In Theaters This Week (1/27/2017): Resident Evil 6, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

Dennis Quaid, A Dog's Purpose

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  January 27th has three challengers to the surprising success of Split, though none of them are garnering much praise with critics.

My Favorite Scene: Tropic Thunder (2008) “Sgt. Lincoln Osiris: I’m A Dude!!!”

Though it’s not the home run I wanted it to be, Tropic Thunder is easily one of the best comedies of the last decade.  The cast is astounding, and Ben Stiller (who directed and starred in the film) got everyone in the cast to mercilessly mock their own public personas either through thinly veiled self-parody (Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey, Nick Nolte), doing something so outrageously against the normal grain of their career (Tom Crusie’s unrecognizable bald, pot-bellied studio executive), or by handing Robert Downey Jr. the keys to the greatest comedic character of this century: Kirk Lazarus/Sgt. Lincoln Osiris. Continue reading My Favorite Scene: Tropic Thunder (2008) “Sgt. Lincoln Osiris: I’m A Dude!!!”

Trailer Time: Gold Trailer #1 (2016) *McConaughey Has Gold Fever*

*From Variety

“Gold” is directed by Stephen Gaghan and loosely based on the Bre-X mining scandal of the 1990s. McConaughey plays Wells as a down-and-out prospector who teams up with a geologist (Edgar Ramirez) to find a massive gold deposit in the jungles of Borneo.

“It’s amazing how a little gold dust can just change everything,” Wells says in the trailer. “For better or worse, the ride has begun.”

But keeping the gold is even harder as Wall Street,  the FBI and the Indonesian military take notice.

The film also stars Bryce Dallas Howard as Wells’ wife, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bruce Greenwood and Stacy Keach.

Gaghan, who directed “Syriana” and wrote “Traffic,” helmed from a screenplay by Patrick Massett & John Zinman, who are also producing along with McConaughey, Teddy Schwarzman for Black Bear Pictures and Michael Nozik for HWY61.

“Gold” opens on Christmas Day in the U.S.

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  June 24th brings two new wide releases.  Twenty years after the release of the original (pause to feel very, very old), the aliens are back to squish our landmarks in Independence Day: Resurgence.  Also opening is Matthew McConaughey in a little-known story from the Civil War: The Free State of Jones.  Can either take down the juggernaut that is Dory as it just keeps swimming through animated box office records?

Trailer Time: Kubo and the Two Strings Trailers #2 and #3 *Amazing Visuals and an Intriguing Story*

We got a dialogue-free trailer for Kubo and the Two Strings late last year, but I don’t know how I missed trailer 2, then I saw the third trailer before X-Men: Apocalypse and was completely blown away.  I love animation.  I love it when animators push the boundaries of their craft like The LEGO Movie did.  Kubo is visually stunning and features a great voice cast including Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, and Game of Thrones’ Art Parkinson as Kubo.  Check the trailers out, read the synopsis below, then circle August 19th.  It looks like we’ve got a late summer treat coming.
