August 30th, 2023Hidden Gem Movies In 2023

From all the exciting comic book movies on the horizon, the chilling horror movies that are sure to make us scream, 2023 has offered audiences with a variety of films that are cinematic hidden gems.

Some moviegoers may find it an especially rewarding experience to stumble upon the films like, Wes Anderson’s ASTEROID CITY or A24’s TALK TO ME, or Ben Platt’s comedy THEATER CAMP. Allow us to help narrow your search for films with big potential in 2023 that you should consider checking out when they head to AMC Theatres.

Dumb Money

Dumb Money is the ultimate David vs. Goliath tale, based on the insane true story of everyday people who flipped the script on Wall Street and got rich by turning GameStop into the world’s hottest company. In 2021, a regular guy Keith Gill ignites a movement by sinking his life savings into the stock and posting about it. As a stock tip becomes a movement, everyone gets rich – until the billionaires fight back, and both sides find their worlds turned upside down.

The thought-provoking biopic, DUMB MONEY is directed by Craig Gillespie and features a star-studded cast that includes Paul Dano, Sebastian Stan, Seth Rogen, Pete Davidson, and Shailene Woodley.

DUMB MONEY opens September 15


Priscilla

In 2022, director Baz Luhrmann showed the world a new, visually hypnotic take on the life of one of pop music’s most influential icons with ELVIS. In 2023, writer and director Sofia Coppola will tell that story from the point of view of the musician’s wife in PRISCILLA – starring Cailee Spaeny in the title role of Priscilla Presley and Jacob Elordi as “The King.”

PRISCILLA opens October 27


The Holdovers

Academy Award Nominee, Paul Giamatti returns to the big screen in Alexander Payne’s THE HOLDOVERS. Set in 1970, a universally disliked professor at a prep school, Barton Academy stays on campus to supervise students who couldn't go home. After a few days, only one person is left: a troublemaking 17-year-old named Angus, a good student whose bad behavior always threatens to get him expelled. Along with the school's head cook Mary, whose own son was recently lost in Vietnam, the three form an unlikely bond as they spend Christmas together during two very snowy weeks in New England.

THE HOLDOVERS opens October 27


Next Goal Wins

Despite getting his start as a filmmaker with indie comedies like WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS and HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE and even winning an Oscar® for penning the satirical period drama, JOJO RABBIT, Taika Waititi is most commonly associated these days as the director of hit Marvel movies – namely 2017’s THOR: RAGNAROK and its 2022 follow-up, THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER. The New Zealand-based multi-hyphenate appears to be returning to his roots with NEXT GOAL WINS – the story of an underdog soccer team and the coach (Michael Fassbender) who helped turn their luck around, which was previously told in a 2014 documentary of the same name.

 NEXT GOAL WINS opens November 17


Poor Things

Academy Award® nominee Yorgos Lanthimos is reuniting with his THE FAVOURITE star, Emma Stone, and collaborating with many talented performers for the first time – including Willem Dafoe, Mark Ruffalo, and more – for his latest effort, POOR THINGS. The Greek filmmaker appears to be letting his exquisitely inventive and deeply surreal visual style run, perhaps, wilder than ever with his and screenwriter Tony McNamara’s adaptation of Alasdair Gray’s novel about the bizarre evolution of a woman miraculously resurrected from the dead.

 POOR THINGS opens December 8
