Screen Gems: New at Marquee Cinemas this week
New on Friday, March 24, 2017 for Marquee Cinemas at Southridge in Charleston and Marquee Cinemas at Pullman Square in Huntington
Rated R for crude sexual content, graphic nudity, pervasive language, some violence and drug use
Jon Baker and Frank Ponch Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten-up former pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job - inside the CHP.
The inexperienced rookie and the hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kick-starting a real partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker's unique bike skills and Ponch's street savvy it might just work - if they don't drive each other crazy first.
1 hr. 41 min.
Rated R for language throughout, some sci-fi violence and terror
Life tells the story of the six-member crew of the International Space Station that is on the cutting edge of one of the most important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As the crew begins to conduct research, their methods end up having unintended consequences and the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.
1 hr. 44 min.
Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, language, and for some crude humor
The story follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove - and the world - is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it's too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

Muppets creator Jim Henson directed this musical fantasy about a teenage girl (Jennifer Connelly) who must enter the mythical world of the Labyrinth to rescue her kidnapped baby brother. Henson’s puppets are amazing, but it was the casting of David Bowie, who also contributed 5 original songs, that made this an iconic 80’s film. A highlight is “Magic Dance,” performed by Bowie and a gaggle of goblin puppets. (“You remind me of a babe…”) Rated PG
