Coming Soon Trailers: The Nun, Peppermint.
A possessed nun, a wronged mother, and a race car driver are the focus of this week’s wide release movies.
September is not off to an auspicious start. Two of the three new releases are on our least anticipated list for 2018...and if I had seen the promo material for Peppermint when I wrote that list, all three would have made the dubious distinction. Luckily VOD is here to the rescue as fourteen new streaming options hit the market, including a trio from Netflix and a pair of intriguing westerns.
