Spider-Man: Homecoming (PG-13 / July 7) – We’ve all heard of reboots. But a reboot of a reboot? That’s what Sony and Marvel will give us with the latest Spider-Man film, which is the sixth live-action movie and the second reboot in the past 15 years based on “Spidey.” This one stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man as he seeks to balance high school life with his world-saving chores. Rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence, some language and brief suggestive comments.
Dunkirk (PG-13 / July 21) – Ever wondered what a movie with very little dialogue would look like? We’re going to find out when Dunkirk – based on a largely forgotten Allied evacuation during World War II – is released. Director Christopher Nolan, who also helmed the mind-bending films Inception and Interstellar, told a British newspaper earlier this year that Dunkirk would be unique in having few spoken words. The story, he added, would be told through the on-screen action. Rated PG-13 for intense war experience and some language.
Is Genesis History? – The popular Bible-based documentary that sold out theaters earlier this year is now on DVD and streaming on Netflix. Host Del Tackett – well known for his work on Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project – examines the scientific evidence for the Genesis account of the Creation and the Flood. More than 15 experts are interviewed who counter the popular pro-evolutionary narrative.
