New to Theatres This Weekend: First Man, Bad Times at the El Royale, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween
We’ve got three major releases hitting theatres this weekend but whether any of them will challenge either Venom or A Star is Born in their second weekend remains to be seen. Ryan Gosling stars in the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, which is expected to be an awards contender but may or may not be a big mainstream hit. Also hitting theatres we have the spooky family sequel Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, which is tracking far behind the original, and the original Drew Goddard thriller Bad Times at the El Royale. The latter has a star-studded cast but doesn’t seem to be generating much awareness. In select theatres, keep an eye out for Beautiful Boy starring Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet as well as Ike Barinholtz’s sociopolitical satire The Oath. What will you be watching this weekend?
