This weekend at theaters, we get the sequel to a popular 2010 horror hit by the director of this summer's smash, 'The Conjuring,' plus a return to gangster life for Robert De Niro (though not exactly 'Goodfellas' or 'Godfather' territory). Happy Friday the 13th!
The fall movie season generally sees a huge rush of films aiming for Oscar gold. Well, looks like that'll have to wait at least one week. They're probably just scared of Vin Diesel. (To be clear, there are a bunch of smaller movies coming out, but in very limited release.)
Two wildly different offerings hit theaters this weekend. The first is a sci-fi/action/thriller about monsters fighting giant robots; the other is the sequel to a surprisingly successful comedy featuring a set of four men acting like children.
The moviegoing weekend gets off to a mid-week start with Independence Day falling on a Thursday. On Wednesday, two big-time blockbuster wannabes hit theaters—one featuring a beloved summer-movie star of years past, the other a sequel to a 2010 animated smash.
