Before I Fall: Based on Lauren Oliver’s 2010 young adult novel, this mash-up of “Groundhog Day” and “Mean Girls,” from indie director Ry Russo-Young (“Nobody Walks”) and screenwriter Maria Maggenti (“The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love”), stars Zoey Deutch (“Vampire Academy”) as a high school girl stuck in a loop that causes her to keep reliving the last day of her life. 1 hr. 39; PG-13.
Get Out: A new classic is born in this “Stepford Wives”-inspired horror satire from writer-director Jordan Peele (“Key & Peele”) about an interracial couple (Daniel Kaluuya, “Sicario,” and Allison Williams, “Girls”) whose visit to a ritzy family estate unfolds into a mysterious, surreal nightmare. Betty Gabriel and Katherine Keener co-star. 1 hr.44; R.
Hidden Figures: This film tells the story of mathematician Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson, “Empire”) and her colleagues Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae, “Moonlight”) and Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer, “The Help”), the African-American women whose calculations were crucial to NASA’s early space missions. 2 hr. 7; PG.
John Wick: Chapter Two: Keanu Reeves (“The Matrix”), John Leguizamo (“American Ultra”) and director Chad Stahelski return for the follow-up to the 2014 hit action film about a retired assassin who makes a vengeful return to the criminal world after baddies kill his dog. 2 hr. 2; R.
Kong: Skull Island: Ignoring Peter Jackson’s 2005 epic “King Kong,” this new film is intended as a prequel to the 2014 versionof “Godzilla” and a lead-in to a battle between the two classic monsters. Set in 1971 and patterned after “Apocalypse Now,” Tom Hiddleston (“The Avengers”) leads a group of former U.S. soldiers on an expedition to catch the giant ape. Samuel L.Jackson, Brie Larson and John Goodman co-star. 1 hr. 58; PG-13.
The LEGO Batman Movie: 2014’s “The LEGO Movie” was funnier and more successful than anticipated, so having one of Hollywood’s most enduring superhero characters in a new film while we wait for the 2019 sequel will stuff the Warner Bros. pockets nicely. Cartoon Network vet Chris McKay (“Robot Chicken”) directs the celebrity voice cast. 1 hr.44; PG.
Logan: After Gavin Hood’s 2009 “Wolverine” disaster, Fox reeled back plans for more spin-offs of its popular “X-Men” franchise and turned its focus on making sure James Mangold’s follow-up, 2013’s “The Wolverine,” was nowhere near as bad. For the third in the trilogy, Mangold went R-rated and super-serious for a proper Weapon X send-off. 2 hr. 15; R.
Rock Dog: In this animated family movie based on the Chinese graphic novel “Tibetan Rock Dog,” Luke Wilson (“Legally Blonde”) stars as the voice of Bodi, a young mastiff who becomes the apprentice of an aging rock-star cat, Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard). The debut feature of “Toy Story 2” co-director Ash Brannon sports a massive celebrity voice cast. 1 hr. 30; PG.
