Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

Based on a graphic novel by co-director Alberto Vázquez, this dark, animated fairy tale from Spain won the Goya Award for Best Animated Feature. Stranded on an island in a cruel, post-apocalyptic world, a cute, anthropomorphic mouse, her mute avian boyfriend and their teenage friends hatch a dangerous plan to escape in hopes of finding a better life. Home invasion robbery, glue-sniffing rat gangs and assorted demonic tormentors follow, proving that this macabre-yet-good-hearted cartoon is not for children. 76 minutes Unrated.

Call Me By Your Name

Call Me By Your Name

Brit James Ivory (Howards End, Remains of the Day, A Room With a View) adapts the book from André Aciman, and Italian Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) directs this lush, louche and incredibly languid coming-of-age love story. Teenage Elio (Timothée Chalamet) is an upper-upper middle-class Jewish-American kid lazing around his academic parents' Italian villa for the summer. Twentysomething Oliver (Armie Hammer) is the Adonis-like graduate student who shows up to push papers for Elio's dad. The two lol about the pool, eating ripe fruit and glaring at each other under hooded eyelids. After an hour or so of that, Elio gets around to confessing that he might be gay and might be attracted to Oliver. Lots of walks through the picturesque Italian countryside and a few incredibly academic debates ensue. Also, some sex. A tiny bit anyway. FULL REVIEW: Languid romance withers under the Tuscan sun by Devin D. O’Leary (1/11/2018). 132 minutes R. (Opens Saturday 1/13)

The Commuter

Liam Neeson does his now standard "quiet, unassuming old dude kicks some serious ass" thing in this transportation-based thriller. Neeson reunites with Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop) for ... well, Non-Stop on a train instead of a plane. Seems that Neeson's unassuming businessman gets caught up in a murderous criminal conspiracy during his regular commute home. Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Sam Neill and Elizabeth McGovern are along for the ride. 104 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 1/11)

Condorito: The Movie

This computer-animated Chilean cartoon finds a soccer-playing condor boy (just roll with it) embarking on a "hilarious adventure" to save the planet from evil alien invaders. It's based on a popular Chilean comic strip which has been around since 1949. In Spanish with English subtitles. 88 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 1/12)

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

There's no appreciable difference between the first Harry Potter film and this wonderful follow-up from 2001. Still, this one seems to stand on its own a bit better. Filled with endless visual surprises, Chamber of Secrets is like a bottomless box of candy that just keeps opening and opening, revealing further treats, delights and wonders. 161 minutes PG.

Howl's Moving Castle

Hayao Miyazaki adapts Diana Wynne Jones' young adult novel for this 2004 animated masterpiece. This fabulous fairy tale concerns a young girl, cursed to live as an old woman, who takes up residence in the titular dwelling of a handsome wizard in hopes of finding a cure. The story, mixing fantasy and technology, is more intuitive than logical; but fans (both young and old) of otherworldly drama will be duly impressed. 119 minutes PG. (Monday 1/15)

Jane

The life and work of renowned primatologist Jane Goodall is examined in this moving documentary from Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture, Cobain: Montage of Heck). National Geographic handed the filmmaker 140 hours worth of previously unseen 16mm color film shot in the '60s, detailing the work Goodall did studying wild chimpanzees in Africa, resulting in an elucidating, up-close look at her pioneering research. Philip Glass provides the emotional score. 90 minutes PG. (Opens Monday 1/15)

Mary and the Witch's Flower

This anime feature directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (a key animator on such Studio Ghibli classics as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Ponyo) is based on author Mary Stewart's kids' book The Little Broomstick. It tells the story of a little girl name Mary who finds a mysterious flower that grants her the power to become a witch—but only for one night. In Japanese with English subtitles. 102 minutes PG.

The Post

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in this incredibly timely (if a bit self-congratulatory) drama about journalists at the Washington Post and the New York Times struggling with the decision to publish the Pentagon Papers, detailing the controversial involvement of the United States government in the Vietnam War. It's a pressure cooker of a literary thriller about hard journalism and value of the Fourth Estate in a democratic society that still imagines itself a Capra-esque game changer. 115 minutes PG-13.

As is usually the case with this kind of thing, she crosses paths with an innocent kid, awakening her maternal instincts and causing her to turn against her criminal employers. R. (Opens Friday 1/12)

She's All That

Late '90s teens might remember this Freddie Prinze Jr./Rachel Leigh Cook rom-com about a high school jock who bets he can turn an unattractive girl into the school's prom queen. Spoiler alert: He falls in love with her. Looking back, it's kinda hard to believe Freddie Prinze Jr. was actually a thing (see for reference: Down to You, Boys and Girls, Head Over Heels, Summer Catch). 95 minutes PG-13.

