This is another dismal winter weekend for movie buffs as only two new films open up in theatres. Opening this week, Seth Rogen and Jay Chou star in the action-comedy, The Green Hornet; plus Vince Vaughn and Kevin James try to laugh it up in the weak Ron Howard comedy, The Dilemma.
Coming out this week on DVD and Blu-ray, Matthew McConaughey plays a monumental jerk forced to change his ways in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, and Seth Rogen stars as a security guard looking for a future in Observe and Report. Plus, a look at the dramedy Lymelife, and Shaun of the Dead arrives on Blu-ray.
Blockbuster season is edging closer, but before it kicks off in earnest we’re getting a mild jump start with one of the first in a hand full of 3-D movies coming out this year, Monsters vs. Aliens. Aside from that family-friendly title, other new releases include the horror film The Haunting in Connecticut, and the action-thriller, 12 Rounds.
This week, Kevin Smith debuts his latest comedy, Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Clint Eastwood‘s tense drama, Changeling, opens in a few more theatres this weekend, plus, Guy Ritchie‘s RocknRolla opens across the country, as well as, The Haunting of Molly Hartley, and The Other End of the Line.
When I first learned that Kevin Smith was going to bring Zack and Miri Make a Porno to the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival, I knew I had to get an interview. Out of everyone coming to this year’s TIFF, Smith was at the top of my list. Not just because he made Clerks, but also because he’s a genuine, talented guy with a knack for realistic dialogue, and uncommon, original characters.
This week, the stoners are running for their lives in the Pineapple Express, while those well-patched jeans are back for another summer as The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 2 ventures into the girlie hamper. Other new arrivals this week include the documentary Roman Polanski: Wanted And Desired, and the based-on-a-true-story wine drama Bottle Shock.
