I almost never miss $5 Movie Night.
Because this special runs at my theater every Tuesday, I watch a lot of filler movies. Action flicks like Tarzan and Underworld: Blood Wars. Horror flicks like Don’t Breathe and Lights Out. And basically every cartoon about animals.
In between total rubbish, I enjoy plenty of good films. Here’s what’s on my docket for Tuesdays in 2017.
^ Lego Batman movie (February 10th). When you think about it, what Bruce Wayne really needs is some therapy. If he can’t have that, we’ll just have to settle for giggling at him in Lego form.
^ A Cure for Wellness (February 17th). Is there an evil secret lurking in this fancy spa? Probably, otherwise they wouldn’t make a movie about it. Oooh, I hope the secret is something really heinous.
^ The Circle (April 28th). Imagine if Google and Facebook merged into one super-company with a fondness for complete surveillance of everyone, all the time. Emma Watson is playing the protagonist, if that helps stoke your enthusiasm. Read the book or hit up the trailer.
^ Alien: Covenant (May 19th). Apparently someone loved Prometheus, because they’re making another prequel in the series. I’m hype for more badass alien-fighting. (This isn’t a real poster; they haven’t released one. It’s from here.)
^ Clowntergeist. Just kidding. I just needed you to know that this film exists. Intrigued? Read Birth. Movies. Death.’s entry about of this upcoming gem.
^ Thor: Ragnarok (November 3rd). This movie is directed by Taika Waititi, the fellow behind Things We Do In The Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. They’re offbeat New Zealand comedies. I have no idea what he’s going to do with the Thor property, but it’s going to be weird. Although there’s no official poster yet, there is this, which is all I need.
What movies are you looking forward to, Internet?
