Looking at the Weekend: October 2-4, 2020

It looks like the failure of Tenet to draw an audience has made studios skittish and they’ve pulled many of their new releases and pushed them either closer to the end of the year or into 2021 completely. So, there’s nothing new this weekend, except in limited reelase.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): Science ficiton can be well done if clever enough, but this trailer doesn’t quite sell it.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Futuristic thriller might make an intriguing matinee.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It might be a mildly diverting science fiction film about time travel and avoiding the world that humans have created, but it just does not look that appealing.

Peter J. Patrick (PP): Historical drama about a little known aspect of WWII has sleeper potential.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The story of women being trained as spies during WWII sounds exciting, but a dull trailer did not make it seem so interesting.

Individual Commentary:

Peter J. Patrick (PP): An original looking sci-fi horror film should be worth seeking out.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The story of an assassin using brain plant technology to inhabit other bodies to do the work sounds intriguing, though the trailer was confusing and a little too bloody for me. Still might be worth seeing.
