MOVIES

Opening

Friday 8

DOCTOR SLEEP This Tom Flanagan movie is adapted from Stephen King’s 2013 sequel to The Shining. Ewan McGregor stars as Danny — sorry, Dan Torrence. Dan meets a teenager (Kyliegh Curran) with similar powers who has been targeted by an evil group that feeds off people with shining powers. It’s been getting good reviews, but I can’t imagine it coming close to Kubrick’s The Shining.

LAST CHRISTMAS Perpetually cursed with bad luck, Emilia Clarke is working as an elf in a store. Then she meets Henry Golding. Together, they embark on a global orgy of carnage — oh sorry, that’s from my Halloween blurb last issue. Actually, I don’t know what they do. But Emma Thompson co-wrote the film and also stars.

MIDWAY How on Earth does Roland Emmerich still get to make movies?!? From Universal Soldier and Godzilla to Stonewall and Independence Day: Resurgence, it’s one crap movie after another. I don’t even think the last couple made any money. So what does Lionsgate do? Hand him the keys to a pivotal WWII naval battle between the U.S. and Japan. Really?

PLAYING WITH FIRE It seems like every wrestler who becomes an action star has to make one crappy kids movie. Hulk Hogan did it. The Rock did it. Now, it’s John Cena’s turn.

Friday 15

CHARLIE’S ANGELS Elizabeth Banks stars as Bosley, and Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska are the ass-kicking angels.

FORD V FERRARI Director James Mangold follows up Logan with this film about the Ford/Ferrari rivalry during the 1966 Le Mans 24 Hour Race. Having lost six straight to Ferrari, Ford hires Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) to design a new car. To drive it, Shelby recruits eccentric British engineer Ken Miles (Christian Bale). I’m not a fan of car-racing myself. But this looks pretty bon.

THE GOOD LIAR Con man Ian McKellan tries to fleece Helen Mirren — only to find out he’s bitten off more than he can chew.

Friday 22

A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD Tom Hanks stars as PBS icon Fred Rogers in this bio-pic about a reporter (Matthew Rhys) interviewing him for a 1998 Esquire feature.

FROZEN II Disney has had five movies break a billion this year (along with a sixth they helped make). It’s a lock this sequel will do the same.

21 BRIDGES Chadwick Boseman stars as a Manhattan cop hunting two men who killed a bunch of cops in a robbery gone wrong — or maybe not. To catch them, police shut the island down.
