I really feel like movie studios are just releasing their dead weight before the fall kicks in. I don’t see much in the way of anything really great or a potential blockbuster until The Boxtrolls come out on September 26. At any rate, here’s what’s coming out this week.
Wednesday Night Only
Duran Duran: Unstaged
Let’s be honest, unless you’re over 40 you probably have little desire to see this. But what if I told you it was directed by David Lynch? Ok, probably same. I’ve been trying to figure out why this live concert film from 2011 is being released now. Turns out Duran Duran is releasing a new album soon. So I guess that explains it? It’s showing tonight at 7:30 at Carmike 14.
Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick, Jr. and Ashley Judd star in this family sequel.
Magic in the Moonlight ends its short run at The Nick to make way for this crime drama. From Belgian director Michael R. Roskam, this movie stars James Gandolfini and John Hardy wrapped up in some mob-like action.
Idris Elba is usually great, whether as Heimdall in Thor or as Detective John Luther in the British series Luther. Hopefully this is no exception, but it does look like a dark and scary movie and he definitely is not playing a good guy.
