SUMMER PREVIEW: From ‘Avengers’ to ‘Minions’


Everything old is new again this summer, as many familiar characters and beloved titles — some more than 50 years old — return to the big screen.

That means superheroes, of course, and summer officially began with the second “Avengers” film (opened on May 1 and is still in theaters) and continues with “Ant-Man” and “Fantastic Four.” We’ll also see sequels to Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted” and the Channing Tatum vehicle “Magic Mike.” Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” will get a new sequel.

Great performances boost ‘American Ultra’


A soup spoon turns lethal in the unlikely hands of sweet and spacy stoner Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) in the violently paranoid action comedy “American Ultra.” Mike’s a lot like the spoon — harmless unless deployed in the right way — because he used to be a particularly effective “asset” at the CIA, a term used to describe highly trained super-killers. But the program was shut down, Mike’s memories replaced with serious phobias, and he was planted in a sleepy West Virginia town with a girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart). These days, his only experience with the law is regular visits from the local PD, due to his conspicuous marijuana habit.

When a young upstart at the CIA, Yates (Topher Grace), decides to permanently terminate Mike, his old boss Victoria (Connie Britton) goes rogue to save him — activating his deeply buried talents, which prove useful for evading the team of assets Yates has sent in hot, destructive pursuit. A madcap, murderous chase ensues, as Mike lays waste to every super soldier sent his way — as shocked as everyone else at his own bloodthirsty efficiency.
