Wherein we preview those movies invading the box office this weekend.
The big draw this weekend is sure to be X-Men: First Class, which we’ve covered a bit here already, so I won’t bore you with the details yet again. To change things up, here’s the international trailer this time. And yes, I’m seeing this one at midnight.
We’ve also got Beginners, starring young Obi-Wan Kenobi and old Captain von Trapp in a story about an old man who has terminal cancer and oh yeah – is gay, and has a young boytoy. Joined by Melanie Laurent, whom you might know from Inglourious Basterds, this has the potential to be a very good movie. (Opens in limited release.)
Also in limited release, we have Submarine, which revolves around a young Brit named Oliver who is trying to lose his virginity, among other things. (Opens in limited release.)
Also opening this week:
- Beautiful Boy, starring Michael Sheen and Maria Bello (LA/NYC only)
- Rejoice and Shout, a documentary covering gospel music (limited)
