New to Theatres This Weekend: 1917, Just Mercy, Underwater


After a pretty slow start to 2020, things are picking up a little bit in theatres this weekend with nationwide expansions for a couple of awards contenders and a few brand new releases as well. Sam Mendes’ acclaimed war film 1917 comes into the weekend fresh off a strong performance at the Golden Globes while legal drama Just Mercy starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx is going wide after mostly flying under the radar. Other major releases hitting theatres include the throwback sci-fi horror thriller Underwater and the R-rated comedy Like a Boss starring Rose Byrne, Tiffany Haddish and Salma Hayek. In limited release, also keep an eye out for the prison thriller The Informer starring Joel Kinnaman, Ana de Armas, Rosamund Pike, Clive Owen and Common. What will you be watching this weekend?
