The plot's the thing

The Equalizer — Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloe Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help.

The Boxtrolls (PG) — This animated feature tells the tale of the Boxtrolls, monsters who live underneath the streets of Cheesebridge and crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising as one of their own an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous exterminator who is bent on eradicating them, Eggs must venture aboveground to save them. Starring the voices of Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette and Elle Fanning.

This is Where I Leave You (R) — When their father passes away, four grown siblings are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways. Stars Jason Bateman, Tina Fey and Jane Fonda.

A Walk Among the Tombstones (R) — An ex-NYPD cop and recovering alcoholic haunted by regrets, Matt Scudder (Liam Neeson), has a lot to make up for. When a series of kidnappings targeting the wives of drug dealers escalates to grisly murder, Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) and his brother (Boyd Holbrook) hunt the two men down and bring them to bloody justice.

The Maze Runner (PG-13) — Thomas wakes up in a strange place called the Glade with no memory aside from his first name. The Glade is an enclosed structure populated by other boys, and is surrounded by tall, stone walls that protect them from monsters called Grievers. Every day, some of the kids who are Runners venture into the labyrinth trying to map the ever-changing pattern of walls in an attempt to find an exit. Stars Dylan O’Brien and Kaya Scodelario.

No Good Deed (PG-13) — A former district attorney and her children are kidnapped by a man who has escaped from prison and poses as the victim of a car accident. Stars Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson and Kate del Castillo.

Lucy (R) — When a woman is caught up in a dark deal that goes wrong, she transforms and seemingly evolves into a merciless warrior that human logic can hardly understand.  Stars Scarlett Johansson, Analeigh Tipton and Morgan Freeman.
