MRRIGHT_FinalPoster

Martha is not one to suffer through a breakup quietly – she cleans, she fusses, she cooks until none of her friends want to be anywhere near her.

Then she meets Frances – good looking, intelligent, similar somewhat warped sense of humor. Could he be any better? Maybe – he’s a hitman who, after an epiphany, has taken to killing the people who hire him.

Check out the trailer for Mr. Right after the break. Mr. Right stars Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell and will be in theaters and On Demand & Digital HD on April 8th.

Don Verdean – Slow Motion Deadpan Farce!

DONVERDEAN_still1

Don Verdean is a very peculiar movie – as are all of Jared Hess’ films (see: Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre, Gentleman Broncos). If you’re not on his wavelength, chances are you will hate Don Verdean; if you loved his previous work, you will love Don Verdean. It’s just that simple.

Don Verdean, the character, is a self-styled Biblical archaeologist who has built his career on finding artifacts that prove the Bible is true. After a lean period, he begins to message the truth – with all good intentions – and slowly finds his life spiraling out of control.

Don Verdean stars Sam Rockwell, Jemaine Clement, Will Forte, Amy Ryan and Leslie Bibb. It is directed by Jared Hess. Check out the trailer following the jump. Don Verdean will be in theaters and on demand on December 11th.

In Laggies, Keira Knightley stars as Megan, a 28-year old woman who has never grown up – despite a really good education.  When her high school sweetheart proposes, she freaks out at the thought of so specific a future and takes a week to try to think things through – or not.

Laggies, directed by Lynne Shelton, premieres in select theaters on October 24th and goes wide on November 7th. Follow the jump for further details – and a new slightly NSFW clip.

MOVIE REVIEW: Iron Man 2 Hot for Summertime

 

With the current trend of Hollywood movies,  sequels have to follow a unique blend of key ingredients in order to make it taste good. First, it has to keep the spirit of the first film alive and well. Next, it has to bigger, better, and stonger than the last. The sequel has to give us that sweet taste that we want to come back for more. Finally, the next movie has to give you more insight of the characters we grew to know from the first movie then wrap it all up with a new story that appeases a newbie.
