OUT THIS WEEK (in Theaters)

Weekend of: October 7th–9th, 2011

I just felt like the Out This Week (In Theaters) posting needed something, like it’s own icon or something; so I tossed this one together. Let me know what you think!

This week there are two wide releases, Real Steel with Hugh Jackman and The Ides of March with George Clooney and Ryan Gosling. There are a bunch of limited releases, namely The Human Centapide 2: [Full Sequence], but I won’t be covering that one. If you missed the trailer go to last week’s New Trailers Out This Week.

Here we go!

 


 

Real Steel

Starring:

Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly

Produced by:

Stephen Speilberg and Robert Zemeckis

Directed by:

Shawn Levy

Real Steel reminds me of a movie that would have come out in like the summer 1997-1999 and I would have been all over it. Now, it just seems silly. Perhaps the movie is mirroring how the boxing world isn’t as strong as it was ten-fifteen years ago and how Mixed-Martial Arts (MMA) is taking over its spot. But boxing robots aren’t guys in an MMA octagon or ring. It’ll probably be a good movie, I was surprised to see that Stephen Speilberg and Robert Zemeckis produced this because I don’t remember either of their names being on any of the promotional material.

Real Steel is about a washed up boxer, played by Jackman, who has a chance to redeem himself and train a robot to box in the bot boxing championship. I’ll wait until this one comes out on Netflix (or will it be Qwikster by then?). Evangeline Lilly, from Lost, co-stars with Jackman. This looks to be a good move for her, she kind of disappeared after Lost went off the air and she was missed. Lilly will be seen in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies.

The Ides of March

Starring:

Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, and Evan Rachel Wood

Produced by:

George Clooney, Grant Heslov, and Brian Oliver

Directed by:

George Clooney

The Ides of March is a movie starring and directed by George Clooney. Yet, another surprise for me this week. I saw this as just another political movie, but with Clooney directing it becomes something more. I would love to see this movie, it has an awesome poster, which you can view up above and I think it will definately be at the top of my Netflix (or Qwikster) queue when it comes out on DVD.
