He’s back… IN STUDIO… for the first time in a LONG TIME! Here’s The Film Yap’s Christopher Lloyd with a look at “what’s playing”:
New in Theaters:
Army of the Dead — While not phenomenal, “Army of the Dead” is a very flawed but enjoyable zombie flick that starts off a new era of Zack Snyder with a noticeable kick. Read more
Finding You — An aspiring violinist studying abroad in Ireland bumps into a famous movie star and begins an unlikely romance. Sort of “Notting Hill” in reverse.
Those Who Wish Me Dead — Angelina Jolie stars as a smoke-jumping firefighter (not a misprint) recovering from tragedy who takes a boy under her protection from relentless killers.
Spiral: Saw –While it’s commendable to harken back to the series’ roots, not even Chris Rock can save such a jarring, worthless sequel. Read more
Profile — A journalist investigating ISIS creates a fake Facebook profile, but finds herself having romantic feelings for her jihadi recruiter in this drama that plays out entirely on device screens.
New On Digital/Demand:
The Djinn — An absolutely unnerving fright show featuring Ezra Dewey as a mute boy who contends with an evil spirit to win his wish of gaining his voice. Read more
The Killing of Two Lovers — A contemplative, observational film about a fractured family teetering on the edge of violence, skillfully combining fear and hope. Read more
Cool on Streaming:
