The San Diego Comic Con opens on July 19 as this paper hits the streets and as usual, most studios — with the disappointing exception of Marvel — will use this year’s convention to showcase their upcoming movies and TV shows. Of note: Fox will screen Deadpool 2: Super Duper [email protected]%!#& Cut. This extended cut will be available in August when the movie makes it to home theatres. Not sure Deadpool 2 really needs an extra 15 minutes but we’ll see. /Shane Hnetka


Friday 20

THE EQUALIZER 2 Denzel Washington returns as Robert McCall, a retired CIA agent who protects ordinary people from thugs and criminals. It’s based on a 1980s TV series that starred the late, great Edward Woodward and had cool theme music by Police drummer Stewart Copeland.


UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB A stolen laptop exposes a group of friends to the psychotic whims of maniacs lurking in the dark web. Looks like a cross between a found-footage horror movie and the Saw franchise.

Friday 27

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT It’s the movie that gave Superman a moustache! The sixth film in the Mission: Impossible series (which has some catching up to do with the Fast and the Furious franchise) follows IMF operative Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) as he races against the clock — and assassins, and the CIA — to fix a mission gone wrong. For the most part, these are really good action movies. Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie directed Cruise in Jack Reacher and the last Mission: Impossible movie with some success, so there’s a good chance this will be a winner.

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES Some people don’t like it but I enjoy Teen Titans Go! This funny, subversive animated TV series makes fun of DC superheroes and more importantly itself. It looks like a kids’ show but it’s really aimed at the adults — well, adults like me anyway. You can watch three seasons of it on Netflix, or find  clips from the show on YouTube. Might I suggest “Beast Boy Justice League talent show” or “Kitty picnic”? Either will make you laugh, say “WTF” or maybe just conclude that my taste in entertainment is hopelessly juvenile.

Friday 3

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN It’s another live-action Disney film based on a classic animated movie!. Ewan McGregor plays a grown-up Christopher Robin who works to much instead of spending time with his family. Enter Winnie the Pooh and friends to save the day by giving Christopher a much-needed reminder about the magic of childhood.. It’s kind of like Steven Spielberg’s Hook, but hopefully not terrible.

SEARCHING In this low-budget thriller, John Cho plays a father searching for his missing daughter who, it turns out, is leading a super-sketchy secret life. Searching is shot point-of-view with laptops and cell phone cameras, and got some great early reviews after it premiered at Sundance.

THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME Mila Kunis finds out her ex-boyfriend is a spy, which explains why there are now a bunch of  people trying to kill her and best friend Kate McKinnon. Wackiness tries to ensue.

RPL Film Theatre

Thursday 19

10:00 THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE Extremely funny movie about Batman getting a ward, who of course becomes Robin, the boy wonder.

6:30 DO THE RIGHT THING Spike Lee’s classic about racial tensions that boil over during a summer heat wave in Brooklyn. The movie is even more relevant today than it was on its 1989 release.

Friday 20

6:30 C’EST LA VIE! In this French comedy, a wedding planner faces an escalating series of hilarious disasters culminating in career-threating calamity.

8:30 ON CHESIL BEACH  Based on Ian McEwan’s prize-winning novel about newlyweds whose marriage explodes after their first sexual encounter ends, um, prematurely.

Wednesday 25

CINEMA UNDER THE STARS: JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE In this sequel, a group of kids are shlorked into a video game and forced to compete. Actually not terrible.

Thursday 26


6:30 STAND BY ME This classic coming-of-age film is based on the Stephen King tale “The Body” from  his novella collection Different Seasons. It’s about a group of boys looking for a body in the woods. Stars Keifer Sutherland, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, Jerry O’Connell and the late River Phoenix.

Friday 27

6:30 THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ANDRE This documentary looks at the life of André Leon Talley, a writer and editor who helped shape the fashion world.

8:30 BOOK CLUB Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen star as  women who read the 50 Shades of whatever novels in their book club. Wackiness ensues as their lives change forever because of a smutty story. Yup. That’s the plot. First-time director Bill Holderman probably hasn’t crafted a masterpiece here.

Saturday 28
