Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up to ‘Call Me by Your Name’ and the hostage drama starring Susan Sarandon will hit theaters Friday.
This coming weekend’s main attraction is Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria, which depicts the nightmarish events that occur at a dance academy in 1970s Berlin.
Other movies, such as war drama Indivisible and action flick Hunter Killer, will also hit theaters Friday. The latter film features Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman in the leading roles.
Susan Sarandon plays a nurse whose son is captured overseas in Maryam Keshavarz’s sophomore project, Viper Room, and Rowan Atkinson reprises his titular role in Johnny English Strikes Again, the third film in the series. Both are set for a Friday release.

Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 horror film, Suspiria, stars Dakota Johnson as American dancer Susie Bannion, who, after joining a German dance academy, discovers that it’s run by a coven of witches. The film also stars Tilda Swinton as Bannion’s mentor and Mia Goth and Chloe Grace Moretz as fellow students. THR critic David Rooney said in his review that the two-an-a-half hour runtime felt “unnecessarily drawn out” and added, “Guadagnino has made an ambitious homage, but it doesn’t really benefit from its more intellectualized gaze, instead draining the stomach-churning thrills of great horror.”
