2 films are released on the mainstream circuit this weekend, and 1 of them has a lot to live up to. We have a martial arts fighting film, directed by a Welsh man, and the next Sacha Baron Cohen comedy, which needs to attempt to top some of Cohen's previous brilliant work. There is something this weekend for comedy fans and martial arts fans so take a look at them below and see what you would prefer.
1. Sacha Baron Cohen's new film is called THE DICTATOR in which he plays a dictator. His name is Prince Aladeen and he is determined that democracy does not enrol in the country he loves. In order to do this he travels to New York where he is attacked by corrupt cops who strip him of his beard and leave him roaming the street, until a lovely young girl decides to take him in. Also starring: Anna Faris, John C. Reilly & Ben Kingsley. Will this top Borat?
2. The second film has already been slated as one of the most violent movies of all time. It is directed by Welshman Gareth Evans and follows a young SWAT officer who is sent into a 30 storey building with his team in order to arrest a drug lord, however he has his own plans in mind and the SWAT team become stuck in the building with many violent people. The trailer alone is violent. Starring: Iko Uwais, Ananda George, Ray Sahetapy & Donny Alamsyah. Want to see some ass-kicking?
There are you 2 for the weekend, both of which are intriguing in every way. Check back in on Monday to see what we went to see and I'll let you know what I thought.
