A Hologram for the King
(R
)   105 minutes



In recession-ravaged 2010, American businessman Alan Clay (Tom Hanks), broke, depressed and freshly divorced, arrives in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to close what he hopes will be the deal of a lifetime. His mission: sell a state-of-the-art holographic teleconferencing system to the Saudi government. Baffled by the bureaucratic reception he gets at the so-called "Welcome Center," Alan struggles to figure out why his small IT support team is being forced to spend its days in a sweltering tent as it preps for the big presentation. Worse, because of the Saudi way of doing business, he's unclear if the king will ever show up for the long-scheduled meeting. Back in Jeddah, the stressed-out salesman winds up in the hospital, where he is treated by the beautiful and empathetic Muslim doctor Zahra Hakem (Sarita Shoudhury). As Alan gets to know his new Saudi friends better, cultural barriers break down and he begins to contemplate the possibility of a fresh start in a land where tradition and modernity meet in perplexing ways.

MPAA Rating: R for some sexuality/nudity, language and brief drug use

 

The Huntsman: Winter's War
(PG13
)   120 minutes



Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love. When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.

MPAA Rating: PG13 for fantasy action violence and some sensuality

Miles Ahead
(R
)   110 minutes



Miles Ahead is a wildly entertaining and moving exploration of one of 20th century music’s creative geniuses, Miles Davis, featuring a career-defining performance by Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda, Crash) in the title role. In the midst of a dazzling and prolific career at the forefront of modern jazz innovation, Davis virtually disappears from public view for a period of five years in the late 1970s. Alone and holed up in his home, he is beset by chronic pain from a deteriorating hip, his musical voice stifled and numbed by drugs and pain medications. When a wily music reporter, (Ewan McGregor) forces his way into Davis’ house, the two men unwittingly embark on a wild and sometimes harrowing adventure to recover a stolen tape of the musician’s latest compositions. Davis’ mercurial behavior is fueled by memories of his failed marriage to the talented and beautiful dancer Frances Taylor (Emayatzy Corinealdi).

MPAA Rating: R for strong language throughout, drug use, some sexuality/nudity and brief violence

Midnight Special
(PG13)   125 minutes



In the genre-defying thriller Midnight Special, writer/director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) proves again that he is one of the most compelling storytellers of our time. Michael Shannon (Take Shelter, 99 Homes) stars as a father who goes on the run to protect his young son, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher), and uncover the truth behind the boy’s special powers. What starts as a race from religious extremists and local law enforcement quickly escalates to a nationwide manhunt involving the highest levels of the Federal Government. Ultimately his father risks everything to protect Alton and help fulfill a destiny that could change the world forever. As supernatural as it is intimately human, the film also stars Joel Edgerton (The Gift), Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Sam Shepard.

MPAA Rating: PG13 for some violence and action

 

Eye in the Sky

)   115 minutes

Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from “capture” to “kill.” But as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year-old girl enters the kill zone, triggering an international dispute reaching the highest levels of U.S. and British government over the moral, political and personal implications of modern warfare. Also starring Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi, Jeremy Northam, Iain Glen and Phoebe Fox, Eye in the Sky is directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, Rendition, Ender’s Game).
