Coming Soon: June 19th, 2020

Hello, and welcome this week’s edition of Back Lot 605’s Coming Soon column! We’ve got the lowdown on all the new VOD and streaming movies debuting this weekend. Here’s what’s coming soon for the week of June 19th, 2020:

New Streaming and VOD Premieres

You Should Have Left

First up this week, we have Blumhouse’s latest genre offering, from writer/director David Koepp, who broke out in the 1990s and early 2000s writing such blockbuster screenplays as Jurassic Park, The Lost World, and Spider-Man, and whom in recent years has focused on directing, including Stir of Echoes, Premium Rush, and most recently, umm… Mortdecai. (Yeah.) He re-teams here with his Stir of Echoes star Kevin Bacon, who plays – get this – a blockbuster screenwriter who’s trying to finish a script for a big sequel. So, he moves to a remote house in Wales with his super-young actress wife, played by Amanda Seyfried, and their daughter. But their relationship is already on the rocks, and Bacon’s past isn’t exactly pristine, either… and when the house itself starts making Bacon go crazy, then you can imagine where things are headed from here. 🙂 (Premieres Thursday, June 18th on VOD services.)


It may not seem like it, but it’s been nearly four years since Joseph Gordon-Levitt starred in a movie! (I’m not counting the brief voice cameos he did for his buddy Rian Johnson in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Knives Out.) But this weekend, we finally get his first big turn since 2016’s Snowden. He plays Tobias, a co-pilot on Flight 7500 from Berlin to Paris… but when the plane is hijacked by terrorists and the pilot is seriously injured, Tobias has to step up and try to handle the situation. I should also mention the movie’s big narrative hook: 7500 takes place almost entirely within the plane’s cockpit… so this is very much The JGL Show, folks! This is the feature debut of writer/director Patrick Vollrath. (Premieres Friday, June 19th on Amazon Prime Video.)

Wasp Network

Hot on the heels of last week’s Spike Lee premiere of Da 5 Bloods, here comes another Netflix movie from a prestige filmmaker: Olivier Assayas, the French director who’s notched 5 entries in the Criterion Collection thus far, including Carlos, Clouds of Sils Maria, and Personal Shopper. This film is based on the true story of 5 Cuban spies who are deployed to Florida in the late 1980s and early 1990s to infiltrate rebel groups. Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Ana de Armas star. (Premieres Friday, June 19th on Netflix.)

Nobody Knows I’m Here

Also dropping on Netflix this week is this Spanish-language drama, which provides a rare serious leading role for Jorge Garcia, whom you know best as the lovable Hurley from Lost. He plays Memo, a former child singer with a beautiful voice, who has since become reclusive and moved to a Chilean sheep farm to escape the world. But a woman named Marta enters his life, setting off a series of events that lead him to confront his past. This is the feature directing debut of Gaspar Antillo. (Premieres Wednesday, June 24th on Netflix.)

Scare Package

Finally, we have this week’s Shudder offering, which is actually a 7-part horror-comedy anthology! Built around the framing device of a video rental store (with each segment contained on a VHS tape), this movie features such directors as: Rian Johnson’s other BFF Noah Segan (who also appears on-screen); stand-up comedian Baron Vaughn (best known as the voice of Tom Servo on the Netflix MST3K revival); production designers Courtney & Hillary Andujar (whose design work includes Girl on the Third Floor); Anthony Cousins, Emily Hagins; Chris McInroy; and Aaron B. Koontz (who helms one segment as well as the framing device). (Premieres Thursday, June 18th on Shudder.)

Dances with Wolves on the Big Screen!

Since we are a South Dakota-based film site, we would be remiss if we didn’t specifically call out the rare opportunity to see South Dakota’s all-time greatest movie showcase in an actual theater! Starting this Friday, June 19th, the West Mall 7 in Sioux Falls is bringing Kevin Costner’s 1990 classic Dances with Wolves back to the big screen! Filmed in South Dakota, this movie grossed nearly $185 million at the box office, and ultimately won 7 Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Best Original Score.
