New to Theatres This Weekend: Miss Bala, Arctic, Piercing


There is just one new movie in wide release this weekend as most studios have opted not to compete with Super Bowl Sunday. Miss Bala is Catherine Hardwicke’s U.S. remake of the 2011 Mexican crime drama, this time pushing a strong female empowerment angle with Gina Rodriguez in the lead role. In select theatres, we also have the survival thriller Arctic starring Mads Mikkelsen, and Piercing, the latest horror film from director Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother). Bollywood rom-com Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is also arriving on almost 200 screens while Dan Gilroy’s Velvet Buzzsaw debuts on Netflix after premiering at Sundance last week. What will you be watching this weekend?
