Ready or Not—Samara Weaving plays a new bride drawn into an unusual game of hide-and-seek with her husband’s wealthy family in this genre-blurring horror-comedy-thriller. Rated R.
The Angry Birds Movie 2— Jason Sudekis leads a surprisingly decent film about an iPhone game. Rated PG.

★★ Men in Black: International—What if Men in Black, but Morocco and Chris Hemsworth’s torso? Rated PG-13. —Glenn McDonald
