PETEMSEE IT THIS WEEKEND – 3/23/17

On 23 March, 2017 by Pete Cetinich

This column will introduce you to the most popular movies that are coming out in theaters this weekend and why you should go see them.

What movie will you see this weekend?

CHIPS

Reasons to see this:

Why?!?  Anyway, CHIPS is based on the late 70’s early 80’s TV show about two highway patrol cops in LA.  Starring in this action comedy TV adaptation are Michael Pena, Dax (I can’t believe people hire this guy) Shepard, Adam Brody (Yoga Hosers.  Right Emo Kev?), Ryan Hansen (Party Down, can we replace Shepard with Hansen?), Vincent D’Onofrio, Kristen Bell, and more.  I just found out which director hired Dax Shepard…..yup, it’s Dax Shepard.  Shepard has directed Hit and Run, starring himself.  He is also writing and directing a Scooby-Doo movie.  I wonder if he’ll hire himself to play Shaggy.  If you’re a fan of Chips, then go see Chips.

Life

Reasons to see this:

A crew of astronauts study a sample collected from Mars that may determine life on Mars.  However, things are not what they seem.  Dun Dun Dun.  Starring in this sci-fi thriller are Rebecca Ferguson (M:I 6), Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, and more.  Directing this space flick is Daniel Espinosa, who has worked with Reynolds before in Safe House.  Espinosa has also directed Child 44.  Get a Life and go see Life this weekend.

Power Rangers

Reasons to see this:

Based on the early 90’sTV show, this film adaptation is about a group of teenagers that acquire special “powers” to defeat evil.  As far as the cast goes, the Rangers are pretty unknown, while Elizabeth Banks, Bryan Cranston, and Bill Hader land roles in this.  The director of this reboot/remake is Dean Israelite.  Israelite has directed 2015’s Project Almanac.  If you are a fan of this franchise, then hit the theater this weekend.

Wilson

Reasons to see this:

Wilson is a neurotic middle-aged man who reconnects with his wife and meets his teenage daughter for the first time.  Wilson is played by a volleyball.  Kidding.  Wilson is played by Woody Harrelson, while the rest of the cast includes Judy Greer, Laura Dern, Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm ), and more.  Craig Johnson directs this comedy.  Johnson wrote and directed The Skeleton Twins, which starred Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig.  Don’t let Wilson float away.  Go see him in theaters.
