In Theaters This Week (12/2/2016) – Jackie

 

Jackie, Jackie Kennedy, Natalie Portman

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.  December 2nd is a really odd release date in that only one movie is really coming out (there are some limited releases), and most theaters won’t even pick it up….so I hope you didn’t do what I did and saw everything over Thanksgiving.

Site Note: Back to Schedule Tomorrow

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  I needed a break from staring at a computer screen, so apologize for the lack of posts, but in the upcoming week look for a special epic review of The Arrival, Moana, Hacksaw Ridge and The Edge of Seventeen.  My Favorite Scene this week will look at The Big Short.  There are some new trailers headed your way, achievement/ trophy guide for Final Fantasy XV (which releases Tuesday), and remember to vote in the “Favorite Harry Potter” movie poll.  It will run until December 12th.  The following poll will mirror what we did last year with Star Wars Episode VII.  We’re going to have a community review poll, where you can rate your score from 1-10 after you view Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
