New releases

(Updated Thursday, July 20)

Dunkirk (Jasper 8 Theatres)

Christopher Nolan’s faithful and deeply respectful retelling of one of the most pivotal battles in World War II is a gripping, deeply involving and unforgettable film that ranks among the best war movies of the decade. (War drama, PG-13, 1 hr. 46 min.)


Girls Trip (Jasper 8 Theatres)

Tiffany Haddish, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina King are consistently likable as former college best friends reuniting at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. Their actions aren’t always completely believable, but even in their worst moments, their humanity shines through. (Comedy, R, 2 hrs. 2 min.)


Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (Jasper 8 Theatres)

As special operatives in the 28th century, Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan are so wooden they could have floated near the Titanic long enough to save Rose AND Jack. This pop sci-fi epic is an excruciatingly repetitive, sparsely plotted, slow-witted, weird-for-the-sake-of-being-weird bomb. (Sci-fi adventure, PG-13, 2 hrs. 17 min.)
