Here's your complete guide to fun through Sept. 6!
Kin: An ex-con and his teen brother go on the run with a mysterious weapon, their only protection against a vengeful criminal (James Franco). Reviews aren't so hot: "Probably could have worked as a straightforward drama about two troubled brothers, or as a road trip that slowly takes on mythic sci-fi proportions, but its chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination of the two feels disjointed and unsatisfying," writes The Wrap's Todd Gilchrist. (Previews Aug. 30, opens Aug. 31. United Artists Amarillo Star 14, 8275 W. Amarillo Blvd., and Cinemark Hollywood 16, 9100 Canyon Drive.)
Ya Veremos: In this Spanish dramedy, a preteen boy may lose his eyesight, so he comes up with a bucket list of things to do — and insists that his divorcing parents come along with him.
