Metascore: 33/100 (32 reviews)
The first human born on Mars travels to Earth for the first time, experiencing the wonders of the planet through fresh eyes. He embarks on an adventure with a street smart girl to discover how he came to be.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: The youth-baiting romantic drama being referred to as The Fault in Our Mars once made its home at the crumbling studio Relativity Media, but STX Entertainment saved it from potentially gathering dust and buffed it up to resemble tentpole filmmaking even though it sports a modest budget. It could serve as solid counter-programming on a busy weekend at the box office, and if the movie can stick around for a few weeks it stands a chance of being credited as a success.

Certificate PG-13   -   Drama | Horror

Metascore: 25/100 (23 reviews)
A young woman finds herself on the receiving end of a terrifying curse that threatens to take her life in seven days.
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: 15 years after Gore Verbinski helmed The Ring and helped kickstart a J-Horror remake craze comes this second sequel that looks to also function as a reboot for the generation who probably watched the first two movies online. Pair this TV star cast and the high probability of movie-goers looking for real-world distractions and vengeance-seeking spirits just might rule the box office once again, though two hurdles are in place in the form of Split's enduring success and Super Bowl LI looming over the weekend.

Certificate PG-13   -   Adventure | Comedy | Fantasy

Metascore: 59/100 (4 reviews)
A monk and his three disciples continue on their journey to battle demons.
Director:

The Buzz: Jackie Chan's latest earned the distinction of earning the biggest first-day gross ever at the Chinese box office and the fantasy sequel has already made over $100 million at the worldwide box office. We love that Chan has, with the exception of some voice-role work, pressed pause on his Hollywood career.

Certificate PG-13   -   Documentary

Metascore: 96/100 (34 reviews)
Writer James Baldwin tells the story of race in modern America with his unfinished novel, Remember This House.
Director:
Watch Trailer Get Tickets

The Buzz: As a young aspiring writer growing up in Missouri, James Baldwin's writing gave me a new perspective of a world far beyond my reach and made me dare to think I could be an artist. Though I was quite familiar with his work, I did not know about his political activism after he returned to the United States in 1957. I have been waiting impatiently to see this award-winning documentary to learn more about Baldwin and hear his final writings from his unfinished novel, Remember this House. And with the current social climate, this film feels more important than ever. - Michelle

Certificate R   -   Comedy

Metascore: 40/100 (37 reviews)
A look at the life of an aging insult comic named Jack Burke.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: From the thought of Robert De Niro in custom-fit role to the supporting cast, all the components are here for a potential sleeper hit, but this comedy from Taylor Hackford has received some of the most brutal reviews this side of Monster Trucks, another one of this week's releases. It's a De Niro passion project that was guided by the hands of serious Hollywood vets, but it seems a barrage of crass jokes undermines fine acting and direction.

Certificate PG   -   Animation | Action | Adventure | Comedy | Family | Fantasy

Metascore: 75/100 (48 reviews)
A cooler-than-ever Bruce Wayne must deal with the usual suspects as they plan to rule Gotham City, while discovering that he has accidentally adopted a teenage orphan who wishes to become his sidekick.
Director:
Watch Trailer Get Tickets

The Buzz: Mainly we're interested in seeing Batman forced with an ultimatum to loosen up a bit as Robin is introduced to the LEGOverse. Despite the Caped Crusader's global popularity, he will need to channel his inner Emmet if he wants to perform as well as The LEGO Movie.

Certificate R   -   Drama | Romance

Metascore: 33/100 (39 reviews)
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her.
Director:
Watch Trailer Get Tickets

The Buzz: I have zero familiarity with the novels, but Darker seems like a much more interesting movie than the original since Kim Basinger plays Elena Lincoln, the Grey family friend who wound up deflowering young Christian. Too bad you couldn't take the trio of Elena, Christian, and Anastasia Steele out of the dreary Northwest setting and deposit them an environment that's as steamy as their group dynamic. Reports indicate there's much less audience interest in Darker than its predecessor, which would be a shock to the overall franchise.

