New to Theatres This Weekend: Sonic the Hedgehog, Fantasy Island, Downhill


Happy Valentine’s Day, folks! It’s bound to be a busy weekend at multiplexes and we’ve got quite a few new releases hitting theatres in order to facilitate date night. Ironically, the biggest release of the week is not a particularly romantic one even if you’re a gamer: Sonic the Hedgehog, based on the classic Sega video game series. Other major releases include the Blumhouse horror TV adaptation Fantasy Island, romantic drama The Photograph starring LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae, and Downhill, the Force Majeure remake starring Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite is also expanding to over 2000 theatres following its Best Picture win. In select theatres, we also have the acclaimed French film Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Ordinary Love starring Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville and Buffaloed starring Zoey Deutch. A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon is also arriving in select theatres and on Netflix. What will you be watching this weekend?
