This Month’s Movies – February 2018

February 9th

This week sees the release of a few noteworthy movies. First off, this week we have Fifty Shades Freed. This is supposedly the last film of the series. Although given how financially successful these movies have been and the fact that the author has recently released a fourth book, my guess is it won’t be long until we hear from this franchise again.

Also out this week is The 15:17 to Paris. The film by Clint Eastwood follows the real life story of three American soldiers who thwarted a terrorist attack on board a train to Paris. The film chronicles the life of these three men from childhood to that fateful day on the train. Interestingly enough, Eastwood made the decision to have the real life soldiers play themselves in the film. It is rare that Clint Eastwood disappoints, so you can bet that I am looking forward to this one.

Also out this week we have Peter RabbitPadman, Monster Family, and The Female Brain.

February 16th

Probably everyone’s most anticipated release this month is Black Panther, the latest addition to Marvel’s ever expanding cinematic universe. With Creed writer and director Ryan Coogler at the helm and a ton of powerhouse actors like Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, and Lupita Nyong’o, this is one Marvel movie you don’t want to miss out on. 

Out the same week, we have the film Early Man, which tell the story of Dug, a neanderthal, from an oppressive bronze age city led by the evil Lord Nooth. The film is brought to us by the same people who gave us Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run. It’s guaranteed to be a great film for families everywhere.

Finally, I will never miss out on the chance to plug a Nicolas Cage movie. This week we have the film Looking Glass, in which Nicolas Cage plays a motel owner who discovers a one way mirror in located in one of his motel rooms. After spying on a woman and her lover one night, said woman ends up dead the next day, leaving Cage as the primary suspect.

We also have SamsonThe PartyNostalgia, and Irreplaceable You.

February 23rd

Annihilation is probably my second most anticipated movie for this month. Based on the novel of the same name, the film stars Natalie Portman as a biologist sent out to explore this strange phenomenon named “the shimmer”. It’s this unsettling, ever expanding forest that threatens to change our entire world. The film is written and directed by Alex Garland who made the amazing science fiction film Ex Machina.

Finally, we have the film Game Night also coming out this week. Starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, the film is basically David Fincher’s The Game but as a dark comedy as opposed to thriller.

Every DayThe CuredDeath House, and Survivors Guide to Prison are also due out this week.