Certificate R   -   Action | Crime | Thriller

Metascore: 75/100 (43 reviews)
After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.
Director:
Watch Trailer Get Tickets

The Buzz: Keanu Reeves returns to dispatch of more baddies in both stylish and gruesome ways. John Wick had everything I wanted in an action movie: wide-frame, super intricate, non-stop to the point of fatigue action and fantastical world-building. John Wick: Chapter 2 looks to double down on the goodness of the first, giving us an expanded look inside the underworld of assassins that Wick exists in, and a promise of bigger and crazier stunts and fight scenes. Bonus for the the Neo/Morpheus reunion with Laurence Fishburne appearing as the mysterious Bowery King. I'm looking forward to seeing this one on the biggest screen possible. - Vanessa

Jolly is a clumsy lawyer who is faced with representing the most critical court case of his career.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: In this sequel to the National Award Winner for Best Feature Film, a new all-star cast revisits the concept of a small-time lawyer who lands in big-time trouble. Akshay Kumar and Huma Qureshi star, with Arshad Warsi, who played the lead role in the original, appearing in a supporting role. The director of both Jolly LLB movies, Subhash Kapoor, also created the satirical dramedy Phas Gaye Re Obama.

Certificate PG-13   -   Biography | Drama | Romance

Metascore: 65/100 (41 reviews)
Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana causes an international stir when he marries a white woman from London in the late 1940s.
Director:
Watch Trailer Get Tickets

The Buzz: Belle director Amma Asante returns with a historical drama that has an awards sheen but is tethered to the ground by a direct, no-frills approach to storytelling. As you can imagine, the entire project is held up by Oyelowo and Pike's on-screen chemistry.

Certificate Unrated   -   Documentary

Metascore: 79/100 (21 reviews)
A profile of an ancient city and its unique people, seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the Cat.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: This Turkish documentary, the debut feature for director Ceyda Torun, turns the cameras on a group of stray cats as they amble around their customary haunts in Istanbul. While the film indeed exposes the day-to-day goings-on of felines, each with a distinct character, what ultimately ends up on screen appears to be a rich portrait of a very ancient city full of equally interesting and distinct individuals. I'm looking forward to exploring Istanbul in a different way - with some stray cats as my guide. - Bret

Certificate PG-13   -   Action | Adventure | Fantasy | Thriller

Metascore: 42/100 (40 reviews)
European mercenaries searching for black powder become embroiled in the defense of the Great Wall of China against a horde of monstrous creatures.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Too bad this action/adventure/monster movie is shaping up to be one of the first Western casualties of Hollywood and China's various movie co-production pacts. Something tells us there are just too many genres at play for American audiences, who aren't used to a certain degree of spectacle and fantasy. Matt Damon will be fine if the movie bombs in the U.S. since it's sure to be a worldwide hit and he has Manchester by the Sea to his producer credit as well as a lead role in Alexander Payne's Downsizing due out later this year.

Certificate R   -   Comedy

Metascore: 37/100 (28 reviews)
When one school teacher unwittingly causes another teacher's dismissal, he is challenged to an after-school fight.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Groundbreaking filmmaking this is not, but this movie's trailer sure seems like pure escapism to me. And during a political season that seems to get more intense by the Internet minute, some on-screen hijinx is a welcome bit of respite. This comedy, pitting a well-meaning but outmatched teacher (Charlie Day) vs. a recently fired colleague (Ice Cube), remakes 1987's Three O'Clock High, only this time with faculty. I'm looking forward to a notably entertaining supporting cast, the likes of which include Kumail Nanjiani, Kym Whitley, and a thankfully vigorous Tracy Morgan, whose participation in this comedy marks his first film project since his car accident. - Bret

Certificate R   -   Drama | Fantasy | Horror | Mystery | Sci-Fi | Thriller

Metascore: 47/100 (40 reviews)
An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa's treatments are not what they seem.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: I have watched this trailer several times and although I'm still not quite sure what the film is about I am always left feeling a mix of slightly disturbed and intrigued. It's exciting to see the Gore Verbinski has teamed up once again with cinematographer Bojan Bazelli and it seems they deliver that same creepiness that they captured in The Ring. In fact, the imagery is so gorgeous, this is definitely a film I want to see on the biggest screen possible. - Michelle

Certificate R   -   Drama | History | War

Metascore: 75/100 (23 reviews)
In post-World War II Denmark, a group of young German POWs is forced to clear a beach of thousands of land mines under the watch of a Danish Sergeant who slowly learns to appreciate their plight.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Martin Zandvliet found his WWII drama nominated for the Best Foreign Language Oscar this year, but I've had my eye on his upcoming project, The Outsider, the story of an American G.I. who joins the yakuza in the wake of WWII. So I'm looking forward to Land of Mine as an introduction to Zandvliet's filmmaking style. - Arno

Certificate PG-13   -   Comedy | Romance

Metascore: 74/100 (5 reviews)
A successful and single career woman asks her co-worker to pose as her boyfriend at a family wedding back home in Mexico. Her situation gets complicated when her ex shows up at the ceremony.
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: "How to Get Away with Murder" cast member Karla Souza has appeared in Instructions Not Included and From Prada to Nada, two movies that has successfully found audiences in Mexico and the U.S., and here she gets a leading role in a familiar sounding romantic comedy that will should find a core audience.

