Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview, here is a look at what’s opening this weekend and don’t forget to check out the City of Films SUMMER MOVIE GUIDE so you can plan your summer movie experience. See you here Monday for a new City Strip.
If you want to see a great alien invasion movie, check out Attack the Block. The Watch may be someone’s best effort to Americanize that movie, but I don’t think it’s going to work. I’m pretty tired of the unscripted back and forth you can already tell will be in this movie thanks to Stiller, Vaughn, and Hill. Maybe I’m getting old, or maybe I like story.
Dance kids. Dance like you’ve never danced before! Then never make one of these stupid movies again.
Other: Like I said, The Dark Knight Rises is worth checking out, even for a second time. If you’re stuck at home, Breaking Bad is on Sunday and this season is just chilling so far.
Matthew McConaughe plays a killer, is that a first? If Kate Hudson isn’t around, that even better. You can watch the trailer for Killer Joe below, in the NC-17-rated film Emile Hirsch and his father Thomas Haden Church hire cop/hitman Matthew McConaughey to murder their mother in order to get her insurance policy.
Killer Joe was directed by Academy Award winner William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) and also stars Juno Temple and Gina Gershon.
