Looking at the Weekend: Sep. 27-29, 2019

A new animated feature from DreamWorks should be just what the September box office needs. The likelihood of the film performing well and topping the box office is pretty good even if Downton Abbey has a solid hold over.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): It looks like a film trying too hard to be edgy.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Looks really bizarre, but Fatih Akin’s films are always interesting, so just maybe it works.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): There is a little interest in the trailer, but I am not fond of serial killer films in general and this is getting slammed by the critics.

Peter J. Patrick (PP): A surefire Oscar contender for Best Actress and a wild card contender for Best Picture.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): Renee Zellwegger would not have leaped to mind to play Judy Garland, but she dominates the trailers and should easily get an Oscar nomination for her gutsy protrayal.
