New in theaters today is Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, along with Julia Roberts and Michael Cera. Not all in the same movie, of course, although that’s an interesting idea. Here’s the rundown:
Eat Pray Love . One of my favorite movie stars, Julia Roberts, plays memoirist Elizabeth Gilbert in the big-screen adaptation of her popular book by the same name. Venturing off on a journey of self-discovery, she eats pizza in Italy, meditates in India, and finds love in Bali. Rated PG-13 for brief strong language, some sexual references and male rear nudity; 133 min.
More after the jump…
The Expendables. Aging tough guys rock! Sylvester Stallone heads up a group of mercenaries out to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. The team also includes Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture and Dolph Lundgren. Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger have uncredited roles, and look for Mickey Rourke, too. Rated R for strong action and bloody violence throughout, and for some language; 103 min.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Playing his usual meek-guy-you-root-for, Michael Cera has to defeat seven of her evil exes before he can find true love with Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Based on a comic book. Rated PG-13 for stylized violence, sexual content, language and drug references. 112 min.
Planning on seeing any of the new movies in theaters this week? Do you go for the high-octane flicks or are you more into the introspective films?
