BlacKkKlansman

Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing) directs this punchy, in-your-face mixture of playful blaxploitation action, canny comedy and true-life biography. This crazy tale of an African-American police officer (John David Washington) who goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan (and even becomes the chapter president) is actually based on a real incident in early '70s Colorado Springs. Funny, timely and loaded with unexpected style, this marks a major return to form for Lee after a decade or so of misfires. 135 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 8/9)

Blood Fest

This low-budget, gore-filled horror flick borrows a chunk of its plot from the 1991 horror-comedy Popcorn. A bunch of horror-loving teens show up at a blood-spattered, all-night film festival—only to discover the organizer has a sinister agenda and is bumping off viewers one-by-one. Can their obsessive knowledge of slasher movie clichés save them? 105 minutes R. (Opens Tuesday 8/14)

Crazy Rich Asians

Kevin Kwan's hit novel gets the romantic comedy treatment courtesy of director Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2: The Streets, Justin Beiber: Never Say Never, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Jem and the Holograms). Middle class native New Yorker Rachel (Constance Wu from "Fresh Off the Boat") heads to Singapore to meet her humble boyfriend's family. Much to her surprise, it turns out he's the scion of one of the top 10 wealthiest families in Asia and sole heir to the family's huge fortune. But what will happen when he introduces Rachel to his controlling mother and the rest of his close-knit clan during the society wedding of the year? Among the cast are Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, Ken Jeong, Awkwafina, Jimmy O. Yang and Harry Shum Jr. 120 minutes PG-13. (Opens Wednesday 8/15)

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story

A group of misfits (led by Vince Vaughn) enters a Las Vegas dodgeball tournament in order to save their beloved local gym from takover by an evil corporate fitness guru (Ben Stiller). Is there a chance we'll see a "ball in the crotch" joke? Can any movie featuring William Shatner, David Hasselhoff and Jason Bateman be anything but amusing? I think you know the answer to these and other questions. 92 minutes R. (Friday 8/10)

Dog Days

Trying to wedge itself alongside such interconnected, ensemble cast rom-coms as Love Actually and Valentine's Day is this syrupy tale of lovelorn Los Angelenos who cross paths at a local dog park. Nina Dobrev, Adam Pally, Laura Lapkus, Eva Longoria, Thomas Lennon and Tig Notaro are among our would-be romantic couples. Ken Marino (of cult comedy troupe The State) directs. His wife, Erica Oyama ("Burning Love," "The Eric Andre Show") provides the screenplay. Awww. 112 minutes PG. (Opens Wednesday 8/8)

Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendents) directed this funny, cutting 1999 comedy about a bitter high school teacher (Matthew Broderick) who becomes way too embroiled in a student body election between an overbearing overachiever (Reese Witherspoon) and a genial football player (Chris Klein). 103 minutes R.

Generation Wealth

Documentarian Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versallies) investigates the "pathologies" that have created the richest society the world has ever seen. Greenfield gets a bit distracted focusing on her own family; but the criticism of America's fetishistic love for consumer capitalism is right on point. 106 minutes R. (Opens Friday 8/10)

Grave of the Fireflies

This animated historical drama from Japan's Studio Ghibli (My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke) could be the most depressing kids' film ever made. It's both gorgeous and haunting to watch. The story follows two small children, left homeless and orphaned by the Allied firebombing in World War II, who struggle to survive on the ruined streets of Kobe. First released in 1988, it remains one of the most profound antiwar films ever made. Screened in both English subtitled and English dubbed versions. 91 minutes (Opens Sunday 8/12)

The Meg

Bald bad-ass Jason Statham (The Transporter) is a deep sea rescue expert called upon to save some oceanographers trapped in an experimental sub at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Unfortunately, the rescue effort ticks off a very large, very prehistoric shark, who proceeds to deliver his best Jaws imitation. Predictable, loud and kinda silly, this Chinese-produced monster movie at least has some fun action and credible special effects.

