I am actually market and we are talking new movies what's new in theaters this weekend.
And this week -- -- all turns -- night vision back on as a -- for the third installment in the side by theory is.
Now he escaped -- -- stranded on an unfriendly planet and then the unfriendly bounty hunters arrive.
Not at city editor in chief -- -- made -- dot com is here with more.
Okay Matt how to as a ready continue.
This franchise which started back in 2000 which with -- Black.
Yeah and Pitt fans of pitch black are going to be happy because this movie is closer to that.
Then the second movie chronicles of Riddick -- run pitch black was kind of stripped down.
Almost a haunted house story about that Riddick Vin Diesel being crap trapped on this planet.
With some other survivors of a crash -- try to survive against these monsters.
This then they went to the sequel which was more -- -- more of an epic game and didn't really do well with audiences.
This third when they kind of learn their lesson they're going back to that same formula from the first one.
And the critics are kind of split here are some of the critics say that it's really kind of a solid -- picture.
Like the first what was it has the requisite action.
But the other -- the critics say that really the movie suffers from some really really awful dialogue.
And some trouble with that characterization and that.
Apart from -- you don't really get any real characters.
So that -- is mixed it's only about 57%.
On rotten tomatoes which is definitely on the -- side unfortunately.
Yeah I -- staying they're questioning at the dialogue because it's sort of known for those one liners I -- that's the kind of movie it is that this side -- action movie.
I'm so what do you think is gonna happen at the box office when it comes to the fans how loyal are the fans of this franchise.
You know that's a good question I think Vin Diesel does have an audience -- I think that the fans are gonna go see this but you know this is a slow week for Hollywood.
And that target market that eighteen to 25 year old male that's going to be seeing this.
Is also going to be staying home watching the beginning of the pro football season so I'm not sure that we're gonna see it on a box office.
It'll probably be number one but and I think it's gonna have trouble -- -- twenty million dollars.
And they can also expect another scifi regular Katie -- -- is also in this film.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think she does -- you know I think that she I think it remains to be seen how much he's going to be a draw and I are like that she is getting more roles unfortunately I -- having seen this up.
Felt like the movie doesn't do much what -- it's almost like a greatest hits of Starbucks.
When she was in Battlestar Galactica she's not on screen as much as I'd like to see.
And we don't really see her do anything she hasn't done before now that'll be a welcome for some fans out there but I would like to see her have a bit of a -- -- part.
Start well and a film is also an IMAX which probably lends itself well to a movie like this what do you think of that.
I think that's gonna help you know -- the movie does look good but you know I'll say that this is rated.
And it is absolutely an.
Cast a wider net but this is definitely an.
