New to Theatres This Weekend: The Grudge


The first weekend of the year is usually a slow one for new releases, but you can always count on at least one horror movie to try and challenge the holiday holdovers. This year that movie is The Grudge, a reboot of U.S. horror franchise based on the 2002 J-Horror sensation Ju-On: The Grudge. There are also a couple of small documentaries in limited release but for now most of the attention will remain on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Last week’s new releases Little Women, Spies in Disguise and Uncut Gems will also continue to provide various forms of counterprogramming while 1917 and Just Mercy should keep packing theatres in limited release before going wide next week. What will you be watching this weekend?
