August Releases

August Releases

Ah, August -  by Hollywood tradition, it's the weakest movie month of the summer, if not the entire year.  But there are a few late bloomers this time around, holding our attention even as the box office drought looms ahead.  Suicide Squad and the controversial Disney/Pixar spoof Sausage Party lead the hype train, though there are more family friendly options around, like Pete's Dragon and the mysterious Kubo and the Two Strings

Television is as much a waste as always before the fall premieres, though Netflix's The Get Down looks like a pleasant little love letter to the ground zero of hip-hop in 1970s New York, so have a look come August 12th if you're interested.

The gaming world, in contrast, has a slew of cool debuts this month, though the hot topic this August is unquestionably No Man's Sky - the much-hyped (and much delayed) procedural generation adventure game promising mega hours of gameplay investment.





See you at the movies!
