In Theaters This Week (2/17/2017): The Wall, A Cure for Wellness, Fist Fight

Fist Fight

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.  February 17th is a four-day weekend for a lot of people in the States for Presidents Day (insert your own joke about the current one here), and there are three underwhelming choices to greet it.  Essentially, if you missed John Wick or Lego Batman (I’M GETTING TO THE REVIEW), that’s your best bet if you plan to head to the movies this weekend.

10 Famous Actors Hidden in Your Favorite Movies

It’s always fun when a director can insert a famous actor into their movie for a quick cameo in a way that doesn’t detract from the film.  That’s a fine line to walk, but when you get it right, you usually find out about it afterward and it just makes you like a movie you already enjoyed all the more.  The most famous recent example was the discovery that Daniel Craig was slipped into Star Wars Episode VII as a stormtrooper.  It’s something that you can definitely notice if you’re listening for his vote, but I had no clue that James Bond was wandering around Starkiller Base until I found out after the fact.  Screen Rant has put together a great video going over 10 similar instances in film history where famous stars or directors made a quick appearance in famous movies.

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.  August 5th signals the end of the summer blockbuster season with Suicide Squad, which looks like another disappointment.  Netflix is releasing a critically-acclaimed animated version of The Little Prince.  There’s also a Kevin Spacey movie where he’s turned into a cat.  All in all, The 2016 Summer Olympics are probably your best bet if you have any interest in sport at all.

Movie Review: Jason Bourne (2016) *Is Bourne Back?*

share

If you ignore the tacked-on Bourne Legacy, the Bourne series has been the standard in action-adventure.  It’s grounded realism and intelligent plots were a good part of the reason the Bond series had to be dragged out of the 1970’s.  Jason Bourne is the first film reuniting series star Matt Damon and director of films two and three, Paul Greengrass, in nine years.  Was Bourne going to be back to his old tricks, or should this series have ended with The Bourne Ultimatum?
