Although the title screams “reboot,” Charlie’s Angels is in fact a continuation of the narrative that began with Charlie’s Angels (2000) and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003). This time Elizabeth Banks takes charge as director, handling a screenplay she wrote from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn. The action-comedy follows the adventures of three privately-employed agents (Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska) who use their special training and sex appeal to protect the population from a dangerous technology. Djimon Hounsou, Sam Clafin, Noah Centnineo and Patrick Stewart co-star. Banks has a small role as one of the Bosleys. Opening wide.
