MoviefiedNYC’s Opening this Weekend – January 10

Loves Her Gun – Trieste Kelly

There are definitely some interesting films (Tim’s Vermeer, Like Father, Like Son, That Awkward Moment) opening this month, but it just doesn’t compare to the the last quarter of 2013 where we had an  abundance of gems to pick from. I don’t know about you, but I’m still trying to catch up with all the big films (August Osage County, Her, Nebraska, etc) as awards season is already under way, not to mention all the documentaries I’m dying to see (Cutie and the Boxer, Dirty Wars, etc). 
So, whether you choose to check out that indie you heard so much about or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

Hercules: The Legend Begins

Hercules: The Legend Begins – Kellan Lutz 

The Legend of Hercules is directed by Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2), who also wrote the film with Daniel Giat (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee). In 1200 B.C. Greece, a queen gives birth to a son, fathered by Zeus, who is destined to overthrow the tyrannical rule of the king. But this prince, Hercules (Kellan Lutz), knows nothing of his identity or his destiny. He only wants the love of Hebe, Princess of Crete, who has been promised to his brother. When he learns of his greater purpose, he must choose: flee with his true love or fulfill his destiny and become a true hero. Maybe both?



Raze directed by Josh C. Waller, released by IFC Films is the story of a young woman abducted by an elite, secret society and wakes to find herself in the company of fifty other women who are, just like her, forced to fight for their lives in an unimaginable hell…another day at the office.

The Truth About Emanuel

The Truth About Emanuel – Kaya Scodelario and Jessica Biel

Emanuel (Kaya Scodelario), a troubled girl, becomes preoccupied with her mysterious, new neighbor (Jessica Biel), who bears a striking resemblance to her deceased mother (of course). In offering to babysit her newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world, of which she becomes the gatekeeper.

The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box

The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box – Michael Sheen
Ancient mysteries. Powerful evil. And a fearless hero’s quest through a fantastical realm of steam-powered wonders and sinister magic…and Michael Sheen! I’m skeptiical due to it’s January release but I’m in!

Loves Her Gun – Trieste Kelly

In Swerve Pictures, Loves Her Gun, Allie (Trieste Kelly) leads an unfocused life with no job and a lame boyfriend. So it’s no surprise when she hops on the next bus (well more of an RV full of karate rockers) to Texas after being attacked on the streets of New York. Seeming to improve as she settles into the slower-pace of Austin, her fears continue to haunt her. She quickly falls into Texas gun culture as a means to feel safe. She walks the fine line between reasonable self-preservation and paranoid withdrawal.
