Damsel

This quirky Western dramedy, comes to us from the Zellner brothers, makers of 2014's equally hard-to-categorize Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter. Round about 1870, an eccentric businessman (Robert Pattinson, continuing to pay indie film penance for Twilight) heads to the Wild West with a drunken preacher (David Zellner) and a miniature horse in tow. His goal is to marry Penelope (Mia Wasikowska), the love of his life. But as it turns out, she may not be exactly what he's expecting. The Zellner's play straight with all the John Ford settings and plot points, but the deadpan chuckles come from the resolutely un-iconic characters. 113 minutes R. (Opens Friday 7/13)

Despicable Me 3

Poor, misunderstood mad scientist Gru (Steve Carell) tried to go legit in the last Despicable Me movie, but this 2017 animated outing finds him fired from his job as a superspy. A timely reunion with his long-lost (and incredibly successful) twin brother has him plotting one last villainous heist (with the help of his minions, of course). 90 minutes PG.

Eating Animals

Eating Animals

Natalie Portman narrates this sustainable farming documentary, based on the book by Jonathan Safran Foer. Though it finds great fault with today's corporate factory farming industry, it isn't arguing for a wholesale shift toward plant-based diets. Full of reasonable investigations and actionable solutions, the film sees an alternative solution in ethical, environmentally responsible family farms. Though it won't please the militant vegetarians in the audience, this is less than a screed against corporate America and more a sad portrait of America’s declining agricultural heritage. FULL REVIEW: Farming documentary hopes to influence food choices by Devin D. O’Leary (7/12/2018). 94 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 7/13)

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.

Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town

In this ill-tempered, footloose comedy, a woman hitting rock bottom (Mackenzie Davis from AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire") must make her way across Los Angeles (without a car or money or friends) to crash her ex-boyfriend's engagement party. Notable video game director (that's a thing) Christian Papierniak makes his feature writing-directing debut here, providing little more than a manic chain of chaotic-comic events. But he brings a lot of showbiz friends—including Alia Shawkat, Haley Joel Osment, Carrie Coon, Lakeith Stanfield, Rob Huebel and Annie Potts—to the party. 86 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 7/13)

A Kid Like Jake

Claire Danes ("Homeland") and Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Project") star as parents coming to terms with the fact that their 4-year-old son may be transgender. Interestingly, the middle-class liberal parents come to believe that their child's "gender-expansive play" could just be the key to getting him into a fancy private pre-school. Based on Daniel Pearle's stageplay of the same name, the film compassionately explores the dilemma of defining children who are too young to properly express themselves and the pressures (positive as well as negative) parents put on kids at an early age. Still, director Silas Howard ("Transparent") directs it all like a talky sitcom. 92 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 7/13)

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. (Opens Friday 7/13)

Ponyo

From My Neighbor Totoro to Princess Mononoke to Spirited Away to Howl's Moving Castle, the release of a new animated masterpiece from Hayao Miyazaki is cause for major celebration. This 2009 cartoon fantasy centers on the adventures of a 5-year-old boy who befriends a goldfish princess name Ponyo who dreams of becoming human. This loose adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid is clearly aimed at younger audiences, but the visuals are a trippy treat for all ages. See also: Notable titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world by Jerry Cornelius (09/06/2010), Notable animated titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world by Devin D.

Revenge

From French filmmaker Coralie Fargeat comes this beautifully extreme horror thriller shot in Morocco. A young woman (Matilda Lutz) gets dragged along on her smug, married boyfriend's annual "guys' getaway." Unfortunately, our nubile heroine is soon on the receiving end of some nasty abuse and assault. Left for dead in the sun-blasted desert, she rises like a phoenix to wreak some serious, over-the-top, blood-splattered revenge in the dudes who done her wrong. Fargeat is well aware of the exploitation roots she's exploring (I Spit On Your Grave, certainly); but she updates the tropes with a subtle, searing feminist undertone. And blood. So much blood. 108 minutes R. (Opens Friday 7/13)

Skyscraper

Another week, another preposterous Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson action flick. 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. Yeah, you've seen this kinda thing before. 102 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 7/12)

They make a cute couple.

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. (Opens Friday 7/13)

Three Identical Strangers

In 1980 three complete strangers crossed paths in New York City, only to discover they were identical triplets, separated at birth. The 19-year-olds' joyous reunion catapulted them to international fame, but also unlocked an unsettling secret that had been haunting all three young men their entire lives. In unpacking its baffling, true-life conspiracy, this fascinating documentary switches moods from coincidence-driven sitcom to psychological mystery. 96 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 7/13)

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.

