[Movie News] In Theaters This Week – August 7, 2020

Many theaters are still not open in the US. Some have had to close again due to health restrictions being put back in place or simply due to a lack of people coming in. While many big-name movies are pushing their release dates back even further, or choosing to premiere overseas first, a number of movies are still determined to make their way to theaters.

This week, we have trio of new movies out – a writer who goes back to her alma mater and becomes highly involved in the lives of a group of students there, a film about an artist who travels to Italy to sell the house left behind by his late wife, and a Korean zombie film that is the follow-up to Train to Busan.
