Political thrillers action-wise, pardon the pun, can be really hit or miss. Hoping it’s the former with one of the four wide release movies being released in theaters this month.
Seems like, aside from Tenet, streaming has more exciting new movies coming out in September.
A contemporary political thriller set in the Middle East and filled with suspense and intrigue, inspired by true events, and ripped from today’s headlines. Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ, Person of Interest, Deja Vu) plays an American journalist/blogger who is kidnapped while attending a conference in the Middle East. Taken hostage by the Iranian regime, he is put on trial for trumped-up charges of espionage. His wife, who works for the State Department, quickly realizes that the American government can do nothing. Feeling desperate and alone, she goes to Iran to try to free him herself. This exciting story sheds light on the plight of Americans currently held captive in Iran, about whom the world has forgotten.Everything You Need to Know About Infidel Movie (2020)
This trailer is too paint by the numbers and nothing jumps out making this a must see. Beggars can’t be choosers in September, however, for those of us that just love seeing new movies in theaters, so it’s on our watchlist this month.
The storyline doesn’t seem all that fresh either, but maybe there will be some surprises here. Have seen plenty of cases where the movie was better than the trailer. Are you looking forward to seeing this one in theaters or waiting for it on streaming?
Infidel opens wide in United States theaters (those that are reopened) on September 18, 2020.
