It’s been six months since the gangs last adventure, and suddenly Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) remembers stuff from her childhood. She remembers something about “the Jewel of Morro Bay.” Dory takes off on an another adventure with Nemo (Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (Albert Brooks) in tow, this time, to find her family. “Finding Dory” Website

What to Watch For:  The film is a sequel to the monster animated 2003 hit “Finding Nemo.“

Word on the Street:  Besides Dory, Nemo, and Marlin, other characters scheduled to return are Mr. Ray, Crash, and Squirt.

My Take:  I look forward to this film because I, and almost everyone else, loved Nemo.

“Central Intelligence”  (2016)

Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) was a one-timed bullied overweight geek. He had a growth spirt and becomes a lethal CIA agent. Bob now needs help from his old high school friend  (Kevin Hart) in the murky wold of espionage. “Central Intelligence” Website

What to Watch For:  This is the first paring of Johnson and Heart.

Word on the Street: Rawson Marshall Thurber, the director of this film, directed the  2013 film “We Are the Millers.”

My Take:  I think Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the best on the mic wrestlers in history.

“Genius”  (2016)

The story of Max Perkins (Colin Firth), who worked for the famous publishing house Scribner, oversaw  some of the greats writers of all time, including Ernest Hemingway (Dominic West)  and F. Scott Fitzgerald (Guy Pearce.) Now a new author is on the scene, Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law), and Max is going to be challenged like never before.  “Genius” Website

What to Watch For:  The film is based on a true story.

Word on the Street: The film is based on the 1978 National Book Award-winner Max Perkins: Editor of Genius by A. Scott Berg.

My Take:  I am a big gan of Colin Firth.
