Okay let’s see: We’ve got underground suburban casinos, bathroom nail salons, closet massages, bedroom strip clubs, 11-year-old DJs, living room girl-on-girl MMA fight clubs, Will Ferrell in Italian women’s sunglasses, Amy Poehler in a cocktail dress wielding a flamethrower, and all-around bad math.

Jeremy Renner could probably do with some rehabilitation in the eyes of many. The long-time character actor was boosted to unexpected A-list stardom when Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” became an Oscar-winning sensation, but Renner somewhat squandered some of his goodwill by signing up to multiple franchises. Some (Marvel, “Mission: Impossible”) took better than others (“The Bourne Legacy,” “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”), but even the successful ones felt like they were wasting the actor’s talents, and some douchey press-tour statements and his ridiculous app didn’t help matters much.

The MCU films have often utilized side characters to act as the wingman/straight man to a film’s main hero. Some examples include Black Widow in “Iron Man 2” and “Captain America: the Winter Soldier,” Falcon in “Ant-Man” and Agent Coulson throughout Marvel Studios’ Phase One of their cinematic universe.

It’s rare for someone’s directorial debut to be “highly anticipated,” but Taylor Sheridan’s police/western hybrid “Wind River” definitely qualifies, given that over the past two years his scripts for “Sicario” and “Hell or High Water” have been made into excellent, high-class action films. Sheridan’s stock-in-trade thus far has been earthy procedurals, populated by laconic, philosophical men and women who solve crimes as much through winding conversations as they do through chases and gunplay.

Sicario” screenwriter Taylor Sheridan is on a roll at the moment, with Oscar buzz around this script for the excellent “Hell Or High Water,” and the sequel to Denis Villeneuve‘s drug war drama gearing up to shoot next year. And now, he’s taking his talents behind the camera. “Wind River” will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and reunited “The Avengers” stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen for a crime story set on a Native American reservation.

Denis Villeneuve doesn’t waste much narrative in “Arrival” in getting to the part where aliens come to Earth. In fact, it’s within moments of the film starting that the world is grappling with sudden, mysterious objects hovering all over the world. Governments are freaked, the public is spooked, and the military goes on high alert. And you can imagine how that must feel for a linguist and mathematician suddenly tasked with finding out why they’re here.
