Movie Trailer Friday

by Matt Z

This is one of those weekends where I really have no interest in any of the movies that are opening up, with a couple of exceptions.  The exceptions are I Declare War and Our Nixon, both limited release.

Closed Circuit is a suspense/thriller and stars Eric Bana:

Getaway stars Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez.  Gomez is trying to shed her child-star image and took a big step in doing so when she did Spring Breakers.  Not only does the movie look terrible, critics agree, but it's risky business hitching your wagon to Hawke.  He doesn't always make the best decisions when it comes to film choice.  Selena, focus more on the James Franco types.

The last wide release film is One Direction: This Is Us.  Kids and tweens are going to love it and maybe some of you lonely moms out there will as well.  I won't be seeing it.  That's a promise.

And here are some of the limited releases opening this weekend:

Afternoon Delight 

I Declare War 

Instructions Not Included 

The Lifeguard 

Our Nixon
