In the wake of Infinity War, Hollywood counter-programs with comedy, drama and a thriller.

Coming Soon Trailers: Overboard, Tully, Bad Samaritan.
Tennant is really taking to playing the bad guy lately.

The all-clear signal has sounded, though there’s likely to be fallout at the box office from the record-breaking release of Avengers Infinity War for weeks to come.  Looking to cater to audiences not in the mood for super heroic blockbusters, Hollywood has a trio of new releases:  a horror/thriller starring David Tennant, a comedic remake of the Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn classic Overboard, and a drama/comedy featuring Charlize Theron.

On the home front, we have nine new releases.  There are a pair of documentaries, a stoner comedy, a trio of horror films and a war drama based on real events set in Norway.  If you’re looking to stay in, or are just really interested in giving Danny Trejo another 5 bucks, the VOD market has quite a bit of variety this weekend.
