NEW THIS WEEK: FIRST MAN, THE HATE U GIVE, AND MORE

BOLDLY GOING

 

This week’s protagonists are on a mission, whether for discovery, for equality, or for the safety of the United Kingdom.

 

 

One small step for Ryan Gosling, one giant leap for cinema. With groundbreaking special effects and moving performances, First Man brings Neal Armstrong’s historic walk on the moon to fully-realized lunar life.

 

After witnessing the police shooting of her best friend, one teenager has no choice but to find her voice. Based on the hit 2017 novel, The Hate U Give is a moving, confident narrative ripped from today’s headlines.

 

Watch lead actor Amandla Stenberg speak about her connection to the source material in the clip above.

 

 

You can’t keep a good(ish) spy down. In a world of cyber-terrorists, virtual reality, and smartphones (gasp!), England’s least modern man-of-mystery has some catching up to do in Johnny English Strikes Again.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

It’s all fun and games until everyone gets hurt. In a Halloween theme park filled with pretend ghosts, goblins, and ghouls, one very real killer is out for some very real blood. Welcome to Hell Fest.

 

 

 

Growing up is hard, even in the Mid90s. Watch budding skater Stevie get a crash course in friendship, family, parties, pain, and more in the street-smart slice-of-life from writer-director Jonah Hill.
