New in Theaters: “Renfield” and “The Pope’s Exorcist”
Nicholas Hoult plays Renfield, Dracula’s long-suffering servant. He does his every bidding and lures in prey for his master, who’s played by none other than Nicolas Cage.
After being a servant for centuries, Renfield wants to see what else life has to offer. While in New Orleans, he falls in love with a traffic cop played by Awkwafina. He then gains the courage to stand up to his boss to try to break free.
2. “The Pope’s Exorcist“ (R) Trailer
Russell Crowe plays the Pope’s exorcist, who uncovers a centuries-old conspiracy that the Vatican has desperately tried to keep hidden. You might also recognize the Pope (Franco Nero) as the guy who ran Rome’s Continental Hotel in “John Wick 2”.
It’s based on the memoirs of Father Gabriele Amorth, a Catholic priest who claims to have performed thousands of exorcisms for the Vatican. Father Amorth also helped found the International Association of Exorcists who, as we learned earlier this week, aren’t very impressed with the movie’s trailer.
