The Lost City: There’s is only one film this week that will be covered by our Bananameter critics, and given the acclaim the film has received since its SXSW world premiere, it’s certain to be two hours of fun. Starring Sandra Bullock as a struggling romance author and Channing Tatum as the dashing cover model that has to save the day, this is a throwback to fun on-location adventures like Romancing the Stone and The Mummy. The Lost City co-stars Daniel Radcliffe, Brad Pitt, and Patti Harrison.
Everything Everywhere All at Once: Another film the premiered at this years SXSW festival, Everything Everywhere is directed by the writing/directing duo Daniels and stars Michelle Yeoh as a wife and mother who is pulled into a multiversal battle during a tax audit. You may think this description sounds crazy, but this is from the same filmmakers who are behind Swiss Army Man, so everything is on the table. Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, James Hong, and Jamie Lee Curtis co-star.
Infinite Storm: Directed by Malgorzata Szumowska, the film stars Naomi Watts as a mountain climber who encounters a stranger during a blizzard. The film is based on the real-life expereiences of mountain rescuer Pam Bales and co-stars Denis O’Hare and Billy Howle.
7 Days: The winner of the 2022 Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature, 7 Days is written and directed by Deadpool actor Roshan Sethi. Starring Sethi alongside Geraldine Viswanathan as two people who are stuck in lockdown after their lackluster first date. While this may end up being dated due to it being a COVID-centric film, the lead performances combined with the subject matter of two people finding out who they really are elevates it to something much more.
