This week, the new movies opening on Friday, May 11th, 2012, include cast such as Johnny Depp, Chloë Grace Moretz, & Christian Slater in an obscure film titled El Gringo.
It’s a daring week to open, considering that Joss Whedon’s box office smash hit, The Avengers just opened domestically last weekend and will probably keep crushing the puny box office, but Johnny Depp has his own draw of fans. We’ll see how it goes.
This is where I normally do a box office report but why? The Avengers is making oodles of cash and busting records left and right. There… a report of sorts!
New Movies This Friday
This week, the new mainstream fare opening includes
• Dark Shadows
Dark Shadows stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Chloë Grace Moretz and more. It’s directed by Tim Burton.
“An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.”
It’s a bit of a remake of a very old supernatural soap opera.
Hick stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Blake Lively, Eddie Redmayne, Alec Baldwin and others in a story about “A Nebraska teen gets more than she bargained for when she sets out for the bright lights of Las Vegas.”
It’s directed by Derick Martini.
Next week we get Battleship, The Dictator, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, and more.
Next month is when you’ll have to start picking and choosing if you’re on a budget. We have some choice movies coming:
• Snow White and the Huntsman
• G.I. Joe: Retaliation
• Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
• Piranha 3DD
