We’re entering the dog days of summer and the last of the summer blockbusters has opened (or maybe closed – it’s been that kind of summer). Into that void comes The Hitman’s Bodyguard – a movie that would be a B-movie if not for its high powered leads.

After his Triple-A rated protection agency goes ‘Pffft!’ following losing a client, Michael Bryce (the world’s top bodyguard) gets a major gig shepherding Darius Kincaid (the world’s top hitman) to the World Court in The Hague. Things do not go smoothly.

The new red band trailer for American Assassin sure looks like CBS Films and Lionsgate are hoping it will become a franchise (it is based on a series of novels by Vince Flynn).

Power Rangers is a more serious take on the patched together kids’ show that gained a huge following in the ‘90s. More serious doesn’t mean Batman serious – more like Iron Man Lite.

It’s fun if you don’t go in with much in the way of expectations – and it checks off a laundry list of diversity requirements: there’s a black kid and an Hispanic kid and an Asian kid, and a kid ‘on the spectrum,’ and a mean girl, and a gay kid, and forty-percent of the team is female (one way the original series was ahead of its time – it’s good to see that stay intact).
