Trailer Watch: Which movie should you go see this weekend?

What’s a must-watch, and what’s a miss? We tell you.

PLANNING ON HEADING to the cinema this weekend?

There are a few new movies out, but which is a must-watch, and are there any you should avoid?

A Ghost Story

What we know

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (played by Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that he is stuck in time and must watch as the woman he loves slowly moves on.

What the critics say

  • “Like an Apichatpong Weerasethakul movie translated for Western audiences, Lowery’s film offers an alternative view of the supernatural — and audiences expecting a straightforward horror movie will be disappointed.” – Variety
  • “The effect of all of this on the viewer is strange and intense but not exactly scary in the expected horror-movie manner. In an age of expanded, digitally enabled ectoplasmic possibility, Mr. Lowery takes a tried-and-true, low-tech, Halloween-costume approach.” – New York Times

What’s it rated?

Atomic Blonde

What we know

A thriller set in Berlin on the eve of the Berlin Wall’s collapse, Charlize Theron, who portrays Lorraine Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, is dispatched to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown.

What the critics say

- “This scattered plotting is largely forgivable as an excuse for breathlessly exciting action and a typically riveting star performance. McAvoy is his delightful manic self, as Lorraine’s often unhelpful ally… By the time Atomic Blonde gets to its pièce de résistance, a 20-minute, single-take brawl with a heap of KGB agents on a stairwell, it’s hard not to give yourself over to its brutal charms, logic be damned.” - The Atlantic:

- “Atomic Blonde has an incomprehensible plot, but the action is absolutely smashing.” - Vulture

Annabelle: Creation

What we know

Annabelle Creation is the prequel to the prequel to the prequel to The Conjuring 2. Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.

What the critics say

“Toy Story with a twist, this is better than it had any right to be. Hardcore horror buffs may laugh and scoff at the mechanics of some of the scares; the rest may never be able to walk past the window of a toy shop without crossing themselves.” – Empire

“The prequel for the Conjuring spinoff provides a chilling back story for the demonic doll.” - Hollywood Reporter
