New Releases for the Week of Monday, August 14, 2017

Posted August 14, 2017 by Thomas James Juretus in Movies

Plenty to choose from in this upcoming week, from indies to a remastered classic to the return of a favorite blue hedgehog. Starcraft Remastered arrives this week from Blizzard, Agents of Mayhem comes from the creators of the Saints Row franchise (so expect plenty of explosions, gunplay, and vehicular carnage), and Sonic returns in Sonic Mania. The new MMO based on Robert E. Howard’s famous barbarian arrives on the Xbox One, and the acclaimed RPG, Undertale makes the jump from PC to the PS4 and the Vita. Hitting home video is the latest movie in the Alien franchise from Ridley Scott, and Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson trade barbs and bullets in The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which hits local cineplexes on Friday. Time now for the list and, as always, release dates are subject to change.
