NEW THIS WEEK: CRAZY RICH ASIANS, CHRISTOPHER ROBIN, AND MORE

THE PLACES YOU’LL GO

 

Singapore. Oakland. The Hundred Acre Wood. This week’s new releases are all about places, as well as the people, feelings, and stuffed bears that come and go.

 

 

With Hollywood finally starting to recognize the importance of representation, movie theaters are showcasing a wider variety of stories than ever before.

 

But not every story is received as warmly or widely as Crazy Rich Asians, the international love story that has made critics and audiences alike stand up and cheer. Come for the breathtaking visuals, stay for the parade of star-quality performances.

 

 

Winnie the Pooh’s humble home is never far for those in touch with their inner child.

 

Pooh, Tigger, and company’s latest grand adventure will take them to uncharted territory (modern day London) in a quest to save their old friend Christopher Robin from the scariest monster of all: adulthood.

 

 

Progress that leaves people behind is no progress at all. Blindspotting tells the story of two friends in a neighborhood that is both rapidly changing and frustratingly staying the same.

 

The film speaks for the people left in the margins by discrimination, apathy, and hate, and it speaks loudly.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

In a world with no superheroes allowed, who do you call when a giant mechanized drill is hurtling through the city?

 

Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 picks up where the beloved original left off, with the first family of heroism fighting to regain the public’s trust and support each other as a super family.

 

 

One black cop, one white cop, and one shot to take on the Klan from the inside.

 

The one and only BlacKkKlansman is turning the screws on the local white supremacists, but they won’t go down without a fight.
