Every Movie You Can See in Theaters This Week That Isn’t ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’

OK, I listed 'Sonic' too. So sue me, I'm a completist.

Paramount Pictures/Universal|

Big week for movies with two guys looking at each other.

I've got three letters for you jokers: RRR. (Or is that one letter three times?) Like most American moviegoers who don't pay much attention to the Indian film industry, I didn't realize S. S. Rajamouli's bonkers historical epic was such a box office phenomenon till after its release. But I'm glad I found out: I'll have more to say about its flaming arrows, CGI tigers, high-energy dance numbers, and very non-non-violent take on anti-imperialism tomorrow.
