Movies opening in Columbia: Duran Duran, The Drop, Dolphin Tale 2, No Good Deed

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.

Opening Thursday

Dolphin Tale 2

Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick, Jr. and Ashley Judd star in this family sequel.

Opening Friday

The Drop

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.

 

No Good Deed

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.

 

Saturday

Mayhem: Mayweather vs Maidana

This is a one-time event showing at Regal Sandhill and Columbiana. If you like boxing then you probably want to see it on the big screen.

Movies in Columbia Theaters This Week: Sin City 2, Sharknado 2, Lemurs & more

If you like comic books and B-movies this is a good week for you. The follow-up to Sin City comes out as well as special one-night only showings of Sharknado 2: The Second One.

Here’s the full list:

Opening Thursday

Sharknado 2: The Second One

You probably know what you’re getting into with this one. This is only showing once so if you miss it it’s gone. Playing at Columbiana and Sandhill.
