Look, we pretty much know what the rest of the year looks like in terms of number one opening weekends. It’s going to go like this including this week’s number one: Thor > Justice League > Coco > Star Wars > Jumanji/Pitch Perfect 3. You could almost set your watch to that. But it’s also the end of the year, which means there’s going to be a ton of award hopefuls hitting in limited release, and a ton of other movies just coming out hoping to catch some of that holiday cash.
We can all look forward to those blockbusters for sure, but which of the smaller films are you going to be gunning out to see in the few lulls between big releases? I’ve got The Disaster Artist reserved for possibly my favorite movie of the year, but I also want to make sure I see All the Money in the World (with no more Kevin Spacey) and The Post (which never had Kevin Spacey). Of course there is Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis’ the Phantom Thread to take in all the directing/acting glory as well. I’ve also got a hankering that I’m going to dig the uncomfortable Beatriz at Dinner.
So how are you going to get all snobby with your movies as the year ends?
