Out of the Hugh Jackman Cannon

This week we’ve got two new movies this week. He Named me Malala is a great documentary by David Guggenheim about the insanely brave Malala. Pan also came out but nobody seemed to notice. I’m not even sure the filmmakers realized they were making a movie. It is however Hugh Jackman’s birthday so Happy Birthday Hugh, here’s the biggest bomb of your career.

Pan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rather than an Undisputed Classic we decided to challenge ourselves by checking out a Hugh Jackman film we hadn’t seen which included Prisoners, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fountain.

In 1985 we take on Sliver Bullet & Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

Our trailers this week are:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
