This weekend in theatres, we've got the Groundhog Day-style thriller Happy Death Day, political biopic Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House, and the return of Jackie Chan in The Foreigner.
In Happy Death Day, a blissfully self-centered college student wakes up on her birthday. As the morning goes on, she gets the eerie feeling that she's experienced the events of this day before. When a masked killer suddenly takes her life in a brutal attack, she once again magically wakes up unharmed as if the day never happened. Now, the frightened young woman must relive the same day over and over until she figures out who murdered her.
Liam Neeson stars in the story of Mark Felt, who under the name "Deep Throat" helped journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncover the Watergate scandal in 1974, at a time when distrust of government due to widespread corruption was at an all-time high in the U.S.
If you're in the mood for action, you can't go wrong with Jackie Chan! In The Foreigner, he takes on the role of a humble London businessman whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when his teenage daughter dies in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. His relentless search to find the terrorists leads to a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official whose own past may hold the clues to the identities of the elusive killers.
