Ditching the action for neo-noir Marlowe, Liam Neeson steps into the role of Raymond Chandler’s famous detective, Philip Marlowe. It’s based on the 2014 novel The Black-Eyed Blonde by Benjamin Black, the alternate pen name of John Banville. Set in the gritty era of 1939 Los Angeles, dogged private detective Philip Marlowe is hired by a wealthy heiress to find her missing lover. Soon, he finds himself embroiled in a scandal that goes even deeper than he imagined.

Cocaine Bear – Release Date: Friday, February 24
Cast: Keri Russell, Margo Martindale, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kristofer Hivju, Kahyun Kim, Christian Convery, Brooklynn Prince
Director: Elizabeth Banks
When its trailer came out, Cocaine Bear quickly rocketed to the top of a number of must-see lists. The movie is based on true events that took place in Kentucky in 1985 when a bear found and ate 70 lbs. of smuggled cocaine. Unfortunately, the bear died of a drug overdose (as one would after ingesting 70 pounds of pure coke), but the focus of the film is said to be on the frantic search for the missing drugs. However, that doesn’t stop the movie from taking some creative liberties and ramping up the killer aspect of the coked-up and angry ursine. Expect lots of fun kills.
Jesus Revolution – Release Date: Friday, February 24
Cast: Joel Courtney, Jonathan Roumie, Anna Grace Barlow, DeVon Franklin, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Kelsey Grammer, Victoria Paige Watkins, Jean St. James
Director: Jon Erwin, Brent McCorkle
Inspired by a true movement, Jesus Revolution tells the story of a young Greg Laurie being raised by his struggling mother, Charlene, in the 1970s. Laurie and a sea of young people descend on sunny Southern California to redefine truth through all means of liberation. Inadvertently, Laurie meets Lonnie Frisbee, a charismatic hippie-street-preacher, and Pastor Chuck Smith, who have thrown open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to a stream of wandering youth. What unfolds becomes the greatest spiritual awakening in American history. Rock and roll, newfound love, and a twist of faith lead to a metamorphosis that turns one counterculture movement into a revival that changes the world.
