Gemini Man leads the new cinema releases October 11th 2019

Gemini Man This week, there are FOUR new films out for you to choose from, led by Gemini Man. Here are the titles, with more info below:

    Gemini Man
    The Day Shall Come
    Abominable
    Dolemite Is My Name

Gemini Man: Will Smith plays Will Smith, who also plays Will Smith. Will Smith has to battle Will Smith. One of them was created in a lab 25 years ago. Why?

Well, after watching this trailer, my first thought was… who cares?

But… it comes from Ang Lee”, who brought us Life Of Pi, even though this does star Will Smith, who plays Will Smith, and who also plays Will Smith.

The problem is that this movie has actually been filmed in 3D, *and* in high-frame rate (HFR) 120fps, yet while it’s showing in some screens near me in 3D HFR, the IMAX versions are all 2D! I’ve tried to contact Vue to find out why they’re doing this, since if any screen will show it off best in my area of Manchester, it’s the Vue Printworks where they have an IMAX Laser set-up. Here’s hoping for a positive response!

Also stars: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen, Benedict Wong, Douglas Hodge, Ralph Brown, Theodora Miranne

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Maybe!


The Day Shall Come is a new movie from Chris Morris (Brass Eye, Jam, Four Lions), and as expected before I checked out the trailer, it already had me giggling away from the start.

The film centres around an impoverished preacher who brings hope to the Miami projects is offered cash to save his family from eviction. He has no idea his sponsor works for the FBI who plan to turn him into a criminal by fueling his madcap revolutionary dreams. So, it’s not wholly divorced from Four Lions, but still looks great fun.

Writers: Jesse Armstrong, Sean Gray, Christopher Morris, Tony Roche
Stars: Anna Kendrick, Danielle Brooks, Denis O’Hare, Kayvan Novak

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Hit!


Abominable is another of those lazy CGI movies for kids where nothing of consequence happens, this time, centering around a magical Yeti, who must return to his family, like you do.

Hence, it won’t shock or surprise you if I say I won’t be going to see this.

Directors: Jill Culton, Todd Wilderman
Screenplay: Jill Culton
Stars: Chloe Bennet, Albert Tsai, Sarah Paulson, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Michelle Wong

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Miss!


Dolemite Is My Name looks like a last attempt to kick start Eddie Murphy‘s tired career back into gear. Maybe this trailer works for you, but I’m still waiting to laugh.

The synopsis is that when Hollywood shuts him out, multi-talented Rudy Ray Moore (Murphy) strikes out on his own to make the blaxploitation film Dolemite (1975).

A lot of people seem hyped for this, but I am not one of them.

Director: Craig Brewer
Writers: Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski
Also stars: London Worthy, Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key, Chelsea Gilson, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chris Rock, Craig Robinson, Jamaal Lewis, Tituss Burgess, Mike Epps, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, TI

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Miss!
