New movies this week: Atomic Blonde, The Emoji Movie

Posted July 27

— A look at what's new in theaters this week.

Atomic Blonde (Suspense/Thriller, R, Starring James McAvoy, Charlize Theron, Sofia Boutella, John Goodman, Toby Jones) - The crown jewel of Her Majesty's Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

The Emoji Movie (Animation, Comedy, PG, Starring Anna Faris, T.J. Miller, SofĂ­a Vergara, Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Coolidge) - Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone's user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression - except for Gene, an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the famous code breaker emoji Jailbreak. Together, they embark on an epic "app-venture" through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it's deleted forever.
