Set in a near-future version of America that is coming apart at the seams, “Bushwick” is a gritty, gloomy action flick that employs single-shot filming and breakneck pacing to deliver a gripping tale of social collapse.

Home from college and planning on visiting her grandmother, Lucy (Brittany Snow) steps out of a New York subway station and finds herself in the middle of an urban bloodbath.

It’s been quite a while since Florida’s own Wesley Snipes snagged a leading role in anything other than a direct-to-DVD film.

Thanks to a collaboration between Erebus Pictures and WWE Studios, Snipes is back on the big screen starring in “Armed Response,” a low-budget science fiction thriller opening in limited release Aug. 4.

Locally, the film will be shown at AMC Sundial, 151 Second Ave. N., St. Petersburg.

The film is a mash-up of procedural crime dramas, first-person shooter games and found-footage horror with a sci-fi twist. It’s as if “NCIS” and “The X-Files” had a one-night stand and “Armed Response” was the unanticipated love child. That may not appeal to everyone, but it’s not a bad premise.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” apparently fared well at the box office this weekend.

According to Box Office Mojo, the film delivered a $117 million opening domestically. That’s not too shabby for the web-headed wall-crawler, especially since this is the third cinematic foray for the character in recent memory.

Let’s take a quick look at recent history.

Back in 2002, Sam Raimi directed “Spider-Man,” with Tobey Maguire playing the titular role. Two sequels followed, including “Spider-Man 2” in 2004; and “Spider-Man 3” in 2007. Additional films in this series were in the works, but disagreements between Sony and Raimi eventually saw those scrapped.

The superhero war continues, its skirmishes fought on the big screen.

Warner Bros. Pictures keeps churning them out, movie after movie, tenaciously trying to catch up to the lucrative commercial juggernaut of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe and best its longtime rival in terms of quality and box office revenue. The most recent chapter in this ongoing competition showcases DC’s iconic character Wonder Woman in her own feature film.

Thanks in large part to Gal Gadot’s exceptional performance in the lead role, “Wonder Woman” is by far the best film audiences have seen in the DC Extended Universe. In a world where moviegoers are growing weary of superhero origin stories, “Wonder Woman” is as stylish, dazzling and action-packed as it is heartfelt and inspirational.

There’s this really good mom-and-pop pizzeria in your neighborhood - you’ve been there before, and the pizza is excellent. Tonight, you decide to try the calzone.

When it hits the table, you are stunned: The crispy, puffy crescent is bursting at the seams, oozing creamy mozzarella and ricotta, sausage and pepperoni. It’s an overstuffed, scrumptious masterpiece.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is that calzone - better in many ways than what came before it, but quite possibly too much to digest all at once.