Sixteen Candles

This teen classic is one of John Hughes' Holy Trinity (Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club), chronicling the trials and tribulations of high school life in the new wave-filled '80s. Molly Ringwald is the cute teen whose birthday gets forgotten in the mad buildup to her older sister's toney wedding. Ah, 1984! When Anthony Michael Hall was still a skinny little geek. John Cusack too. Whatever happened to hunky Michael Schoeffling, though? 93 minutes PG. (Opens Tuesday 8/14)

Slender Man

The spooky-looking creepypasta internet meme that inspired at least one attempted murder finally rates his own low-budget PG-13 horror movie. In it, a group of teenage girls (led by Joey King from 2010's Ramona and Beezus) investigates the mystery of the mythical monster Slender Man after a friend of theirs goes missing. This turns out to be a bad idea. 93 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 8/9)

Srinivasa Kalyanam

This Indian drama—starring Nithiin, Prakash Raj and Raashi Khanna—highlights "the sacred bond with another human being through nuptial rituals and the sanctity of the institution of marriage." (That's according to the press copy, anyway.) It's a remake of a 1987 family drama/romance of the same name. In Telugu with English subtitles. 95 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 9811)

Summer 1993

During the titular time period, a troubled 6-year-old is shipped out of Barcelona to the countryside to live with her aunt and uncle in the wake of her mother's death. Little Frida (wonderful newcomer Laia Artigas) is given love, attention and an idyllic home—but she can't figure out how to deal with the tragedy surrounding her circumstances. Writer-director Carla Simón makes her feature debut with this gentle, semi-autobiographical drama, heading back to the actual locations she grew up on to shoot it. In Catalan with English subtitles. 97 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 8/10)

Summer of 84

This nostalgia-minded indie horror drama (from the makers of Turbo Kid!) starts out like a Spielberg movie and gets progressively darker. A bunch of small town kids on bikes spend their summer spying on a neighbor—who may or may not be a serial killer. Bad stuff happens. 105 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 8/10)

Vishwaroopam 2

The 2013 Indian action spy thriller gets both a prequel and a sequel in the same movie. Kamal Haasan returns as RAW agent Major Wisam Ahmad Kashmiri, hunting down Al-Qaeda terrorist Omar Qureshi (Rahul Bose, who's back as well). Seems that the baddies are bent on attacking New York City on this go-around. In Tamil with English subtitles. 125 minutes Unrated. (Opens Thursday 8/9)

Ant-Man and The Wasp

Marvel breaks out a sequel to its 2015 action comedy hit Ant-Man. This time around our pint-sized hero/single father (Paul Rudd) is teamed up with a no-nonsense female counterpart (Evangeline Lilly) to battle a dangerous, phase-shifting villain named Ghost. Laurence Fishburne also joins the cast as scientist Bill Foster, whom longtime comic book fans will surely recognize. 118 minutes PG-13.

Blindspotting

This ripped-from-the-headlines comedy-drama comes from hip-hop outsiders Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs. Diggs made his mark rapping his way through the roles of Thomas Jefferson and Marquis de Lafayette in Hamilton. Here, he teams up with longtime pal Casal as Collin and Miles, a pair of black-and-white best friends working for a moving company in Oakland. When Collin (an ex-con just days away from ending his probation) witnesses the late-night police shooting of a young black man, he keeps his mouth shut. This leads to the film's messy, extended rumination on race, class, gertrification and justice—much of which, believe it or not, is delivered in spoken word verse. 95 minutes R.
Century Rio

Christopher Robin

In this live-action/animated fantasy, a middle-aged Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor)—real-life star of the A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh books—finds himself going through a midlife crisis. And who should show up at his doorstep in urban London? How about the silly ol' bear himself and his pals from the Hundred Acre Wood (rendered in CGI as perfect stuffed animals come to life). 104 minutes PG.

The Darkest Minds

Hollywood tries to launch another young adult sci-fi series by mashing together X-Men and The Maze Runner. In the near future, a strange disease has wiped out 98 percent of children under age 20. The surviving 2 percent develop amazing super powers. Naturally, they're hunted and herded into internment camps by creepy government types. Just as naturally, one preternaturally talented young woman (Amandla Stenberg from The Hunger Games) must escape and lead her fellow teens in a rebellion against totalitarian government forces. It's based on Alexandra Bracken's YA series (six books and counting). 105 minutes PG-13.

