New Movies for April 22/ by /

22 Apr

Five new movies out this week, so let’s take a look!  Some snuck onto the release schedule after the monthly preview, so it’s fresh meat!

SING STREET – A young kid in ’80s Dublin starts a band to impress a girl. The Brits on my Twitter feed have been losing their minds over this one, from the director of ONCE and BEGIN AGAIN, so if you like musical romance, this should hit the spot.

A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING – Tom Hanks and Tom Tykwer team up again to tell the tale of a man dealing with a mid-life crisis while selling tech to royals in the Middle East. Tykwer’s PERFUME: THE STORY OF A MURDERER was an unheralded classic, this could be something special though reviews seems a little soft. But hey, Tom Hanks!

HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS – Sally Field gets to star in a movie! What is this, 1983? Sally looks adorable as an older woman trying to find love with a younger man. Cuteness abounds.

MILES AHEAD – Don Cheadle’s dream project finally gets released, but barely. He wrote, directed, and stars in this Miles Davis biopic, but reviews have been surprisingly tepid. Maybe nobody likes Jazz.

THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR – The sequel nobody asked for is as bland as you’d expect. It’s incredible how a producer can put together so much talent without a decent script, but there you go. For the record, it’s a prequel AND a sequel.
