Coming Soon: February 28th, 2020

Welcome back to Back Lot 605’s Coming Soon column! As always, we’ll be previewing all of the weekend’s new movie options, from the new theatrical releases that you can see (or can’t see… heh-heh-heh, get it?) to what’s coming soon to streaming services, plus special happenings and much more. Here’s what’s coming soon for the weekend of February 28th, 2020:

In Theaters Nationwide

The Invisible Man

The role of the Invisible Man has challenged many actors over the years: Claude Rains, Kevin Bacon… umm, Chevy Chase? But now, Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Hill House) takes the reins, in this timely new adaptation. However, he’s not the actual lead of this version: That honor goes to Elisabeth Moss, playing the long-abused girlfriend who tries to escape his clutches, only to learn that he’s committed suicide and has left her $5 million, on the condition that she’s not deemed to be insane. However, it soon becomes clear that he’s managing to torment her from beyond the grave… or so it would appear, because, well, the movie’s title explains all.

Leigh Whannell, writer/co-creator of the Saw and Insidious franchises (and, most recently, writer/director of 2018’s under-appreciated sci-fi riff Upgrade), writes and directs this new spin on the classic tale, which also kicks off Blumhouse’s new series of movies based on the classic Universal monster franchises. Let’s just hope this reboot fares better than 2017’s The Mummy… or Dracula Untold… or Van Helsing. Wow, that’s a lot of abandoned Dark Universes! (Opens in theaters nationwide Thursday night, February 27th, with previews beginning at 7:00 PM.)

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising

Funimation’s latest nationwide anime theatrical mega-event kicks off this week, following such previous successes as Dragon Ball Super: Broly and the previous My Hero Academia movie, Two Heroes. This time, Deku and friends take on a new (and yet familiar, perhaps?) villain while visiting Nabu Island.

As with Funimation’s previous releases, there will be different sets of days where the dubbed and subtitled versions will be shown. Dubbed screenings will be held on Wednesday, February 26th, Saturday, February 29th, and Wednesday, March 4th; while subtitled screenings will be on Friday, February 28th, Tuesday, March 3rd, and Saturday, March 7th. In addition, both dubbed and subbed screenings will be occurring in select large-format theaters for one night only, on Wednesday, February 26th.

New Streaming Premieres

All the Bright Places

Hot on the cusp of their To All the Boys sequel, Netflix debuts another teen romance this weekend… one that’s much more on the tearjerking side. Elle Fanning stars as Violet, a high schooler who has retreated from social life in the wake of her sister’s death in a car accident… one that Violet blames herself for. Justice Smith plays Finch, a bipolar and possibly suicidal classmate who tries to get Violet out of her funk… and finds a soulmate in the process. Also starring Keegan-Michael Key and Luke Wilson. Directed by Brett Haley (Hearts Beat Loud, Sam Elliott’s The Hero). (Premieres Friday, February 28th on Netflix.)
