MoviefiedNYC’s Opening this Weekend: August 21

Opening Aug 21 Collage

We are Summer Movies, come to lure you away from your computer… come dance down the theater aisle, dig your fingers into your popcorn and bask in the glow of the big screen. August is still loaded with an action flick or two (Fantastic Four, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Hitman: Agent 47), a strong bouquet of indies (Mistress America, The Diary of a Teenage Girl and Cop Car) and few random selections I’m particularly excited about Straight Outta Compton, Ricki and The Flash (I’m all about Rick Springfield, OK and Meryl Streep). So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
