Looking at the Weekend: Nov. 6-8, 2020

Without much new at the box office, a film like this could do well, but as we’ve seen in recent months, audiences just aren’t flocking back to cineplexes. That means this Diane Lane and Kevin Costner film, which would appeal more to older audiences, who are most at risk in the pandemic, isn’t likely to go very far.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): It doesn’t seem like a very interesting premise even with a solid cast.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Early talk of an Oscar nod for Lesley Manville seems to have evaporated but you never know.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): There is a sense of menace to the trailer of a family trying to get their grandson from a family cult, but I don’t know that I care to see it.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): A fascinating premise with a ho-hum trailer doesn’t quite excite.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Creepy horror movie looks pretty forgettable.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The trailer tries to build a sense of dread, but I did not find myself buying into it.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): This oft-delayed film may not be worth seeing, but it has potential.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Postponed so many times, it almost feels like this is something I’ve seen when all I’ve seen is the trailer.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It might be a decent thriller of a man going to prison to help bring down a gang, but it looks no better than other films that did the same and probably better.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): This kind of film has been done before in myriad different ways and there’s just not enough in the trailer to make it seem different.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Strong cast should maintain interest in this up-from-the-bootstraps tale that shares its title with a Springsteen ballad.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): A slow moving trailer neither interested me in the people nor did it really show much about the fighting at the core of characters motivation.
