Creed

(USA) No come­back is as leg­endary as Sylvester Stal­lone’s re­turn as Rocky Bal­boa. The re­tired box­ing star men­tors ris­ing tal­ent Ado­nis (Michael B. Jor­dan), whose late fa­ther was Rocky’s old ri­val Apollo Creed. A clas­sic story of an un­der­dog’s vic­tory paired with ex­cel­lently ex­e­cuted ac­tion packs a punch in our books.

The Dan­ish Girl

(USA) Ali­cia Vikan­der won the Best Sup­port­ing Ac­tress Os­car for her role as Dan­ish artist Gerda We­gener, whose hus­band Ei­nar (Ed­die Red­mayne) em­braces his long-sup­pressed fem­i­nin­ity and even­tu­ally at­tempts one of the first ever male-tofe­male sex re­as­sign­ment surg­eries.

The Finest Hours

(USA) This dis­as­ter film stars Chris Pine as Bernie Web­ber, a Cape Cod Coast Guard crew­man who is sent on a mis­sion to res­cue an oil tanker that has split in half dur­ing a lethal storm. Thrilling and hope­ful in the best Dis­ney-sac­cha­rine way pos­si­ble. Watch it in IMAX!

Gods of Egypt

(USA) Ger­ard But­ler is the bad­die du jour, play­ing god of dark­ness Set, who usurps the king­dom of Egypt, leav­ing it up to mor­tal hero Bek (Bren­ton Th­waites) and god of the sun Horus (Niko­laj“Kingslayer” Coster-Wal­dau) to save the day.

Lon­don Has Fallen

(USA) A se­quel to 2013’s ex­plo­sive-tas­tic “Olym­pus Has Fallen,” Ger­ard But­ler re­turns as the US Se­cret Ser­vice agent, gun­ning to pro­tect the Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent (Aaron Eck­hart), whose life is in dan­ger thanks to a ne­far­i­ous plot to de­stroy the world’s lead­ers as they at­tend the funeral of the Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter.
