Don't know what movie to watch this week? Let On Demand Weekly help you browse through the New Movies On Demand (MOD) every Tuesday.
- THE LINCOLN LAWYER
Match the US Theatrical Grosses to the films above:
THE LINCOLN LAWYER (Lionsgate) – Premieres July 12
Don't worry, it's not a Matthew McConaughey / Abraham Lincoln movie. But it is McConaughey in a legal drama vs. a RomCom. Okay, it's been a while since A TIME TO KILL, but if you're worried if MM won't go shirtless... don't be. McConaughey delivers.
In fact, he delivers throughout the movie for an enjoyable time. Who is playing who as he represents a murder suspect? Risk It now as you wait for his turn in the next William Friedkin (THE EXORCIST) film: KILLER JOE.
Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Phillippe, Marisa Tomei, William H. Macy, Josh Lucas
Same Day as DVD
INSIDIOUS (FilmDistrict) – Premieres July 12
FilmDistrict is Bob Berney's (Newmarket) new distribution company and INSIDIOUS is their first big hit. In an age of bloated production budgets and expectations, INSIDIOUS' under $2M budget and $50M+ US theatrical gross is a tremendous industry story. You root for films like this to succeed.
DEMAND IT for a scary role for Rose Byrne (DAMAGES, BRIDESMAIDS) who is having a big year. Do you dare watch a haunting movie at home?
Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne
Same Day as DVD
ARTHUR (Warner Bros.) – Premieres July 15
ARTHUR is a remake of the 30 year-old movie starring Dudley Moore, Liza Minelli and Sir John Gielgud. I'm always dubious of a remake of good, or in this case well-thought of movie. Is it necessary? Can they improve it or is Hollywood just being lazy?
Veteran director of TV, Jason Winer (MODERN FAMILY) helms this reboot. RISK IT if you're a Russell Brand fan.
Russell Brand, Helen Mirren
Same Day as DVD, Weeks Before Netflix and Redbox
