King Arthur and a kidnapped mother and daughter are among what’s headed to theaters this weekend in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Snatched. Also in theaters this weekend are Alec Baldwin, Diane Lane and Arnaud Viard in Paris Can Wait and Eva Longoria’s Lowriders, which highlights East L.A.’s vibrant car culture.
Here is what The Hollywood Reporter‘s critics are saying about the weekend’s new offerings.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Guy Ritchie reboots the King Arthur tale starring Charlie Hunnam, who pulls the famed Excalibur sword out of stone to battle his way back to taking his rightful throne from his greedy uncle. “Loud, bombastic and thuddingly obvious, this is a vulgar movie for vulgar times,” writes THR chief film critic Todd McCarthy.

Paris Can Wait
Eleanor Coppola’s debut feature follows Arnaud Viard and Diane Lane as two middle-aged acquaintances on a two-day road trip from Cannes to Paris. Alec Baldwin also stars as Lane’s husband. THR chief film critic Todd McCarthy calls the film a “slight but charming travelogue/food-a-thon” and writes that Lane is a “pleasure throughout” the film. He adds that Coppola “mostly keeps things buoyant and light-hearted, injecting mild comedy here and there.” Read the full review here.
