LISTEN: The Reel Report with Ria Renouf – Friday, September 4 2015

This week: Straight Outta Compton wins the box office again, there’s only one new release on the docket, and my Flashback Friday Bluray release involves dry cleaning…what?

Sorry for the delay, here, folks! I’m still trying to figure out how to juggle time in the newsroom AND in the theatres. I’ve had to pass on a bunch of press screenings…but alas, we press on.

Straight Outta Compton, as of Tuesday, September 1st, is now the highest grossing biopic of all time – surpassing Will Smith’s Ali.

My discussion of trailers is based on a previous post that you can find here.

Coming to home video: The Age of Adaline, and my Flashback Friday recommendation is The Man Who Wasn’t There.

Yes, it’s about a chain smoking barber who’s looking for money to invest in a dry cleaning business. Shenanigans ensue.

On Friday, September 11th, we’ll talk about all the new releases, the winners and losers at the box office, and the Vancouver International Film Festival! Tune in at 9:15 AM to News Talk 980 CKNW – and the Jon McComb Show!

Keep it real!
