Catch it in theaters or stream it on HBO Max: 'Reminiscence'
Hugh Jackman plays scientist Nick Bannister—a "private investigator of the mind"—in the feature directorial debut from Lisa Joy, best known as one of the main brains behind another science fiction thriller, the HBO hit series Westworld. In this one, Bannister's innovated a technique that allows him to tunnel back in time through people's memories, which is all well and good until he becomes obsessed with one of his clients (namely Mae, played by Rebecca Ferguson) and things start to get a little sticky. One cool thing: As part of the interactive ad campaign for the film, you can upload your own avatar and info into this website and find out what it feels like to be fawned over as one of the mad scientist's personal obsessions. Pretty wild.
In theaters: 'The Night House'
An expertly crafted piece of horror from director David Bruckner—who's also at the helm of the forthcoming installment of the Hellraiser franchise—The Night House pits Beth (Rebecca Hall) against the elements, and the memory of her husband, who has recently died by suicide, as she tries to sort out her life alone in a house in the woods. Of course, this is a perfect recipe for all kinds of spooky stuff to befall her, and Bruckner wastes no chance to run her through the gauntlet. Hall's performance here is impressive—alone worth the price of the ticket. The film also stars Sarah Goldberg, Evan Jonigkeit and Stacy Martin.
