We’ve got some magic, some scary, and some down right badassery.
To be clear, I fully suspect that Fantastic Beasts and where to Find Them will take the box office top spot this weekend as the prequel to the whole Harry Potter franchise. Good for the whole family and just enough action to keep it interesting for everyone with a kick ass story.
If you’re a boxing fan, you’ve been looking forward to Bleed for This starring Miles Teller. Based on the true story of Vinny Pazienza who was a world class boxer who ends up breaking his neck in a car crash and just beating all the odds to try and make a comeback.
If you’re looking for a horror movie, The Eyes of My Mother has you covered. Kind of a B-list showing of actors, but the talent is all there and it’ll definitely give you a few jumps.
Finally, the one I’m mostly looking forward to, The Take starring Idris Elba and Richard Madden (Robb Stark, anyone? Too soon?) Basically an artist and a CIA agent go on an anti-terrorist mission in france. Even more basically: Idris Elba kicks ass and chews bubble bum, and he’s all out of gum.
Check out the trailers below and figure out what you wanna go see! Not many bad choices. Of course Doctor Strange and Arrival and Trolls are all great choices as well.