Song of Granite

This black-and-white documentary looks at the enigmatic and complex figure of Joe Heaney, one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (known as sean nós or "old style"). Raised in the west of Ireland, Heaney moved to London in the early '50s and became a chieftain of the local folk music scene—but at great personal cost. Featuring performances from Colm Seoighe, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Jaren Cerf, Lisa O'Neill, Damien Dempsey, and sean nós singers Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin. 104 minutes Unrated.

John Huston's 1948 classic about gold and greed returns to the silver screen.

All the Money in the World

Director Ridley Scott tackles the true story of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III, who was kidnapped and held for ransom in 1973. While his parents (played here by Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg) go crazy trying to find him, his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) refuses to cough up one red cent. And yes, this is the film that Kevin Spacey got edited out of. His last-second replacement, Mr. Plummer, was just nominated for a Golden Globe. Sucks to be, Kev. 132 minutes R.

Darkest Hour

Gary Oldman transforms himself for this historical biopic about British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The film—directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Anna Karenina)—covers much the same early World War II time period as Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. Despite its wartime setting, the film is really a testament to the power of words and the ability of great speakers (not to mention great actors) to inspire others. 125 minutes PG-13.

The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist

James Franco directs and stars in this biographical comedy about Tommy Wiseau, the inscrutable (and questionably talented) writer-director behind "the Citizen Kane of bad movies," 2003's ridiculous cult hit The Room. Franco's baby bro Dave Franco co-stars as Greg Sestero, the lousy but determined San Francisco actor who befriends Wiseau. After a move to Los Angeles in search of fame and fortune proves fruitless, the two deluded dreamers talk each other into making their own independent film. Aside from Franco's hilariously deadpan imitation of the oddball Wiseau, the film features a surprisingly affecting depiction of the allure that Hollywood holds and the lengths some people will go to achieve it. FULL REVIEW: Actor-director James Franco transforms into actor-director Tommy Wiseau by Devin D. O’Leary (12/7/2017). 103 minutes R.

Downsizing

Alexander Payne (Election, Sideways, Nebraska, The Descendents) steps out of his comfort zone to write and direct this Charlie Kaufman-esque sci-fi satire about an economically depressed near-future world in which people (Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig, in this case) volunteer to be shrunk down to mere inches to increase their personal wealth. Naturally, things don't work out for our protagonists quite the way they expected, forcing them to reevaluate their (tiny) lives. 135 minutes R.

John Cena, Kate McKinnon, Bobby Cannavale, Gina Rodriquez and Peyton Manning provide the voices for this CGI toon about a kindhearted, flower-sniffing bull, who is mistaken for a dangerous beast and taken from his idyllic home.

Insidious: The Last Key

It's a general rule of thumb: Beware any horror movie with the words "Last" or "Final" in the title. They're probably lying. In any case, here's the fourth film in the ghostly Insidious franchise. Chronologically speaking, this one takes place after Insidious 3, but before Insidious and Insidious 2. It concentrates on demonologist Elise Rainier (cult actress Lin Shaye) as she goes to New Mexico to investigate the haunted house she grew up in. 103 minutes PG-13.

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.

Justice League

Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg (and maybe a certain big blue Boy Scout) join forces to fight off an apocalyptic alien invasion. It's another incremental improvement in the DC/Warner Bros. brand, but it's punishingly frenetic, the CGI is on overload and everybody looks like an overdesigned basketball shoe. (This last one is particularly annoying in the wake of Thor: Raganrok, which embraced the hell out of legendary artist Jack Kirby's visual style. Justice League borrows a lot of Kirby characters and storylines, but none of his trademark look.) 121 minutes PG-13.

Anna Kendrick, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson return as the now-former members of a college a cappella chorus who reunite to go on a USO tour (which is also a competition, because everything has to be a singing competition these days). If you're some insane fan of Pentatonix, "Glee" and "American Idol," and can't get enough a cappella mashups of Britney Spears songs, this musical comedy is aimed squarely at you. 93 minutes PG-13.

