Now in Theaters: 5 New Movies for the Weekend of June 28


Welcome back to "Now in Theaters: 5 New Movies for the Weekend."

This weekend, Annabelle gets taken out of her case again for some godforsaken reason.


Annabelle Comes Home

At this point, I've lost count of how many "Annabelle and her Spooky Pals" movies there have been, but here's the newest one, and oh boy does it look spooky! In this one Annabelle GETS A BOYFRIEND?!? Not really, but can you imagine? In reality, the premise is that a bunch of morons take Annabelle outside of her case again, because hey, why would anyone leave the spooky cursed doll (with "DON'T TAKE OUT OF CASE" signs everywhere) in her case? That would be stupid.


Yesterday Trailer #1 (2019) | Movieclips

In Danny Boyle's new musical fantasy, a struggling musician (Himesh Patel) wakes up from a bus accident to discover that he's the only person in the world who remembers The Beatles. Now, with a little help from his agent (Kate McKinnon (do you get my Beatles reference?)), he becomes an international sensation. The premise strikes me as overwhelmingly silly, but I also really love The Beatles. But also, it looks stupid. But also, I kind of like Danny Boyle. But also, Ed Sheeren is in it, so eh. Maybe.



OPHELIA Official Trailer (2019) Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts Movie

Star Wars' Daisy Ridley stars as lady-in-waiting Ophelia in this female-oriented take on Hamlet. Intended to give Hamlet's lover a newfound degree of agency, Ophelia seems like it might be an interesting film for Shakespeare enthusiasts. But while I like the premise conceptually, nothing about the trailer strikes me as particularly interesting or exciting. The lack of sharp dialogue clips makes me worried that Ophelia might amount to a bland interpretation, even if its heart is in the right place.

The Chambermaid

The Chambermaid – Official U.S.

The Chambermaid is an observational, Spanish-language drama that closely follows a young hotel maid as she works her way through an adult education program in Mexico City. The trailer is surprisingly beautiful, infusing personality into shots of mundane tasks. Initial reviews seem very positive, so if you appreciate good slice-of-life movies and can find it playing near you, I'd suggest seeking it out. The Chambermaid is my PICK OF THE WEEK.


EUPHORIA Trailer (2019) Eva Green, Alicia Vikander Drama

I know a terrible trailer when I see one, and dawg, this is it. What is this movie about? What does this trailer tell us? I watched it three times and I have literally no idea why anyone would want to see this movie. It seems like Tomb Raider and the lady from Dumbo go to visit their mom...maybe? At a secret house? And Charles Dance is there for some reason. Everyone is sad. Very sad. Because of pain from growing up, or something? I have no idea, and I kind of don't care. Go ahead and watch the trailer. If you can make sense of it, please, send me your best summary.
