New to Theatres This Weekend: John Wick: Chapter 2, The Lego Batman Movie, Fifty Shades Darker


It’s the biggest movie weekend of the year so far as three major releases go head to head competing for your Valentine’s Day business. The Lego Batman Movie should come out on top without much trouble, considering that it counts as both a sequel to The Lego Movie and a brand new Batman movie. That being said, Fifty Shades Darker shouldn’t be counted out, considering that Fifty Shades of Grey had a massive $85 million opening back in 2015. The biggest wild card is the action sequel John Wick: Chapter Two, which will definitely build on the surprise success of the original film but could open even stronger than anticipated thanks to strong reviews and positive word of mouth. In select theatres, we also have the Indian comedy Jolly LLB 2 and the historical drama A United Kingdom starring David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike. What will you be watching this weekend?

    I saw JW:C2 opening night and it was definitely a Feast for Mine Eyes. May catch a repeat viewing. I loved it and I’m pumped for the next film.
