In Theaters: May 18, 2018

There are no new Hindi movies releasing into Chicago area theaters the weekend beginning May 18, 2018, which is just as well since the two Bollywood films showing locally have been lighting up the North American box office.

The terrific spy drama Raazi gets a second week at the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, AMC South Barrington 24 in South Barrington, Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison, Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville, and AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge.

The enjoyable family comedy 102 Not Out carries over for a third week at MovieMax, South Barrington 24, Cantera 17, and AMC Rosemont 18 in Rosemont, and debuts at the Goodrich Randall 15 in Batavia.
