Sept/ 10-17 WV Marquee Cinemas Premieres & Flashbacks

Shang Chi after its  Labor Day tentpole rush to nearly $100 million despite the pandemic surge. The new Marvel Universe entry will stay at the top of the box this weekend. It's only real competition is James Wan's Malignant.

Wan has an impressive resume of franchise starters ranging from Conjuring and Insidious to the Saw reboot. He also directed Aquaman and Furious 7. However, the plague of Covid has prompted a wide horror genre choice on screen. This one will do well to achieve about 33% of Shang's second weekend draw (about $34 million to a $7-12 range, despite the early Halloween entry. 

The Faith market will be represented by Show Me the Father which has hopes of tapping The War Room / Fireproof fans. 

Sept. 17 has Clint Eastwood's newest western, Cry Macho, set for limited release. 

In it one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder takes a job to bring a man's young son home and away from his alcoholic mom. On their journey, the horseman finds redemption through teaching the boy what it means to be a good man.  

COPSHOP is the only wide release.  Gerard Butler stars as a hitman assigned to kill a target, except the target gets himself arrested by sucker-punching a rookie cop — so to get himself closer to his target, the hitman intentionally gets himself locked up in jail, too. Now it’s up to the rookie cop (played by Alexis Louder) to prevent the hit job from taking place, in this R-rated action thriller from Open Road Films and Briarcliff Entertainment.

Some cinemas will debut Eyes of Tammy Faye,  described as  an intimate look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker.

Sept. 24 will be the tenth anniversary release of Courageous and the premiere of Eyes of Evan Hansen. 

October brings much awaited titles such as "Venom Let There be Carnage," Many Saints of New York, and  finally No Time to Die. Nov. 1 brings the next MCU title, The Eternals.
