“Think Like a Man Too” (2014)

The gang is back, and this time they make a trip to the wedding capital of the world, Las Vegas.  Boys will be boys and girls will be girls, so you know both sides are going to get into more trouble than they can handle. “Think Like a Man Too” Website

What to Watch For:  The whole cast from the first film has returned including Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and La La Anthony.

Word on the Street:  There are a number of cameos in the film, including a very famous boxer.

My Take:  The sequel  to the surprise hit of 2012 should do extremely well at the box office.

“Jersey Boys” (2014)

The film tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks who become the bestselling singing group, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. “Jersey Boys” Website

What to Watch For:  Clint Eastwood directs this film based on the Tony award winning Broadway musical.

Word on the Street:  The studio has taken a chance with casting four unknowns in the leads.

My Take:  It will be interesting to see how Mr. Eastwood does with his first musical.

“The Rover” (2014)

It’s been 10 years since the collapse of the global financial system.  Eric (Guy Pearce) is out to find the men who stole from him.  Traveling across the Australian outback, Eric meets Rey (Robert Pattinson), and they join forces to get Eric’s revenge. “The Rover” Website

What to Watch For: Many critics think that Guy Pearce could get an Academy Award nomination for his role in this film.

Word on the Street:  Robert Pattinson is also impressing critics and movie festival goers with his role.

My Take:  The trailer makes this film look like “Mad Max” in 2014.

 

If you can’t make it to the theatre this weekend, then stay at home and watch movies on CW69.
