Next screening? “Kin,” the next to last movie of August

So here it is, the Labor Day Weekend end of one the weakest movie-releasing/movie-going month of the year.

And for the same reason one buys  lottery tickets, we cling to hope for “Kin,” Lionsgate’s young boy with an alien gun thriller. “Because you never know.”

Dennis Quaid, Zoe Kravitz, that’s a pretty good supporting cast (for starters).  James Franco and his #MeToo burden are the heavies.

The trailer doesn’t hint at great things, but again…

The FINAL movie screening for this final weekend of the summer cinema season is “The Little Stranger,” and that has a hint of horror period piece “sleeper” to it. “Destination Wedding” isn’t opening wide enough to make Keanu/Winona nostalgia ring out, and isn’t being screened for critics anyway.

But hope springs eternal, even if the market research that tells a studio “Just unload it off your books at the end of August and you might get lucky” dampens expectations just a bit.
