Afternoon stargazers. Sorry for such a late Trailer Trash, but I took the day off and have been running around trying to take care of my bidness. We don't have too many major releases today. In fact one flick opened on Wednesday, but that move still only landed it in third place on the daily box office records. Maybe the weekend will treat it more kindly. Let's have a look see at that Wednesday opener and the two other movies IMDb lists as our freshest choices.
Unstoppable The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, Goldeneye, Money Train, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory and the list continues. Now Unstoppable can add its name onto the list of train-centric action flicks. Whether it'll be a good train movie is another thing entirely. It is a chance for Chris Pine to prove he can play a non-Kirk role and joining Denzel & Tony Scott improves his odds. I'm more excited to see Jay Pharoah parody this on SNL tomorrow so all the more reason to see this ASAP.
Verdict: Moist With Antici...Pation!
Skyline With Eric Balfour and Donald Faison in the lead roles, everyone can at least be excited that anyone can, and probably will, die. Not to knock these fellas; on TV Faison is funny and Balfour plays a douche pretty well, but their film track record isn't too impressive. I'll go see it next weekend if it gets a huge response this weekend or if I can't get into a showing of the new Harry Potter.
Verdict: It's Friday, I Don't Want to be Alone.
Morning Glory (opened 11.10) That's what Harrison calls it when residuals of his little blue pills help jumpstart his morning if ya get my meaning. Ow! Actually, Calista can probably thank some sexy McAdams dream residuals. You did notice all that junk in her trunk, didn't you? Booty aside, this movie looks like such a stinking pile even the trailer attracts flies.
Verdict: Exercise the Right to Cinematic Celibacy.
That's all they released this week. Well, Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer did get a limited release as well. I didn't give two shits about his scandal then, so why would I pay to hear about it now?
By the way if you did miss it, here's a little bonus bounce for your weekend:
