Pacific Rim: Uprising

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity's victory against the monstrous Kaiju. Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father's legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

PG-13. Fantasy/Science Fiction. Directed by Steven S. DeKnight. 2h.

What the Internet Says

It’s also easier to engage with the humans this time, and that’s thanks largely to another star turn from Boyega, who is rapidly becoming one of the most adept leading men in Hollywood. He’s a commanding, captivating presence, whether it’s delivering a rousing speech or playfully toying with his frenemy.” – The Guardian

Our Take: Action fans will dig this adventurous and explosive sequel (the first movie was released in 2013). This action-filled and visual effects-driven journey is one you won’t want to miss!

Unsane

Sawyer Valentini (Claire Foy) relocates from Boston to Pennsylvania to escape from the man who's been stalking her for the last two years. While consulting with a therapist, Valentini unwittingly signs in for a voluntary 24-hour commitment to the Highland Creek Behavioral Center. Her stay at the facility soon gets extended when doctors and nurses begin to question her sanity. Sawyer now believes that one of the staffers is her stalker -- and she'll do whatever it takes to stay alive and fight her way out.

R. Thriller/Horror. Directed by Steven Soderbergh. 1h 38m.

What the Internet Says

“A raw, lean and abrasively effective thriller from Steven Soderbergh, which features Claire Foy as we’ve never seen her before.” – Empire

Our Take: Exhilarating and suspenseful, “Unsane” will keep you on your toes. And just when you think you know what’s really going on, you’ll second-guess yourself. We’re very, very intrigued…

Isle of Dogs

When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture. Starring Scarlett Johansson, Edward Norton, and Bill Murray.

PG-13. Stop-motion/Adventure. Directed by Wes Anderson. 1h 41m.

What the Internet Says

“Wes Anderson returns happily to animation with a Japanophilic canine adventure that is richly imagined, drily witty and, finally, barking mad.” – Variety

“Isle is an enjoyable follow-up to Anderson's masterpiece The Grand Budapest Hotel, and the director has rarely been this heartening with his fare. Fetch him some snacks because this is a good Dogs.” – USA Today

Our Take: If you are a Wes Anderson fan – this one is for you!
