Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy will attempt to have a monstrous first week, unless a certain President has his way.
“The Heat”, a buddy film starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy will ride the beat this week in hoping to take down last week’s champ “Monsters University” that pulled in $82 mil in its debut. Bullock and McCarthy star as alpha female cops who have to take down a drug lord without shooting each other first.
Speaking of shots fired, you’ll get a lot of that in White House Down. Nothing defines government gridlock like a missile going through the house of Congress, but that’s just what happens as Jamie Foxx stars as the President with only good luck and a beefy Channing Tatum standing between him and a terrorist field day. The film was directed by Roland Emmerich, so expect a lot of things to get shot at and blown up…loudly.
If you’d like things a bit quieter, you do have options…
I’m So Excited – Director Pedro Almodovar is back with a comedy about flight attendants singing and dancing when a flight suffers a mechanical malfunction. Starring Antonio de la Torre, Hugo Silva, and Miguel Angel Silvestre.
Laurence Anyways – A French film about an author who is engaged, right after he turns 35 tells his fiance that he wants a sex change. I don’t know how good it is, but it’s 3 hours. You were warned. Stars Natahalie Baye, Melvil Poupaud, and Suzanne Clement.
A Band Called Death – Before Punk existed, there was a band called Death. The film chronicles their struggle against social, racial, and creative forces to finally have it’s voices heard. Music historians or fans of punk should not miss this. Stars David Hackney, Dannis Hackney, and Bobby Hackney.