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.

Boundaries

Old people are so cute and crotchety. Or so movies and TV commercials would have us believe. In this indie dramedy, a middle-aged woman (Vera Farmiga) and her son are forced to drive her estranged, foul-mouthed, pot-dealing father (Christopher Plummer) across the country after he's kicked out of his nursing home. This one follows the pattern of dysfunctional family road trips, virtually to a T, leaving few clichés unturned. The cast elevates it, in moments. If only the story and jokes weren't so lazy. 104 minutes R.

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2

Foul-mouthed (and frequently ultraviolent) vigilante Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) returns for another R-rated outing. This time around, stung by tragedy, our anti-hero decides he needs a family. 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. O’Leary (5/17/2018). 119 minutes R.

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.

First Reformed

Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Hardcore) writes and directs this ham-handed melodrama-cum-thriller which remixes the "angry white man" vibe of his previous films to odd effect. Ethan Hawke is a conflicted, drunken priest at a historic church in upstate New York. More of a guide to tourists than a spiritual advisor to his shrinking congregation, he jumps at the chance to help a young parishioner (Amanda Seyfried, Mamma Mia!) with a troubled husband. Turns out the hubby's a gung-ho environmental activist who wants very much to blow something up. Weirdly, our priest listens to all the internet-derived global warming statistics and decides maybe he should blow something up. Conveniently, the person paying for his church's upcoming 200th anniversary celebration owns one of the most polluting companies in America. Also, the priest is dying of cancer. Subtle this ain't. 113 minutes R.
High Ridge

Hearts Beat Loud

Nick Offerman ("The Office") and Kiersey Clemons ("Transparent") star in this sweet-natured musical dramedy about a widowed father and his teenage daughter who form an unlikely songwriting duo in the summer before she leaves for med school. Offerman is perfect as the aging hipster dad, mourning the loss of daughter and youth. Clemons, meanwhile, is clearly coming into her own as an actress. The film is as friendly and lightweight as it sounds—but sometimes that ain't such a bad thing. 97 minutes PG-13.
High Ridge

Hereditary

An overly emotional wife, mother and artist (Toni Collette, The Sixth Sense) dreams of getting out from under the thumb of her unstable, domineering mother. 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.

Incredibles 2

After 14 years Pixar returns to the Parr family, the clan of superpowered folks who fought off enforced retirement. Now the family is thrown for a loop when mom Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) is recruited by a high-profile, Avengers-style team, leaving dad Mr. Incredible (Craig T.

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.

Against the backdrop of the burgeoning women's liberation movement, Thérèse Liotard and Valérie Mairesse play two women whose lives become intertwined after one of them helps the other obtain an abortion. A decade later they reconnect, forming a powerful friendship that endures despite the fact that they have developed very different identities. In French with English subtitles. 120 minutes Unrated.

Much-admired Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg gets the biopic treatment with this look into her life and work.

Sanju

Sanjay Dutt evidently came from a family of cinema legends in Bollywood. He became a film star in his own right, appearing in 187 Hindi films, and—according to this biopic, anyway— "saw dizzying heights and darkest depths: adulation of diehard fans, unending battles with various addictions, brushes with the underworld, prison terms, loss of loved ones, and the haunting speculation that he might or might not have been a terrorist." Ranbir Kapoor (Rockstar, Barfi!, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani) plays the famed actor. In Hindi with English subtitles. 158 minutes Unrated.

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.

Naturally, our hustler drafts him and his septuagenarian basketball squad (including Shaquille O'Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson and Lisa Leslie) to compete in a big tournament. This could be the best advertising-based entertainment since the GEICO caveman got his own sitcom on ABC (which is a thing that happened from October to November of 2007). 103 minutes PG-13.

Blockers

Three teenage girls make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night in what is essentially a reworking of every teen sex comedy since Porky's. However, by concentrating on the panicked parents (Leslie Mann, John Cena, Ike Barinholtz) scouring the town to prevent their daughters' deflowering, the film finds a fresh outlet for the raunchy outlandishness. There's all the usual sex, drugs and booze on display, but it's aimed sharply at the hypocritical (and mostly misplaced) Puritanism of the adults in the room. 102 minutes R.
