At The Movies (Next Week)

Kevin Noonan | Friday, September 14, 2012

Looking to go to the movies this weekend? Of course you’re not. It’s a dead zone weekend at the movies, the kind of eerie silence you might expect right before you realize you’re suddenly in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
Fear not though. Next week will be better. Look and see films opening next Friday.
“Dredd 3D”
Starring: Karl Urban
Directed by: Peter Travis
Studio: Lionsgate
Synopsis: A remake of Sylvester Stallone’s 1995 “Judge Dredd,” considered one of the worst films of the 90s, both financially and critically, this film, inspired by a comic book character, stars Karl Urban (Bones in “Star Trek”) as judge, jury and executioner. It looks more stripped down than the original, and promises to be a fun, if simple, action film.

“End of Watch”
Starring: Jake Gyllenhall, Michael Peña
Directed by: David Ayer
Studio: Open Road Films
Synopsis: From the writer of “Training Day” comes an intense, constant motion thriller featuring two LAPD officers who do their jobs a little too well and find themselves in the crosshairs of a drug cartel.

“Trouble With the Curve”
Starring: Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake
Directed by: Robert Lorenz
Studio: Warner Bros.
Synopsis: In a film he didn’t also direct for the first time since 1993, Clint Eastwood stars as an aging scout for the Atlanta Braves, whose daughter is determined to help him in spite of his protests.
