Next 3 Action Thrillers for Adults: 'Shaft,' 'Anna,' 'The Kitchen'

Keanu Reeves returns in John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum as an indefatigable assassin who just wants to enjoy life with his canine companion. Before that can happen, though, he needs to avoid the hit men and women from around the world who want nothing more than to assassinate the master international assassin.

The spectacular action sequences in the thriller are designed especially for adults. Are there more thrillers for adults on the theatrical horizon? Yes! Here are three.

 

Shaft

Samuel L. Jackson returns as famed private investigator John Shaft, joined this time by his son (Jessie T. Usher) and father (Richard Roundtree). Regina Hall and Alexandra Shipp play key roles in director Tim Story's new-fashioned update of a criminal detective yarn.

The Kitchen

Melissa McCarthy gave an outstanding dramatic performance in Can You Ever Forgive Me? (above), but she takes a sharp turn toward danger in her next movie. She stars with Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss as housewives in the 1970s whose husbands are sent to jail because of their involvement with organized crime. The women band together to start running things, which includes (literally) eliminating the competition. Domhnall Gleeson and James Badge Dale also star.
