Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard head back to Isla Nubar three years after the violent Jurassic World tragedy to try and save some dinosaurs from a volcano eruption that will consume the island.

Bobby Cannavale co-stars. (June 22, Sony)

Male Shorts: International V1

TLA Releasing/YouTube

Love and sex between gay men drive the five steamy international short films in this artful compilation, including Travis Matthews’ (Leather Bar) Just Past Noon On A Tuesday, about two strangers bonding over a deceased lover, and Brazilian director Daniel Nolasco’s Neptune, about a swimming pool encounter turned obsession. (DVD, Breaking Glass Pictures)

Still stinging from a break up with his boyfriend, Bruno (Richard Garcia) attempts to track down his ex, Norberto (Eugenio Sanz), in Iceland, where he meets a guide, Arnu (Raul Portero), who decides to assist in his quest around the stark landscape. (DVD, TLA)
Female Trouble

Christmas and cha-cha heels will never be the same after watching John Waters’ sordid, campy, and deliciously twisted (and endlessly quotable) 1974 classic starring Divine as a trashy fame-seeker who goes to murderous lengths in the name of glamour. Criterion has loaded this 4K restoration with extras to boot. (Blu-ray, Criterion Collection)

Alone In The Game

This documentary explores the lack of openly LGBTQ individuals playing in any major North American sporting league—which includes the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and MLS—those who have lived in the locker room closet, and those who are striving to change the game for good. (June 28, AT&T Audience Network)
The Look: All Stars
