New releases for the week of Monday, August 22, 2016

Plenty of choices for gamers this week, among them a big sequel and a yearly sports franchise. Adam Jensen returns in the sequel Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to show off some more augmented stealth/action skills. Fans of American football can dive into Madden NFL 17, with its new emphasis on running plays. Those on the PS4 get to try out Inside, the brilliant puzzle/platformer from the makers of Limbo. On the home video front we get the fantasy sequel The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Disney’s latest live action remake of The Jungle Book, the Ratchet & Clank movie, and the action/comedy detective flick The Nice Guys. On the big screen, Jason Statham returns as an assassin in Mechanic: Resurrection, three people pick the wrong house to break into in the horror film Don’t Breathe, and Robert De Niro manages a fighter in Hands of Stone. Off we go to this week’s list and, as always, release dates are subject to change.
