Look For This Week’s Limited Releases In Theaters Near You

Several limited releases will be available in select theaters this week.

1. The Benefactor

First on the list is a new drama titled The Benefactor with Richard Gere (Unfaithful, Chicago), Dakota Fanning (War of the Worlds, The Twilight Saga: New Moon), and Theo James (Underworld: Awakening, Insurgent) about a philanthropist who construes the lives of young couples in an attempt to relive his past. This will be the first feature-length film by writer/director Andrew Renzi (Karaoke!, Fishtail), who is also lined up to write an upcoming biographical film on Janis Joplin.

2. Moonwalkers

Moonwalkers is a new comedy from director Antoine Bardou-Jacquet (Wacky Races) starring Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy) and Rupert Grint, aka Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter film franchise. The film focuses on the conspiracy theory in which legendary film director Stanley Kubrick (2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange) is recruited by the CIA to stage the 1969 Lunar landing. Perlman stars as the stiff CIA agent tasked with recruiting Kubrick, and Grint plays a sketchy rock band manager who Perlman is forced to team up with to pull it off. This one definitely seems like its worth giving a chance.

3. A Perfect Day

With an all-star cast lead by Oscar-winning actors Benicio Del Toro (Traffic, Sicario) and Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption, Mystic River), this comedic drama follows a group of relief aid workers who must work to resolve a crisis in the middle of an armed war zone. Writer/director Fernando Leon de Aranoa (Mondays in the Sun, Princesas) took up the reigns on this one, which may or may not find success with comedy audiences, despite the excellent filmmaking team behind it.

Nike is wasting no time with their new Lunar Janoski line of kicks. Shortly after dropping the OG black & whites, they’ve decided to release the above “Lazer Crimson” pair for the upcoming summer months. The new Lunar Janoski is a lot lighter and streamlined for a more casual appearance, with that being said; these are still SBs so they should survive a decent amount of wear and tear. If you like what you see, you can cop these now for $110 via Concepts (CNCPTS) or you can hit up your local SB retailer for a more detailed look.
