Coming Soon Trailers: Hotel Artemis, Ocean’s 8, Hereditary.
Who run the world? This weekend, we’ve got three film’s packed with leading-lady talent arriving at the box office.
There’s no shortage of strong female leads this week. Jodie Foster stars in the action thriller Hotel Artemis alongside Sophia Boutella (The Mummy), Sandra Bullock leads a team of jewel thieves who pretty much all have a Best Actress Oscar in their back pockets, and Hereditary looks to scare the pants off audiences with Toni Collette in the lead. The only film featuring a leading man this week is the limited release of the Mr. Rogers documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor.
On the home market its a brisk week with ten new offerings. Of course there is the now weekly event of a budget film starring Nicolas Cage, but there is also a pair of documentaries, a pair of thrillers, the requisite horror movie, and a historical drama about young boy trying to save zoo animals during the bombings of Belgrade during WW2. Lots to cover, let’s get cracking.
