The Oscar Project
After spending some time starring in dramas like Marriage Story, The Last Duel, House of Gucci, and White Noise, Adam driver returns to science fiction with 65, the latest effort from the writers of A Quiet Place.
Driver stars as Mills, the pilot of a spaceship that crash lands on an unidentified planet. He is able to find only one other survivor of the crash, Koa, played by Ariana Greenblatt (Avengers: Infinity War, The One and Only Ivan). They struggle to survive on the new planet, which turns out to be prehistoric Earth, populated by the original dinosaurs, not ones re-created from frozen DNA.
I only just heard about this film from director Bobby Farrelly, half of the famous Farrelly Brothers (Dumb and Dumber, There's Something About Mary). This film brings Woody Harrelson into the role of Marcus, a former minor-league basketball coach who finds himself in legal trouble, derailing his opportunity to coach in the NBA.
As part of his community service, coach Marcus must take over a team of players with intellectual disabilities who aim to try out for a spot in the Special Olympics.
Hot on the heels of last year's Scream reboot, this film got greenlit and written in a hurry. Series regular Neve Campbell will not be included in this iteration, but Courtney Cox, Hayden Panettiere, and Melissa Barrera all return from previous films in the series. Also joining the cast this time around is Jenna Ortega, star of the hit Netflix series Wednesday.
The Scream franchise takes a trip out of the quiet suburbs in this film, with Ghostface terrorizing folks in New York City now, hoping that this change in scenery will rejuvenate the series.
There have been a ton of big releases since Quantumania that will be demanding theaters, but that isn't stopping studios from releasing other smaller films. Check your local showtimes for these releases:
