New to Theatres This Weekend: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Gold, A Dog’s Purpose


Sony and Capcom have some nice “corporate synergy” going this weekend as Resident Evil: The Final Chapter hits theatres just a few days after the release of the latest video game installment, Resident Evil 7. This is the sixth movie in the long-running series and will supposedly be the last for Milla Jovovich although something tells me it won’t be the last for Screen Gems. Also in wide release we have Stephen Gaghan’s Gold, the prestige drama starring Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez (which is getting snubbed by both the Academy and critics) and A Dog’s Purpose, the Amblin family drama which is currently mired in controversy over the treatment of its canine stars. In select theatres, we have Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar-nominated film The Salesman and the Jackie Chan adventure comedy Kung Fu Yoga. What will you be watching this weekend?

Around the Web:

    So are you guys even considering watching The Final Chapter? Seems like it would be an interesting discussion.

  • Sean

    I don’t think so. Not dead set against it, but I’ve only actually seen one RE film to date.

  • Sam

    Get Jay and Frank to watch Toni Erdmann and review that.

    Or actually would be interested in hearing thoughts on Paterson if that’s available for you guys.

    Unless you plan a premium (and why would you for Paul WS?), don’t bother.

  • devolutionary

    A 160 minute German dramedy that everyone loves? Prepare for some Frankie Vadering.

    Frank will be away this week but Singe and Scott are coming by for a visit. We’re reviewing War on Everyone.
