This weekend Hugh Jackman stars in PRISONERS, an intense thriller about a father who takes the law into his own hands when his daughter disappears. It also stars Jake Gyllanhaal and doesn’t feature adamantium claws, men dressed as scary rabbits, boxing robots, neck bollocks or singing.
Also out is RUNNER RUNNER which has Justin Timberlake naively teaming up with Ben Affleck’s crooked gambler in a tense thriller. It doesn’t feature annoying dancing, beat boxing, batman outfits, beards or singing.
And in the comfort of your own home you can watch BYZANTIUM, a vampire movie starring Gemma Arterton and directed by Neil Jordan whose previous vampire film was the excellent INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE. It does feature vampires and blood but doesn’t feature Tom Cruise in a stupid blonde wig prancing around like a fanny.
Have a good weekend and I’ll see you on the beach!
