Coming Soon Trailers: Angry Birds 2, 47 Meters Down Uncaged, Good Boys.
Hollywood loads up another weekend with five new wide release films.
If last week’s offerings didn’t float your boat, no worries. There’s another five films looking to tempt you into theaters as the summer season winds down. Much like last weekend, variety is the spice of life. We’ve got Jacob Tremblay in an R-rated coming of age comedy, a sharky creature feature, and another animated film based on a cell phone game. You remember when Angry Birds was a hot commodity, right?
On the home front, we’re up to our eyeballs in movies as well. Ten flicks vie for your attention. We’ve got a Mummy movie. We’ve got a documentary about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. And we’ve got Velocipastor, the story of a clergyman who can transform into a dinosaur to fight ninjas. If that doesn’t convince you that we’re living in the golden age of human history, I don’t know what else I can do for you.
