CoF Weekend Preview: There Will Be Explosions

Friday, August 17th, 2012

YES. All kinds of YES!

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 the City Strip.

The Expendables 2RT (65%) – Trailer

If you liked the first one, you will probably like this one just as much or even more.  Any movie that can bring back Chuck Norris is alright in my books.  So many names here it’s pretty impressive, you can tell they had a great time making this one.  Imagine the parties after, the stories they shared, to be a drunk fly on that wall let me tell you.

The Odd Life of Timothy GreenRT (40%) – Trailer

A nice sweet concept that might be a good balance for the wife and daughters while the men in your house check out Sly’s Expendables 2.  Jennifer Garner, I don’t know still, we forgive her for Elektra?

ParaNormanRT (85%) – Trailer

Now this looks good, I live stop-motion and the story here (a boy who can see dead people) isn’t the most original, but here’ to hoping the execution of the whole thing works like magic.

SparkleRT (55%) – Trailer

I’m not one for melodramatic sing song movies; the voices here are great if that’s your thing though.

Limited: Compliance, Cosmopolis, Robot & Frank, Why Stop Now?
