Now in Theaters:
Spiderman: Across the Spider Verse – The sequel to the 2018 animated box office winner, Spiderman: Into the Spider Verse – continues the multiverse concept introduced in that previous film. Its 140-minute length is sure to make it one of the shortest franchise films to make it into theaters this calendar year.
The Boogeyman – The Stephen King short story from his Night Shift collection, in which a super entity that preys on the emotionally vulnerable terrorizes a family dealing with loss, gets the big screen treatment in this adaptation.
