New in theaters

“Furious 7”

What started as a series about street racing has become exponentially wilder and more ridiculous (in a good way). The latest chapter features the farewell performance from the late Paul Walker.

“Danny Collins”

Al Pacino stars as an aging rock star who finds a decades-old letter to him written by John Lennon in this dramedy from the writer of “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” (Drexel Theater)

Limited screenings

“Death Proof”

The Gateway Film Center kicks off its Carmageddon series with Quentin Tarantino’s wild half of 2007’s “Grindhouse.” All showings are late-night, and future films in the weekly series include “Drive,” “Repo Man” and “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”

Alive recommends:

“Wild Tales”

This dark (and darkly comedic) anthology blends six wicked stories into one movie — one of the best to hit Columbus this year. (4 stars, playing at the Drexel Theater)
