It’s that weekend, horror movie fans. The sequel to the It remake is finally here. Called It Chapter Two, the movie follows the kids now that they’re grown up, more or less. And considering that there aren’t any real contenders coming out this weekend, Chapter Two should easily steal the top spot at the box office from Angel Has Fallen.
Bad Boys for Life
I’m acutely aware that Bad Boys for Life might not be a good movie. It’s coming over a decade and a half after the first sequel, and who knows if the cast can recapture the magic. Then again, I don’t need it to be an Oscar contender to have fun. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back, they’re clearly too old for this shit, and I’m definitely watching it. Bad Boys for Life hits theaters on January 17th.
Between Two Ferns: The Movie
Out in a couple of weeks on Netflix, Between Two Ferns: The Movie stars Zach Galifianakis as he attempts to leverage his ridiculous online interview series to become a real talk show host. Good luck to him.
Birds of Prey
Originally meant to debut before It Chapter Two, this first teaser for Birds of Prey leaked online a few days ago, giving us a brief look at the Harley Quinn movie, with Margot Robbie reprising her role from Suicide Squad.
