New in Theatres · March 09, 2012

This weekend John Carter will take on the mighty Lorax! We don’t think he will defeat the grouchy little guy either. Though, John Carter of Earth will certainly destroy Eddie Murphy’s latest laugh-free “comedy” ‘A Thousand Words‘.

There are also a couple romantic comedies out there as well. And lucky for all of us, both ‘Friends with Kids’ and ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’ have just delightful casts!
So, have fun at the theatres this week!

JOHN CARTER
Lost in Our World. Found in Another.

Directing: Andrew Stanton
Writing: Andrew Stanton, Mark Andrews, Michael Chabon (screenplay), Edgar Rice Burroughs (story “A Princess of Mars”)
Starring: Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Samantha Morton

Price of Admission will get you: a movie adaptation of the sci-fi classic that looks like a mashup of all the worst parts from ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Avatar’.

Genre · Action / Adventure / Fantasy / Sci-Fi
Rating · PG-13

SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN

Directing: Lasse Hallström
Writing: Simon Beaufoy (screenplay), Paul Torday (novel)
Starring: Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Amr Waked, Kristin Scott Thomas

Price of Admission will get you: a cute little romantic comedy with a charming couple and a truly terrible title.

Rating · PG-13

FRIENDS WITH KIDS
Love. Happiness. Kids. Pick two.

Directing: Jennifer Westfeldt
Writing: Jennifer Westfeldt

A THOUSAND WORDS

“He only has 1000 words left to discover what matters most.

Directing: Brian Robbins
Writing: Steve Koren
Starring: Eddie Murphy, Cliff Curtis, Kerry Washington, Clark Duke

Price of Admission will get you: another Eddie Murphy Box Office bomb! This one has Murphy unable to speak and just mugging for the camera the whole time. It’s like ‘The Artist’, if that movie was an atrocious piece of garbage that no one wanted to see…