Metascore: 74/100 (14 reviews)
The relationship between two friends deepens during an impromptu road trip.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Treeless Mountain writer/director So Yong Kim has built most of her stories around two characters trying to connect with one another, and in Lovesong we're treated to Jena Malone and Riley Keough potentially acting on their long-suppressed desire for one another. But you can count on Kim for crafting a story that doesn't feel simple, obvious, or annoying. - Arno

Certificate R   -   Drama

Metascore: 43/100 (15 reviews)
An activist gets caught up in the labor movement for farm workers in California during the 1930s.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: You have to admire James Franco's creative ambition, ability to score indie-film financing, and desire to turn every novel he's ever loved into a movie. His latest, a Steinbeck adaptation, has earned comparisons to many well-crafted but ultimately dozy Hollywood prestige pictures.

Certificate R   -   Horror

Metascore: 64/100 (15 reviews)

A young African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend's mysterious family estate.
Director:
Watch Trailer Get Tickets

The Buzz: Blissfully, comedian Jordan Peele's talent is everywhere these days, and this horror-thriller, which marks his directorial debut, demonstrates yet another facet to the funnyman's skill set. Serving also as the film's writer, Peele uses a story about an interracial couple's visit to a creepy family estate to showcase his sharp insight about contemporary conceptions and assumptions about race. I'm expecting some good chills here, mixed with some biting commentary about the way things are ... and the way things should never be (or so the movie's super compelling trailer leads me to believe). - Bret

Certificate PG-13   -   Action | Thriller

Metascore: 33/100 (10 reviews)
An American backpacker gets involved with a ring of drug smugglers as their driver, though he winds up on the run from his employers across Cologne high-speed Autobahn.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Pretty much everything written on Eran Creevy's latest action movie focuses on the behind the scenes drama the project endured as it swapped studios (from struggling Relativity Media to Open Road Films) and faced a few release date switches. Chances for success seem limited, but we have enjoyed positioning the movie as a version of Crank where Nicholas Hoult's love for Felicity Jones is the only thing that keeps him from certain death.

Certificate PG   -   Animation | Adventure | Comedy | Family | Music

Metascore: 48/100 (14 reviews)
When a radio falls from the sky into the hands of a wide-eyed Tibetan Mastiff, he leaves home to fulfill his dream of becoming a musician, setting into motion a series of completely unexpected events.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: Former Pixar storyboard artist and Toy Story 2 co-director Ash Brannon steers the first Chinese animated movie produced by an American studio; the thought here is to introduce the adaptation of the Chinese graphic novel Tibetan Rock Dog to a global audience, but we sense awareness of the movie is quite low in the U.S.

Certificate R   -   Drama | Romance | War

Metascore: 34/100 (17 reviews)
Set in 1930s Ukraine, as Stalin advances the ambitions of communists in the Kremlin, young artist Yuri battles to save his lover Natalka from the Holodomor, the death-by-starvation program that ultimately killed millions of Ukrainians.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: The little-told story of the Ukraine Genocide of 1932-33 is dramatized by workingman director George Mendeluk.

Metascore: 67/100 (8 reviews)
Set in the early 1990's, "As You Are" is the telling and retelling of a relationship between three teenagers as it traces the course of their friendship through a construction of disparate memories prompted by a police investigation.
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: This 2016 Sundance winner should find its audience in time thanks to the presence of Charlie Heaton ("Stranger Things") and Amandla Stenberg (Rue from The Hunger Games).

  -   Comedy

Metascore: 65/100 (6 reviews)
Hapless satirical songwriter Henry Phillips is lured to LA when a veteran TV producer decides to make a show about the life of a loser.
Director:
Watch Trailer

The Buzz: This project seems to function as a follow-up to the 2009 indie Punching the Clown as director Gregori Viens re-teams with his co-writer/star Henry Phillips and looks at the life of a comedian in the YouTube/social media era. A clutch of fine actors and comedians should help give the movie extended life in the streaming world.
