This Weekend: Phantom Thread, 12 Strong and Den of Thieves

This Weekend: Phantom Thread, 12 Strong and Den of Thieves

This weekend we see the expansion of 2017 films Phantom Thread and Hostiles, with a few 2018 newcomers in 12 Strong and Den of Thieves. So while you want something more artful, something brooding or perhaps you’re in the mood for a conventional action film, there are some options out there if you’re in the mood for a trip to the theaters.

Phantom Thread

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
Stars: Vicky Krieps, Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville
Synopsis: Set in 1950’s London, Reynolds Woodcock is a renowned dressmaker whose fastidious life is disrupted by a young, strong-willed woman, Alma, who becomes his muse and lover.

Quick Take: It’s Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis, what’s not to love here?

12 Strong

Director: Nicolai Fuglsig
Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, William Fichtner
Synopsis: 12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.

Quick Take: I love this cast, and the idea of modern soldiers on horses is interesting, but the trailers were mundane. I’m hoping for the best, but expecting mediocrity.

Den of Thieves

Director: Christian Gudegast
Stars: Gerard Butler, Jordan Bridges, Pablo Schreiber
Synopsis: A gritty crime saga which follows the lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Dept. and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank.

Quick Take: I could take it or leave it. I like Gerard Butler overall though, so I’ll maybe give this a shot at some point.