Death of a Nation

Right-wing nut job Dinesh D'Souza (Obama's America, Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party) unleashes another one of this deplorable political documentaries. Hilariously, this one tries to explicitly equate the presidency of Abraham Lincoln with the presidency of Donald Trump. Purely coincidentally, in May of this year, D'Souza received a full pardon from Donald Trump for his felony count of illegal campaign contributions. 109 minutes PG-13.

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot

Gus Van Sant (Drugstore Cowboy, Good Will Hunting) directs this disarmingly sentimental true-life biopic about quadraplegic cartoonist John Callahan. After being paralyzed in a drunk driving accident, Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix, in one of his most down-to-Earth roles) heal his broken spirit with a combination of Alcoholics Anonymous and politically incorrect doodles. Drunk, foul-mouthed and frequently self-loathing, Callahan is an odd source for inspirational uplift. And yet, by accepting that 12 step programs help certain people and that black humor is a good thing, this cynicism-free portrait manages to be both amusing and emotional. Among the eclectic supporting cast is Jonah Hill, in one of the most transformative roles of his career. FULL REVIEW: True-life tale of alcoholism and cartoons is unexpectedly uplifting by Devin D. O’Leary (7/26/2018). 114 minutes R.

Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade

YouTube personality Bo Burnham writes and directs this hilarious, painful and surprisingly well-observed dramedy about an introverted middle schooler (Elsie Fischer) who tries to survive the last days of eighth grade. Among the obstacles: a uncouth single dad, a clueless classroom crush and a week spent shadowing an actual high school student. The dialogue, settings and emotions are so uncomfortably authentic this sometimes feels like an ethnographic study. Anyone who's been to school will empathize with this film's savvy, iPhone age update of the old indie film coming-of-age genre.

The First Purge

The fourth in the popular (not to mention cheap-to-make) dystopian action series is, as the title suggests, a prequel. Here, we go back in time to see how the New Founding Fathers tested out Purge Night, a 12-hour period in which all crime is legal. But the isolated community chosen to test this brutal political idea explodes when the violence of the oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized. 97 minutes R.

Workaholic hotelier Count Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) finds himself stuck on a sea cruise with his daughter (Selena Gomez), his human son-in-law (Andy Samberg) and a host of mummies, werewolves and Frankenstein monsters. Naturally, old man Drac falls in love with the ship's lovely Captain Ericka (Kathryn Hahn). Just as naturally, she turns out to be a descendent of the famed vampire killing clan, the Van Helsings.

In the Last Days of the City

A documentary filmmaker in Cairo is having difficulty finishing his film, so his friends send him footage from the cities they live in—from Baghdad to Berlin. The result is a "movie within a movie" that reads as a melancholy elegy to a fading metropolis on the edge of revolution and dissolution. In Arabic with English subtitles. 117 minutes Unrated.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Seems that troubled Isla Nublar now has an additional problem (besides all those man-eating dinosaurs on the loose). Wouldn't you know it: The entire island has been sitting on a dormant volcano this entire time, and it's now exploding. Naturally, a mix of untrustworthy mercenaries and squabbling scientists (plus dinosaur trainer Chris Pratt and operations manager Bryce Dallas Howard) head back to the island to rescue a bunch of the giant lizards before, you know, lava. What could possibly go wrong? Oh, I don't know: The exact same crap that's gone wrong in the last four films? Don't get me wrong. This trope-filled sequel is extremely exciting. But it lacks the original's sense of wonder and gets increasingly dumb—somehow ending up as a haunted house story, but with dinosaurs instead of ghosts. 128 minutes PG-13.

Leave No Trace

Writer-director Debra Granik, who gave us 2010's searing Winter's Bone, gets slightly less bleak for this contemplative backwoods drama about a homeless, PTSD-afflicted father (Ben Foster) and his 13-year-old daughter (Thomasin McKenzie) living an idyllic (if tenuous) existence squatting in a vast urban park in Portland, Ore. When authorities finally close in on them, their life of freedom is threatened—not just by a return to the ordinary world, but by the idea that there might be something more than mere survival out there for them. Suffused with regional realism, the film is never less than brutally honest—but it also never strays in its empathy for these noble but flawed characters. 108 minutes PG.

