Wednesday, week #42 of 2020 (10/16-10/18/2020)
It’s up to a thieving character seeking redemption and romance played by Liam Neeson in Honest Thief to set our popcorn munching stage this weekend. 2 Hearts will debut to tug at the romantics heartstrings.
Also, there’s Robert De Niro and friends in The War With Grandpa and the music story Yellow Rose that premiered last weekend for those of us that didn’t have any theaters open nearby to enjoy.
Can’t believe we’re talking about *4* new movies to see in movie theaters. It almost feels like before the pandemic.
This trailer gives me a Taken vibe, especially when Liam Neeson tells the corrupt cop he’s coming for him. That calm “I’m going to F you up” is pure Neeson gold. No idea how good this will be, but it will be our first movie at an AMC theater in 2020 and our 36th new movie watched in theaters this year overall.
Lots of guys without shirts in the trailer! Based on an inspirational true story. Hmm … not sure what to say about this trailer. It’s giving me a lifetime movie vibe which means Kara will like it, but not sure it’s my thing. I do like a good romance and have enjoyed some lifetime movies, so maybe this will be a pleasant surprise, but anticipation is low.
The War With Grandpa (premiere 10/9/19)
The more times I watch this trailer, the dumber I feel for looking somewhat forward to seeing this. I think it’s the great cast of actors involved (Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, etc). With the $3.6 million it made last weekend with all Regal Cinemas closed makes me think other moviegoers were hopeful this would be entertaining, too. Could also be that it was the only brand new wide release movie available last weekend. Doubtful it outsells Honest Thief this weekend, but good luck to it!
Yellow Rose (premier 10/9/2020)
Sure has won a lot of awards. Wait, here comes border enforcement to shatter the country music dream. This could be one of those that I don’t think I’ll enjoy but do. Anticipation is low, but that doesn’t say anything about whether or not it will be good.
Which of these movies, if any, are you looking forward to seeing? Wherever you are watching movies, happy watching to you!
