New Movies This Weekend
Two new movies open at Chatham Galaxy Cinemas this weekend.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (PG)
Shameik Moore plays Miles Morales, a kid who becomes the Spider-Man of his reality and then somehow crosses paths with more spider-heroes from other dimensions.
The other heroes include Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, John Mulaney as the talking pig Spider-Ham, and Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir, a darker version of Spidey in a hat whose costume is based on a World War I airman’s uniform.
Spider-Man Noir is from a gritty universe where he’s lived through the Great Depression. So they wrote a lot of 1930s slang for him and had Nic Cage channel performances of Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney for his lines.
Mortal Engines (PG)
An apocalyptic movie set in a future where major cities are now armored vehicles and “London” is a predator that attacks the smaller cities for their resources.
