Coming Soon Trailers: First Man, Bad Times at the El Royale.
Three new wide release films hope to keep the October momentum going against an unusually quiet home market.
Perhaps the smaller studios got wind of what a gargantuan month at the theater October is shaping up to be. That’s the only explanation for there being less new films on streaming this week than at the cinema. We have just three new VOD offerings against three new wide releases and two limited releases. While the new arrivals aren’t generating as much buzz as last week’s premiers of Venom and A Star is Born, the star studded cast of Bad Times at the El Royale featuring Chris Hemsworth should turn some heads.
