BOARDING SCHOOL (Film) (31 Aug 2018)
Momentum Pictures
Boaz Yakin's horror/thriller film Boarding School was released in limited theaters on August 31st, 2018, via Momentum Pictures. With these smaller films, they've allowed digital ownership or rental ($10 or $5 respectively on https://amzn.to/2wUyA58)

In the film, 12-year-old Jacob is seen reading comic books, one of which was a copy of COMICS' GREATEST WORLD: CATALYST: AGENT OF CHANGE #1 (Aug 1993) with a cover by George Perez. It should be noted that this is George's only published work for Dark Horse.

Later in the movie, Jacob ended up trading his comics for some trading cards, selling the point, "Who cares! It's a Frank Miller cover!"

This is a weird coming-of-age horror story, so if you don't have the stomach for child abuse or blood, you should skip this one. I thought it was entertaining, despite the fact that most critics did not enjoy the film.
