The Man Who Knew Infinity See review, above.
Independence Day: Resurgence
The sequel to 1996’s “Independence Day” brings former President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) and scientist David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) back together, along with a new generation of unreasonably beautiful scientists and pilots to defeat an even greater threat of alien invasion. Hey, where’s Will Smith, you ask? Well, he was too expensive, so they killed off his character. That’s showbiz loyalty for you. Thanks for nothing, Will Smith. Opens Jun 23.
Fifty Shades of Black
Not an official sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey”—you’ll have to wait until 2017 before Mr. Grey will see you again—but a spoof starring Marlon Wayans (“White Chicks”),
Kali Hawk (“Bridesmaids”) and Fred Willard (“Anchorman”). The best review so far?
“It’s just not funny.” Ouch. Opens Jun 23.
