Welcome to the first edition of "Now in Theaters."
Never again will you be forced to ask yourself, "What movies are coming out this weekend?" We got you.
The Kid Who Would Be King:
The Kid Who Would Be King | Official Trailer [HD] | Fox Family Entertainment www.youtube.com
What if King Arthur was...AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL KID?!?!? That's the premise of The Kid Who Would Be King, a modern day retelling of King Arthur with a Harry Potter twist. It's about a normal boy who finds the legendary sword Excalibur and, with the help of the famous wizard Merlin (also in the form of a kid), needs to form a new roundtable of knights to fight the evil villain Morgana. It's definitely cheesy, but the trailer looks kind of fun.
SERENITY Official Trailer (2018) Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway Movie HD www.youtube.com
In this thriller, Matthew McConaughey plays a fishing boat captain whose ex-wife (Anne Hathaway) asks him to kill her abusive new husband. Honestly, this one just seems bland. The trailer feels generic and unexciting, which is surprising for a movie starring such talented actors. Expect some characters you don't care about to cross and double-cross and triple-cross each other in predictable ways. Maybe wait for Netflix.
In Like Flynn:
IN LIKE FLYNN - Official US Trailer www.youtube.com
In Like Flynn is a biopic about Errol Flynn, the famous Hollywood Golden Age actor best known for playing Robin Hood in 1963's The Adventures of Robin Hood. Based on the trailer, In Like Flynn seems to portray its subject as more of a legend than a man, content to mythologize Flynn rather than deconstructing his humanity. That being said, if you're into old Hollywood films, this one might be an especially fun romp.
Never Look Away:
Never Look Away | Official US Trailer HD (2018) www.youtube.com
This is a limited release run of Germany's entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards. Never Look Away (Werk ohne Autor) is a drama about two art students, Kurt and Ellie, who fall in love in post-WWII Germany, and their relationship with Ellie's father, a doctor who participated in the Nazi eugenics program. As you can probably gauge from the premise, this is sure to be a light, feel good film that is sure to bring a smile to your face. Just kidding; bring tissues.
JIHADISTS Documentary Trailer | In Theaters January 25, 2019 www.youtube.com
A French documentary that asks the question, "What do Jihadists actually have to say?" It's an interesting look at fundamentalist terrorism that attempts to go beyond "they're evil monsters," parsing their ideology in pursuit of their motivations. That's not to say they're sympathetic. This one might make you angry and doesn't necessarily provide answers either. But sometimes insight can be gained simply by staring into the eyes of horrible men.

Even to this day, "Dark Tournament" remains the defining shonen "Tournament Arc."
Oftentimes, it's impossible to separate the quality of the anime we grew up watching from the sense of nostalgia those series evoke.
Case in point: Dragon Ball Z. Historically, DBZ is likely the most influential anime series of all time, both redefining the shonen genre for every series that came after it and introducing an entire generation of Western kids to Japanese animation through the legendary Funimation dub on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Chances are high that if you meet someone who loves anime and grew up in the late '90s or early 2000s, they'll have a deeply personal bond with DBZ.
At the same time, it's hard to argue that DBZ holds up in the modern day, especially for new viewers coming in with fresh eyes. The pacing of the original series is super slow, the fights drag out forever, and while DBZ created so many of shonen's most prevalent tropes ("This isn't even my final form!"), almost everything DBZ ever did has since been done better by other series.
About a year after being accused of selling furniture to ICE detention centers, e-commerce site Wayfair is in another controversy.
Wayfair, the e-commerce website beloved by millennials on a budget who don't want their apartments to look just like IKEA showrooms, is no stranger to controversy.
Last summer, employees of the company organized a protest after allegations surfaced that Wayfair had sold $200,000 worth of furniture to border detention facilities. Now, Wayfair is being suspected of trafficking missing children in their furniture.
