Welcome to a late edition of this weekend’s box office releases! Black Panther continues to dominate the box office, as it damn well should. For those of us who are looking for something else (but why, though?) here’s what’s new at the picture show.
Red Sparrow stars Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian ballerina/spy. The film is from The Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence and is based on the 2013 novel by Jason Matthews. Frankly, the more I watch the trailer the less enthused I am, and I’m generally amenable to a Jennifer Lawrence feature. Hope you’re not trying to see this one with MoviePass tonight.
They Remain is a horror/suspense film starring William Jackson Harper (Chidi from The Good Place!)and Rebecca Henderson as two scientists investigating a site that served as an encampment for a cult. It’s not getting good reviews, but “cult” and “Chidi” is all I need as sway for a viewing.
The Vanishing of Sidney Hall stars Logan Lerman, Elle Fanning, Michelle Monaghan, Nathan Lane and Kyle Chandler. Lerman stars as a teen who finds fame as the result of a best-selling novel and finds his life in shambles as a result.
March 5th is the release of The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes. The next day sees Borderliner and Gad Elmaleh: American Dream.
Hulu’s Hard Sun premieres March 7.
