New Movies This Week fr Brusimm

This week another Christopher Nolan movie his hitting theaters, and with his track record of great writing, I’m betting this will be another hit.

Disney Animation is going up against Nolan with an animated action flick. Any other movie going against Nolan would be insane, but this is an animated family film, setting it apart in a different genre. So it might be a safe bet as fans of the different genres flock to their films.

There’s a limited release of the Stephen Hawking biopic movie. When it gets its national release, this is going to either be a great love story or a flop that won’t grab anyone’s imagination. I hope it does well. It is a great story for many to hear about, and the disease it brings to the forefront.

Then there’s the other stuff.

Movies Opening This Week – November 7

Interstellar
PG-13; 169 min

A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Director: Christopher Nolan
Stars:    Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Mackenzie Foy

I’m seeing nothing but great reviews from those who have already seen this movie. And don’t forget, Nolan loves employing practical, old-school effects whenever possible. And that he’s pulled off the near impossible as rumors suggest he’s kept the entire third act of Interstellar out of all marketing material.  How refreshing. Compared to when Disney gave almost everything away with their marketing of Iron Man 3.
