There are 5 new cinema releases out this week. Some very typical and 'we've seen them all before' films, and a couple which I can imagine will get overlooked. It is good to see however that one of them is packed with legendary British stars. Does that make it worth a watch? Take a look at the films and see what you will view this weekend.
1. Ryan Reynolds is left in charge of Denzel Washington's rogue CIA Agent in SAFE HOUSE. When the safe house is attacked Reynolds must stick to protocol and protect Washington at all costs. Expect loud explosions, car chases and a charming villain in Washington. Also starring: Robert Patrick & Vera Farmiga. Got to be fun, doesn't it?
2. A typical chick flick attempting action in ONE FOR THE MONEY. Katherine Heigl, of Knocked Up, becomes employed at a bail-bond business, where her first assignment puts her on a man from a romantic past. Have we seen all this before with Jennifer Aniston? Also starring: Jason O'Mara, Daniel Sunjata & John Leguizamo. Will this be one for the money? Ooops.
3. A crime drama next starring Woody Harrelson as a cop in 1999, who works to take care of his family, and struggles for his own survival. In RAMPART Harrelson is a corrupt cop from the past struggling to fit in with a new generation of coppers. Also starring: Ben Foster, Sigourney Weaver & Jon Bernthal. Fancy a good crime drama?
4. THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is the film starring several members of the older generation of British talent. The film sees Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Tom Wilkinson, plus many others, taking an opportunity in India at an exotic retirement home, only to get there and see that it isn't quite what the brochure had advertised. Some great acting talent to cheer you up?
5. Finally we have RED DOG, based on a true story of the red dog who united a local community whilst roaming the Australian outback in search for it's master. Starring:Josh Lucas, Rachael Taylor, Keisha Castle-Hughes & Noah Taylor. Follow a journey of a loved animal?
So there you have it a few films out this week. Any there that suit your fancy? Safe House is top of the Box Office in the U.S at the moment, could that make it the one to view this week?
