I wouldn’t say there’s a blockbuster lurking among this weekend’s releases, but Netflix has an award-winning foreign film, there’s a slasher flick, and Johnny English is back. See the trailers below the fold.
Killer Kate! is a horror film about a young woman (Kate, obvs) who is invited to her estranged sister’s bachelorette party in a remote cabin in the woods. It’s a show of reconciliation and the women unknowingly walk into the lair of “amateur killers” (who, I guess, learned nothing from Blue Ruin).
Maria By Callas is “the definitive” documentary about the famed opera singer.
Hunter Killer is The Hunt for Red October starring Gerard Butler and Common. They’re in the Arctic and they discover a Russian coup. Man, Hollywood is creative.
Johnny English Strikes Again …If you don’t know who Johnny English or Rowan Atkinson is, is this the right blog for you?
Border is a drama about a border guard who uses her gift (smelling out people’s emotions!) to catch people. When a man has a scent she can’t recognize, she has to question her morals and her talent.
Indivisible is this week’s religious film, I’m pretty sure. It’s about an Army Chaplin, and the press material was at least a thousand words.
Don’t Go is a drama about a couple restarting their lives in a seaside village after the death of their daughter. It starts out By the Sea and then goes Don’t Look Now.
Burning is a drama based on a story by Haruki Murakami. So…good luck with that.
Viper Club stars Susan Sarandon (who I’m still kind of mad at!) as the mother of a journalist who has disappeared in “the Middle East.” With the help of a “clandestine group” of reporters, she plans to find him herself.
Solis is a thriller about a man who wakes up in space to find that his space vehicle is hurtling into the sun.
