Movies this Weekend!

ShowHype: hype it up!
Again, we have quite a plethora of movies opening this weekend. I've always wanted to use that word in writing. Plethora. Anyway, hope I haven't kept you waiting too long for a movie post here.. don't forget to vote on my poll! (Scroll down two posts to see it) Also, I was mistaken on the opening of Eastern Promises. It opened in limited release last weekend, and is going wide this weekend. Please check out my Movies this Weekend post last week for a synopsis and how I think it will do. Sorry if I confused anyone! I'll try to be as accurate as possible this time around.

Sydney White - Starring Amanda Bynes. A college comedy about acceptance, and adjusting to the cutthroat atmosphere of sororities. Sydney White (Bynes) has come to Southern Atlantic University, ready to pledge for her mother's esteemed sorority. While making it through the pledging class, White finds that the sorority life is not what she expected it to be, and ends up kicked out. Finding her way to a condemned house on Greek Row, she links up with a group of misfits, and organizes them to revolutionize "the system".

How I think it will do - I think this one will do fairly well. This is a very Amanda Bynes movie, and if you enjoyed She's the Man I'm pretty sure you will enjoy this one. It'll have some decent laughs, and some eye candy for both sexes. This'll be the one to bring the younger crowd to, and also the one people that are trying to sneak into movies will buy tickets for. The younger "date movie". :-)

Resident Evil: Extinction - The final part of the Resident Evil Trilogy. Starting off where the last one ended, Alice (Milla Jovovich) joins forces again with Carlos Olivera and other survivors in the Nevada desert as they try to eliminate the virus that is turning mankind into zombies. After being captured by the Umbrella Corporation, and experimented on, Alice now has superhuman strengths, senses and agility. She will need all this and more to destroy the virus and seek justice.

How I think it will do - Resident evil fans have been widely disappointed by the first parts of the trilogy. (Right DP?) Having seen the trailer for this one I'm actually looking forward to it. This one is going to try to satisfy all the people looking for a good horror/action flick. The curiosity factor as to how they're finishing out this series and the extensive marketing campaign should push it to decent success.

Good Luck Chuck - Starring Jessica Alba and Dane Cook. Charlie Logan (Dane Cook) is cursed. As a child, he refused to kiss a demented goth girl while playing spin the bottle, who in turn cursed him. This curse has carried on to his adult life, where even as a successful dentist, he can't find the girl of his dreams. Logan discovers that strangely enough, every woman he sleeps with finds true love.... with the next man they meet. Before long, word of his "power" spreads and women are lining up to be with him. But this is not what Charlie Logan wants. When he discovers Cam (Alba), a hopelessly klutzy penguin specialist, he knows he has to find a way to break the curse as they develop a true romance.

How I think it will do - I think this is going to be the date movie for the older crowd this week. With stunning Jessica Alba and funnyman Dane Cook anchoring this one, I think it has a decent shot at being #1 at the box office. It's definitely my pick for it. I don't know which date movie I'll be seeing though.... Being rated R, this one is sure to bring some laughs.

Well, those are our major releases for this week. Opening in limited release are The Assassination of Jesse James by that Coward Robert Ford, Into the Wild, Antonia, The Jane Austen Book Club, The Last Winter, and Trade. Lots of selection this week! Again, be sure to vote in the poll (two posts down)! I'll see you at the movies!

I think I'm going to take my daughter to see Sydney White. Actually I guess you could say she will be taking me since she got a gift card for her birthday.
