“Dunkirk” (PG-13)

Christopher Nolan directs this World War II movie about 400,000 soldiers trapped by the Germans on a French beach, with enemy pilots destroying any attempt at rescue.
Kenneth Branagh is a naval officer trying to get the troops to safety, Tom Hardy is a fighter pilot defending the men on the beach from enemy planes, and Mark Rylance is a civilian boat captain who sails into the war zone to save as many people as he can.
But what’s most likely to spur YOUR young teenage daughters to see “Dunkirk” is the fact that Harry Styles from One Direction is in it as one of the stranded soldiers.

“Girls Trip” (R)

Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish take a road trip down to New Orleans for a wild weekend at the annual Essence Festival.
Mariah Carey, Common, Diddy, Ne-Yo, and the guys from Bell Biv DeVoe have cameos as themselves. And the guy who plays “Luke Cage” is also in it.

“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” (PG-13)

Dane Dehaan and Cara Delevingne are intergalactic cops given a mission to board an enormous space station and prevent a disaster that would threaten centuries of peace between thousands of alien species.
It’s based on a French graphic novel. Valerian is the name of Dehaan’s character, and it’s directed by the guy who did “The Fifth Element”.
Clive Owen plays their boss, and the alien cameos include Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Rutger Hauer, and Rihanna as a sexy shape-shifter named Bubble.
