We need your help.

City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

Archer: Season 3
ISIS agent Archer takes on pirates, rednecks, Canadians, cyborgs, space mutineers, drug tests and Burt Reynolds in the most twisted and wrong season yet! The Parents TV Council raves, “Smutty, violent, adolescent ‘comedy.’” (Fox)

A fast-food manager (Anne Dowd) receives a call from the police telling her that an employee (Dreama Walker) has stolen money from a customer; invasive psychological shakedowns and gratuitous deep-frying ensue. (Magnolia)

Mega City One cop Dredd (Karl Urban) and his rookie sidekick (Olivia Thirlby) run afoul of a hooker-turned-drug-lord (Lena Headey) in the futuristic action-thriller that would make you forget Judge Dredd … if you already hadn’t. (Lionsgate)

Girls, Guns & Gambling
Gary Oldman, Christian Slater, Powers Boothe and Dane Cook(?) star in a Pulp Fiction rip-off about a bizarro Indian-casino robbery involving Elvis impersonators, Nordic female assassins and, it bears repeating, Dane Cook. (Universal)

Hit & Run
A witness-protection escapee (Dax Shepard) and his fiancee (Kristen Bell) flee to Los Angeles, hunted by the Feds (led by Tom Arnold) and gangsters (led by Bradley Cooper) in the rom-com-action flick nicer critics call “100 minutes long.” (Open Road)
