the best and worst of movie premieres

We continue with the 2022 film course, and if today is Friday, you know what to do a review of all the novelties that land in our movie theaters to take a piece of the cake at the box office this weekend. This day 16 arrive ten new titles of the most varied and for all palates that you can browse below.

The premieres of September 16, 2022

‘The invitation’ (‘The Invitation’, 2022)

  • It is the new film by Jessica M. Thompson, who debuted in 2017 with ‘The light of the moon’ and who signed the series ‘The End’ a couple of years ago.
  • It stars Nathalie Emmanuel, known for her roles as Missandei in ‘Game of Thrones’ and Ramsey in the ‘Fast & Furious’ saga.
  • The version that will hit our theaters is a decaf with a PG-13 rating. The full R-rated version — for adults — will be seen at its streaming launch.
  • Its original title was ‘The Bride’ —The bride—.
  • It may be a bad omen, but it lasts exactly as long as the last vampire movie from Sony: ‘Morbius’.

Criticism in Espinof:
‘The Invitation’: a pleasant combination of a gothic romance with ‘Let Me Out’ elevated by a brilliant Nathalie Emmanuel
