New Movie Friday: The Bounty Hunter! Diary of a Wimpy Kid! Repo Men!

This is one of those weekends where I’d love nothing more than to camp out at the theater for two or three days. Not only are there a bunch of cool new movies, but several from last week I haven’t seen yet, like ‘Green Zone’ and ‘She’s Out of My League.’ Here’s what’s new in theaters today:

The Bounty Hunter – Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston star in this romantic comedy with a crime twist. Butler’s a bounty hunter assigned to track down his bail-jumping wife. The duo eventually find themselves running for their lives. Rated PG-13 for sexual content, including suggestive comments, language and some violence.

More after the jump…

Diary of a Wimpy Kid – Based on the best-selling novel by Jeff Kinney, this family comedy follows the adventures of wise-cracking kid Greg Heffley, who must somehow survive the scariest time of anyone’s life: middle school. Rated PG for some rude humor and language.

Repo Men – It’s a future world where human life is extended, thanks to expensive mechanical organs. But if you don’t pay your bill, the company will send out lethal repo men to collect. Stars Jude Law, Liev Schrieber and Forest Whitaker. Rated R for strong bloody violence, grisly images, language and some sexuality/nudity. 

And if you live near an IMAX or IMAX 3D theater, you should check out ‘Hubble 3D,’ a fascinating look into distant galaxies as seen through the Hubble Space Telescope. Leonardo DiCaprio narrates, and it’s rated G, so a fun way for your kids to see the universe.

    Feels like a movie weekend to me, too–but it’s too nice outside…No, instead…I read blogs all day.

    Should have gone to the movies (except for stopping in here, of course…)

      Hey Barb – Thanks for stopping by! I did end up seeing four movies this weekend, so it was pretty awesome. My one-line reviews:

      Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cute, but gross.
      Green Zone: Well-made war film, but Matt Damon didn’t seem believable for some reason.
      The Ghost Writer: Awesome political thriller, but hated the ending.
      The Bounty Hunter: Predictable rom-com. I wish Gerard Butler would go back to action flicks where he belongs.
