What movie will you see?
Disneynature: Born in China
Who doesn’t love Disneynature docs? Oh you do?!?!?!? Then GTFO. Anyway, Born in China follows a panda bear, her cub, a golden monkey, a snow leopard, and her cubs. Not much else to say. John Krasinski narrates this nature doc, while Chuan Lu writes and directs. Lu has written and directed several Chinese films, however, this is his first documentary. Go see Born in China this weekend.
Boston. 1978. Two gangs set out to have a meeting in a warehouse, however, it soon turns into a shootout. Sounds like Bostonpalooza to me. Anyway, starring in this action thriller are Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Brie Larson, and more. The writer and director of this flick is Ben Wheatley. Wheatley wrote and directed Kill List as well as directed High-Rise and a segment for The ABC’s of Death. I believe someone called into the Binge with a review of this flick a couple weeks ago. Check out Free Fire this weekend.
Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac. Need I say more? Fine. The Promise tells the story of a love triangle during the last days of the Ottoman Empire. Ugh. Also starring in this historical drama are Shohreh Aghdashloo (X-Men: The Last Stand), Angela Sarafyan (Westworld), James “that’ll do pig” Cromwell, Jean Reno, Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield), and more. Writing and directing this film is Terry George. George has written In the Name of the Father, Hart’s War, and has directed Hotel Rwanda, and Reservation Road. Go check out this movie this weekend, however I can’t Promise that it’s good.
An ex-wife decides to make life a living hell for her ex-husbands new wife. Geez, take it easy lady. Starring in this dramatic thriller are Rosario Dawson, Katherine Heigl, Geoff Stults (Wedding Crashers), and more. Denise Di Novi is the director of Unforgettable. Di Novi has only directed one episode of Bones, however, has been a producer in the film industry since the 80’s. Is this movie gonna be forgettable? Find out this weekend.
