New releases

(Updated Thursday, Nov. 16)


Justice League (Jasper 8 Theatres)

It doesn’t take much imagination to know what will happen when another evil creature sets out to destroy all worlds, but the fun is in seeing Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman teaming up with Ezra Miller’s Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. It’s a putting-the-band-together origins movie, executed with great fun and energy. (Action fantasy, PG-13, 1 hr. 59 min.)

Wonder (Jasper 8 Theatres)

What elevates this drama about a brave 10-year-old boy named Auggie (Jacob Tremblay), born with a genetic facial deformity, is the myriad ways in which ‘‘Wonder’’ catches us just a little off-guard and puts lumps in our throats even when Auggie is off-screen. With Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. (Drama, PG, 1 hr. 53 min.)


Also opening at Jasper 8 Theatres: "The Star."
