Getaway 2013 Movie Poster

– This is not a remake to a 1970s movie as apparently some had thought, but a new original story. A man has his wife kidnapped and must follow the orders of a mysterious man that’s spying on him in order to get his wife back. While most of the things that he’s supposed to do are serious crimes, he’s joined by a young girl who tried to hijack his car. He was supposed to kill her but of course she proves valuable and has computer skills.

– Star Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, Jon Voight, and Rebecca Budig. Directed by Courtney Solomon. Rated PG-13.

The Mortal Instruments - City of Bones Movie Poster

– This movie is the first based on a series of books. This movie centers around Clary Fray as she finds out that she is a shadowhunter, and is able to fight evil monsters and see things others can’t see. She must team up with other shadowhunters in order to find the Mortal Cup and save her mom (who is a former shadowhunter) before it is too late. This looks like it’s really trying to become a new Twilight, though I’ve heard that the series is much better written.

– Stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zegers, Lena Headey, Kevin Durand, Aidan Turner, Jemima West, Godfrey Gao, CCH Pounder, Jared Harris, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Directed by Harald Zwart. Rated PG-13.

Note: This movie comes out on August 21, 2013, a Wednesday.

Kick Ass 2 Movie Poster

– This a sequel to the 2010 movie, about “Real Life” super heroes based on the comic book. I didn’t really like the first one though it did have some moments thanks to Hit Girl and Nicolas Cage. This time things are amped up even more as the would be villain from the first one comes back with a vengeance and makes things even worse for all the heroes.

– Stars  Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chlöe Grace Moretz, Jim Carrey, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Directed by Jeff Wadlow. Rated R.

This is the weirdest week in a while. First two come out on Wednesday, August 7th, and the other two come out on Friday, August 9th. I have no reason why as it’s not even a holiday.

Percy Jackson - Sea of Monsters Movie Poster

– The franchise gets a great shot in the arm as from all looks of it, they try to fix what they broke in the first movie. This time Percy must search to find the Golden Fleece in order to protect Camp Half-Blood. Percy has some help from his new half brother and others to help him on his quest and finds out his true destiny. This one was made on a smaller budget, but you’d never notice.

– Stars Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Leven Rambin, Jake Abel, Stanley Tucci, and Nathan Fillion. Directed by Thor Freudenthal. Rated PG.

All the while the other Smurfs are trying to find her and get her back.

– The X-Men franchise gets more and more confusing as this one supposedly takes place after the rest of the movies (has Jean Grey?), though apparently is based off a series of comics. Wolverine tries to go it alone and heads to Japan where someone may have a way to help him stop regenerating forever.

– Stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Haruhiko Yamanouchi. Directed by James Mangold. Rated PG-13.

He is recruited by Lucy Wilde and the Anti-Villain League to go against El Macho and try to capture him.
