New Movies – May 19, 2017

Three new movies to keep you entertained for the 19th May 2017 weekend ahead!

There’s a love story, and family road trip, and one where humans visit another planet and get ripped to shreds by aliens. Definitely a nice contrast of movies to choose from.

Which one will you be checking out? Let us know in the comments below!

Alien Covenant

Info

The biggest movie of the week, by far. And for good reason. Alien: Covenant is the sixth movie in the Alien series, hitting the big screens near you 28 years after the first move was released. Over that time, the series has gained a cult-like following, who will never forget the brilliant Alien monsters in the films.

You’ll be pleased to know this one is a similar length to the rest, allowing you to be awe-inspired for a full 2 hours and 3 minutes in the (hopefully) comfortable movie seats. The cast is classic, but there are a few oddballs thrown in here and there – we weren’t quite sure what to make of the Franco and McBride combination in a thriller/horror movie. Oh well, there’s a first time for everything!

Alien: Covenant takes on a different sort of story, instead of us humans being visited by the deadly extra-terrestrial species, we go to them.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

Info

Noooooooooooo! We get the anticipation to make a third film following the success of the first and second, but why did they have to go and replace practically the whole cast! It’s just not the same 🙁

Ah well, we love clichés here, and we know one which fits perfectly – The only thing constant is change. We’re guessing the producers were thinking along the same lines. So if you’re looking for a movie to take your kids to this weekend, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is it.

A bit of light-hearted comedic fun will keep the kids entertained for a couple of hours. Of course, we aren’t saying you have to have kids with you, more props to you for seeing the movie you want!

Everything, Everything

Everything, Everything Movie Poster

Info

Young love knows no bounds! That should be the tagline for this movie. Everything, Everything follows the life of a girl who’s allergic to, well, everything. Her mother, being the protective and loving woman she is, keeps her house bound (a nice way to put under house arrest). She’s not allowed to go outside, ever.

All that changes, though, when a boy moves in next door. She rebels against her current life, wanting to experience what the world truly has to offer (by going outside).

The movie is based of the best selling book by Nicola Yoon – Everything, EverythingIt was filmed across Canada and Mexico, and is now set for an official release date on the 19th May 2017 for the United States.
