[Movie News] In Theaters This Week – February 19, 2021

In Theaters 3.6.20

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.

Two of the new movies out this week are thrillers about the drug trade, but there is also a drama about a woman who decides to become a nomad living in a camper van, as well as a comedy that is a new take on the 1945 film Blithe Sprit!
