Coming Soon Trailers: Abominable.

Coming Soon Trailers: Abominable.

We’re up to our eyeballs in animated Yeti lately as Abominable hits theaters as the only wide release.

It seems that cartoon Sasquatch and abominable snowmen are all the rage these days.  Dreamworks is the latest animation studio to field a cryptozoological film, joining WB’s Smallfoot and Laika’s Missing Link.  Smallfoot received a warm reception.  Missing Link…not so much.  We’ll see how Abominable stacks up.  It has the advantage of releasing all by its lonesome this weekend, and to be the only new animated movie in theaters since mid August.

When do we get an adorable chupacabra movie?

On the home-front, we finish up September with nine new offerings.  Netflix has a new supernatural police procedural, while a few of the film festival aspirants find their way to VOD.  And for once, we get a week without a creepy clown movie!
