“Blade Runner 2049” (R)

In the first movie, Harrison Ford was Rick Deckard, a cop hunting synthetic bioengineered humans called replicants. This one takes place 30 years later, and stars Ryan Gosling as a new blade runner who uncovers a secret that puts him on a quest to find Deckard.
Robin Wright plays his boss, Jared Leto is the guy whose company took over manufacturing replicants, and Dave Bautista is also in it as an escaped skin job.
The director had his friends make short films about what’s happened in the three decades since the events of the first movie . . . which took place in the “futuristic” year of 2019.

“The Mountain Between Us” (PG-13)

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet are stranded on a remote snow covered mountain. They risk their lives for each other to get back to civilization once they realize no one’s going to find their plane crash because the pilot never filed a flight plan. Beau Bridges plays their pilot.

“My Little Pony: The Movie” (PG)

Emily Blunt plays a unicorn with a broken horn who crashes the ponies’ party and steals their home. As agonizingly painful as it may be to sit through a “My Little Pony” movie, at least it’s got an impressive voice cast.
Uzo Aduba from “Orange is the New Black” plays the queen. Zoe Saldana is some kind of pirate captain, Sia is a pop star pony, and Liev Schrieber and Taye Diggs are bad guys.
