Two wildly different offerings hit theaters this weekend. The first is a sci-fi/action/thriller about monsters fighting giant robots; the other is the sequel to a surprisingly successful comedy featuring a set of four men acting like children.
Which would you expect to win the Fourth of July weekend: the Disney-produced, Johnny Depp-starring revival of an iconic American hero or the sequel to a French-made, Steve Carell-starring animated movie about a lovable supervillain? Well, it looks like American audiences simply aren't interested in westerns, even the uber-expensive ones starring Captain Jack Sparrow with a bird on his head. 'Despicable Me 2' destroyed 'The Lone Ranger' over the holiday weekend. Like, totally wrecked it. Mercilessly.
We have another comedy/action pairing of flicks hitting theaters this weekend. The first is a reunion of sorts between the director and co-star of the summer 2011 hit 'Bridesmaids,' and the second should sound oddly familiar to anyone who caught 'Olympus Has Fallen' back in March.
It's another big weekend at the cineplex, with the return of one of the most famous superheroes of all time, plus an end-of-the-world story about a bunch of stoners played by actors playing themselves. Should be fun whichever path you take.
The summer movie season keeps chugging right along. (Yes, we realize it isn't technically summer yet, but as far as movies are concerned, it is.) This weekend we get a dose of comedy and a dash of the spooks, so take your pick, moviegoers.
You've been hearing about it now for months, and it's finally here: the latest installment in Marvel's highly lucrative 'Avengers' film family, 'Iron Man 3.' Apparently all the other movies were a bit scared off, and considering the gigantic openings of the lasttwo 'Iron Man' flicks, it's hard to blame them.
We're still two months away from the official start of summer, but we have our first "summer blockbuster"-type film opening this weekend at our local Marcus Theatres, along with a smaller, darker crime picture with an absurdly good-looking cast.
Looks like we're in for a thrilling weekend at our local Marcus Theatres. The one new release is a remake of a 1980s horror classic, and we also get a 3-D-updated edition of a major '90s sci-fi blockbuster.
You can't imagine two films more different than 'The Croods' and 'Olympus Has Fallen,' but right now the two of them sit on top of the box office chart, both temporarily linked by the fact that a bunch of people apparently wanted to see them this weekend. It's the first time in forever that two films have opened to over $30 million at the same time...but it wasn't golden for all of the new releases.
It's a busy weekend at our local Marcus Theatres. Comedy, action, animated fare for the kids—a solid mix for a good range of audiences, those of you who aren't sitting in front of the TV watching March Madness, that is.
