Point Blank

Release: Friday, July 12, 2019 (Netflix) →Netflix Written by: Adam G. Simon Directed by: Joe Lynch Point Blank isn't a very good crime drama, but in its pairing together of some famous superheroes (third-tier Avengers, but who's counting) it surely hopes to distract you from that inconvenient fact of quality.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Release: Friday, May 31, 2019 →Theater Written by: Zach Shields; Michael Dougherty  Directed by: Michael Dougherty  The sequel to Gareth Edwards' Godzilla (2014) is undeniably a different beast, dispensing with its predecessor's drip-fed action and methodical pacing for more direct, adrenaline-spiking payoff.

John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum

Release: Friday, May 17, 2019 → Theater Written by: Derek Kolstad; Shay Hatten; Chris Collins; Marc Abrams Directed by: Chad Stahelski Actions have consequences, as we are quite explicitly shown (and told, too!) in the ultra-violent third installment of the brawn-over-brains John Wick franchise.
