Other new movie releases for the weekend of August 19

New releases:

"Kubo and the Two Strings"
The latest offering from Laika (the studio behind "Coraline") is set in a fantastical Japan and features the voices of two Academy Award winners in Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey.

"Imperium"
Daniel Radcliffe continues to impress with his bold post-Potter roles, this time as an FBI agent who goes deep undercover in an American white-nationalist group.

"Ben-Hur"
The 1959 epic starring Charlton Heston gets a 2016 remake, because, hey, why not? At least it's not in 3D. Oh, wait. It totally is.

Also in theaters:

"Sausage Party"
Seth Rogen and pals get ridiculous and R-rated in this always vulgar, often hilarious, sometimes smart parody of Pixar-type animated features. (3 stars)
