Avengers: Infinity War is still breaking records and making tons of money at the box office. Black Panther, meanwhile, is still in the box office top 10 even though it was just released on home video, which you’d think would stop people going to it but apparently not. Since June’s first movies don’t look very compelling, it’s likely a bunch of March, April and May films will stay popular in theatres for a couple more weeks. Funny how good movies draw audiences in and keep them/Shane Hnetka
SOLO: A STAR WARS MOVIE Disney fired the original directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, halfway through filming then brought in Ron Howard to salvage the movie. Not a good sign, and the trailers have been underwhelming. Plus there were all sorts of rumours about acting coaches for Alden Ehrenreich, who plays everyone’s favourite space-smuggler. Disney hasn’t even been promoting the movie all that hard compared to previous Star Wars flicks. Kind of like they think it’s going to fail. With Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War already insanely massive hits, they probably could care less if it does. Still, pre-sales were great. It’s going to be interesting.
ACTION POINT Johnny Knoxville stars in this “comedy” about a man trying to create business in his dumpy, run-down amusement park/water slide thingy. Lots of people get kicked in the groin. It looks pretty terrible.
ADRIFT Based on a true story about a couple sailing across the ocean who run into a hurricane that wrecks their boat and leaves them fighting for their lives. The trailer gives way too much away.
HEREDITARY This horror movie won over critics and audiences at January’s Sundance Film Festival. The trailer even caused some controversy when it was accidently shown in front of Peter Rabbit. It looks nice and creepy. A family dealing with its grandmother’s death notices strange things starting to happen. It’s currently rated 89 out of 100 on Metacritic so it should be good.
HOTEL ARTEMIS In the near future, Jodie Foster runs a secret hospital for injured criminals. Sterling K. Brown comes in for help but he’s being followed by bad guys who want their stolen stuff back. I watched the trailer; it’s a little weird to see Foster hobble around like an old woman.
OCEAN’S 8 An all-woman version of the Oceans heist movies. Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter star. Gary Ross hasn’t directed much over his long career: just Pleasantsville, Seabiscuit, The Hunger Games and Free State of Jones, so hopefully he’s made a decent movie here.
RPL Film Theatre

6:30 THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT Catherine Deneuve stars in this Jacques Demy musical about two sisters looking for romance.

3:30 FAMILY MATINEE: THE IRON GIANT Brad Bird’s classic animated story of a giant alien robot that crash lands near a small town and befriends a boy. It’s great!
6:30 THE RIDER
8:30 BORG VS MCENROE
3:30 CINEMA CLASSICS: ALICE DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE OR POSSIBLY CHILDREN OF PARADISE I’m not too sure which classic film is playing — the downloadable May theatre guide tells me it’s Children of Paradise — an awesome French movie that’s like five hours long — but the Regina Public Library’s website says it’s this classic Martin Scorsese movie about a recently widowed woman who moves with her young son to California. Can’t go wrong with either.
6:30 BORG VS MCENROE
8:30 THE RIDER
