Out This Week: 01 August 2019

First weekend of August brings out the heat to the screens big time with Hobbs & Shaw, and it’s the sole Hollywood release this weekend. keep reading to know more.

Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw

Directed by: David Leitch
With: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Helen Mirren
What is it about: Lawman Luke Hobbs and outcast Deckard Shaw form an unlikely alliance when a cyber-genetically enhanced villain threatens the future of humanity.
Heads Up: This spin-off The Fast & Furious series is directed by David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2) and is giving two of the best characters of that series their own film. The trailer is bunker and having Idris Elba as the big baddie is just what is needed to make this one THE PERFECT cheesy summer tentpole, in what’s otherwise considered a dreary summer for films. I can’t wait!

Khandaani Shafakhana

Directed by: Shilpi Dasgupta
With: Sonakshi Sinha, Annu Kapoor, and Varun Sharma
What is it about: A feisty girl from Punjab, tries to continue her family traditions by opening a sex clinic to help and aware others in her hometown.
Heads Up: a Bollywood sex comedy? I am interested already and Sonakshi Sinha starring in it is just the icing on the cake.

The Queen’s Corgi

Directed by: Vincent Kesteloot, Ben Stassen
With: Jack Whitehall, Jon Culshaw, Tom Courtenay, and Julie Walters
What is it about: The British monarch’s favorite dog gets lost from the palace and finds himself at a dog fight club. He then begins his long journey to find his way back home.
Heads Up: This Belgian animated film doesn’t offer much when it comes to story or looks, but its target audience is little kids who might just enjoy it, even though I don’t think adults would feel the same.
