Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman Part 2.  Do we really care what the story is here or do we want to see awesome action set pieces.  Ok….fine.  The Kingsman and another “secret service” come together to fight a common enemy.  Starring in the sequel are Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, and more.  Matthew Vaughn is back to direct and co-write the follow up.  Vaughn’s last 4 directorial films are Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, and Stardust.  He is also signed on to direct Kingsman 3.  Love the first one?  Then go see this.

Woodshock

I really can’t say what this movie is about.  IMDB synopsis says, “A woman falls deeper into paranoia after taking a deadly drug.”  However, I would check out the trailer for yourself if this interests you.  Starring in this weird dramatic thriller are Kirsten Dunst, Pilou Asbaek (Euron Greyjoy from Game of Thrones), Joe Cole (Green Room), and Jack Kilmer (The Nice Guys and son of Val Kilmer).  Kate and Laura Mulleavy are the writers and directors of Woodshock.  This is the Mulleavys first writing and directing project.  Hit the theaters this weekend and see Woodshock.
