Director: Gilles Paquet-Brenner

Starring: Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan

Release: August 7th, 2015

This movie is about to be a downgrade on a whole lot of levels.  Charlize Theron was just in Fury Road; this is a downgrade.  The book this movie is based on was written by Gillian Flyyn, the author of Gone Girl, which really wasn’t that great anyway; this is a downgrade.  Nicholas Hoult was also in Fury Road, as well as the underappreciated Young Ones; this is a downgrade.  Tye Sheridan, who has blow-your-mind up-and-coming talent, was phenomenal in Mud and Joe; this is a downgrade.  Why would I want to watch a thriller that can’t possibly be as good as a dozen movies I can think of off the top of my head?
