A highly entertaining franchise film and a solid feature directorial debut for star Michael B. Jordan, Creed III can be seen both as character progression and as the closing of a book.
A smart, yet simple blend of suspense and sci-fi, director and co-writer Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr.’s first feature Black Box stitches together some familiar genre tropes into a thoughtful and refreshing package.
This is apparently a bad week to be a movie fan, or a movie critic for that matter. New films opening this weekend include three big duds, including: the underwater thriller, Sanctum; the college thriller, The Roommate, starring Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly; and the psychological drama, Frankie and Alice, starring Halle Berry.
New in theatres this Friday: Russell Crowe stars in Ridley Scott‘s action-adventure, Robin Hood; Jay Baruchel plays a reincarnated historical icon in The Trotsky; plus a look at the romantic comedy, Just Wright.
