BOX OFFICE BREAKDOWN | A Cannes Release Comes Stateside
AUGUST 10TH-12TH | What's Coming to Theaters This Weekend?
Spike Lee brings us his latest in this romping crime flick.
In Popdust's column, Box Office Breakdown, we aim to inform you of the top flicks to check out every weekend depending on what you're in the mood to enjoy. Looking to laugh? What about having your pants scared off? Maybe you just need a little love? Whatever the case may be, we have you covered. Take a peek at our top picks for this week…
You probably remember when this was all over the news. Now you can be terrified in its fictional form with an eerie doc-like feel. Four high school girls in a small town in Massachusetts set out to debunk the myth of this terrifying creature but get more than they bargained for when one of them goes missing, seemingly becoming the latest victim.
Shark Week may be over but that does not mean there is a lack of movies to terrify you for going in the water. A massive creature attacks a submarine crew and leaves them stranded at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. It becomes a race against time as a rescue diver must keep his team safe from a massive, prehistoric shark.
The namesake here is a top-secret robotic dog used by the military with the help of artificial intelligence. When a mission goes wrong, he is sadly abandoned in the desert. Thankfully a young man finds him and the two quickly become friends, A.X.L. giving the man self-confidence and the man giving A.X.L. a reason to fight to stay away from the scientists who created him.
So if one of those ensemble movies starts adding dogs, that would be this film. A group of unconnected strangers soon start to develop relationships with one another through the actions of their dogs. It is cheesy as heck but sometimes you need something soft and cuddly and uncomplicated...kind of like man's best friend.
And our ⭐️ TOP PICK ⭐️ ...
Based on a true story, the film is set in the 1970s and tells the story of the first African American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs police department. He wants to make a mark on the scene and decides to undergo a mission to disembody the Ku Klux Klan. With a friend they start their undercover operation as the group is looking to become more mainstream.
