Coming Soon Trailers: Breaking In, Life of the Party.
Melissa McCarthy is back to college and a mother is out for justice in this week’s wide release trailers.
We’ve got one week left until the big blockbuster season kicks off with Deadpool 2 and is quickly followed by Disney’s Han Solo movie. That means it’s time to slot in a few genre flicks before the CGI tsunami! This week Melissa McCarthy plays a single mom headed back to college to relive her glory days, and Gabrielle Union plays a single mother fending off four ruthless burglars in Breaking In. I guess we’re going to be having a weird Mother’s Day weekend…
On the home market we are busy (and there aren’t even any documentaries or horror movies!) We have a pair of high school flicks, one a drama about rekindling friendship in the wake of tragedy, and a comedy about breaking the rules to get into your dream college. There is also a comedy about online dating, a sports drama, a thriller, and a tale of bloody revenge. You know, stuff mom will like!
