Chloe & Theo An Inuit man travels to New York City to let world leaders know about the impact climate change is having on his homeland. There he meets Chloe (Dakota Johnson), who decides to help him save the world. (PG-13)

The Transporter Refueled Your calendar insists that summer has three more weeks to go, but your culturally mandated lifestyle begs to differ. By this point, you've already slathered Instagram with pics of your kids heading back to school, you're raiding the shelves of Dollar Tree for Halloween decorations, and you've given up on the idea that going to the movies might yield any options more promising than seeing Straight Outta Compton a second time. (You can sneak in now, because the cops are gone!) Enter The Transporter Refueled, Hollywood's official sacrificial lamb for Labor Day 2015. Sure, Transporter 2 set a record for business on the holiday, but: a) that's not a hard competition to win; and b) it was 10 friggin' years ago. And unlike previous entries in the series, Refueled is lacking Jason Statham, who is unquestionably the best in the world at whatever it is he does. In his place, we now have Ed Skrein, the British-born actor/rapper/alleged stabbing survivor known to American audiences from a season of Game of Thrones and the advance promo for Deadpool. Still unsold? There's a quartet of deadly hot chicks in this thing, too. They always make for good viewing, amirite? No? Well, maybe it's not too late to splice in a shot or two of MC Ren. (PG-13)
