In which our movie guru tells you what he really feels about what’s coming to the silver screen. Check in every Wednesday for the weekend’s releases, or grab a copy of our print edition to see the whole month.

THE IDENTICAL

Release date: September 5
Director: Dustin Marcellino
Cast: Blake Rayne, Ashley Judd, Seth Green, Ray Liotta
Website: theidenticalmovie.com

If the names Ashley Judd and Seth Green haven’t scared you off … just wait. The Identical stars former Elvis impersonator (yeah, seriously) Blake Rayne in his debut role as struggling musician Ryan Wade, who just so happens to look exactly like a superstar singer named Drexel Hemsley. When Ryan’s parents (Judd and Liotta) push him to join the family business and become a preacher, the young man sets off to tour the country as a Hemsley impersonator billed as “The Identical.” And if you can’t figure out the twist to this dumb story, you deserve to lose the $10 it’ll cost you to find out.
