Weeds On Fire

(Hong Kong) Tak­ing place, of all places, in Sha Tin in the ‘80s, this first fea­ture from di­rec­tor Chan Chi-fat tells the story of two child­hood friends in a lit­tle league baseball team who rise up through the ranks, fall in love, and learn some valu­able life lessons. Opened Aug 25.

Kilo Two Bravo

(UK/Jor­dan) This bru­tal, slow-burn­ing film by first-time fea­ture di­rec­tor Paul Katis fol­lows a group of sol­diers de­ployed in Afghanistan who get trapped in a mine­field near Ka­jaki Dam. As bod­ies pile up and mor­phine runs low, the re­main­ing men have to care­fully plan their way to safety. Opened Aug 25. Shin Godzilla

(Ja­pan) This new, do­mes­ti­cally made Godzilla movie (in the US ti­tled “Godzilla Resur­gence”) is mak­ing a huge stir at the Ja­panese box of­fice. Catch it be­fore it stomps away, leav­ing a trail of flat­tened apart­ment build­ings. Opened Aug 25.

Train to Bu­san

(South Korea) This bone-rat­tling thriller finds a group of pas­sen­gers on a bul­let train to Bu­san, flee­ing a coun­try­wide zombie out­break. Un­like “Snakes on a Plane,” this hor­ror flick is more than just zom­bies on a train: It’s got some deeper, yet some­times corny emo­tions in­ter­twined be­tween the grue­some killings. Opened Aug 25. PPP
