Movies: Other new movie releases for the weekend of April 8
A reteaming of director Jeff Nichols and actor Michael Shannon is cause for celebration. Their "Take Shelter" was an amazing, genre-defying sci-fi movie. Put this one on your weekend to-do list now.
Movies based on video games are a mixed bag, but this wild actioner is just taking visual cues from them. It's an entire movie shot in the first-person. Consider me intrigued.
Director Jean-Marc Vallée ("Dallas Buyers Club," "Wild") helms this drama about an investment banker (Jake Gyllenhaal) who is coming to grips with the death of his wife.
"10 Cloverfield Lane"
It's been in theaters a while, but I'm giving another plug for this unexpected treat set in the world of J.J. Abrams' "Cloverfield." It's like a great "Twilight Zone" episode.
