Opening This Weekend: 27th February

February isn’t often regarded as the season of cinematic brilliance, but this year doesn’t look so bad. While there are a few long shots, Cronenberg’s Maps in Our Stars and the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film offset the dreary stuff. So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, 
don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

Maps to the Stars

maps-to-the-stars-julianne-mooreStars: Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, John Cuack

Director: David Cronenberg

Synopsis: Cronenberg offers a self-critical glimpse into the world of a Hollywood family as the matriarch aims to make her comeback, and a young burned actress collides with their path.

Two Cents: The King of Horror is back, and he packs a punch.

The Lazarus Effect

Lazarus-BigStars: Evan Peters, Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Donald Glover

Director: David Gelb

Synopsis: A group of scientists have ambitiously engineered a serum that brings people back from the dead, and when one of the lead scientists in the team (Olivia Wilde) dies in an accident, it seems only natural they use the serum on her. It is successful, but she soon starts to show terrifying abilities that consume her.

Two Cents: This may just be a big budget B-horror flick, but it could, could, be really good.


FocusStars: Will Smith, Margot Robbie

Director: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa

Synopsis: A aged con-man takes under his wing a beautiful and promising young protegeé for the biggest score of their lives – one he cannot complete without her professional and personal input.  Things get complicated, as they always do, when they fall in love.

Two Cents: Who is even going to watch this?
