IT’S FINALLY HERE, IT’S FINALLY GHOSTBUSTERS WEEKEND. Ghostbusters is all I care about, but in the interest of appeasing…people who don’t like comedies? (This blog will not accommodate fanboys demanding an all-male Ghostbusters.) …We’ll look at what else is out this weekend.
But first, Finding Dory remains No. 1, though The Secret Life of Pets did break records with its $103.4 million draw.
Ghostbusters is our “supernatural comedy movie” of the weekend. It really is all I care about. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones are the actresses bustin’ ghosts, and the film, written by Paul Feig and Katie Dippold, and directed by Feig, also has Zach Woods, Chris Hemsworth, and Cecily Strong.
Equals is a science fiction drama starring Nicholas Holt and Kristen Stewart as two people struggling with their emotions in a dystopian future where feelings don’t exist.
Free to Run is a documentary about the sport of running, and how it wasn’t an American obsession but now is. STOP PRE.
The Infiltrator was released Wednesday. It stars Bryan Cranston as a customs agent who uncovers a money laundering scheme connected to Pablo Escobar.
So Young 2: Never Gone is the sequel to 2013’2 So Young. The Chinese comedy is about a rich teenage boy who falls in love with a poor girl.
Lucha Mexico is a documentary about Mexico’s wrestling industry. Yes, please.
Cafe Society is Woody Allen’s new comedy, starring a bunch of famous people and set during the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Outlaws and Angels is a Western starring Chad Michael Murray as the leader of a band of outlaws who take a family hostage after the gang kills a U.S. Marshall.
Phantom Boy is a French animated film about a boy who can leave his body and float through the city of New York, the side effect of an illness that keeps him bed-bound.
Hillary’s America is a documentary by Dinesh D’Souza. This guy made Obama’s America, too. (Um, the Democrats in the 1800s are not of the same party as today’s Democrats.)
