Three new movies are getting released this weekend, all of which offer some promise of entertainment. As you look to plan the rest of your weekend, be sure to consider heading to the theater to check out “The Grinch,” “Overlord” or “The Girl in the Spider’s Web.”


This film looks surprisingly entertaining. Obviously, Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is a classic Christmas character, entertaining all ages across the last few decades. While Jim Carrey’s live-action adaptation in 2000 ultimately fell short as a true Grinch film because it was ridiculous, unruly and wild, this new adaptation featuring Benedict Cumberbatch looks to be entertaining, hilarious and even adorable. Under the mantle of Illumination Entertainment, which produced “Despicable Me” and “Minions,” the latest trailers for “The Grinch” have showcased Illumination’s uniquely adorable animation style mixed with Cumberbatch’s charming villainy. It certainly looks like a sweet and entertaining time at the movies, sure to prepare you for this upcoming holiday season.


Did anyone else play Nazi Zombies in “Call of Duty”? If so, get excited because this new film looks to be the live action incarnation of the beloved game mode. The trailer for this upcoming film is absolutely bonkers. With zombies, danger and war galore, this looks like an exciting time at the theater. This film has also been rumored to be the next installment in the “Cloverfield” franchise, and if so we will be able be to see where the increasoingly crazy film series is going. The Chimes will have a full review of this film in the paper next week, so keep your eyes open for it.


“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” continues the story of Lisbeth Salander, the titular character from “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” This time around, Claire Foy, who recently starred as Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s “The Crown,” takes over the main role. The trailer features the usually intense action mixed with themes of dubious family drama similar to that of “Spectre.” It shows some intrigue and promise, which may be worth checking out this weekend.
