Coming Soon Trailers: AXL, The Happytime Murders.
Alright then.

You can’t complain about a lack of variety this weekend…though the quality is an open question.  AXL is the story of a dirt-bike loving teen and a robo-dog.  Happytime Murders is a noir detective comedy with Melissa McCarthy and obscene puppets.  Papillon is the latest remake of a cinema classic, replacing Steve McQueen with Charlie Hunnam.

On the home market we have a restrained roster of six offerings.  These include a documentary ode to another Steve McQueen film, The Great Escape, and Sam Rockwell starring in Blue Iguana, a “pink panther”-esque heist comedy for wise guys.
