Box Office Weekend: November 10, 2017

Welcome back to your weekly trailer revue! Last week’s winner-takes-all was Thor. This week has a bunch of stuff, which frankly, seems pretty boring. If I could ask you to think twice about your money, it would be Daddy’s Home 2. I have agreed already to see Lady Bird.

Thumper is a thriller about teens who sell drugs and drink beer in junkyards.

Hello Again is a film adaptation of the lauded musical.

Bitch is a dark comedy written and directed by Marianna Palka. Palka plays a woman who, stressed by her dumb husband (Jason Ritter) and many children, begins to act like a dog.

Daddy’s Home 2, the sequel to 2015’s Daddy’s Home, finds the Dads, good-natured Will Ferrell and hypermasculine Mark Wahlberg visted by their dads, who are more extreme versions of themselves, noted wife beater and racist Mel Gibson and John Lithgow. In an echo of the first film, Wahlberg’s Dusty must face his wife’s first husband, played by John Cena.
