Digimon Adventure tri.: Future

The third and final compilation movie of the "Digimon Adventure tri." series (itself a sequel to "Digimon Adventures" and "Digimon Adventures 02") arrives in American theaters. In this Pokémon-inspired Japanese cartoon, a bunch of kids battle one another with computerized monsters. Apparently, for this go-around, a "mysterious and newly formed Digimon" is now threatening both the Real World and the Digital World. Woe is us. 120 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 9/20)

Dominion

Using drones, hidden cameras and narrators like Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara and Sia, this documentary from Chris Delforce (who did the same thing in 2014's Lucent) seeks to "expose the dark underbelly of modern agriculture, questioning the morality and validity of humankind's dominion over the animal kingdom." It also rags on the use of animals for clothing, entertainment and research. Unrated. (Opens Sunday 9/16)

The Predator

After almost a decade in hibernation (since 2010's largely forgettable Predators), everybody's favorite alien killing machine returns to Earth, thanks to writer-director Shane Black (who acted in the 1987 original before transitioning to his popular writing-directing career). Seems the only thing standing between a new Predator and the slaughter of the human race is a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher (Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Thomas Jane, Jake Busey and Yvonne Strahovski among them). 107 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 9/13)

U Turn

Indian filmmaker Pawan Kumar remakes his popular 2016 Kannada film of the same name—basically so it can be shot in Telugu and Tamil this time around. A young intern (Samantha Akkineni) working at the Times of India investigates a string of automotive accidents on a highway flyover. In the process, she uncovers something far more mysterious.

Unbroken: Path to Redemption

Producer-director Angelina Jolie's well-meaning, Oscar-nominated 2014 biopic gets a belated follow-up with this unofficial, "faith-based" sequel. The original Unbroken followed the story of USA Olympian and American Army officer Louis Zamperini, who survived 47 days in a raft when his bomber crashed into the ocean during World War II. After that he spent time in a series of Asian Prisoner of War camps. What Jolie's film left out—and this sequel makes abundantly clear—is that, following his return to America after the war, Zamperini converted to evangelical Christianity while attending one of Billy Graham's church revivals. None of the original cast returns, but evangelist preacher Will Graham does play his own grandfather. So there's that. 98 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 9/13)

Under the Tree

From Iceland comes this pitch-black comedy/family drama about a grown man accused of adultery who is forced to move back in with his parents. While he fights for custody of his 4-year-old daughter, our sad sack protagonist is gradually sucked into an ugly dispute between his parents and their neighbors over an enormous old shade tree. Thanks to a lot of pent-up feelings, this petty neighborhood squabble soon grows alarmingly violent. In Icelandic with English subtitles. 89 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 9/14)

Water Makes Us Wet

Former feminist porn actress Annie Sprinkle and her longtime partner, UC Santa Cruz art professor Beth Stephens, directed and star in this poetic, lovingly perverted documentary. With humor and sensuality, the film chronicles the "pleasures and politics" of H20 from an "ecosexual" perspective. Annie and Beth trek across California interacting with a diverse range of performance artists, biologists, water treatment plant workers, scholars and others in order to understand their relationship (sexual and otherwise) to water. Both Sprinkle and Stephens will be on hand to participate in a post-film Q&A. Advanced tickets are on sale now at Self Serve Toys. 80 minutes Unrated. (Opens Monday 9/17)

Where Hands Touch

Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Game;, Everything, Everything; The Darkest Minds) stars in this curious and perhaps ill-conceived drama which turns the Holocaust into some sort of teen romance. "Inspired by historical events," the story follows a bi-racial German girl (Stenberg) who falls in love with the son of a high-ranking SS officer. British director Amma Asante, who gave us the similarly well-meaning but bloodless Belle, has the best of intentions. But now is not really the time to say, "there were good people on both sides." 122 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 9/13)

