Af­ter the Storm

A once-suc­cess­ful nov­el­ist turned fi­nan­cially and morally ir­re­spon­si­ble PI (Hiroshi Abe, “Godzilla 2000: Mil­len­nium”) has one night to at­tempt rec­on­cil­i­a­tion and mu­tual re­spect and un­der­stand­ing with his ex-wife, son and mother as a ty­phoon passes through his town. Peace­fully shot with mo­ments of true beauty from an of­ten rep­re­hen­si­ble pro­tag­o­nist, this film shows re­mark­able care and nu­ance in tack­ling themes of dys­func­tion. Opened Jul 21.

Star Trek Be­yond

The third in­stall­ment of the re­booted

Star Trek se­ries marks the last ap­pear­ance by the late An­ton Yelchin as Chekov, and opens on the 50th an­niver­sary of the beloved fran­chise; and stars Idris Elba as a preda­tory new vil­lain (who looks kind of rep­til­ian but is def­i­nitely not a Gorn). It’s been a long three years, nerds: time to go boldly to the fi­nal fron­tier. Opened Jul 21.
