DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
Taking place 10 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, this new installment in the series sees Caesar leading a growing population of genetically evolved apes in the fight against humans. I think we all know how that fight pans out in the long run, but we’ll still watch anyway.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Judy Greer, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Terry Notary, Lucky Johnson, and Karin Konoval. Written by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Mark Bomback. Directed by Matt Reeves. In theaters July 11.
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller finally bring us the follow-up to 2005’s Sin City. Based primarily on the second book in Frank Miller’s Sin City graphic novel series, A Dame To Kill For features a ridiculously large and talented ensemble cast, and that stylized black and white look that we all loved about the first film. The acting should be nothing but excellent, and the action seems to be exactly what we would expect from Rodriguez and Miller.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For stars Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Josh Brolin, Jamie Chung, Jude Ciccolella, Marton Csokas, Rosario Dawson, Julia Garner, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Stacy Keach, Jamie King, Lady Gaga, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Crystal McCahill, Jeremy Piven, Mickey Rourke, Juno Temple, and Bruce Willis. Written by Frank Miller. Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. In theaters August 22.
DUMB AND DUMBER TO
It’s 20 years later, Harry and Lloyd still look and act the exact same, and we couldn’t be happier. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their roles from the 1994 cult classic Dumb and Dumber in this new adventure that takes the dumb duo on the search for Harry’s long lost daughter. Knowing the Farrelly brother’s solid track record, and how much the original means to them, my expectations for this one are set pretty high.
Dumb and Dumber To stars Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Kathleen Turner, Rob Riggle, and Laurie Holden. Written by Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly, Sean Anders, Mike Cerrone, John Morris, and Bennett Yellin. Directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly. In theaters November 14.
