Game Night

MAX and Annie hold a weekly couples game night which takes a funny turn when Max’s brother, Brooks arranges a murder mystery party. One evening, the six gamers set out to solve the case and discover unexpected twists and turns. Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, it stars Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, and Jesse Plemons. Empire’s Amy West writes, “Game Night throws plenty of inventive twists at the audience, mostly at the characters’ expense. And it’s never afraid to call itself out on how on-the-nose it can be at times, either.”

The Hurricane Heist

OPPORTUNISTIC criminals infiltrate a US Mint facility in the face of an oncoming hurricane to steal $600 million. Needing a vault code only known to one Treasury Agent, their plan turns into a murderous operation. Directed by Rob Cohen, it stars Maggie Grace, Tobby Kebbell, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Randy Couture, and Melissa Bolona. Variety’s Andrew Barker writes, “[The Hurricane Heist is] a perfect storm of deliriously watchable inanity and ineptitude. It may be a strong early candidate for the worst movie of 2018, but don’t let that deter you — bad movies this fun don’t come along every day.”
