As you may have heard, the store will be closing on January 21. But for the next little while at least, we’ll still be packing in the hits, and this week is no exception.
The Conjuring 2 – Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return as ghost busters Ed and Lorraine Warren who face their toughest case in a haunted house in England. This sequel just might be scarier than the original…
The Infiltrator – Bryan Cranston plays the man who helped bring down Pablo Escobar in this engrossing crime drama based on the true story.
Sausage Party – From the minds that brought you Superbad, This is the End, and The Interview comes an animated look inside the lives of foodstuffs. This is most definitely not for the kids!
Maggie’s Plan – Mumblecore icon Greta Gerwig plays a woman who thinks she’s got her life figured out till she realizes she’s wrong. Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore co-star.
Skiptrace – Jackie Chan gets another hilariously mismatched partner-in-crime in the person of Johnny Knoxville in this latest action comedy from Die Hard 2 director Renny Harlin.
Indignation – School Ties for a new generation. This James Shamus adaptation of the Philip Roth novel sees a working class Jewish student trying his best to fit in at a small Ohio college. Logan Lerman and Canada’s sweetheart Sarah Gadon co-star.
Ice Age: Collision Course – All your favourite Ice Age creatures are back to stop a meteor shower from wiping out their world. Like all movie series near their end, this latest chapter goes to space. And that squirrel still ain’t got that nut!
Nine Lives – Kevin Spacey plays a workaholic billionaire in this shaggy dog story about a man who learns the true meaning of life when he’s turned into a cat.
Mia Madre – A heartbreaking drama that will probably speak to a lot of us, and remind us that you’re never too old to be conflicted about the loss of a parent. This was a favourite of both Cannes and TIFF last year.
Proteus – This fascinating documentary chronicles the work of Ernst Haeckel, whose explorations of the sea in the 19th century had a profound effect on fields beyond oceanography and marine biology. It’s a reminder of a time when the ocean was as mysterious and wondrous as deep space is today…
Snowtime – In the mood for winter? Maybe you are or maybe you aren’t, but this fun animated film from a pair of Montreal filmmakers might make you eager to get out there and throw some snowballs around.
See you in the store!
