After surviving a car accident, a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) wakes up in an underground cellar. She was rescued by a man (John Goodman) who claims that a worldwide chemical attack has left the Earth’s surface uninhabitable. “10 Cloverfield Lane” Website

What to Watch For: Producer J.J. Abrams describes the film as not “a Literal sequel” of the 2008 film, “Cloverfield” but a “blood relative” of the film.

Word on the Street: The film was made with a very small budget of 5 million.

My Take: It will be interesting to see how this film connects to the first film.

The film opens at a number of Atlanta area theatres on Friday.

“The Perfect Match” (2016)

Charlie (Terrence J) has always played the field. His best friends (Donald Faison, Robert C. Riley) bet him that if he sticks to one woman for a month, he will get attached. Charlie thinks it’s an easy bet until he meets Eva (Cassie Venture). “The Perfect Match” Facebook Page

What to Watch For: Three of the stars of the film, Lauren London, Terrance J and Brandy Norwood, all appeared on the TV show, “The Game.”

Word on the Street: The director of the film, Bille Woodruff, directed a number of episodes of “The Game.”

My Take: I always love to watch Paula Patton on the big screen.

What to Watch For: The film has an outstanding cast including Cate Blanchett, Freida Pinto, Natalie Portman and Antonio Banderas.

Word on the Street: The film is written and directed by three-time Academy Award nominated Terrence Malick.

My Take: Christian Bale always gives interesting performances.

Opens Friday exclusively at UA Tara Cinemas 4

Taeko, is a 27-year old office worker who travels to the country (the countryside or a country? If a country, which country?) while reminiscing about her childhood in Tokyo. “Only Yesterday” Website

What to Watch For: The film was never released in North America. So, for the 25th anniversary of the film, a new Studio Ghibli-produced English-language version is being released.

Word on the Street: Hot off her “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” performance, Daisy Ridley is the voice of Taeko.

My Take: I am a big fan of Studio Ghibli, and I am looking forward to seeing this film.

Opens exclusively at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema
