Weekend Box Office: July 27, 2018

This weekend: a Lesbian werewolf film, a Tom Cruise blockbuster, and plenty to stream.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout stars Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, and Michelle Monaghan.

Good Manners is a “Brazilian Lesbian werewolf” drama. Cool. (It’s getting good target=”new”>reviews.)

Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood is a documentary about Scotty Bowers, who was a special correspondent for Vanity Fair and a confidant (and sexworker) for the stars of 1940s-era Hollywood.

Puzzle stars Kelly Macdonald as a suburban mother who opens herself to the world when she discovers that she loves jigsaw puzzles.

Blindspotting is a Bay Area-set drama written, produced by and starring Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs. Diggs is a parolee, with only three days left on his sentence, who struggles admit gentrification and police violence. Pairs well with Sorry to Bother You.

Hot Summer Nights is a drama starring Timothée Chalamet as a Cape Cod teenager who gets in over his head when he decides to sell drugs to his peers.

The Captain is a German drama about real-life scumbag Willi Herold, a German soldier who impersonated a Nazi captain, made his way to a prisoner camp, and had 100 prisoners executed in eight days. After the dissolution of the camp he hanged a farmer and murdered five Dutchmen. This is going to be a giant no thanks from me.

Our House is a horror film about how you should alter the timeline, even if it’s a flat circle. (That Blair Witch nod is a nice touch.)

And today, on Netflix:

Cupcake & Dino – General Services …I’m totally into this.

Extinction, starring Michael Peña, Lizzy Caplan and Mike Colter: “A father has a recurring dream of losing his family. His nightmare turns into reality when the planet is invaded by a force bent on destruction. “

Orange Is the New Black
