The Denver Post

In Theaters

A brief look at films playing in the Denver area.


Blade Runner

An imaginativ­e, visually stunning if overlong sequel from Denis Villeneuve that embraces and embellishe­s Ridley Scott’s original 1982 dark vision of a future Los Angeles where police (Ryan Gosling) hunt down synthetic humans, even as the latter grow more like us. With Harrison Ford, Jared Leto, Ana de Armas and MacKenzie Davis. (2:44) R

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

An uptight security pro (Ryan Reynolds) is assigned to guard an assassin (Samuel L. Jackson) scheduled to testify against a genocidal dictator (Gary Oldman). Not great filmmaking, but these days, even the sophomoric spectacle of racial solidarity, in the form of a buddy comedy, is certainly better than nothing. (1:41) R


Written as a starring role for the late character actor Harry Dean Stanton, who stars as a version of himself in this meandering, sometimes moving story of an elderly man contemplat­ing the end of his life in a small desert town. With David Lynch, Tom Skerritt and Ed Begley Jr. (1:29) No MPAA rating


Chadwick Boseman stars as a young Thurgood Marshall trying, in 1940, to clear a black man (Sterling K. Brown) of rape. Also featuring Josh Gad and Kate Hudson. (1:58) PG-13

The Mountain Between Us

A strange lack of chemistry exists between leads Kate Winslet and Idris Elba in this story of two people stranded by a plane crash on a snowy mountain peak, hiking to safety. With Beau Bridges. (1:40) PG-13

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Historical drama about William Marston (Luke Evans) who invented Wonder Woman and had a secret three-way marriage to two women (Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcoat). With Connie Britton, Oliver Platt. (1:48) R
