My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 – When their teenage daughter is about to graduate from high school (making you feel older than you really are because not that much time has passed), Toula and Ian realize they’ve lost some of the spark in their relationship and Toula’s family’s continual interruption of their private lives hasn’t helped them to be able to reconnect. When it’s discovered that Toula’s parents were never officially married, the entire Portokalos family comes together to have an even bigger wedding than before, just like some classic sitcom setup or an episode of the Flintstones. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 went up again Batman V Superman and actually seems like it held out pretty well considering how quickly BvS deflated at the box office. Stars Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan, Michael Constantine, Andrea Martin, Ian Gomez, Elena Kampouris, Gerry Mendicino, John Stamos, Rita Wilson, and Joey Fatone. Rated PG-13.

The Brothers Grimsby

The Brothers GrimsbyThe Brothers Grimsby (otherwise known as just Grimsby outside the United States) stars Sacha Baron Cohen, which might give some clues to its overall quality. Nobby lives in an English fishing town and after the pair were split during adoption 28 years ago and has been looking for his brother Sebastian ever since. Leaving his wife and 11 children and football fandom behind, Nobby tries to reunite with his brother Sebastian. Sebastian has become MI-6’s deadliest assassin and just uncovered a global terrorist attack and goes on the run with Nobby to prove his innocence and save the world. Frankly Mark Strong deserves better than this. Stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Penelope Cruz, Mark Strong, Rebel Wilson, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, and Isla Fisher. Rated R.

Midnight Special

Midnight Special – Midnight Special only had a limited released in theaters (though I know our local Alamo Drafthouse always promoted it) but received rave reviews from several screenings. Supposedly in the vein of Close Encounters of the Third Kind a father and his son with supernatural powers are on the run from a cult and the FBI. Stars Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, Jaeden Lieberher, and Sam Shepard. Rated PG-13.