The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water

Mexican horror auteur Guillermo del Toro (Cronos, The Devil's Backbone, Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) co-writes and directs this loving update of postwar monster movies. Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky) stars as a mute cleaning woman working in a top-secret government lab, circa 1962. There, she meets a similarly voiceless amphibian man (played by famed man-in-a-rubber-suit actor Doug Jones). She befriends him, tries to free him and eventually falls in love with him. This adult-oriented, mid-century modern fairy tale about love and xenophobia is gorgeous, timely and filled with humid sexuality.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Writer-director Rian Johnson (of cult hits Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper) takes over the reins for this follow-up to J.J. Abrams' energetic-but-hidebound 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now that the setup is out of the way, "Force sensitive" young warrior Rey (Daisy Ridley) has hunted down Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and is looking for a little training. But is the now-cynical Jedi willing to accept a disciple? And will Rey stick around or run off just like Luke did, looking for revenge against emotionally unstable villain Kylo Ren (Adam Driver)? This epic, unexpected outing heads in directions few fans saw coming—leaving some to grouse and others to rejoice. Frankly, its break with tradition along with its mixture of sharp character drama and outsized action makes it this a Star Wars for the new millennium. 152 minutes PG-13.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Martin McDonagh (who gave us the fine In Bruges) writes and directs this brilliant, bitter crime dramedy. Frances McDormand guarantees herself an Oscar nomination as Mildred, a permanently angry divorcée whose teenage daughter was raped and murdered. With no progress on the case in the last seven months, mom erects three billboards castigating the popular local police chief (Woody Harrelson) for his inaction. This sets off a chain of ugly repercussions in their tiny community. There are bursts of fine character-based humor (particularly from Sam Rockwell as a dimwitted police officer), but the overarching tone is one of ordinary, well-meaning people trying to do the right thing but ending up doing the exact wrong thing. FULL REVIEW: Crime doesn’t pay and neither does justice in pitch perfect comedy-drama by Devin D. O’Leary (11/30/2017). 115 minutes R.

A Bad Moms Christmas

Back in 2016 Bad Moms became a runaway raunchy hit, grossing more than $100 million on a tiny $20 million budget. So here's the sequel. Overworked, under-appreciated Mila Kunis, Katheryn Hahn and Kristen Bell are back. The joke this time around is that their overbearing mothers (Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski and Cheryl Hines) are visiting for the holidays. Sure, it's a standard sitcom setup. But at least there's "crude sexual content and language throughout." R.

Blade Runner 2049

Some 35 years after Ridley Scott's Philip K. Dick adaptation hit theaters on its way to becoming a cult classic, the official sequel gets underway. This time around a young LAPD replicant hunter (Ryan Gosling) gets caught in a cover-up when he discovers a long-buried secret involving legendary blade runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for more than three decades. Hampton Fancher, who penned the original, contributes the screenplay. Denis Villeneuve (who gave us last year's spectacular Arrival) takes over for Scott in the director's chair. This gorgeous sci-fi rumination is long, slow and very moody—but it dovetails perfectly with the original. 163 minutes R.

Bombastic writer-producer Dean Devlin (Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla) turns writer-director so he can mash up the last 15 years' worth of disaster flicks into one overstuffed apocalypse. Seems that, in the near future, mankind has developed a series of satellites that can control the weather. But when the tech gets hacked (unleashing tsunamis, tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, you name it), it's up to super-genius Gerard Butler to save the Earth.

Jigsaw

You can argue all you want over whom the most indestructible movie boogieman is: Jason Voorhees or Freddy Krueger or Michael Myers. Just keep in mind that John Kramer (a.k.a. Jigsaw) croaked three films into his eponymous slasher series. And yet he's managed to rack up an impressive postmortem kill count in four additional films. Now there's a fifth. It's been 10 years since Jigsaw died, and police are looking into a killer using suspiciously similar Rube Goldberg-esque contraptions to murder people. 91 minutes R.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

With Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel/Disney proved it could make a wildly entertaining crowdpleaser out of their most obscure properties. With this animated follow-up to The LEGO Batman Movie, LEGO/Warner Bros. does exactly the same thing. This toy-based feature is much funnier and more inventive than you're thinking. Dave Franco voices Lloyd, a haplessly unpopular high schooler—mostly because his absentee father is Lord Garmadon (Justin Theroux, obviously having a ball), a monstrous warlord who spends every single day trying to conquer and/or destroy peaceful Ninjago City. Luckily, Lloyd is a member of a "Power Rangers"-esque team of superpowered teens who defend the city with their giant robots. But can Lloyd find the strength to defeat his own dad? 101 minutes PG.
