This Month in Film – May 2017

Monday 22nd, May 2017 / 17:37
By Hogan Short

Chuck

A true-story boxing tale of heavyweight Chuck Wepner. Wepner, a former Marine, was unexpectedly chosen to fight Muhammad Ali in a title match. Sound a little like Rocky? Wepner’s story was actually Stallone’s original inspiration for that film. This movie has a great cast (real-life couple Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts) and great early reviews. (May 5)

Burden

Burden is an unfiltered look at performance artist Chris Burden as he takes his gallery of work to riskier and more dangerous places. This documentary follows a man who is willing to get shot, run over, crucified or whatever else he deems is art. Watch and decide if you agree with him. (May 5)

The Lovers

Legends Tracy Letts and Debra Winger star in this new take on an old idea. The Lovers focuses on a married couple both having their own affairs, each unaware of the other’s infidelity. What they do become aware of is that they are beginning to fall in love again. (May 5)

The Wall

In Iraq, two soldiers are pinned down by an enemy sniper. They can’t escape, with only a flimsy wall shielding them from death. An interesting concept that hopefully makes for a good movie about our will to survive and brotherhood. The incredible Aaron Taylor-Johnson stars with the world’s second-biggest wrestler-turned-actor John Cena—this could go either way. (May 12)

War Machine

Netflix has been churning out incredible material in 2017 and this film, written and directed by David Michôd (Animal Kingdom), will almost certainly be another great one. This parody-esque modern war story follows a charming and victorious four-star General (Brad Pitt) during the rise and fall of his command of NATO forces, all through a journalist’s hard-hitting exposé. This has an all-star cast and may be a serious contender for Netflix at the Oscars. (May 26)

The Blockbusters

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Two words: cautiously optimistic. The talent is there. (May 12)

Alien: Covenant

Alien is perfect. Aliens is great. Prometheus… well, maybe not good, but at least this one looks awesome. (May 19)
