MOVIES

Opening

Friday 10

POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU This might be an insanely huge hit. Pokémon is still going strong decades after its mid-90s introduction. For some strange reason the filmmakers decided their best course of action is to have Pikachu sound like Deadpool, which looks like it works. Yup, a live-action Pokémon movie — it’s going to be big no matter what the actual movie is like.

THE HUSTLE Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson star in this gender-swapped remake of the 1964 comedy Bedtime Story, which starred David Niven and Marlon Brando as con artists who rob rich women. It was remade in 1988 as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Michael Caine and Steve Martin. Judging from the trailer, The Hustle leans hard on tedious gender clichés (men: so overconfident and dumb!), but it also looks like a lot of fun, so maybe give it a chance.

POMS Diane Keaton is a retired woman who starts a cheerleading squad at her retirement home.

Friday 17

A DOG’S JOURNEY Despite the first film’s animal cruelty concerns, A Dog’s Purpose did well enough at the box office warrant a sequel about the dog that keeps dying and getting reincarnated.

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 – PARABELLUM Keanu Reeves wraps up his killing spree in this third and final (for now) film about an assassin fighting for his life after he breaks his old organization’s rules. Expect lots of shootings, stabbings, killings, etc. One the plus side, the dog gets to live in this one.

THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR Another young adult novel adaptation about young love facing terrible odds.

AD ASTRA I always question if a movie is really getting released when it’s only a few weeks away and there hasn’t been a trailer yet. For example, this sci-fi film starring Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones and Donald Sutherland.

ALADDIN Disney’s evil plan to make live-action adaptations of all its animated movies continues with this Guy Ritchie film starring Will Smith as the genie. How on Earth Guy Ritchie went from Snatch to Aladdin is beyond me. I blame Madonna and Sherlock Holmes.

BOOKSMART Two smart girls spend the last night before graduation partying in this comedy from first-time director Olivia Wilde.

BRIGHTBURN Okay, this might be pretty entertaining. What if a Superman-like alien crash landed on Earth as a baby then grew up to be evil? It’s nothing new in the world of comics but it’s a first for a film.
