New Movies of the Week 11/10/18-17/10/18

Things are kicking up this week with not only some good Oscar Bait material in ‘First Man‘, but also a weird firecracker of a film in ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’. Watching the trailer the only thing that may stay on your mind will not be the plot, but instead Chris Hemsworth weird dangling moves .

Weekend U.S. Box Office October 5-7, 2018

No matter if the film ‘Venom‘ was good or bad, it had many people’s attention to garner 80 million alone in the U.S. Box Office. Which still goes to show what an ‘IP’ can do without real buzz behind it to back it up. 

In second place is Bradley Cooper’s first film ‘A Star is Born‘ that also made a decent return and real early if you remember Oscar season isn’t that far away. So its foreseeable that by the time Oscar season heats up and word of mouth spreads this film could climb to 200 million if lucky. In comparison, at last place is ‘Predator’ that finally managed to make 50 million total after 4 weeks. Talk about a flop.

New Movies of the Week 27/9/18-3/10/18

Kevin Hart is back with another comedy this week, but this time he’s got company. Tiffany Haddish is the new kid on the block and has enough fire to keep up the eccentric Kevin Hart in the movie ‘Night School‘ that is the biggest release of the week.

Widows (2018) Trailer - Viola Davis Movie

This trailer suddenly became promoted to myself on Instagram one day and I was immediately confused about what I was watching. How did this conventional like story, with a star filled cast end up being directed by the critically acclaimed Steve McQueen and written by Gillian Flynn whose both work I admire from 'Gone Girl' to '12 Years a Slave' and 'Shame'. 

The images on screen with the pop ups of “made by” and “written by” just did not compute. As this wasn't the project I was expecting to come out of either of them. Maybe that's just me and there is more than meets the eye with this film’s trailer. Moreover, it maybe a bold move on their part to branch themselves off a little bit more towards the mainstream. However, what this trailer did make me immediately think of was the heist film 'Set it Off' from 1996 with Queen Latifah and Vivica A Fox. Not that their plots are identical, but maybe thematically a bit similar.

director: Steve McQueen

starring: Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez and Colin Farrell
