GEMINI MAN Ang Lee hasn’t made an action film since Hulk in 2003. So I’m not sure what drew him to this film, which stars Will Smith as an aging hitman who is being targeted by a much younger clone made without his knowledge.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY This movie channels the original Charles Addams New Yorker cartoon. The art looks cool, and the trailers have been okay. But the movie posters have a bunch of bad puns that try to make the characters hip — which always sends up a red flag for me. The live action TV and film versions were pretty decent, so this movie has its work cut out.
JEXI Adam Devine stars as an urban slacker with a phone addiction. When he gets an upgrade, his new virtual assistant (Jexi, voiced by Rose Byrne) starts pushing him to aim higher in life. But when he does, she gets jealous. Hmmn, sounds a little like Spike Jonze’s Her.
MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL Angelina Jolie returns as Maleficent the once evil (but not really, just misunderstood) fairy who is fighting against evil Michelle Pfeiffer for some reason. It’s weird to think that this is kind of a sequel to the Sleeping Beauty story.
ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin) are back for round two against the zombies. At one point they end up at the Whitehouse (cue Trump satire), and they start finding new people (Rosario Dawson, Zoey Deutch, Luke Wilson, Thomas Middleditch, Avan Jogia, and Dan Aykroyd) to add to the drama/comedy.
BLACK AND BLUE Naomie Harris is a rookie cop who witnesses two corrupt cops murder some gangsters. They wound her trying to get her body cam which recorded the killings, but she escapes. She’s desperate to get to the precinct to download the video, but the bad guys are on her trail. Looks like a serviceable action film.
COUNTDOWN An app that you download will tell you how long you have left to live. Apparently, it’s attached to some evil entity that kills you when the app says your time is up. Looks laughably bad.
