This Weekend’s New Movies: ‘Prisoners,’ ‘Battle of the Year’
If you’re heading to the movies this weekend, at least one of the new releases looks pretty good. ‘Prisoners’ is a psychological thriller about a parent’s desperate search for his missing child, and the other, ‘Battle Of The Year’ is the latest addition to the unlikely-dance-team-tries-to-win-the-dance-team-championship genre, so if you’re into either of those things, you’re in luck!
When his 6-year-old daughter suddenly goes missing, one father grows more and more desperate as his (and the police’s) attempts to find her keep coming up empty.
Directed by Denis Villanueve
Starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Melissa Leo
‘Battle of the Year’
The Battle of the Year, held in France, is the global break-dancing championship and no American has won it in 15 years … but one oddball collection of incredible dancers looks to change that and bring the title back home.
Directed by Benson Lee
Starring Laz Alonzo, Josh Holloway, Chris Brown, Caity Lotz
