New to Theatres This Weekend: Yesterday, Annabelle Comes Home, Ophelia

With Toy Story 4 still expected to dominate multiplexes and Spider-Man: Far From Home still a few days away, things are pretty quiet in terms of new theatrical releases this weekend. The biggest new movie in wide release is Annabelle Comes Home, the third spin-off in The Conjuring Universe to revolve around the creepy possessed doll. Danny Boyle’s high-concept Beatles-themed musical drama Yesterday also hits theatres this weekend and is a bit of a wild card but seems unlikely to have much of an impact but it does provide some counterprogramming. Marvel is also hoping to capitalize on a quiet weekend by re-releasing Avengers: Endgame one last time in over 2000 theatres to try and top Avatar once and for all. In limited release, we also have the epic sailing documentary Maiden and Ophelia, a Shakespeare adaptation with a twist starring Daisy Ridley. What will you be watching this weekend?
