Opening This Week – Annabelle: Creation, The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

 


 

Annabelle: Creation

Anxiously awaiting the fourth film in The Conjuring series? Annabelle: Creation opens this week and has been described as a movie that “finally gets it right for the living doll.”

Annabelle: Creation is the origin story of the demonic doll, who was introduced in the 2013 movie, The Conjuring. The Conjuring was widely received as a success, while Annabelle fell short of audience expectations. Luckily, the Annabelle: Creation has given the spin off series hope.

Annabelle, a beloved 7-year-old daughter of Sam and Esther Mullins, is killed in a tragic car accident.  Several years later, the grieving couple welcome in a group of Catholic, orphaned girls into their home as a haven after their orphanage is unlivable. In no time, Janice and her BFF Linda, stumble upon the dead daughter’s old bedroom and find a doll that has taken on a life of its own.

 

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

 


 

For those of you that are looking for something a little lighter, The Nut Job 2 is a great option. The Nut Job 2 is a sequel to the hit animated movie, The Nut Job (2014). Surly, the purple squirrel and his park animal friends inhabit a new, luscious park. Soon, they are over powered by a corrupt mayor who wants to bulldoze their beloved home replace it with an amusement park. To save their new home from the corrupt mayor, Surly enlists the help from a street gang of mice to help thwart the Mayor’s plan and save their home.

With an all-star cast starring Will Arnett, Jackie Chan, Maya Rudolph, and more, The Nut Job 2 is bound to be a great successor in The Nut Job series.

Spiderman Homecoming - Free Facepainting 

There is nothing quite as jarring as the merging of worlds. Whether it’s your new beau or belle meeting your family or eating chocolate covered bacon, it’s hard to forget when you see or taste something you have never experienced before- when two different worlds come together.

That’s kind of what it was like when Marvel dove into the world of live-action remakes. Bringing comics to life is bringing the fantastical into reality. The fantasy becomes tangible and is no longer simply a fantasy.

People are very protective when an actor or actress is cast as their beloved comic book character. The young Spiderman makes an appearance in Captain America and luckily, the new Spidey quickly won us over. But, what we really love about Tom Holland’s roll is how he perfectly embodies the awkward tween persona that is as lovable as a puppy.

In Spiderman Homecoming, Peter lands an ‘internship’ with Stark Enterprises. Tony Stark, who is also Iron Man, begins to teach young Peter the ways of an Avenger as the young hero begins to embrace his new-found identity. With every teenager, there is a natural rebellion that occurs and becomes a big theme throughout the movie. As Peter learns more about his powers, he attempts to balance school life with his super hero responsibilities. Soon, he is put to the test when the evil Vulture threatens everything he loves.

Critics are raving about this new film and it is sure to be a huge hit. In fact, to celebrate we are having ANOTHER summer event at Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater. We will be having a retro red-carpet event with FREE face painting and photos with Spiderman! From 7-9pm on July 7th & 8th in LUBBOCK.

At Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater, we believe that a movie experience should be more than simply seeing a movie. It’s a memory. We want to help make your time with us a fun and unforgettable night for your family.

Not only are you getting an entertainment filled night, you get two movies for the price of one! And we have the coolest combo of movies around: Spiderman Homecoming and Wonder Woman. This is a once in a lifetime chance to watch these incredible super heroes back-to-back on the big screen! Check out our show times for Spiderman Homecoming and Wonder Woman here!

Minion Meet & Greet for Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3 is coming out this Friday and it’s one of the biggest family films of the summer. Gru is back and better than ever with his 3 adorable girls and his minions that function like his 3000 additional children.

Despicable Me 3 is the 3rd movie installment in the Despicable Me series. The franchise “has grossed over $955 million domestically and 2.7 billion worldwide with the first three movies (including spinoff Minions).” Despicable Me 3 was an inevitable next step and is expected to smash the box office.

What’s Despicable Me 3 About?

After failing to capture the most wanted villain Balthazaar Bratt, Gru and his wife Lucy are fired from the Anti-Villain League. Soon after, he learns that he has a long-lost twin. With an abundance of new found time, Gru travels to Freedonia to meet Dru. Dru is a blonde-haired version of Gru and tries to convince Gru to join the dark side again. Sibling rivalry ensues and the lovable villain gone good, Gru, has to face his sibling, a former 80s child star villain, and what he wants his own future to look like.

Steve Carrell plays dual roles in this movie as both Dru and Gru. South Park’s star Trey Parker joins the all-star cast of Kristen Wiig Miranda Cosgrove, Russel Brand, Jenny Slate and more! There is so much to love about animated movies and their random love of hodgepodge casting.

Meet a Minion Red Carpet Event 

To celebrate this beloved series, we are having a minion red carpet event on Friday, June 30th and Saturday June 31st! Be sure to arrive early to Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater with your family, grab some food, meet your favorite minions, and watch the premiere of Despicable Me 3!
