With Avengers: All The Avenging And Then More Avenging expected to continue dominating the global box office this weekend, the studios are using the frame to dump movies that — to put it kindly — won’t be missed.
I am all about putting it kindly. Well, except for Tully and that stupid, stupid twist.
Backstabbing for Beginners: After this, the last Underworld movie and The Secret Scripture, I will now actively avoid movies with Theo James in them. His woodenness only calls attention to the general lameness of this plodding docudrama.
Bad Samaritan: Dean Devlin pivots from Geostorm‘s grand-scale stupidity to modestly scaled dumbness for this thriller about a petty thief (Robert Sheehan) who runs afoul of a calculating maniac (David Tennant) and lives to regret it. At least it looks nice.
102 Not Out: Sony’s latest Bollywood import arrives in release without an advance screening. So there we are.
Tully: Young Adult power players Jason Reitman, Charlize Theron and Diablo Cody reunite for a dull, empty drama about an exhausted mother whose life is recharged by the arrival of a manic pixie dream nanny (Mackenzie Davis). But there’s a twist! And it makes no sense! You’ll be very angry!
Anyway, that’s everything that’s opening. Oh, and I’ve also got a look at this year’s Inside Out festival on the NOW site. Enjoy!
