The only actual genre this week lean heavily in the direction of horror, American Satan and Happy Death Day. Not really a surprise it being Friday the 13th and all, and the trailers at least make one of them interesting. But their are two movies that might be worth checking out. Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is the almost true story (it is a movie, after all) of the psychology professor who created Wonder Woman and the women who helped him do it. The Foreigner is the latest Jackie Chan film, and the first out of his last 3 to get a US release. There were a few North American theaters who had Kung Fu Yoga and Railroad Tigers, but I don’t live in those couple of cities, so I had to wait for the DVD releases to see them. This one looks to be classic Chan, as he runs rings around the bad guys.

The actress Cara Delevingne sings the song I Feel Everything from the Luc Besson masterpiece Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Sadly we probably won’t be getting anything additional from that comic book universe any time soon, because the movie cost around $150,000,000 to make, but they only pulled in just over $115,000,000 in its 4 week run. If you were one of the luck few who got to see it (they put it in the tiniest theater in each of the various megaplexes with a low number of screenings, while Dunkirk had half the screens, including 100% of all IMAX showings, and started every 45 minutes) you know what how good it was. They should get funding for the second one in about 25 years, when this film is a Cult Classic.

War for the Planet of the Apes continues the new series, mapping out how we got to the place Charleston Heston found himself in way back in the original film. I like this reboot-prequel series better than any of the previous iterations, and I liked all of them. It is not the only option this week though, as Disney is rolling out Jagga Jasoos, a delightful little fantasy about a teenage detective and his female associate on a mission to find his father.
