This weekend I am very excited. I’m a huge fan of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ so I’m positively giddy right now because the third film from the team behind those two films is finally released. THE WORLD’S END is the new film from Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright and it tells the tale of five old friends returning to their hometown to finish a pub-crawl they started years ago. Unfortunately, their hometown appears to have been taken over by robots hellbent on destroying everyone. It’s going to be a must see.
Also out is EASY MONEY, a Swedish thriller starring Joel Kinnaman (star of tv’s THE KILLING and also playing the new ROBOCOP no less) as a guy who sells cocaine to fund his playboy lifestyle and gets stuck double-dealing gangs in the criminal underworld. There will be subtitles…
And in a home viewing stylee with have Richard Gere in ARBITAGE. Here Gere plays a hedge fund manager who breaks the law to get the best prices. Will he get found out? You betcha.
Oh, and IDENTITY THIEF with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy is out as well… A so-so comedy. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Enjoy your weekend… Lets face it, the weathers been beautiful, the likelihood you will want to sit in a cinema or stay at home in this is fairly remote… I’ll see you in the pub garden.
