MOVIES

Our sister magazine in Regina, Prairie Dog, celebrates its 25th anniversary this issue. It’s awesome that indie mags like ours have hung on while so many other print publications have closed. If it wasn’t for them, I never would’ve had a chance to blurb all the talking chipmunk movies I’ve done over the years. So thanks a lot everyone, I really appreciate your efforts to keep us in business. /Shane Hnetka

Friday 16

BLACK PANTHER The next film in Marvel’s cinematic universe is set in the hidden African country of Wakanda, and sees its newly crowned king T’Challa (a.k.a. Black Panther) defend his throne against a long-time rival with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. It looks pretty damn good, and it’s getting awesome early reviews with a 100 per cent Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Although I’m sure that will drop — in fact, five bucks says Armond White will hate it.

EARLY MAN Aardman Studios is back with their latest stop motion animated film. This time director Nick Park (Wallace & Gromit) has a tale about cave men squaring off against Bronze Age humans who want to push them out of their valley home. Critics have praised the movie, but stop motion typically doesn’t draw audiences like CGI does.

SAMSON Oh goody, another crappy looking action film based on the story of Samson and Delilah. Where are Victor Mature and Hedy Lamarr when you need them? Okay, they’re both dead. But you get my point.

Friday 23

ANNIHILATION Director Alex Garland’s follow up to Ex Machina is this adaptation of a Jeff VanderMeer novel. Natalie Portman heads into a weird environmental disaster zone to seek a cure for her solider husband who’d gone into the zone earlier and emerged with a bunch of dead comrades and a mysterious infection. Looks awesome!

EVERY DAY This adaptation of the popular young adult novel follows an entity known as A who “jumps” into a new person every day. A ends up falling for the girlfriend (Angourie Rice) of one of the jumpees, and tries to form a relationship with her while in other people’s bodies. So yeah, pretty much your standard teen romantic drama.

GAME NIGHT This comedy sees Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman head to a friend’s for a murder mystery game night that turns ugly. Directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein wrote the solid Spider-Man: Homecoming, but also wrote and directed the putrid 2015 National Lampoon Vacation reboot. So who knows what this will be like?
