NEW THIS WEEK: THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME, NEW RENTALS, AND MORE

DOUBLE AGENTS

 

 

Everyone imagines what it’s like to be a spy: karate chopping terrorists, infiltrating secret organizations, and jumping out of expensive foreign cars as they crash into helicopters. But what if you and your best friend had to be spies right now, with no training, no gadgets, and no idea what’s going on?

 

In The Spy Who Dumped Me, Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon) are two average gals on a daring (and possibly deadly) Eurotrip to clean up after Audrey’s CIA agent ex. They may be underqualified and under attack, but you can watch them fight, drive, and disguise their way to mission accomplished in up to 4K + UHD quality.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

There’s more to shrinking than swimming in cereal bowls. Justice is a dish best served hors d’oeuvre size, and Ant-Man and the Wasp are at your service.

 

 

As kids we’re told not to talk to strangers, and forgetting the lesson as adults can have deadly consequences. Unfriended: Dark Web dives deep into the dark side of the internet, with hauntingly real results.

 

 

Some adventures are too big to come back from. Coyote: The Mike Plant Story chronicles the zigs, zags, and final frontiers of a man who took American sailing where it had never been before.

 

STILL IN THEATERS

 

 

Casper is a harmless apparition. The ghosts of The Grudge are deadly demons. The fading phantasms of I Still See You seem to fall in the first category… until they don’t.

 

 Practically perfect even after 20 years

 

 

Magic never ages, and neither does this cult classic as it celebrates its 20th anniversary. It’s been two decades since the Owens sisters (Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman) outfoxed fate, curses, and killers with a little Practical Magic. If you’ve ever wished to spirit away a parking ticket or turn their ex into a frog, it’s time to revisit this cult classic and have a bewitching time.

 

 

MONDAY MOVIE NEWS

STILLS AND SPILLS

 

Loose lips sink ships, but this week’s crop of leaked set photos and movies in development are only building anticipation for what’s coming soon (and sort of soon) to a theater near you.

 

NEW PHOTO FROM MEN IN BLACK SPIN-OFF

 

 

The as-of-yet untitled new entry in the Men in Black series may still be in the early days of shooting, but the sight of stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson decked out in the signature MIB uniform is more than enough to get fans excited.

 

The two friends are no strangers to fighting aliens after teaming up in Thor: Ragnarok, and will no doubt bring more than just some comically-sized umbrellas to the paranormal project.

NEW PHOTOS FROM CHARLIE’S ANGELS REBOOT

 

 

If the latest images are any indication, Elizabeth Banks‘ new Charlie’s Angels reboot is going to stand out from previous versions even on style alone.

 

New angel Kristen Stewart, flashy in a tri-patterned sweater and dyed pixie cut, is mission-ready as she runs and guns across the storefront set in pursuit of some yet-to-be revealed baddies.

 

NEW PHOTOS FROM WONDER WOMAN 1984

 

 

The cat’s out of the bag on the new villain of the 1984-set Wonder Woman sequel: Kristen Wiig will portray the feared and feline Cheetah, Princess Diana’s most persistent and agile foe.

 

New set photos show the character struggling against an unknown attacker, possibly just before she discovers her catlike super-abilities.

 

AMY WINEHOUSE BIOPIC IS IN DEVELOPMENT

 

 

Audiences will be headed back to black as Monumental Pictures prepares to bring soulful singer Amy Winehouse‘s life story to the silver screen.

 

The late artist’s meteoric rise and tragic demise were documented in 2015’s Amy documentary, and the new film promises to bring further insight into the life and times of the smooth-singing legend.

 

WRONG TURN REMAKE IN DEVELOPMENT

 

 

All roads lead to the theater for horror buffs, because the cult favorite Wrong Turn franchise is getting a much-needed face lift.

 

The timeless tale of cannibals vs. unsuspecting travelers will undergo a modern update with a twisted take on the original formula, while iconic villain Three Finger may or may not make an appearance.

NEW THIS WEEK

 

 

They’re here, they’re weird, and they’re saving New York City one haunting at a time. The OG Ghostbusters may not have Avengers-level resources or skills, but when there’s a giant marshmallow in your neighborhood there’s only one team to call.

 

 

The boys in beige are back in business. When evil ghost goo starts feeding on New Yorkers’ negative emotions, it’s up to the original ectoplasmic exterminators to dust off their proton packs and school some ghouls in Ghostbusters 2.

 

 

Separated by a tsunami but together in spirit, this family will fight hell or high water to find each other again. When loved ones are on the line, The Impossible becomes anything but.

 

 

Four best friends, three months off from school, and one downright magical pair of pants. Loyalty, empathy, and forgiveness are the real treasures of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but the jeans don’t hurt either.

 

AROUND THE WORLD IN 3 GENRES

 

The subject matter and point of view couldn’t be more different, but these critically-acclaimed foreign films all jump off the screen from the first minute.

 

 

When five unknown bank robbers escape from the Honk Kong police on live TV, the shame of failure brings the full wrath of the vengeful police force down on their heads. Nothing is certain, but no matter who comes out on top it’s going to be Breaking News.

 

 

When I Saw You offers a Palestinian child’s eye view of war, uncertainty, identity, and life as a refugee. 11-year-old Tarek longs for the father and homeland he was forced to leave behind, and his journey to find them brings danger and understanding in equal measure.

 

 

Built on the bones of the French New Wave, Boy Meets Girl is a darkly comedic love story between two lost souls at the intersection of apathy and aspiration. As the two young protagonists connect again and again by circumstance, their separate frustrations add up to something greater than the sum of its parts.
