In Fox’s Monday-night drama THE PASSAGE, Saniyya Sidney stars as ten-year-old Amy Bellafonte.

Krzykowski Distributor: RLJ Entertainment Release Date (theatrical and on demand): February 8, 2019 It may seem hard to spoil THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT, seeing that two big plot points are in the title. However, while those events have weight and give the movie their shape, writer/director Robert D. Krzykowski is much more interested in the effect these have on the title character, Calvin Barr. Calvin is played in the film’s “present” (apparently […]Read On »
