In theaters this weekend, be prepared to find something else to do, like feed the ducks at your local pond or the like.
If you haven’t seen a preview for the movie Vacancy, then you must be living in a very secretive cave, since the preview has been broadcasting just about everywhere.
This thriller that stars Luke Wilson & Kate Beckinsale is about a couple with car problems that check into a shoddy motel. Wilson & Beckinsale’s characters happen to discover hidden cameras watching them in their motel room & find themselves the victims of a snuff film.
Sounds more like an indie film gone large, doesn’t it? Can we say skip? Yep, I think we can.
Also hitting movie screens this weekend is the new Ryan Gosling film Fracture. Gosling stars as an assistant to the D.A. who is prosecuting a confessed killer, Anthony Hopkins, but things do not seem as simple as when he set out on the case.
Have to admit, this one kinda sounds interesting, right? A maybe, but only because of Sir Hopkins.
Another newbie to the screens is Hot Fuzz, a movie about a top London cop who is incidentally transferred to a rural town. Looks rather cute, a savior for this weekend’s releases if you ask me.
And lastly, In the Land of Women will see its movie debut. This film, which stars Adam Brody & Meg Ryan, focuses on a young man with a broken heart who moves in to care for his grandmother & finds his way into the lives of the family living across the street. This is going to need another skip, please.
All in all, not too hot of a weekend at the movie theaters. But at least we have Hot Fuzz & Fracture to keep us company, eh?
