Mario’s Weekend Movie Roundup [VIDEO]
Going to be an interesting weekend at the box office. The latest trend today seems to take a classic fairy tale like Hansel & Gretel and give it a modern twist, also one of the biggest casts of Hollywood stars we’ve ever heard of gets together for ‘Movie 43′ and action star Jason Statham does what he does best in ‘Parker.’ Fantasy-action, comedy you’ll find it all at the movies in Texarkana this weekend.
‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’
Fifteen years after Hansel and Gretel left a trail of breadcrumbs through the woods to find their way back home but then were kidnapped and almost eaten by a witch, they’re still hunting witches—now with crossbows and stuff. Here’s that story.
Directed by Tommy Wirkola
Starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare
Multiple directors direct an enormous cast in this un-summarizable series of short comedic films that is rated R because of “strong pervasive crude and sexual content including dialogue, graphic nudity, language, some violence and drug use.” That should give you an idea of what to expect.
Directed by Peter Farrelly, Brett Ratner, Rusty Cundieff, James Gunn, Steve Carr
Starring Everyone (see trailer below)
Jason Statham plays a tough, solitary man of few words out for revenge, and along the way he meets a beautiful lady. In other words, it sounds exactly like every other Jason Statham movie—which, by the way, isn’t a criticism. If you’re one of the many people into that sort of thing, go see this.
Directed by Taylor Hackford
Starring Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Chiklis, Nick Nolte
