In Theatres: Our Brand is Crisis; Burnt; Truth (VIDEO)

Sandra Bullock, Bradley Coooper, and Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford all lead their respective releases this weekend



It appears the big names aren’t carrying their promotional budget this weekend.

Hyped new releases like Our Brand is Crisis, Burnt, and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse were all “roasted” by Rotten Tomatoes. And although the site shouldn’t be the only critical cloud you consult before you head to the theatre, it does give a convenient snapshot of what the movie-watching world is saying.

Meanwhile, expect strong first impressions from films like The Wonders and Tab Hunter Confidential, and renowned flicks like The Martian, Bridge of Spies, and Sicario are still in theatres.

So you don’t have to see something new if you’d rather see something reliable.

Our Brand is Crisis

Sandra Bullock stars as a superstar American political campaign chief who takes on the case of a Bolivian presidential candidate, set in 2002.

Burnt

Bradley Cooper plays a guy who thinks he’s Anthony Bourdain or Marco Pierre White, in a movie about a chef with one last chance to get it right.

Truth

News junkies, here’s your fix.

Cate Blanchette and Robert Redford star in this film about longtime CBS anchor Dan Rather and his producer, Mary Mapes, and a controversial story that ends their tenure with the network.
