With the Oscars coming up on March 12th, The Belcourt and both AMC and Regal will be showcasing all the Best Picture contenders and other high-profile nominees through next weekend. Special pricing is available at certain locations.
Operation Fortune The latest Brit gangster machismo-fest from Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie finally sees the light of day after a yearlong delay to edit out its Ukrainian gangster villains. If that kind of appeasement doesn’t turn your stomach, the chance to see Jason Statham, Hugh Grant, and Aubrey Plaza in a smart and witty spy thriller is reason enough to get out to the cinema. Now playing in theaters.
RRR Fan CeleRRRation Seeing the global blockbuster from India’s Telugu film industry on a big screen is an unforgettable experience. Two freedom fighters have an old school bro out as they fight the British Raj in a nationalist epic that’s essentially The Avengers in Hamilton. Now playing at AMC Thoroughbred 20 and The Belcourt.
Creed III Michael B. Jordan pulls double duty as director and star of the latest in the Rocky franchise. A spat with a producer kept Stallone on the sidelines for this one, but Creed’s face-off against a childhood friend fresh from prison (new Ant-Man villain Jonathan Majors) pays tribute to a legacy series while never going stale. Now playing in theaters.
Children of the Corn The latest adaptation of Stephen King’s short story about bloodthirsty Midwestern minors replaces religious zealotry with environmental dogma, but also may end up accidentally becoming a searing and effective indictment of climate change extremism if critics’ outraged reactions are any indication. Now playing at AMC Thoroughbred 20 and Regal Cinemas.
Hunt Her, Kill Her A night janitor at a furniture factory fends off masked intruders in this twisty and taut indie horror. Now playing at AMC Bellevue, AMC Thoroughbred 20, and Regal Hollywood 27.
Close Middle school teasing leads to tragic consequences for two best friends living on a flower farm in rural Belgium in this Oscar nominee for best foreign film that boasts some impressive child performances hindered by contrived melodrama. Now playing at the Belcourt.
Blueback When a child befriends a blue groper while diving, she enlists her activist mom to take a stand against ocean poachers in this Australian family film starring Eric Bana and Mia Wasikowska that would make a weirdly apt eco double feature with the new Children of the Corn.
