Movie Friday [12/7]: What to See This Weekend



A stuffy oscar bait-y movie may not be up your ally but “Hyde Park on Hudson” has one of our favorite actors in the lead, Bill Murray. And you know he always brings something special to all his parts.  And he loves to have a good time and crash parties – nuff said, the man is just awesome. Go see it. But what about the movie you say? It’s about a pivotal relationship between the United States and Britian played out over a weekend spent between FDR (played by Murray) and King George VI. It also shows the special relationship the president had with his cousin. THR calls his performance “Keenly observed.” You hear that? Keenly. 

The rest of the pack:

If you’re more into romantic comedies, you might want to check out “Playing for Keeps“, which stars hunky (yeah, that’s right ‘hunky’) Gerard Butler, as an ex-soccer star who who wants to build a relationship with his son and ex-wife played by sexy Jessica Timberlake Biel.  So basically there’s enough eye candy for everyone. Can someone say date movie? (seriously, probably not, the reviews have not been kind. But you should judge for yourself. You’re an individual damn it.)




Screw it. Sometimes you just want a healthy dose of violence. “Deadfall” might be just what you need to fill the hole. The western-ish flick stars Eric Bana as violent bank robber on a quest to make it Canada with his sister (Olivia Wilde),who he might have lusty feeling for.  

Warning: art house movie ahead. Do you like Mad Men? Well, this isn’t like that. But, it does star a cast member from Mad Men. In “In Our Nature“, Silver fox, John Slattery plays a father who, due to a scheduling mistake, has to share a vacation home with a son he doesn’t get along with and their girlfriends, respectively. Ugh, sounds interesting. Maybe. If you’re into that kind of stuff.

Movie News: OGs Return for X-Men’s Next Installment

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will be returning to Marvel Studios to reprise their roles as Professor-X and Magneto in the upcoming chapter of the X-Men Origins series, Days of Future Past

This is pretty big considering James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender will also be playing their roles as the younger versions, as they did in the prequel, First Class. The rest of the main cast will also make their returns as well, possibly along with some new and familiar faces (but regardless, they’ll be new to this current X-Men series since they weren’t in the last movie, obviously) as Days will be depicting the events of the comic book storyline. Shit’s gonna be cray cray (2 crays for emphasis).

Movie Trailer: Warm Bodies

Nowadays it seems setting stories of any kind, whether it’s movies, TV shows, books, porn, etc., in post-apocalyptic worlds is the current wave right now. Yes, I said wave. Moving on, Warm Bodies, stars Nicholas Hoult (X-Men Origins: First Class), Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four), Rob Corddry (Children’s Hospital), and Dave Franco (21 Jump Street), a pretty nice cast, in a movie about a zombie (Hoult) who has a best friend (Corddry) and falls in love with a girl (Palmer), which is weird considering zombies are supposed to be dead and unfeeling, literally heartless. Check out the trailer:

Watch| Trailer for Adorable Chess Doc – "Brooklyn Castle"

The new documentary, “Brooklyn Castle,” is about a group of Brooklyn teens from I.S. 318 who, perhaps improbably, hold the winningest record for a junior high school chess team. These are the type of kids that get called “at risk” because of the circumstances they’re growing up around (more than 60 percent of them live below the poverty line). When budget cuts threaten their team, these kids step up to the plate.

If you watch the trailer and you’re heart doesn’t get all melty and gooey, check your pulse, you’re probably dead.

"Smoke dog, baby, remember that sh*t": Ice Cube confirms Last Friday

Rapper, actor, producer, and writer straight outta Compton, Ice Cube, has confirmed the making of the fourth and final movie of the “Friday” franchise. Last Friday is set to release during the holidays next year and he’s already “deep into [the script].” Chris Tucker is also on board to reprise his role as Smokey, the reefer-inhaling bandit who entered the hearts of many through the previous films, although it took much convincing from Ice as Tucker has now found God and, well, let’s just say Smokey ain’t the holiest guy around.
Hopefully this won’t affect how Chris approaches his role in any way, but of course, nothing is guaranteed until he steps foot on set. Cube is also working on an N.W.A. biopic and a new album. Acting, directing, writing, and music on top of it all, 2013 looks to be a productive year for O’Shea Jackson.
