Another weekend, another superhero film as Fox’s FANTASTIC FOUR reboot hits cinemas in wide release. The film is getting less-than-stellar reviews and faces stiff competition from holdover MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE-ROGUE NATION which exceeded expectations last week.
SHAUN THE SHEEP should have strong appeal with family audiences while the Jonathan Demme directed, Diablo Cody scripted RICKI AND THE FLASH starring Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline provides some more adult-targeted content amidst all the spandex.
Also in wide release is thriller THE GIFT.
