BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Don’t go into end of summer mourning yet, folks. There’s still got some time left to enjoy the rays until we reach that self-imposed line of summer demarcation known as Labor Day.
Labor Day must be getting close, because each week the slate of movies gets less and less exciting. This one is particularly bland. We’ve got Owen Wilson trying to get away from trouble in No Escape and Zac Efron becoming a DJ in We Are Your Friends.
The summer season is drawing (too quickly) to a close. There’ve been some highlights and definite lowlights. And as we get toward the end, the latter come much more into play. It’s not a totally lost week, but there’s less and less to get excited about in the theaters. We’ve got Hitman Agent 47 and Sinister 2 and American Ultra.
There’s a definite feeling that the summer movie season is winding down. We are without a doubt in the decline… but it isn’t all bad yet! We’ve got The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Straight Outta Compton and Underdogs arriving to screens near you.
While most weeks this summer have featured just one or two wide releases arriving in theaters, that’s not the case this time, as we have a big slate of movies hitting the screen this week.
During the summer season we don’t get too long to wait between big action movies and R-rated comedies. As such, this weekend we have the return of Mr. Ethan Hunt and a return for the Griswold family to the ever-elusive Walley World. We’ve got Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Vacation hitting theaters.
We are back for another week of movies, as the summer rolls on with three decent-size features hitting screens this Friday. We’ve got the family-friendly action of Pixels, the romantic drama of Paper Towns and the boxing thrills of Southpaw coming up.
We have two movies hitting the big screen this wee,k with a somewhat unlikely superhero and Judd Apatow making a return. We’ve got Ant-Man and Trainwreck both heading to theaters this weekend, ready to do battle for the number one spot at the box office.
The summer keeps on rolling on, and this week it seems as though there is something for everybody. With three movies on the docket, there’s something for the kids, the horror junkies and those who want to subject themselves to mid-summer sci-fi.
Everyone enjoying their summer? Well, the blockbuster train keeps on rolling this week, with two more big flicks hitting the screens. Hitting cinemas everywhere will be both Channing Tatum and Arnold Schwarzenegger making returns to familiar roles, as Magic Mike XXL and Terminator Genisys arrive set to hit theaters nationwide.
There are two very different kind of movies hitting this week. They both involve non-humans, but the similarities basically stop there. We’ve got Ted 2 and Max arriving in theaters - two very different kinds of best friends.
As we get into the heat of summer, we take a quick break from the blockbuster fare and dial it down a bit on the screen with a mix of family-friendly animation and a nice dose of indie coming-of age story. This week we get Inside Out with some Dope.
We have only one flick on the docket this week, but it’s one that’s been anticipated for years We are back in the world of dinosaurs as theme park attractions, as Jurassic World is arriving in theaters.
As the summer rolls on, we have three movies coming out this week. Vinny Chase and the boys back in Hollywood with Entourage, Melissa McCarthy is getting her Spy on, and we’re getting another chapter of Insidious.
It’s time for another edition of This Rotten Week, as the summer blockbuster season rolls on – as does the season of counter-programming films. Going head to head this week is the giant earthquake of San Andreas versus the romantic comedy of Cameron Crowe’s Aloha.
We have two movies on the docket this weekm as the summer starts to ramp into season. This time around we’ve got a visit to a futuristic world of tomorrow and another go around with the poltergeist.
On behalf of the whole staff of This Rotten Week (me), we’d like to extend a big Happy Mother’s Day to everyone out there it applies to. And to honor those mothers out there, I see no more fitting tribute than to talk about a Mad Max remake and a Pitch Perfect sequel. Happy Mother’s Day!
While we are coming off a big weekend that saw Hollywood finally deliver The Avengers: Age of Ultron to the big screen, it looks like we may be back to an uninspiring slate for the film world. There’s only one movie on the docket, offering a special ride along with Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara.
There’s only one movie on the docket this week, but it’s a big one. It finally feels like this is the official beginning of summer, as Ultron makes his way to theaters.
We have a pretty slow week ahead, with only two movies hitting the big screen. Both films look safe and geared toward the family or romantic crowds. We’ve got a little boy with some cool powers, and a woman who doesn’t age.
