Gretel & Hansel – Based on the German fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm comes this horrifying adaptation. When Gretel (Sophia Lillis) and her little brother Hansel (Sammy Leakey) venture into the dark woods as runaways, their hunger leads them to follow the smell of cakes, where they stumble upon a witch’s (Alice Krige) home. The children take shelter in her home, and she prepares food for them. Although she appears to be hospitable at first, as the children spend more time with the witch, slowly they become trapped in a nightmarish reality. Click here for showtimes.
The Rhythm Section – Three years after her family dies in a plane crash, Stephanie Patrick (Blake Lively) — who was also supposed to be on the flight — is told that the crash was in fact an act of terror. When information arises about the terrorists who are responsible, Stephanie leaps into action in a globe-trotting affair that will push her to her limits, sparing no expense or thought on the costs of her vendetta.
