Captive State

This near-future sci-fi thriller is set 10 years after space aliens have showed up on Earth and basically taken over the planet under the guise of "peaceful unity." A cross-section of humanity, from collaborators to dissidents, is explored as one Chicago neighborhood summons up the courage to overthrow their oppressors. Among the cast is John Goodman, Vera Farmiga, Alan Ruck, D.B. Sweeney and rapper/actor Machine Gun Kelly, 109 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 3/14)

Climax

Gaspar Noé (Irreversable, Enter the Void) offers up yet another self-conscious, psychedelic rumination on violence, death, art and drugs. Set over the course of a single night, the film centers on a wildly diverse troupe of modern dancers. After practicing for three days straight at a rural dance academy (ominously socked in by snow), the dancers decide to unwind with a little party. Unfortunately, someone spikes the punch with liquid LSD. The night quickly descends into an animalistic orgy of lust and violence. For what it's worth, this alternately seductive and assaultive art house horror would fit comfortably in a double feature alongside Luca Guadagnino's dance-fueled 2018 remake of Suspiria. In English and French with English subtitles. 97 minutes R. (Opens Friday 3/15)

Five Feet Apart

From Romeo and Juliet to Love Story, teenagers have proven their affinity for people falling in love and dying young. This romantic drama, starring Cole Sprouse ( "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody," "Riverdale") and Haley Lu Richardson ("Ravenswood," Split), follows two teenagers with cystic fibrosis who meet in a hospital and fall in love. Unfortunately, thanks to their weakened immune systems, they must maintain the titular distance between them. Expect to cry. 98 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 3/14)

Made in Abyss is a popular manga/anime series about a young girl named Riko, who befriends a humanoid robot and descends into a bottomless, monster-and-treasure-filled crater in search of her long-lost mother. This feature film version re-imagines the first eight episodes of the anime series as a single, otherworldly adventure.

No Manches Frida 2

The 2016 Spanish language hit No Manches Frida followed a semi-smooth ex-con trying to recover some hidden loot from a previous bank robbery—by posing as a substitute teacher in the high school where the money is now stuck. In this equally silly sequel, our seemingly reformed criminal (Omar Chaparro) is getting his wedding called off by nerdy-but-hot teacher Lucy (Martha Higareda) and fighting to save the rundown school from closure. 102 minutes R.

Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy

Debate continues over the credibility of the Bible. Many scholars wonder if the Book of Exodus is Moses' first-hand account or if it was written 1,000 years later. But don't worry: This faith-based "documentary" confirms that the Bible is nothing less than the direct, divinely inspired word of God. It comes to us from the "award-winning" (Best Editing, Best Cinematography and Best Sound at the 2014 ReelHeART International Film Festival) director of Patterns of Evidence: Exodus—which didn't exactly jibe with mainstream Egyptology. 140 minutes Unrated.

“Happy little clouds!”

Ruben Brandt, Collector

Hungarian filmmaker Milorad Krstic turns the Hitchcockian heist caper genre into an animated, art-house wonder. Famed psychotherapist Ruben Brandt is suffering from nightmares in which figures from famous works of art attack him. His solution: recruit some of his patients, a pack of troubled but kindhearted criminals, to steal the haunting artworks—Botticelli to Warhol—from museums around the globe. The result is a wildly visual, "in joke"-laced romp that does for art history what Who Killed Roger Rabbit did for classic cartoons. FULL REVIEW: Animated film folds art history lessons into Hitchcock-style thriller by Devin D. O’Leary (3/14/2019). 96 minutes R. (Opens Friday 3/15)

To Dust

Grieving from the recent death of his wife, Hasidic Cantor Shmuel (Géza Rohrïg) decides that—in order to move on—he must understand the science behind the decomposition process of his wife's body. To help, he tracks down Albert (Matthew Broderick), a community-college biology professor willing to give informal science lessons. The duo's macabre exploration results in an amusingly blasphemous, painfully honest look at life, death and religion. 105 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 3/15)

The Big Lebowski (1998)

Jeff Bridges is a pot-smoking bowler just looking to replace his beloved rug after he's mistaken for a reclusive millionaire by some vengeful nihilists. These things happen. This anarchic 1998 comedy is one of the Coen brothers' most loved cult hits. And deservedly so. 117 minutes R.

