Up next, teenagers get into deep trouble in “47 Meters Down: Uncaged.”

Preteen pals turn superbad in “Good Boys.” Seth Rogen and his “Sausage Party” posse are behind this one.

Cate Blanchett escapes the ordinary in “Where’d You Go Bernadette?” The Oscar-winner stars as an avant garde architect who steps away from her profession. She’s devoted herself to motherhood, but with her daughter getting ready to go to college, Blanchett gets that old creative itch and signs-up for a project at the bottom of the earth. “Where’d You Go Bernadette?” is rated PG-13.
Finally, “Blinded by the Light” tells the story of Javed, a British teen of Pakistani descent, growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when a classmate introduces him to the music of “The Boss,” Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in Springsteen’s powerful lyrics. Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams and also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice. “Blinded by the Light” is rated PG-13.
