“American Made”: Tom Cruise stars as real-life TWA airline pilot turned drug smuggler Barry Seal in this biographical crime drama from director Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity”). Seal flew for the Medellín Cartel in the ‘80s and became an undercover DEA informant to avoid jail time before being killed by Colombian assassins. Sarah Wright (“Marry Me”) and Domhnall Gleeson (“Ex Machina”) co-star. 1 hr. 55; R.

“Flatliners”: Despite not having a number attached to the title, this sci-fi thriller from original Swedish-language “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” director Niels Arden Oplev is a sequel to the identically-titled Joel Schumacher film from 1990. Ellen Page (“Juno”) leads a new group of death-obsessed medical students and Kiefer Sutherland (“24”) makes a cameo reprising his role from the original movie. 1 hr. 48; PG-13.

“Til Death Do Us Part”: Director Chris Stokes usually splits his time between dance battle movies and horror movies (he’s responsible for “You Got Served” and the “Somebody Help Me” series), and his latest falls in the psycho-thriller category. Annie Ilzoneh (“All Eyez On Me”) stars as as the survivor of an abusive marriage who meets a new love (Taye Diggs) only to have her dangerous ex (Stephen Bishop) return to threaten her. 1 hr. 41; PG-13.
