Now that the Oscars are over, we’re settling in to what’s playing at theaters this weekend. The Film Yap’s Christopher Lloyd runs down the list:
Downhill — Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Will Ferrell star in this American comedy remake of a Swedish film about a couple whose marriage founders after he abandons their family during an avalanche.
The Photograph — Lakeith Stanfield and Issa Rae star in this Valentine’s Day romance about a new couple with time-slip issues.
Sonic the Hedgehog — The speedy video game mammal gets the CGI movie treatment, with Jim Carrey as the sneering villain and James Marsden as the human sidekick.
Fantasy Island — Horror studio Blumhouse tackles the smarmy ‘70s TV show in this humorous version of the island where your dreams, and maybe a few nightmares, come true.
The Last Thing He Wanted — Ben Affleck and Anne Hathaway star in this obviously-dumped drama about a journalist who gets wrapped up in the intrigue of the story she’s chasing.
Video: Ford v Ferrari — Terrific story of men and machines as American Davids take on the Italian Goliaths of Euro racing. Buy It.
