Before the Flood, Leonardo DiCaprio

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  October 28th closes out the most mediocre October that I can ever remember with a weekend Tom Hanks can’t even save.

In Theaters This Week (10/21/2016) – Jack Reacher 2, Boo! A Madea Halloween, Ouija, Keeping Up With the Joneses

 

Tyler Perry, Boo! A Madea Halloween

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  October 21st has four new releases, but continuing the disappointing vein of this month only one has positive reviews.  I swear this will get better in November.

Trailer Time: Jack Reacher – Never Go Back (2016) *Jack’s Back!*

I don’t really know that people were clamoring for Tom Cruise to reprise his role as author Lee Child’s anti-hero Jack Reacher.  The first film wasn’t bad.  It wasn’t necessarily memorable either.  The best thing that came out of it was a good working relationship between director Christopher McQuarrie and Cruise that translated well into Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (McQuarrie is also scheduled to direct MI:6 next year).  For Jack Reacher: Never Go back, Edward Zwick (Glory) takes the helm, which is-honestly-the only reason I’m interested in this.  Zwick is one of the most underrated directors of the last 30 years, and I’m hoping that he and Cruise will deliver something that warrants a return to the character.  The cast, aside from Cobie Smulders (The Avengers), is thin.  The plot has Reacher returning to his unit only to be accused of a 16-year-old murder.  We’ll see if JR2 can outstrip the first installment when it releases October 16, 2016.
