The CoF Weekend Preview: Take Shelter Is Playing Somewhere

Friday, September 30th, 2011


Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview where we take a look at what’s going on this weekend in entertainment. Check back Monday for The City Strip. Don’t forget to check out the The City of Films Fall & Holiday Movie Guide to see what else is coming out over the next few weeks and months.

Take Shelter (limited)- IMDBRT (95%)

The most anticipated movie of the year for me is finally here, somewhere.  Of course it’s trailing well with critics and audiences, and of course it’s only in limited release making hard for me to find and love.  Michael Shannon is expected to win some neat awards for his role here; he’s as good as ever on Boardwalk Empire which is off to its second season.  He’s everywhere and should be.  Check out all of our coverage for Take Shelter here.

50/50IMDBRT (92%)

Cancer is funny again, and Seth Rogen is here to make sure of it.  Just look at his face in the poster, he’s so wacky.  I’m glad to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt in more movies, he’s a good kid.

Courageous – IMDB – RT (33%)

From the makers of Fireproof comes another Christian drama that people love for some reason, check this: Courageous was released to 1,161 theaters on September 30, 2011 and sold the most pre-sale tickets of the weekend on Fandango, beating out The Lion King 3D, Moneyball, Dolphin Tale and Drive.  It grossed over $2,000,000 in pre-sales.  Jesus.

Dream HouseIMDBRT (7%)

Spooky house and spooky revelations will most definitely lead to an unsatisfying ending, one of many on the DVD that will be out next month.

Take Shelter

Click to size.

Here’s a great poster for Jeff Nichols‘s psychological drama Take Shelter starring the always amazing Michael Shannon.  You can watch the trailer for the film below as well, and check out the teaser for Boardwalk Empire season we posted over here.  Shannon is in for a very big year and it continues with Man of Steel next year when he plays Zod [see].  He’s one of my favorites and I can’t wait to see Take Shelter, it looks like I won’t have to wait long as the film is being released in September.  Trailer:
