Now that we have all seen the Oscars, we can start scoping out some new movies that will be coming to the screen very soon. There are a number of new film coming out, so here’s a synopsis of some of these new flicks.
“Olympus Has Fallen” – This Action/Thriller stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman. In the movie, a former presidential guard becomes trapped in the White House after a terrorist attack uses his experience to help free the kidnapped president. We’ve seen Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart in many action movies before, such as “Law Abiding Citizen” and “Batman” respectively. We know Morgan Freeman is versed in countless intense movies, so hopefully all this experience will translate into this action movie. This is the type of “all out” action movie that really aims to get your heart pounding. This film comes out on Friday.
“Admission” – This Comedy stars Paul Rudd, Tina Fey, and Nat Wolff. This movie is all about a Princeton admissions officer who compromises her career when she comes across a Princeton applicant who may just be her long lost son. Paul Rudd has graced us with many extremely funny performances in movies like “I Love You Man,” or “Anchorman.” Tina Fey has also shown how funny she can be in movies like “Date Night,” or shows like “Saturday Night Live” or “30 Rock.” However, while these two are capable of splitting our sides, this movie does look an awful lot on the cliche side of things. There is potential, but if you go to see it when it comes out on Friday, be prepared for a bit of the “feel good” type film.
“InAPPropriate Comedy”- Another comedy, this one stars Adrien Brody (Academy Award winner), Rob Schneider, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, and Ari Shaffir. We’ve seen some of these actors in numerous comedies over the years, and seeing Lohan in this movie reminds us that she is still here to grace us with her presence. This is simply one of those “no holds” comedies with very distinctive, strong characters that fit into the plot. This movie will not be up for an Oscar, but this is part of the reason it would be fun to see. If you are in the mood for a movie that is crudely funny, simply because it has no boundaries, then you would probably enjoy this film. Anyone who has seen movies like “Borat” or “Bruno” will appreciate this sense of humor. This also comes out on Friday.
“The Host” – Coming from the writer of the “Twilight” series, Stephenie Meyer, is this new epic love story thriller starring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, and Frances Fisher. This movie is all about a new “unseen” enemy that comes to earth and threatens humans erasing their minds to take control of their bodies. This revolves around the journey of a couple that are trying to navigate through this precarious world while trying to maintain their minds and protect the people they care about. This movie seems to be a toss-up between the “Twilight” stories with the addition of this more futuristic, “alien” aspect to it.
If any guys want a good date movie that isn’t quite as painful as “Twilight,” this would be a good bet. This movie comes out on March 29.
“Tyler Perry’s Temptation” – We all know Tyler Perry from his TV series “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” and his many other “Tyler Perry’s …” movies. This film is a mix of comedy, drama, and romance, which is all about the issue of infidelity, which is much more in depth than many of his other films. It stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Williams, Robbie Jones, Renée Taylor, Ella Joyce, and Brandy Norwood. This movie doesn’t really fit the mold of most dramas/comedies of Tyler Perry. It is more of a study on the nature of human desire. In addition to being a form of entertainment, this movie will also make you think about something deeper. This movie also gets released on the 29th.
