Sunday 1

RIDERS VS WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS After the first four weeks of the season, the annual Labour Day Classic looked like a potential mismatch, with the Bombers flying high and the Riders struggling out of the gate. But the Green & White have played much better lately, so this game might well be a classic — although, as we all know, a lot can change week to week in the CFL. In our Aug. 29 issue, Ivanka Trudeau, Cal Corduroy, Ron Mexico and Earl Camembert will try to make sense of it all in Rider Fan Forum. Mosaic Stadium, 1 p.m. See riderville.com.

Ongoing

THE TRIAL OF LOUIS RIEL History portrayed Métis leader Louis Riel as a traitor for leading the Northwest Resistance in 1885.

MOVIES

Opening

Friday 16

47 METERS DOWN: UNCAGED It’s a little late for shark week but here’s the sequel to the Mandy Moore 2017 horror. The sequel everyone demanded. Eyeroll emoji. In that film, Moore and her sister went diving in a shark cage and got stuck and attacked. This “sequel” doesn’t have any of the original’s cast; in fact, I’m not even sure the movie is set 47 meters down. The plot follows four women exploring an underwater ruin who run into guess what. Wheee.

GOOD BOYS Three grade six boys skip school to try and get into a party, leading to many wacky adventures. Nothing like an R-rated comedy where the main actors can’t see their own movie.

WHERE’D YOU GO BERNADETTE Cate Blanchett stars as Bernadette — a mother who was once an award-winning architect who finds herself in trouble with her neighbours and goes off on an adventure. From director Richard Linklater.

Wednesday 21

READY OR NOT The wedding night doesn’t turn out quite as planned for a young bride who finds herself playing a deadly game of hide and seek with her new in-laws. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s last film, Devil’s Due, was pretty crappy, so there’s a pretty strong chance that this is crap too.

Friday 23

ANGEL HAS FALLEN Gerald Butler returns to save the president for a third time. To change things, up he’s falsely accused of trying to kill the president and must clear his name and stop the real bad guys and — of course — save the president. It would be much more entertaining if he had just finally snapped and decided to kill the president.

OVERCOMER Another faith-based film. This one’s about a coach who’s forced to switch from coaching basketball to cross-country, and he helps a young girl become an overcomer — whatever the hell that is. Looks like crap but will probably make a few bucks.

Friday 30

DON’T LET GO David Oyelowo stars as a detective whose family, including his beloved niece, is brutally killed but, as sometimes happens, finds he can use his cell phone to talk to his niece two weeks in the past.  He tries to find out who killed them and how to stop it from happening, as one does. Sort of a variation on Frequency mixed with Happy Death Day.

Cineplex Flashback Film Series

NAPOLEON DYNAMITE This cult comedy returns to the screen on Aug. 23.

RPL Film Theatre

Thursday 15

10:00 SCHOOL AGE FILMS: NORM OF THE NORTH: KEYS TO THE KINGDOM Wow! I didn’t know they made a crappy sequel to the terrible Norm of the North, but they did! In fact there’s another sequel out later this year with a fourth coming next! What the actual? You know, maybe with summer drawing to a close it would be better to send the kids outside to play or you know, read a book in the library rather than watch this crap.

6:30 GIMME SHELTER Excellent documentary about a 1969 Rolling Stones concert where someone was killed in front of the stage by one of the Hell’s Angels hired as security.

Friday 16
