New to Theatres This Weekend: Ocean’s 8, Hereditary, Hotel Artemis


After a handful of smaller releases last weekend, Warner Brothers hopes to bring the box office back to life with Ocean’s 8 this weekend. While Steven Soderbergh’s three Ocean’s films were never really giant blockbusters (they all opened in the high $30 million range), there is a possibility that this one could go a bit higher by catering to an underserved female audience. Other alternatives in wide release include the A24 horror movie Hereditary, which is riding a wave of ecstatic reviews, and the John Wick-esque action-thriller Hotel Artemis. In select theatres, be on the lookout for Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, the acclaimed Mr. Rogers documentary. What will you be watching this weekend?

    Just got back from Hereditary…

    My screening was about twenty people, deathly quiet throughout the entirety, and I was on pins & needles due to the score. Lovely subtle details and Toni Collette was wonderfully raw.

    Not sure if the ending exactly sticks the landing, but definitely 8/10 for me.
