Only three new films are opening in Salt Lake theaters this weekend, a sci-fi thriller, a raunchy comedy-mystery and an offbeat fantasy.

“Annihilation” (R). A squad of soldiers enters an environmental disaster zone and only one (Oscar Isaac) comes out, injured but alive. So his biologist wife (Natalie Portman) volunteers to go inside with another expedition to discover what happened. With Jennifer Jason Leigh and Gina Rodriguez. Based on the first of the “Southern Reach” trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer.

‘Game Night” (R). This dark, raunchy comedy follows a group of friends who meet regularly for a game night together. When one night is devoted to a murder-mystery game, violent events point to a real crime going down. Or do they? With Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Billy Magnussen, Jeffrey Wright, Michael C. Hall and Danny Huston.

“Every Day” (PG-13). Sixteen-year-old Rhiannon (Angourie Rice) falls in love with the mysterious A (played by a variety of actors), who proves to be a traveling spirit that wakes up in a new body each day and lives an entirely different life. Maria Bello plays Rhiannon’s mother.