White Boy Rick

Matthew McConaughey stars alongside newcomer Richie Merritt in this biographical crime drama about 15-year-old street hustler Richard Wershe Jr.—who became an undercover informant for the FBI during the '80s before being arrested for drug trafficking and sentenced to life in prison. Crazy story. True story. Unfortunately, nobody on screen is very sympathetic, and French director Yann Demange ('71) fails to find an enlightening narrative amid the scattered plot strands. 110 minutes (Opens Thursday 9/13)

When her famous, philandering husband (Jonathn Pryce) wins the Nobel Prize in Literature, a long-suffering wife (Glenn Close) starts to question her life choices. Close commands the screen with an incisive, emotional performance—even if the script (based on the novel by Meg Wolitzer) doesn't dig very deep beyond the film's one semi-interesting secret.

Beauty and the Beast

Disney's animated classic from 1991 got the live-action remake treatment in 2017. (Soon, all will submit!) Emma Watson from the Harry Potter series takes over as Belle, the bookish heroine who finds herself falling for a hairy prince (Dan Stevens from "Downton Abbey"). Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson are among the stars voicing various animate household objects. It looks and sounds gorgeous—but, yes, you've seen it all before. 129 minutes PG.

The Boxtrolls

From the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman comes this 2014 stop-motion-animated toon about a young orphan raised underground by cave-dwelling, trash-collecting trolls. The look is imaginative, but the story is so-so. Based on the children's novel Here Be Monsters! by Alan Snow. Ben Kingsley, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan provide voices. 97 minutes PG.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

This offbeat 1961 love story is still a classic thanks to the great acting work by George Peppard and Audrey Hepburn ... and, of course, the memorable score by Henry Mancini ... not to mention the stylish direction of Blake Edwards. We're a little sad about Mickey Rooney's work as Mr. Yunioshi, but we've all agreed to overlook that. 115 minutes Unrated.

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.

La La Land

La La Land

From director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) comes this unabashedly, unironically antiquated, Busby Berkeley-style song-and-dance musical from 2016. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling star as a wannabe actress and an unsuccessful jazz musician dreaming of stardom in cynical, modern-day Hollywood. Amid their will-they-or-won't-they romance, our two main characters engage in a string of lovingly assembled musical numbers on the streets of LA. The luminous, Technicolor Era cinematography is gorgeous and the mood is infectious. But the story seems like small potatoes. La La Land will win a lot of fans for its sheer nostalgic novelty, but it just doesn't stack up to the classic MGM musicals it so slavishly references. FULL REVIEW: Modern-day musical should garner fans despite flaws by Devin D. O’Leary (12/15/2016). 128 minutes PG-13.

Sing

When a fast-talking, showbiz-loving koala finds his once-glorious theater threatened with foreclosure, he comes up with the idea of hosting an amateur singing competition in this 2016 animated musical. Although "American Idol" would seem like slight inspiration for a family film, the script conjures up quite a bit of sympathy for its anthropomorphic pigs, hedgehogs, gorillas and mice. Amid the comedy hijinks and the rather impressive songs, we get a lot of compelling backstory, telling us what brings each of these animalistic contestants to this particular grab at glory. 108 minutes PG.

The Bookshop

Cute in description but glum in execution, this miniature painting of a foreign film is based on Isabel Coixet's novel of the same name. Emily Mortimer (Lovely & Amazing, Lars and the Real Girl) plays a middle-aged widow who dreams of opening up a book store in a picturesque coastal town in Suffolk, circa 1959. Some of the provincial local politicos, however, want to open an arts center in the building. That's about it. Bibliophiles who are also Anglophiles will be drawn in by the fine cast (including Bill Nighy and Patricia Clarkson) and pretty setting. Others will find little to keep them awake in this quiet, dusty tale about passive-aggressive real estate squabbles. 113 minutes PG.

This "faith-based" movie features cameos by former NFL star LaDainian Tomlinson and "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks. It's also based on a country music song by Rascal Flatts. If they don't make you stand up and recite the Pledge of Allegiance during the opening credits, the filmmakers are seriously underestimating their audience. 111 minutes PG.

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.
