New to Theatres This Weekend: The Happytime Murders, A.X.L., Papillon


The summer season is finally winding down and it’s pretty clear that we’re getting into the sketchy dumping grounds that define the last few weekends of August. The only wide releases hitting theatres are the R-rated puppet noir The Happytime Murders (which is getting destroyed by critics) and the family action-adventure sci-fi film A.X.L. (which was not even screened for critics). Aside from that, the prison break remake Papillon starring Charlie Hunnam and Rami Malek is also opening on over 500 screens. Elsewhere, the internet-based thriller Searching starring John Cho is arriving in a few theatres before expanding next weekend. What will you be watching this weekend?
