[Movie News] In Theaters This Week – November 1, 2019

The season for scary movies may be coming to a close, but there are still plenty of new movies to choose from this weekend. An animated movie about arctic animals, a biopic about Harriet Tubman, the next movie in the Terminator saga is out, and much more!

Arctic Dogs

Swifty the Arctic Fox works in the mailroom of the Arctic Blast Delivery Service, but he has much bigger dreams. He yearns to become a Top Dog, the Arctic’s star husky couriers. To prove he can do it, he commandeers one of the sleds and delivers a mysterious package to a secret location. Once there, he stumbles on a hidden fortress overseen by the nefarious Otto Von Walrus. The blubbery evil genius commands an army of oddly polite puffin henchmen. Swifty discovers Otto Von Walrus’ villainous plan to drill beneath the snow-packed surface to unleash masses of ancient gas to melt the Arctic and become the world’s supreme ruler. To stop this sinister scheme, Swifty enlists the help of his friends: PB, a neurotic polar bear, Lemmy, a scatterbrained albatross, Jade Fox, a brainy engineer, Leopold and Bertha, two conspiracy theorist otters and Magda, his curmudgeonly boss.

Inside Game

In 2007, when NBA referee Tim Donaghy got caught betting on games he worked, he said two men associated with the Gambino crime family – a bookie named Baba Battista and a drug dealer named Tommy Martino – threatened to kill his family if he didn’t give them gambling picks. That’s what Donaghy told the FBI, that’s what he told 60 Minutes, and that’s what he testified in court. But that’s not what really happened. That’s not even close. INSIDE GAME is the untold true story of one of the biggest scandals in sports history.
