Life has certainly been scary in the land of movies lately, as audiences experienced Goosebumps courtesy of some PG-rated ghosts and goblins in honor of Halloween, while a peak at the bride, groom and creepy crew contained in Crimson Peak offered a more adult version of the horrors experienced during “All Hallows’ Evening. Will this weekend be just as scary? The Martian, not one to scare easily, continues to orbit the cinematic globe, scoping out all life forms. That high-flying Pan, meanwhile, has yet to come down to earth (probably because he fears what’s waiting there for him). Hotel Transylvania 2 remains an appropriate place to visit other forms of life for those whose feet are planted firmly on the ground.
Amidst all this extraterrestrial action, more spirits of the sinister variety will soon enter the playing field, as the Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension promises to scare the bejesus outta its poltergeist-seeking spectators. Last but not least in the creepy department, we have The Last Witch Hunter. Will he be coming in first with moviegoers?
Fortunately, our movie world has a story to fit every type. For Type A personalities, there’s worker bee Steve Jobs. Prefer Hanks over horror, Cold War antics as opposed to the cold, living dead? Bridge of Spies is sure to connect once again with its political crowd (while making the Award Season rounds). Then there’s those musical geniuses, Jem and the Holograms, who will soon go head-to-head with an earth-bound Bill Murray, who, along with his own musical protégé, is prepped to Rock the Kasbah. Will all of their efforts be rewarded?
Ready for another round of rewarding, entertaining fun this weekend?
