A critical digest of the week’s latest U.S. theatrical releases. Where applicable, links to longer reviews have been provided.
Having been left for dead in more ways than one after the critical and commercial failure of 2004’s “The Chronicles of Riddick,” Vin Diesel’s futuristic fugitive Richard B. Riddick gets his lean, mean, R-rated mojo back for “Riddick,” an improbable but very enjoyable sequel that recaptures much of the stripped-down intensity of Diesel and director David Twohy’s franchise starter “Pitch Black” (while treating “Chronicles” like the dream season of “Dallas”). Once again pitting Diesel’s eponymous anti-hero against human and alien adversaries on a rugged desert planet, this exuberantly gory chase pic won’t orbit the same box office galaxy as the star’s “Fast & Furious” series, but will have no trouble recouping its reported $38 million budget (one-third the cost of “Chronicles”).

Both a prequel and a sequel to 2007′s inspirational theatrical bomb (but DVD hit) “The Ultimate Gift,” “The Ultimate Life” once again soft-pedals gentle messages of Christian charity and family values destined to appeal strictly to the converted. Frequent faith-based filmmaker Michael Landon Jr. displays great determination, and even more folly, in his attempt to mount a “Giant”-sized family saga with the production values of “Sharknado.” Terminally dull result faces grim theatrical prospects on its way to endless Hallmark Channel reruns, where it will challenge even the most forgiving viewers to stay awake and alert throughout.
Picking up three years after the events of “Gift,” busy young mogul Jason Stevens (Logan Bartholomew, taking over for Drew Fuller) has hit a rough patch with g.f. Alexia (Ali Hillis), and only a thorough reading of the journals of his deceased billionaire grandfather, Red (James Garner, onscreen for less than a minute), can set him straight. »

Moving into the indie sphere, FilmDistrict has launched High Top Releasing to provide theatrical booking services to independent producers.
The label, a subsidiary under FilmDistrict, will provide “distribution-for-hire services.” Those include sales, in-theater marketing, rental negotiation and collections for producers who can provide their own prints-and-advertising and marketing.
High Top releases will not be counted as part of FilmDistrict’s box office revenue share.
First High Top titles will be “I’m in Love With a Church Girl” (pictured) and “The Ultimate Life.”
“Girl,” to be released in association with Mission Pictures Releasing, stars Ja Rule, alongside Adrienne Bailon and Michael Madsen. “Life,” the sequel to “The Ultimate Gift,” stars Peter Fonda, Logan Bartholomew, Bill Cobbs, Lee Meriwether and Ali Hillis.
“The FilmDistrict business plan, which calls for the release of six to nine films a year, leaves us capable of providing additional theatrical distribution services,” said Peter Schlessel, FilmDistrict’s CEO. »
