New to Theatres This Weekend: Alien: Covenant, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, Everything, Everything


Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant arrives in theatres this weekend, looking to improve on the box office performance of 2012’s Prometheus and take down Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the process. With a title that ties it to the Alien franchise and a promised return to more straightforward scares, that should be within reach… especially considering the lack of direct competition. The only other new releases hitting theatres this weekend are Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and the YA romantic drama Everything, Everything. In select theatres, we also have Thomas Vinterberg’s The Commune, Wakefield starring Bryan Cranston, and the Steve James documentary Abacus: Small Enough to Jail. What will you be watching this weekend?
