TIMES ADDED : Hurricane "Crawl" Continues Horror Cinema Debuts; Roaring Lion King Awaits

New Orleans facing another Hurricane warning , and, a storm related horror flick "Crawl" debuts this week in cinemas. Girls dad trapped in crawl space, and, a reptile after him. That's perfect release date timing. 

 A solid pre release one million dollar gross greeted Director  Alexandre Aja, Crawl is a disaster thriller about a father (Barry Pepper) and daughter (Kaya Scodelario) who are pursued by an army of alligators when trapped inside their home during a Category 5 hurricane.  

Also facing your friendly neighborhood SpiderMan in Europe, a much needed comedy involving an Uber driver hijacked by a cop chasing a killer. Stuber, an action styled comedy,  stars Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista  as mismatched heroes in the "violence-laced pic," which follows an Uber driver who unwillingly becomes part of a police officer's arrest operation.

 

Next week, its the live action remake of Lion King, which is a guaranteed mega hit for the Mouse House. Director Jon (Jungle Book) Favreau has a near scene for scene creation of the animated 1994 animation icon. Hailed as photo realistic  computer animation, yielding imagery so realistic that the result is called "virtual cinematography," meaning the animals and dramatic African backdrops indisputably look like the real thing, as if shot on location.

Summer cinema has been mainly a mix of superhero styled tentpoles and horror flicks.  Studios need to take a risk and introduce more creativity, such as screwball comedy, a moderate serious drama skewing to middle age and up, and more experiments with finding a romantic comedy combo that works. A lesson could be had from the horror genre----  new ideas, small budget. 

 Incidentally, potentially record  breaking predictions have been released for the first  week of It-Chapter Two.

For the first six months of 2019 , Suspense/Action tops genre charts followed by animation, drama, comedy and horror, according to Boxoffice Magazine. Last year, suspense/action, drama, animation, comedy and horror were the five top cinema genres.  Suspense/action has been #1 since 2008. Horror has placed fifth except for two year in that time frame when "other" took fifth. 

NEW

LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation.

 

CRAWL 

When a massive hurricane hits her Florida hometown, Haley (Kaya Scodelario) ignores evacuation orders to search for her missing father (Barry Pepper). Finding him gravely injured in the crawl space of their family home, the two become trapped by quickly encroaching floodwaters. As time runs out to escape the strengthening storm, Haley and her father discover that the rising water level is the least of their fears.

STUBER

When a mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) picks up a passenger (Dave Bautista) who turns out to be a cop hot on the trail of a brutal killer, he's thrust into a harrowing ordeal where he desperately tries to hold onto his wits, his life and his five-star rating.
