New to Theatres This Weekend: Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, The Nightingale


The last of the major summer blockbusters arrives in theatres this weekend as Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw kicks off the month of August. Although the franchise has historically been a huge money maker, particularly overseas, expectations are quite a bit lower because due to the fact that this is merely a spin-off. Can Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham carry this one alone? In select theatres, IFC Films will also release the latest film from The Babadook director Jennifer Kent, an intense period thriller called The Nightingale. Meanwhile Neon is releasing the Sundance hit Luce starring Naomi Watts and Octavia Spencer. On top of that, it will be interesting to see how Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood holds up in its second weekend. What will you be watching this weekend?
