Shouting, the sequel.

This week other studios made sure to give Glass a wide berth.  After Split cruised to a dominant 40 million dollar opening last January, I would say they are wise to get out of the water.  It’s not quite as quiet at the theaters as it would appear:  Dragon Ball Super releases its latest animated feature in limited locations and Oscar winner Barry Jenkins‘ If Beale Street Could Talk begins a national expansion ahead of next Tuesday’s Oscar nominations reveal.

On the streaming market, we’ve got ten films making their way to VOD.  Notable entries include Jamie Lee Curtis in the political thriller Acceptable Loss, and Star Wars’ Hayden Christensen starring alongside Harvey Keitel in the apocalyptic Last Man.
