First, we have John Carter. This big blockbuster from Disney stars, Taylor Kitsch as John Carter along with Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Thomas Haden Church, Mark Strong...yea. It's Disney. There are a lot of Hollywood names in this movie. Disney called; they came a'runnin. Haven't seen the trailer? Been living under a rock for the past 2 months? Well, you're in luck! Here it is!
The next big movie to come out this weekend is Silent House. This is one of those movies that I will send Andrew to go see on his own. This 88 minute, single shot movie looks pretty freaky to me. Silent House stars one of Hollywood's newest "It" girls, Elizabeth Olsen. Yes, the famous Olsen twins' younger sister, and let me tell you, she is fast becoming the actress to go to! Check out the trailer!
Now, this next one is Friends with Kids. I'm sure not many of you have heard of but it has an AMAZING all-star cast: Adam Scott, Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd, Megan Fox and Edward Burns. This quirky little comedy looks super fun and possibly a great way to kill an afternoon with some laughter! Well, here, see for yourself.
Whew, I told you guys there were a lot of movie opening this weekend!
Next we have an Eddie Murphy movie, A Thousand Words. No, it doesn't look very good. And no, we probably won't see it in theatres, but never the less...Eddie Murphy's character, Jake McCall, talks. A lot. When he goes too far with a guru, the guru tells McCall that he only has a thousand words, and when they're gone, he dies. Yeah...
This last one might not be coming to a theatre near you anytime soon because it's a foreign movie but I thought it looked cute and maybe one to Netflix one day. The Decoy Bride stars some actors that may look familiar to some of you: Kelly Macdonald, Alice Eve and David Tennant.
Ok, I think I have sufficiently tired you guys out over this weekend's releases! So here is the list of movies in order of what we're going to see first (or what I will see first):
1. John Carter
2. Friends with Kids
3. Silent House
4. The Decoy Bride
5. A Thousand Words
P.S. Check out the first look at Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in The Lone Ranger
Enjoy the movies, everyone!
