The latest releases and special screenings hitting Music City this week. For a complete list of upcoming releases, check out our 2024 Film Guide

Love Lies Bleeding We found Rose Glass’s breakout Saint Maud one of A24’s most lackluster releases, but the trailer for this crime caper involving a gym manager (Kristen Stewart) and a bodybuilder (Katy O’Brian) who juice up with an unusual substance and delve into the criminal underworld is intriguing enough to make this one our pick of the week. Now playing in theaters.

Problemista Tilda Swinton does for the art world what The Devil Wears Prada did for Vogue in this hilariously surreal A24 tale about an aspiring El Salvadorian toymaker who must rely on his boss’s every whim to keep his visa. Now playing at The Belcourt

The Settlers Chile gets its own revisionist western that finds the titular settlers and their British commanders tasked with clearing the indigenous population off an aristocrat’s land. Now playing at The Belcourt

One Life Anthony Hopkins plays real-life unsung hero Nicky Winton who convinced the British and Czech governments to rescue Jewish children before Nazi occupation but remained haunted by those he couldn’t save. It’s inarguably more crowd-pleasing than The Zone of Interest, but all reviews indicate Hopkins is on point. Now playing in theaters.

Arthur The King  Mark Wahlberg stars as a triathlete who befriends a dog during a grueling race in this inspirational drama based on a true story. 

The American Society of Magical Negroes It’s not too early to go ahead and call this one the misstep of the year. Justice Smith plays a black dude who gets recruited Men in Black style by David Alan Grier to a secret society of “Negro” wizards who keep white people happy. But when his biggest client falls for the girl of his dreams, he causes a culture war ruckus. Early reviews say it’s about as good as it sounds. 

The Hateful Eight Tarantino’s western gets a revival screening as part of Music City Mondays’s tribute to legendary film composer Ennio Morricone. 

The Noriko Trilogy Yasujiro Ozu’s triptych of domestic dramas about postwar Japanese life becomes the latest entry in The Belcourt’s trilogy series as restored versions of Tokyo Story, Late Spring, and Early Summer make a rare appearance on the bigscreen. 

Final Destination / Nightmare Beach Relive the horror flick that made millennials afraid to fly and see a neglected gem about a maniac clad in a motorcycle helmet slashing his way through a Miami spring break during the Regan years this weekend’s Belcourt midnights. 

Snack Shack Two teens try to strike it rich by running the local pool’s snack bar and find their lives turned upside down by the lifeguard of their dreams in a zany indie comedy that just may hit the mark. Now playing at AMC Thoroughbred 20 and Regal Streets of Indian Lake

The Prank This pitch-black comedy stars Rita Moreno as a physics teacher two entitled teens try to frame for murder. Now playing at AMC Thoroughbred 20. 

Pastor’s Kid When a college student tries to run away from the spiritual abuse of her past, she’s confronted with God’s love in the most unlikely of places. Now playing at AMC Thoroughbred 20. 

Knox Goes Away We have no idea why a movie directed by Michael Keaton in which he plays a hitman with dementia opposite Al Pacino has received zero hype–especially given its solid reviews. Now playing in theaters

French Girl But, it’s pretty clear why a romcom starring Zack Braff and Vanessa Hudgens that relies on Canadian fish-out-of-water humor is only playing at one theater. Now playing at Regal Hollywood 27

Thorns  “An ex-priest working for NASA is sent to investigate a remote observatory that went silent after receiving a radio signal from deep space. He discovers that signal has set in motion the biblical end of times.” Sign me up! Now playing at Regal Hollywood 27.

The Latest in Bolly/Tolly/Kolly/Lollywood and Other Special Presentations of Asian and Middle Eastern Imports.

Bastar (Hindi) The 1910 Bastar rebellion gets the high-octane Bollywood treatment.  Now playing at Regal Hollywood 27. 

Yodha (Hindi) Those terrorists who hijacked this passenger lane didn’t realize that an off-duty soldier with a penchant for Seagal antics would be in coach. Now playing at Regal Hollywood 27.
