Opening This Week - March 3, 2017


Wide Releases:


Before I Fall

Directed by: Ry Russo-Young
Runtime: 1hr, 39mins
Drama, Mystery
PG-13
Trailer

Starring: Zoey Deutch, Liv Hewson, Jennifer Beals




So, here's a story about a person re-living the same day over and over again until they learn an important life lesson that entirely changes their outlook on life and thus the way the day plays out. That should sound familiar. We, of course, got a romantic comedy version of this story in Groundhog Day, an action/sci-fi version in Edge of Tomorrow, and now there's a teen drama version in Before I Fall (not to mention the countless TV shows that have done episodes with this general idea).

R
Trailer

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant,




In what is said to be Hugh Jackman’s final film portraying the beloved X-Men character, Wolverine, fans are finally getting the gritty, violent, R-rated movie they’ve always wanted. To its credit, it also looks like a more character driven drama than past Wolverine outings. And so far it’s been a pleasant surprise to finally see one of these movies getting some critical praise. So far it has a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. If it is indeed a good film, I'll be glad to see Jackman go out on a high note.

However, a mysterious note urges him to go to the abandoned shack where the terrible crime occurred. There he meets three strangers who change his life forever.
