- A man life is nearly ruined after he is arrested for missing a court date and maxing his credit card. He’s been the subject of identity theft and flies to Miami to bring her back to Denver to confess to her crimes.
- Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. Directed by Seth Gordon. Rated R.
- After a Zombie Apocycalpse, R is a zombie that comes back to life slowly after he falls in love. Then the zombies and humans band together. This is already better than Twilight already because it is a Romantic Comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Also it is based on a book previously, so you could read that as well.
- Stars Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, Dave Franco, Analeigh Tipton, Cory Hardrict, and John Malkovich. Directed by Jonathan Levine. Rated PG-13.
- Hansel & Gretel defeated the witch like in the story but then became witch hunters, tracking down and killing them. Now they are trying to prevent a bunch of children from being used in a grand sacrifice. This is kind of a short movie at 88 minutes.
- Stars Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, and Peter Stormare. Directed by Tommy Wirkola. Rated R.
- Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a small town sherriff near the border after leaving the LAPD after some a mishap. When a drug lord gets out of an FBI convoy, the government uses the small town as a last ditch effort to stop him. This is the first starring role for Arnold since Terminator 3.
- Stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro, Luis Guzmán, Jaimie Alexander, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford, and Genesis Rodriguez. Directed by Kim Ji-woon. Rated R.
- This is the movie that was supposed to come out in the summer but was postponed after the Dark Knight Rise theater shooting, especially because there was a shooting scene in a theater in the movie. Supposedly this scene has been removed but I’m not sure. Supposedly “Inspired” by a true story, a band of cops purposefully working outside the law, try to take down a powerful mob in 1940s Los Angeles.
- Stars Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Peña, and Robert Patrick. Directed by Ruben Fleischer. Rated R.
- The best way to put this is that it’s the Fracking propaganda movie. This is one of the biggest industries in the US now and this movie doesn’t contain science on either side. So take it at face value. A gas company sends out two salesmen to convince a small town to lease it’s land. Then trouble begins.
- Stars Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Frances McDormand, and Hal Holbrook. Directed by Gus Van Sant. Rated R.
NOTE: These movies come out on a Tuesday instead of a Friday. It’s weird.
- This is the newest movie from Quentin Tarantino that supposedly is a cross over with Man with the Iron Fist. (Though I have no idea how or why.) A former slave teams up with a German Doctor to become a bounty hunter. He eventually goes to a plantation and have to fight their way out.
- Stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Dennis Christopher, James Remar, Michael Parks, and Don Johnson. Directed by Quentin Tarantino. Rated R.
- Not sure how well this will do in the Box Office since I’ve seen NO advertising for it at all. No commercials, no trailer, nothing. Plus the character of Jack Reacher is described as 6’5″ with 220 or more pounds of muscle. But stars Tom Cruise who is like 5’7″. I guess this is what happens when he’s the producer for the movie as well. This film is based off of a book from 2005 called One Shot by Lee Child. A sniper kills five different people and arrest a former army shooter. Jack Reacher, a former Army Police Officer, thinks that he’s been framed and is determined to get to the bottom of things.
- Stars Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Werner Herzog, David Oyelowo, and Robert Duvall. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie. Rated PG-13.
