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.

House of Lies - PARAMOUNT
  • Paramount
  • House of Lies

House of Lies: Season 2
Marty (Don Cheadle), Jeannie (Kristen Bell) and the rest of the management consultants deal with a new CEO, a douchebag Matt Damon, a dildo mogul (Adam Brody) and a whole lotta sex and drugs. Way more fun than House of Cards. (Paramount)

American Joyride
A drug dealer and his girlfriend, on the run from a murderous loan shark, drive to Mississippi to make one last big-money deal, all the while videotaping it because, of course, they’re going to become reality TV stars. TLC already has the rights. (ANconnect)

Big Ass Spider!
An exterminator (Greg Grunberg) and a security guard (Lombardo Boyar) fight to save Los Angeles from, as you may have gathered from the title, a larger-than-usual arachnid from space. If you loved Sharknado, you’ll tolerate this. (Epic Pictures Group)

Hidden Away
A woman (Emmanuelle Vaugier) fakes her own death and assumes a new identity to escape her abusive husband (Ivan Sergei), who easily tracks her down—so she’s not really all that Hidden Away, now is she? Consistency, people. (Vivendi)

Thanks For Sharing
The feel-bad-then-slightly-less-bad tale of several addicts (including Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim Robbins, Josh Gad, Pink and Patrick Fugit) struggling to figure whether this is supposed to be a comedy or a drama. (Roadside Attractions)
