With a cloud over 'Birth of a Nation,' which awards contenders might avert #OscarsSoWhite3?

Nate Parker's blunt biographical drama "The Birth of a Nation" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, 11 days after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences came under fire for nominating only white actors for a second straight year. Parker's movie, which tells the story of Nat Turner's 1831 slave rebellion, earned a rousing standing ovation and immediate status as a front-runner for the 2017 Oscars.

'Hands of Stone' review: Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez do OK with bantamweight script

With "Hands of Stone," Robert De Niro officially enters his Burgess Meredith-in-"Rocky" phase, bringing the ringside grizzle and rumpled gravitas by the pound. In writer-director Jonathan Jakubowicz's peppy, none-too-probing biopic of Panamanian champion Roberto Duran, played by Edgar Ramirez, the "Raging Bull" Oscar winner (and let's not forget "Grudge Match") takes the role of legendary trainer Ray Arcel. He's the man behind the man. And good or bad, there's always a man behind the man in boxing.

Movie review: 'Southside with You' a perfect look at first date of future first couple

"Politics? Maybe," so shrugs a young Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) in Richard Tanne's "Southside with You." At the moment, he's got more important things to focus on - namely, his companion, Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) and whether they're on a date or not. Tanne's film follows the first date of the future first couple, "Before Sunrise" style. It's a little bit about politics, but mostly just about these two remarkable people, their life stories and what they want to do in the world, which at this time is simply "more."

'Tunnel' keeps things moving

Mainstream South Korean cinema contributed the summer's best action film with "Train to Busan," a kinetic kick of a zombie thriller that brought new life to the form. "Tunnel," also a huge hit in South Korea, doesn't quite do the same for the disaster genre, but it's a well-made, suspenseful and surprisingly moving twist on a formula everyone knows all too well.
