In Cinemas: September 2, 2016 — Equity, The Light Between Oceans, Morgan

Welcome to summer’s end, and in terms of what we’ve been getting from Hollywood this summer, it can’t come to a close soon enough. And I’ve started getting excited by the imminent arrival of the Atlntic Film Festival, but more about that in the next week or so.

This week is also the 6th birthday of Flaw In The Iris, Thanks so much for reading it!

Equity arrives in cinemas competing for the dullest movie title of all time. The trailer is intriguing, though: It’s a Wall Street thriller where women are front and centre. I, for one, welcome the change in perspective—if not the name of the thing.

Here comes the period drama that brought two of the currently best-looking actors together: The Light Between Oceans. Derek Cianfrance of The Place Beyond the Pines and Blue Valentine directs the story about a couple (Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender) who rescue a baby from the sea and raise it, only to discover later that the mother (Rachel Weisz) is still searching for the child.

Morgan looks a lot like Ex Machina in the trailer, though maybe with a little more of a horror bent…? Directed by Luke Scott, son of Ridley, it’ll be interesting to see how far the apple falls from the tree. Or eyeball from the replicant.
