The Blockbuster Report
Oh man, this weekend looks pretty abysmal for new releases. We’ve got Think Like a Man Too, which could get nominated for a Razzie for Worst Film of the Year, and Jersey Boys (yes, based on the musical), which, aside from the music, really lacks the heart and soul of the stage edition. There’s really not much in limited release either, as Third Person, starring Mila Kunis and James Franco, is nothing special and the same goes for everything else.
The one exception may be Coherence, an indy film by James Ward Byrkit (his directing debut), which is an interesting sci-fi flick that takes place almost entirely in one room. It incorporates themes of theoretical physics, comets, paradoxes, Schrödinger’s cat, and, as you might expect, some thrills and chills as the players find out that an astronomical event may be breaking reality. A solid debut for sure.
Other than that, if you are going to a theater this weekend, it’s probably best to spend your money on a holdover like How to Train Your Dragon 2, Edge of Tomorrow, The Fault in Our Stars, or something along those lines.
