Bad Neigh­bors 2

(USA) If you saw the first “Bad Neigh­bors” and thought to your­self, “Man, that was phe­nom­e­nal, but I re­ally want to see that again, but with soror­ity sis­ters and Lisa Kudrow for some rea­son!” then con­grat­u­la­tions: Christ­mas has come early this year for you, weirdo. Opened May 12.

Chongqing Hot Pot

(China) What be­gins as a bank heist by four am­a­teur rob­bers turns into a labyrinthine tour through sub­ter­ranean Chongqing, a trip down mem­ory lane, a damsel in ca­reer-dis­tress, and a show­down with the real pros. This screw­ball ca­per stars Bai Baihe (“Go Away Mr. Tu­mor”) and Chen Kun (“Let the Bul­lets Fly”). Opened May 12.

The In­erasable

(Ja­pan) Keep­ing with Ja­pan’s tra­di­tion of slow-burn­ing, bone-rat­tling hor­ror films, “The In­erasable” fol­lows a nov­el­ist as she in­ves­ti­gates the case of a stu­dent who hears strange noises com­ing from an empty room in an other­wise per­fectly or­di­nary house. Opened May 12.

The Lob­ster

(Ire­land/UK/Greece) In a city in the am­bigu­ous fu­ture, sin­gle peo­ple are given 45 days to find a part­ner or they’re forced to turn into an­i­mals and are re­leased into the wild. It is in this chaos that newly ar­rived David (Colin Far­rell) has to get over his for­mer love and start anew. Also stars Rachel Weisz and John C. Reilly. Opened May 12.

Money Mon­ster

(USA) Eco­nomic dis­par­ity is the theme of this Jodie Foster-di­rected sus­pense film. A fi­nan­cial TV pre­sen­ter (Ge­orge Clooney) is taken hostage by blue-col­lar viewer (Jack O’Con­nell, “Un­bro­ken”) who lost all his money on a bad tip. Fea­tures Ju­lia Roberts and a sound­track by Bruce Spring­steen. Opened May 13.
