A rundown of select films currently in theaters

“Wonder Woman”

Will this finally be the much-needed representation of a strong female superhero and also break the streak of mediocre movies in the DC Universe? Signs are pointing to yes.

The popular children's book series heads to the big screen in this animated movie with voice talents including Kevin Hart and Ed Helms.

“Violet”

This drama, in the vein of Gus Van Sant's “Elephant,” centers on 15-year-old boy dealing with the fallout from a random act of violence leveled at his best friend at a mall.
