal and escape. It's more fun than original, but it works. FULL REVIEW: Edgar Wright takes an eclectic cast on a high-speed joyride with the stereo cranked to 11 by Devin D. O’Leary (7/6/2017). 113 minutes R.

The Big Sick

Comedian Kumail Nanjiani ("Silicon Valley") and his wife wrote this unusual romantic comedy based on their own fractured path to a relationship. Nanjiani stars as a Pakistani-American dodging his old school parents' attempts to land him an arranged marriage. He meets and falls in love with the perfect (Caucasian) gal (Zoe Kazan), but she unexpectedly falls into a medical coma. Oddly enough, this causes him to meet and bond with her parents (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano). It sounds like serious stuff--and in parts it's brimming with well-earned emotions--but it's also really funny. This is about as well-written and well-acted as rom-coms get. 119 minutes R.

Cars 3

This time around Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is the old-timer, trying to prove, one last time, that he can compete against a new generation of high-tech race cars (who talk, of course). Real-life racer Darrell Waltrip contributes a voice as "Darrell Cartrip." That's funny. Is that funny? I can't tell anymore. This sentimental trip around the track is a damn sight better than the last sequel. FULL REVIEW: Sentimental and scenic, trilogy-ending sports flick cruises to the finish line by Devin D.

The Dark Tower

Stephen King's epic dark fantasy series (eight books, a few short stories and some comics) gets loosely adapted with this long-in-development flick that ended up in the lap of Danish director Nikolaj Arcel (Truth About Men, A Royal Affair). Idris Elba is a supernatural gunslinger locked in eternal battle with the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), trying to stop him from destroying the Dark Tower, a mystical object that holds all universes together. Or something like that. Basically all the books are mashed together here in an attempt to tell one quick story. Fans are likely to be disappointed. 95 minutes PG-13.

Detroit

Amid the chaos of the 1967 Detroit Riots, director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal (who worked together on The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty) zero in on the intimate true story of the Algiers Motel incident. There, three young African American men were murdered and nine others were badly beaten by members of the riot task force. John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars in this blistering, single-set look at modern history. 143 minutes R.

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.

Hey, what if the emojis on your phone were, like, real and lived in a city called, I don't know, Textopolis or something? Hah!

Speaking of which, Patrick Stewart plays the "poop" emoji. It's a bad time to be alive, people. 86 minutes PG.

A Ghost Story

Casey Affleck stars (sort of--he barely talks or shows his face) in this really odd indie drama about a guy who dies and starts haunting his house as a ghost with an ironic white sheet over his head. It's supposed to be poignant and melancholy (which it is, in the extreme), but it's also incredibly boring. Affleck basically stands around the house and stares silently at his sad wife (Rooney Mara). That's pretty much it. There are some viewers out there who will dig this film's close-mouthed, Terrence Malick-esque profundity, but it's a very limited audience. 92 minutes R.

A collection of lifelong gal-pals (Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tiffany Haddish) heads to New Orleans and the annual Essence Festival (if you're black, you may know what that is) for one last, raunchy road trip full of dancing, drinking, brawling and full-frontal nudity. (Guy nudity, mind you. Comedies don't have naked women anymore.) Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man, Scary Movie 5, Barbershop: The Next Cut) directs. R.

Kidnap

It's now an unwritten rule in Hollywood that when tough guy actors reach a certain age, they're given the option of starring in one of those Taken knock-offs in which their daughter gets kidnapped and they stop at nothing to exact bloody revenge on the kidnappers. While letting Halle Berry in on some of that sweet action isn't what you'd call original, it at least counts as some sort of gender parity. This one's been sitting on the shelf since 2014. 94 minutes R.

Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth

This down-and-dirty BBC costume drama is based on the novella Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk by Nikolai Leskov. Mesmerizing newcomer Florence Pugh stars as a young woman married off to a middle-aged coal magnate in mid-19th century England. Abandoned by her cruel husband, our heroine takes up with a lusty stablehand (musician-turned-actor Cosmo Jarvis). But when complications threaten to curtail her newfound freedom, she learns to manipulate and abuse those around her in order to get what she wants. FULL REVIEW: Impolite BBC drama is bad romance at its best by Devin D. O’Leary (8/3/2017). 89 minutes R.

Landline

Writer-director Gillian Robespierre and comedienne-actress Jenny Slate reunite after 2014's well-received Obvious Child. This family dramedy is less original and not quite as edgy, but it's got its moments. Slate stars as a women mired in a boringly conventional relationship with her fiancé (Jay Duplass). When her free-spirited teenage sister (Abby Quinn) shows up with shaky proof that their dad (John Turturro) is cheating on their mom (Edie Falco), the girls turn into amateur Nancy Drews in NYC. The nostalgia is sweet (the film is set in 1995), and the laughs are raunchy. But Robespierre doesn't yet have the storytelling skills of genre compatriots Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right), Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said) or Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale). 97 minutes R.

Lost in Paris

French actor Dominique Abel and Australian actress Fiona Gordon team up to write, direct and star in this Buster Keaton-esque slapstick romp. Gordon is a naive librarian in Paris to visit her myopic Aunt Martha. Catastrophe ensues, thanks largely to Dom (Abel), a homeless man who can't help expressing every emotion and thought that comes to mind. The film is less about story and more about an endless, inventive string of sight gags and physical humor. It's whimsical, lightweight stuff, but Abel and Gordon are a sight to behold. 83 minutes Unrated.

Maudie

Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine) and Ethan Hawke (Boyhood) star in this biopic about Maud Lewis, a crippled Nova Scotia woman who worked as a housekeeper while honing her skills as an artist. Eventually, she became a celebrated outsider artist. A mild, female variation on My Left Foot, this intimate, warmly romantic two-hander finds the leads coming together as middle-aged eccentrics in 1930s Canada. 115 minutes PG-13.

Pretty In Pink

John Hughes, king of the '80s teen comedy, was on a roll when he penned this 1986 classic. Molly Ringwald is cute personified as the poor everygirl who just wants to go to prom with rich but sensitive playboy Blane (Andrew McCarthy). But what about nerdy childhood pal/secret stalker Duckie (Jon Cryer)? Don't worry, he'll get a sitcom with Charlie Sheen when he grows up. 96 minutes PG-13.

Rough Night

In this raunchy comedy, a bunch of wild and crazy gals (Scarlett Johansson, Jillian Bell, Zoë Kravitz, Ilana Glazer, Kate McKinnon) accidentally kill the stripper they hired for a bachelorette party. (Manslaughter is funny!) They spend the rest of the wacky night dragging the body around trying to cover up their heinous crime and--you know--bonding. Think The Hangover crossed with Weekend at Bernie's. 101 minutes R.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

After the successful events of Captain America: Civil War, Columbia (who retains rights to Marvel's Spider-Man) plays nice with Disney to collaborate on this rebooted version of the web-slinging hero. (Andrew Garfield, we hardly knew ye.) Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea, The Lost City of Z) stars as high school genius/newbie superhero Peter Parker/Spider-Man, caught in a war between high-tech heavyweights Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton). 133 minutes PG-13.

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 an artificial 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 an alien conspiracy in order to save the universe (or something). 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 or the dippy, sub-"Moonlighting" love/hate banter between the leads. 137 minutes PG-13.

War for the Planet of the Apes

These recent Planet of the Apes reboots (2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and this one) have been sober, exciting and surprisingly thought-provoking. Here, ape commander Caesar (the great, CGI-covered Andy Serkis) wrestles with his own darker instincts as he battles the dwindling forces of mankind (as embodied by Woody Harrelson's blood-crazed Colonel) for the future of planet Earth. 140 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.

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.

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.
