Dunkirk (PG-13) Drama – Writer/director Christopher Nolan (Inception, Interstellar) tells the story of the famous British retreat in WWII. With Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh. The first legitimate contender for this year’s Best Picture Oscar.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (PG-13) SF – Luc Besson (Fifth Element, Leon the Professional) spins out another elaborate space opera based on a series of comic books. An ambitious, visually dazzling mess.
Girls Trip (R) Comedy – Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish go off on a toot in New Orleans. This one doesn’t exactly break any new ground for raunchy comedies, but it certainly delivers what fans like to see.