Mama Mia! Here We Go Again

In the 2008 original we got a lot of very bad karaoke versions of ABBA songs and a story about how Meryl Streep slept with so many dudes she couldn't remember who the father of her about-to-be-married daughter (Amanda Seyfried) was. In this sequel, the former bride is pregnant, grandma (Cher) shows up, and we get flashbacks to that magical summer 30 years ago when young Meryl Streep (Lily James) banged young Pierce Brosnan (Jeremy Irvine), young Stellan Skarsgard (Josh Dylan) and young Colin Firth (Hugh Skinner). Also, more ABBA songs. 108 minutes PG-13.

RBG

Much-admired Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg gets the biopic treatment with this look into her life and work. Not just a tribute to the energetic life of one tough, smart, even-tempered lady, the documentary also stands as a monument to her legacy of precedent-setting legal writing. 98 minutes PG.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

The blistering border action saga Sicario gets an over-the-top sequel with morally flexible federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) re-teaming with mysterious assassin Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro). Seems that terrorists, drug dealers, human traffickers and all manner of foreigners are conspiring to commit all sorts of cross-border evil. Naturally, it's up to Graver and Alejandro and their new "no rules" edict to draw a line in the sand. This grim, hyper-violent action flick dumps a lot of the dramatic subtlety of the original, making this the Rambo to the original's First Blood. 122 minutes R.

Here, the wrestlin' thespian plays a former military man hired as head of security for the world's tallest building (in Hong Kong). When the building catches on fire after an attack by terrorists, our hero goes to great lengths (not to mention extreme heights) to rescue his wife (Neve Campbell) and kids.

Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You

In an "alternate," present-day version of Oakland, Calif., telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield from "Atlanta" and Get Out) discovers the magical key to success is adopting a "white guy" voice (supplied by David Cross). This leads him to a bizarre corporate world of money and power—as lorded over by Armie Hammer's kooky, coke-snorting CEO. This unapologetically confrontational comedy/fantasy—a debut writing-direcing effort from rapper Boots Riley—plays like the cutting social satire of Putney Swope as filtered through the oddball lens of directors Michel Gondry (The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich). FULL REVIEW: Upward mobility gets weird in off-kilter comedy by Devin D. O’Leary (7/19/2018). 105 minutes R.

Naturally, they try to hire a director and make their own cinematic debut, but are shocked to discover they are not taken seriously as crime fighters. Like the series, it's far more gag-oriented than plot-oriented. But Nicolas Cage does get to voice his dream role as Superman. 88 minutes PG.

Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel Studios folds together characters from just about every comic book franchise it's got for one giant-sized, free-for-all brawl. When power-mad alien conquerer Thanos (Josh Brolin) tries to unite the six Infinity Gems, The Avengers, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy must join forces to stop him from using them to wipe out half the life in the universe. Anything you can say about this counts as a spoiler. It's certainly not the best entry point for the Marvel Cinematic, relying on 10 years of backstory and setup. But it is a surprising, satisfying and shockingly dark capper to this second phase of the MCU. 149 minutes PG-13.

He fast-tracks it by "adopting" a hot-headed young mutant kid (Julian Dennison from Hunt for the Wilderpeople), who is being hunted down by a pissed-off cyborg from the future (Josh Brolin). The plot is much less important than the wacky asides and rude jokes, which are amped up even from the 2016 original. FULL REVIEW: The Merc With a Mouth comes again by Devin D.

But when mom finally dies, our protagonist finds her family (distracted teenage son, seemingly autistic daughter and confused hubby Gabriel Bryne) plagued by a string of horrific tragedies. Haunted by the ghosts of Sirk, Bergman, Tarkovsky, Greenaway and Lynch, first-time filmmaker Ari Aster displays a strong visual eye and a flair for the shocking in this art house thriller—which slowly transmogrifies from dark domestic drama to pitch-black, cosmic horror. 127 minutes R.

Like the original, everything on screen is viewed through Skype, Facebook Messenger chats and various dark web sites. Unlike the original, there's no vengeful ghost—just a bunch of murdery, snuff film websites. Evidently, there are two different "twist" endings. No telling which one you'll get to see. 88 minutes R.
