Jake Gyllenhaal in Source Code

New Movie Friday: Hop! Insidious! Source Code!

An adorable bunny. Some evil spirits. A soldier who wakes up in someone else’s body. That’s what we’ve got in theaters this weekend. Let’s take a closer look…

Source Code PosterSource Code. Jake Gyllenhaal stars in this action thriller about a soldier who wakes up in another guy’s body and discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.

A serious glitch in the process occurs when he falls for a girl on the train, played by Michelle Monaghan. Yes, it’s ‘Strangers on a Train’ all over again. Well, sort of. Rated PG-13 for some violence, including disturbing images, and for language; directed by Duncan Jones; Summit Entertainment; 93 min.; official site; Facebook.

Hop. Russell Brand voices the part of the Easter Bunny … well, that is, the bunny who’s supposed to take over the job, but would rather go to Hollywood and be a drummer in a rock ‘n roll band. I can’t wait to see this movie! Rated PG for some mild rude humor; directed by Tim Hill; Universal Pictures; 95 minutes; official site. More clips and trailers here.

Insidious. Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne star in this thriller about a family looking to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further. This movie just makes me wish ‘Damages’ hadn’t been canceled. Rated PG-13 (really?!) for thematic material, violence, terror, frightening images and brief strong language; directed by James Wan; FilmDistrict; 102 min.; official site; Facebook; Twitter.

    Son took his kids to see Hop! and said he enjoyed watching them enjoy it. (Which I take it means it may not be one of those kids movies that automatically appeals to adults.) But I do love that cartoon Bunny.

    I can’t wait to read your review of Hop–that looks so cute. Insidious looks like Poltergeist to me–I still have nightmares about that one so it’s definitely a no from me.
