Latest Akimbo News

The Wretched, Guns Akimbo, The Rhythm Section and more

Apr 30, 2020

NewsDio By Another week has passed and still, for the most part, movie theaters remain closed. With that, movie lovers are left with streaming services and digital rentals / purchases to help fill the gap. Fortunately, this week there's no shortage of new and recent releases to help all kinds of movie lovers find something to watch. This week's releases bring a new horror movie to the table, to be released in a unique way, as well as a couple of 2020 movies that actually hit theaters before closing. We also have some superhero animated action and a concert movie from one of the world's greatest artists. Here are this week's new streaming movie picks. RELATED: Will Darth Vader Come Back at The Clone Wars Series Finale at Disney +? Contents The Miserables – digital This could be the new release for this weekend, for various reasons. For one thing, The Wretched, which is available digitally starting May 1, is an acclaimed horror movie by directors Brett and Drew Pierce. Additionally, for those expecting some sort of theatrical experience in these isolated times, IFC has devised a unique release strategy that involves the premiere of the film in a handful of theaters that are still open across the country. That makes it more like a midnight movie from a bygone era, which is pretty neat. The film focuses on a troubled teenager who is forced to live with his father during the summer. Things get weird when he is forced to deal with a witch who has taken over one of his new neighbors. Akimbo weapons – VOD Miles (Daniel Radcliffe) 's nerdy existence as a video game developer takes a dramatic turn when, inadvertently, he gets caught as the next contestant on SKIZM, an underground gang that broadcasts live death matches in real life. While Miles excels at escaping everything, that won't help him survive Nix (Samara Weaving), an assassin at the top of his game. Guns Akimbo is not one to miss. The rhythm section – digital This is one of the few movies that hit theaters in 2020 before the general shutdown. One would have thought, given that it stars Blake Lively and Jude Law, in addition to coming from the producers of the James Bond franchise, that it could have made a big impact. It did not. But The Rhythm Section is available digitally now, for those curious and looking for some action. It focuses on a woman named Stephanie who realizes that a terrible accident from her past was not an accident at all. A former CIA agent enlists to help her uncover the truth, but this journey quickly turns into revenge when Stephanie seeks to punish those responsible. The photograph – digital For romantic people, we have The photograph, which is available digitally now. The latter, the last of director Stella Meghie, also hit theaters in February, although her career was delayed a bit. It focuses on a famous photographer who dies unexpectedly, leaving his daughter Mae frustrated and full of questions. Mae finds a photo hidden in a safe deposit box that she sees delving into the first years of her mother's life. The cast includes Issa Rae, Lakeith Stanfield, Teyonah Parris, and Chante Adams. Dreamkatcher – digital Here's something else for the horror crowd. Dreamkatcher focuses on a boy who, to stop his nightmares, steals a dream catcher from his strange neighbor. This leads his family to save him from a dangerous being. The cast includes Kerry Harris, Henry Thomas, Radha Mitchell, Lin Shaye, and Jules Willcox. Directed by Kerry Harris, the film is now available through digital retailers. LEGO DC: Shazam! Magic and monsters – digital We won't have new superhero movies in theaters for a while, so this can serve as a good substitute. LEGO DC: Shazam! Magic and monsters is available digitally now and features The Goonies star Sean Astin as the DC hero. The animated feature sees Billy Batson being invited to join the Justice League. To do so, you must reveal your secret identity. Matt Peters directs and, to help sweeten the pot, he will feature a battle between Shazam and Black Adam. Since we won't be seeing that in live action for at least a few years, this could help scratch the itch. The assistent – digital Here we have a launch under the radar of director Kitty Green that is worth putting on his radar. The assistentNow available on digital platforms, it currently has a very robust 90 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It focuses on Jane, a recent college graduate who hopes to succeed as a film producer. He just got a job as an assistant to a powerful entertainment magnate. However, as Jane goes about her daily routine, she becomes more aware of the abuse she suffers on a daily basis, leading her to take a stand. Arkansas – digital This is another interesting release, for various reasons. Arkansas was originally slated to debut at SXSW in Austin, Texas, before the event was canceled. Instead, it will debut on digital platforms on May 1. It serves as the directorial debut for Clark Duke, whom viewers may recognize for his roles in Time machine in a Jacuzzi or The office. Duke also stars alongside Liam Hemsworth. The two play a pair of drug dealers who end up on the wrong side of things with their boss boss, played by Vince Vaughn. Tammy is always dying – digital Tammy is always dying, which arrives digitally on May 1, has a pretty interesting behind-the-scenes hook. Amy Jo Johnson, who 90s kids can recognize as the Pink Ranger of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, directed the drama, which serves as her directorial debut. It focuses on a woman who finds herself at a crossroads in her life when her mother contracts a terminal illness. Felicity Huffman, Anastasia Phillips, Clark Johnson, Lauren Holly and Kristian Bruun are the stars. All day and one night – Netflix Netflix will release a new original movie All day and one night, on May 1 for subscribers to broadcast. This comes to director Joe Robert Cole, who is perhaps best known as the co-writer of the Oscar-winning blockbuster Marvel Black Panther. It also has an impressive cast led by Jeffrey Wright, Isaiah John, Ashton Sanders, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen). The film focuses on a young man who is serving a life sentence in prison and remembers the circumstances and the system that put him on the road to a life of crime. Bruce Springsteen: Western Stars – HBO Finally, for music lovers, we have Bruce Springsteen: Western Stars. The Boss's latest music film was released last year to critical acclaim (currently with a 94 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes), but it finally hits HBO on May 1. See the iconic musician playing every song in his song. last album, which also received a great reception, backed by a band and a full orchestra. Topics: Streaming Writer of various things on the internet (mainly about movies) since 2013. Main lover of popcorn movies. An avid fan of James Bond, Marvel, and Star Wars. He has a tremendously fat cat named Buster and still buys CDs. I have my reasons. Share
