New in Theaters: 'The November Man' and 'As Above/So Below'

The November Man

The dog days of summer are still upon us as evidenced by this week's releases. New in theaters this Labor Day weekend are Relativity Media's The November Man and Universal's As Above/So Below. Let's see how these two will fare at the box office.

In The November Man, Pierce Brosnan plays an ex-CIA operative who is pulled back into the game to protect a witness (Olga Kurylenko) and work with his former protégé (Luke Bracey) to unravel a conspiracy within the spy agency.

One would think that the pairing of a former James Bond and a former Bond girl could go a long way in making The November Man rise above the run-of-the-mill thriller, but, unfortunately, that's exactly what it is. The movie is projected to make around $10 million over the four day weekend.

The catacombs under Paris is the setting of Universal's found-footage horror flick As Above/So Below, where a couple of treasure-seeking teenagers find themselves facing their worst fears.

Critics applaud the Dowdle brothers for injecting new techniques to spice up the found-footage genre, but that won't be enough to convince moviegoers to buy a ticket. Above/So Below is projected to make between $9 to $11 million over the four day weekend.

For a limited time, the original Ghostbusters is playing in over 700 locations to celebrate the movie's 30th anniversary. Those who want to catch the remastered movie on the big screen is advised to seek it out.
