Animated comedy, Holocaust-themed drama and one already-controversial science-fiction story come to multiplexes, while a 20-years-removed sequel and a weird supernatural drama hit the art house.

The Boss Baby (pictured) might be Toy Story for people who didn't understand the metaphor the first time, but its comedic charms carry it a long way. The magnitude of a historical tragedy gets short-changed when The Zookeeper's Wife takes the deceptive title of its source material at face value. Kristen Stewart's unique mix of strength and tentativeness elevates the odd mix of psychological drama and supernatural thriller in Personal Shopper.

Eric D. Snider sees Ghost in the Shell mostly as a dull police procedural with a few high-tech enhancements.

In this week's feature review, MaryAnn Johanson finds T2 Trainspotting revisiting the characters from Danny Boyle's 1996 original in a more complicated post-Brexit world.