Mean Girls (2004)

"Saturday Night Live" anchorwoman Tina Fey pens her first feature film, a tween-age comedy about a young high school girl (Lindsay Lohan, at the height of her fame) who hooks up with her school's hottest clique, but soon finds out popularity isn't all it's cracked up to be. It's no Heathers, but there are many good moments of satire and social criticism in this pleasantly nasty payback flick. 97 minutes

The Quiet Man (1952)

Roughhousing its way into theaters just in time for St. Patty's Day is director John Ford's scrap-happy romantic classic starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. It tells the story of a retired American boxer who returns to the village of his birth and finds love (and one hell of a fistfight). Needless to say, O'Hara's Irish accent is more convincing than the Duke's—but this is a passionate, robust, entertaining romantic comedy any way you slice it. 129 minutes Unrated.

Road House (1989)

This is alternately Patrick Swayze's best and silliest silliest movie. In this action drama, a tough bouncer (Swayze, of course) is hired to tame a rough roadside bar in rural Missouri. Sam Elliott is the wise old bouncer mentor. Kelly Lynch is the girl Swayze sleeps with. Somehow, it's a more entertaining film now than it was back in 1989. 114 minutes R.

Wayne's World (1992)

Slackers/rockers Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey) go to extreme lengths to promote their cruddy public access show. This "Saturday Night Live" spin-off is one of the funnier "SNL" efforts. Be sure to sing along with "Bohemian Rhapsody"—now, more than ever. 95 minutes PG.

Alita: Battle Angel

Yukito Kishiro's action-packed cyberpunk manga/anime series Battle Angel Alita gets the live-action treatment courtesy of director Robert Rodriguez (Once Upon a Time in Mexico, From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City) and writer-producer James Cameron (Aliens, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Titanic). A severely damaged android in the form of a young girl (Rosa Salazar) is found in a scrapheap by a rogue scientist (Christoph Waltz). He rebuilds her, but she has no memory of her past or the post-apocalyptic world in which she finds herself. Nonetheless, she finds work as a bounty hunter and in the deadly sport of "Motorball." It's quite the special effects extravaganza, but Cameron's script bodges together a few too many storylines and genres. 122 minutes PG-13.

Arctic

With icy nature closing in, he must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his makeshift camp in hopes of rescue or embark on a deadly trek through the unknown. Amazingly, Brazilian YouTube sensation Joe Penna strips away every ounce of narrative and visual flash for his writing-directing debut, producing a near-silent, bare bones anti-drama. 98 minutes PG-13.

Birds of Passage

From Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra (makers of the mystical-realist epic Embrace of the Serpent) comes this vivid and gritty saga about life far south of the border. Young Wayúu native Rapayet (José Martinez) marries into a traditional ethnic family. Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture's values, however, our antihero is drawn into Colombia's burgeoning drug trade in the '70s. Ignoring ancient omens—not to mention the disapproval of his tribe's matriarch (the commanding Carmiña Martínez)—Rapayet and his family are soon caught up in a sprawling struggle involving eroding tradition, material wealth and blood feuds. Think The Godfather with a traditional Latin American backbeat. 125 minutes Unrated.

But is Captain Marvel (Brie Larson from Room) really an alien, or do her roots lie far closer to Earth? 124 minutes PG-13.

There she meets up with an ex-lover, with whom she shares a number of long-buried secrets. At some point, her daughter goes missing, a crime that this beautiful but meandering character drama is in no real hurry to solve. Iranian writer-director Asghar Farhadi (About Elly, The Salesman, A Separation) knows his way around a sociological melodrama—but this one seems like a second generation reproduction of his earlier work.

Now all the cats are out of the bag, and Shyamalan is free to complete the trilogy by getting his upstanding superhero (Bruce Willis) and his two supervillains (Samuel L.

Aquaman

Jason Mamoa reprises his role as the aquatic avenger from Justice League in this shallow but energetic sci-fi fantasy. Director James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring) goes big-time, big-budget with this CGI-saturated underwater epic. It's 50 percent Indiana Jones, 50 percent Star Wars and 50 percent Thor—and at two hours and 23 minutes long, it's about 50 percent too much film.
