Weekend Movies: De Niro In 'Hands of Stone,' The Obama Love Story & More

Most of the big summer blockbusters have come and gone, but there's still a slew of films releasing every week. Check out what's in theaters this weekend!

Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date, SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU recounts the eventful summer day in 1989 when a young law firm associate named Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) tried to woo lawyer Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) during a daylong date that took them from the Art Institute of Chicago to a screening of Spike Lee’s DO THE RIGHT THING to the site of their first kiss outside of an ice cream parlor. 

HANDS OF STONE follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year‐old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the WBC welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, famously saying the words “no mas” (no more.) Also starring Robert De Niro.

Starring Anna Kendrick, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Krasinski, THE HOLLARS follows a man who returns to his small hometown after learning that his mother has fallen ill and is about to undergo surgery.
