MOVIES

September was a  pretty bland movies month. The biggest hit was The Nun, so that says something. But here’s something surprising: the animated Japanese film My Hero Academia: The Movie came in 12th at the box office with $4 million at only 535 theatres. It wasn’t too far behind Fahrenheit 11/9, Hell Night and Unbroken: Path to Redemption, which all played in 1,500 or more theatres. Not too shabby for an anime. /Shane Hnetka

Opening

Friday 12

BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE Drew Goddard writes and directs this crime drama about a group of strangers in a hotel on the Nevada/California state line. Goddard’s last film was The Cabin in the Woods, which I loved (despite Prairie Dog writers Paul Dechene and Aidan Morgan ruining the best parts for me before I saw it). I’m betting this will be great, too.

FIRST MAN A biopic about Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) and his journey to becoming the first man on the moon. That we know of. Personally I think the ancients had spaceships and we’re eventually going to find Mayan pyramids up there. Mayans aside, First Man is getting really good reviews from early screenings.

GOOSEBUMPS 2: HAUNTED HALLOWEEN In this outing, R.L. Stine’s horrific monsters run amok while kids try to save the day. Looks crappy.

Friday 19

HALLOWEEN David Gordon Green and Danny McBride (?!) tackle John Carpenter’s classic with this reboot/sequel that ignores all the other sequels and remakes. The Shape, a.k.a. Michael Myers, returns after 40 years and Jamie Lee Curtis is back to kick his ass. The film has been getting good reviews so it might be all right considering it’s the 11th movie in the series. Sorry, my bad: the second film in the series, now.

Friday 26

HUNTER KILLER A stupid-looking flick about an American submarine that has to save Russia’s president to stop a war. I thought they stopped making this kind of dumb action movie in the ’90s. Guess I was wrong.

INDIVISIBLE Another Christian flick. This one’s about an army chaplain. Looks like a cheap, made-for-TV movie. Man, there’s a lot of these faith movies lately and none of them are doing very well. Heck, My Hero Academia: The Movie beat up two of them in September.

JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN Man, I can’t believe how many Johnny English movies there have been. Only three, but that feels like too many. Anyway, Rowan Atkinson returns as the title character in another James Bond spoof. Wish he’d return as Blackadder.

6:30 REGINA SELECTS: CITY OF EMBER Ember is a 200-year-old underground city that’s dying, and two young people must unlock the mystery of a special box to save its citizens. This 2008 box-office dud was based on the popular book by Jeanne DuPrau and starred Saoirse Ronan, Martin Landau and Bill Murray. Reviews weren’t terrible. Might be ripe for re-appraisal.

Thursday 18
