breathOh my. I returned and then promptly dropped the ball. Here are this week’s releases plus trailers for the movies that were missed.
6 Below: Miracle On The Mountain stars Josh Hartnett as a professional hockey player who goes snowboarding to Find Himself and ends up stranded in an avalanche. One assumes this film is served with a side of Jesus and “based on a true story.” DVD release for November 14!
78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene is a documentary about how The Shower Scene in Psycho impacted the film industry.
American Satan is a drama? film about an English-American band who makes a deal with the devil for their survival on the Sunset Strip. Denise Richards, Booboo Stewart, and Malcolm McDowell star. I like how they made Andy Biersack look like a young Billy Martin.
Bad Blood: The Movie is a horror movie about a woman who is mutated by a frog and destroys her…town? when she becomes one as well?
Deliver Us is a documentary about the possessed!
For Ahkeem is a documentary about a teenage girl, Daje Shelton, and her life in north St. Louis, one year before the death of Michael Brown.
Gnome Alone is an animated film about a girl who moves into a house occupied by gnomes. With voices from Becky G, Josh Peck, Olivia Holt, George Lopez, Patrick Stump, and David Koechner.
Happy Death Day is this week’s big horror release. A teenage girl wakes up on her birthday and is murdered. Like Groundhog Day, the horror resets each day.
How To Break Up With Your Douchebag is a Spanish comedy about a therapist who specializes in helping women break up with their partners…only to fall in love with a jerk.
Marshall is a biopic about Thurgood Marshall. Starring Chadwick Boseman, the film looks at Marshall’s early cases (defending a young, Black boy—whose parents are played by Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, Trayvon Martin’s parents), before he became the country’s first Black Supreme Court Justice.
Professor Marston & The Wonder Women is the dramatic re-telling of the invention and influences of the Wonder Woman comics. Starring Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton.
Swing Away stars Shannon Elizabeth as a professional golfer who escapes to Greece following a break down and subsequently mentors a young girl.
The Foreigner stars Jackie Chan as a humble businessman who hunts down the men who killed his daughter (because he couldn’t get justice!) He is pursued by The Man, played by Pierce Brosnan. It looks like a less infuriating Taken.
The Secret Scripture stars Rooney Mara and Vanessa Redgrave as a woman who has been indefinitiely hospitalized. Directed by Jim Sheridan and based on the novel of the same name.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri stars Frances McDormand as a woman who pays for billboard on the edge of her small town to condemn an ineffective police following the death of her daughter.
Tom of Finland is a biopic about Touko Valio Laaksonen, an artist whose homoerotic illustrations garnered international fame.
