The AT&T/Time Warner merger has been approved. Next up: Comcast — owners of Universal, NBC and Dreamworks, among other trinkets — is making a big bid for Fox, which, if successful, would block Disney’s play for the company that’s got most of the remaining Marvel character rights (X-Men, Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom, Silver Surfer, etc.). To put it in Stan Lee vernacular: “Which corporate titan will prevail? Will the Mouse House capture Fox’s treasures? Will our heroes survive the fury of … Comcast? Buckle your safety belts, true believers, because this one’s a doozy!!!”  /Shane Hnetka


Friday 22

JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard — their characters have names but come on, who cares — return in this sequel about a desperate attempt to rescue dinosaurs before they’re wiped out by an active volcano. Things, as usual, go sideways, but at least Jeff Goldblum pops in to give a speech about scientific ethics. Personally, I’m ready for a dinosaur movie that doesn’t have any ties to the Jurassic Park franchise. Sadly, all Hollywood will give us is more of the same.

Friday 29

SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO A strange and unnecessary sequel to the very cool and awesome Sicario. Director Denis Villeneuve and actress Emily Blunt are nowhere in sight in this follow-up that has Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro fighting Mexican drug lords. Italian filmmaker Stefano Sollima takes over the director’s seat.

UNCLE DREW Movies have sold product placement since the beginning of cinema. It started getting really bad in the late 1960s into the 1970s — General Zod kicking Superman into a Marlboro truck is a special kind of low — and today it’s just part of the fallen world we’re all trapped in. But this, this is a whole new level of cynical. This film is from Pepsi. A few years ago, the soft drink company hired NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving to star in series of commercials as a character named Uncle Drew, who was very old and very good at basketball. I guess they were somewhat popular, but to be honest I don’t recall ever seeing them. Their success prompted Pepsi to make this movie. For fun, count how many Pepsi logos you can spot in the trailer.

Wednesday 4

THE FIRST PURGE This a prequel to all those Purge movies. Q: will it be any different than the previous three? A: no.

Friday 6

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP This sequel to Marvel’s most surprising hit has Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) teaming up with The Wasp (Evangeline Lily) to fight the evil Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) and find the original Wasp (Michelle Pfeiffer) in an adventure that takes place before Avengers: Infinity War for fairly obvious reasons. Should be fun  though it’s pretty annoying that it took Marvel 20 movies to put a female superhero’s name in a title.

RPL Film Theatre

Thursday 21

6:30 CABARET Liza Minnelli stars as a cabaret singer in 1930s Germany. This 1972 masterpiece musical by director Bob Fosse won multiple Oscars, including Best Actress for Minnelli.

Friday 22

6:30 THE LEISURE SEEKER Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland star as an elderly couple on a final, defiant cross-country trip in their old motor home — the titular Leisure Seeker. Wacky adventures ensue. Looks sweet, if you like sweet.

8:30 ISLE OF DOGS Wes Anderson’s latest is this stop-motion animated movie about a child looking for a pet that was exiled to an island of garbage with all the other dogs. Say this movie’s title out loud to discover a fun pun.

Saturday 23

3:30 FAMILY MATINEE: THE ILLUSIONIST OR MAYBE THE INCREDIBLES Not sure which animated movie is playing this day — the Regina Public Library has both listed at 3:30 p.m. My nickel’s on The Illusionist, because The Incredibles plays on the 30th. You’ll be okay either way: The Illusionist is a great animated film from France about a magician and The Incredibles is about a superhero family.



Sunday 24

3:30 CINEMA CLASSICS: YOUNG SOUL REBELS This sprawling British coming-of-age story is set amidst the cultural upheaval of the late 1970s. It follows several different groups of youths.



Tuesday 26

Wednesday 27

Thursday 28

6:30 LORNA MILLS: WAYS OF SOMETHING 100 digital artists each remake a one-minute scene from John Berger’s Ways of Seeing.

Friday 29

6:30 MOUNTAIN This documentary looks at various mountains in all their majestic beauty. The Australian Chamber Orchestra provides the soundtrack.

8:30 OH LUCY! A Japanese woman discovers an alter-ego, Lucy, while taking an English course. Unlikely shenanigans follow. Looks wacky and possibly adorable.

Saturday 30

3:30 FAMILY MATINEE: THE INCREDIBLES Aha! If The Incredibles is playing today, I bet The Illusionist is June 23’s free film. A superhero family forced into hiding uncovers a nefarious plot in this breakout feature from director Brad Bird.

6:30 OH LUCY!
