This week’s new theatrical releases are coming a couple days early so you can get a head start on your holiday. Two big sequels will be in theaters everywhere this Wednesday: “Terminator Genisys”, which hope to breathe new life into the franchise, and the comedy “Magic Mike XXL”. Read more about those movies and this week’s other new releases below.
Nationwide Releases (in theaters Wednesday, July 1):
“Terminator Genisys”: This action movie directed by Alan Taylor is the fifth film in the “Terminator” franchise, and the first in a long time to include original star Arnold Schwarzenegger. In this movie, John Connor (Jason Clarke), the leader of the human resistance in a future torn by war between man and machine, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to protect his mother Sarah (Emilia Clarke) and thereby preserve the future. But when Kyle goes to the past, nothing is how he expected it to be, and the messed up timeline includes new allies, as well as new enemies. Available for viewing in 3D. Runtime: 126 minutes. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and gunplay throughout, partial nudity and brief strong language.
“Magic Mike XXL”: Directed by Gregory Jacobs, this sequel to the surprise hit “Magic Mike” is set three years after the first movie. Mike (Channing Tatum) is done with the stripper life, but he and his team decide to put on one last big performance. Runtime: 115 minutes. Rated R for strong sexual content, pervasive language, some nudity and drug use.
