Box Office Weekend: February 23, 2018

This weekend we have two big sci-fi films at the box office, Annihilation and the Pacific Rim Uprising. I’m excited about both, and we don’t usually get this kind of treat in February!

Agent Mr Chan follows a debonnaire agent hired to find a “cyber goddess” after a “20 year banishment.”

Game Night stars Rachel McAdams and Jason Batement as a couple investigating a murder when their weekly game night goes off the rails.

The Cured is a zombie drama starring Ellen Paige.

Operation Red Sea is a historical Chinese-Hong Kong action film.

Curvature is about a woman who time travels so she can prevent a murder.

Hichki is an Indian drama about a teacher with Tourette’s Syndrome.

Half Magic stars Heather Graham, Stephanie Beatriz, Jason Lewis, Molly Shannon, Luke Arnold, Thomas Lennon and Angela Kinsey. It is Graham’s directorial debut and follows a group of female friends.

Annihilation is the film adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Jeff VanderMeer. Directed by Alex Garland, Paramount is letting Netflix distribute their version outside the US, whereas Americans can catch Garland’s cut in theaters, so yeah, I’m going to see Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Isaac kick ass in the terrifying Area X.

Every Day is a teen drama about a girl who falls in love with a spirit that inhabits a different body every day. Based on the David Leviathin novel.

Pacific Rim Uprising is the sequel to 2013’s Pacific Rim and is directed by Steven S. DeRight (and not Guillermo del Toro). Set 10 years after the first film, it stars John Boyega and Scott Eastwood. Charlie Day reprises his role!

The Young Karl Marx stars August Diehl as 26-year-old Karl Marx as he makes his way into exile.

Beast Of Burden stars Daniel Radcliffe as a man making a delivery for the cartel with a lot on the line.
