FIT­TING con­clu­sion to the re­booted sci-fi fran­chise. Twelve years after the ALZ-113 virus rav­aged the globe, Cae­sar (Andy Serkis), his wife Cor­nelia (Judy Greer) and their sons Blue Eyes (Max Lloyd-Jones) and Cor­nelius (Devyn Dal­ton) are liv­ing in ex­ile in the woods with the rest of the apes. Colonel McCul­lough (Woody Har­rel­son) and his sol­diers stage an as­sault on the ape strong­hold and kill most of Cae­sar’s fam­ily. The grief-stricken leader orders the sur­vivors to flee in search of a new home while he ex­acts re­venge on the Colonel.

CARS 3 (U)

WELL-OILED com­puter-an­i­mated se­quel. Light­ning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wil­son) screeches to vic­tory in the Pis­ton Cup but cock­sure rookie Jack­son Storm (Ar­mie Ham­mer) steals his thun­der. A high-speed col­li­sion forces Light­ning to re­tire to Ra­di­a­tor Springs. Fond mem­o­ries of men­tor Doc Hud­son (Paul New­man) com­pel Light­ning to hit the come­back trail. Trainer Cruz Ramirez (Cris­tela Alonzo) im­proves Light­ning’s speed and stamina, and to­gether they seek out Doc’s men­tor, Smokey (Chris Cooper).

Avail­able to down­load and stream now, and from Novem­ber 13 on DVD/Blu-ray.


JENNA COLE­MAN reprises her role as Bri­tain’s sec­ond-long­est reign­ing monarch op­po­site Tom Hughes as her stead­fast com­pan­ion Prince Al­bert in the ITV drama.

Vic­to­ria (Cole­man) strug­gles to come to terms with moth­er­hood and is im­pa­tient to re­turn to the busi­ness of rul­ing her em­pire. Al­bert’s friend­ship with a pretty fe­male math­e­ma­ti­cian rouses the green-eyed mon­ster against a back­drop of court scan­dals and con­sti­tu­tional crises. News of the Ir­ish potato famine spurs Vic­to­ria into ac­tion, but her po­lit­i­cal naivete could be her down­fall.

Avail­able to down­load and stream now, and from Novem­ber 13 on DVD/Blu-ray.
