Movies This Week – 09-08-18
It’s a slow week, where the biggest release is possibly a film about the Pope? I’m finding it hard to include it in our films of the week, but it is made by Wim Wenders, so I guess it has to be there someplace!
Otherwise, there’s a film about the perils of social media, another about a mega shark and a deeply unoriginal film about Teens with strange powers. Explore them below using the powers of your mind alone…
