Quick Takes

AQUAMAN,” rated PG-13. A half-human, half-Atlantean learns his destiny to rule the underwater world. First he must battle the evil Orm, amid gobs of submarine sci-fi fighting and digital effects.

“BEN IS BACK,” rated R. A 19-year-old addict returns home to his mother and siblings on Christmas Eve, but his past has not gone away despite his months in rehab. Starring Julia Roberts, Courtney B. Vance, and Lucas Hedges and directed by Peter Hedges.

“THE FAVOURITE,” rated R. Two women vie to be close to a frail but commanding Queen Anne in 18th-century England. Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, and Olivia Colman (as the queen) star in this psychological drama and portrait of ambition.

GLASS,” rated PG-13. Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy lead a large cast in a superhero story from M. Night Shyamalan that ties together narratives from his previous films “Unbreakable” and “Split.”

IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK,” rated R. Based on the novel by James Baldwin, this film follows a woman as she tries to clear her husband’s name after he is charged with a crime he didn’t commit. Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”) directs. 

MARY POPPINS RETURNS,” rated PG. The greatest nanny ever rejoins the Banks family, helping them rediscover the joy and wonder missing from their lives. Rob Marshall directed a cast with Emily Blunt in the title role and Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, and Colin Firth.

“ON THE BASIS OF SEX,” rated PG-13. A legal drama biopic about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s rise to the Supreme Court. With Felicity Jones as Ginsburg when she was a young lawyer struggling for equal rights and Armie Hammer as her husband.

“SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE,” rated PG. An animated adventure-comedy with a twist — this time the web-slinger is a Brooklyn kid named Miles Morales, who meets up with various incarnations of Spider-Man from other dimensions to battle the Kingpin and Doctor Octopus.   

STAN & OLLIE,” rated PG. Laurel and Hardy set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953, late in their careers, to reconnect with fans. But the movie, written by Jeff Pope and directed by Jon S. Baird, is really about the relationship between two of early Hollywood’s comedic greats as they approach their swan song. With Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly.

THE UPSIDE,” rated PG-13. A wealthy white man confined to a wheelchair (Bryan Cranston) hires a black ex-con on parole (Kevin Hart) as his helper, and comedy high jinks ensue. Taken from a true story that became a hit French movie, “The Intouchables.” 

“VICE,” rated R. Christian Bale recreates Vice President Dick Cheney in a dramatization of Cheney’s path from a Washington bureaucrat to the most powerful person in the world, essentially running the George W. Bush White House.
