new films coming out on 9.3.10

This weekend we have a surprisingly good weekend of new movie releases regardless of the end of the crazy summer season of blockbusters. The four new big movies couldn’t be more different, and while I still have films from the last few weeks that I want to see (Scott Pilgrim, The Expendables), I also sorta want to see some of these. We’ll start with the film that is most likely to get an Oscar nomination…

The American
Directed by Anton Corbijn, this action thriller that stars George Clooney as an American assassin that is being hunted in Italy while on his last assignment.  It is a story that has been told many times, but I trust George Clooney. He usually has a great eye for characters and has been on a great streak with his acting (Michael Clayton, Up in the Air, Fantastic Mr. Fox). I’m not familar with Corbijn, and from the look of his IMDB he has more experience in directing concerts and music related projects. The flick co-stars Irina Björklund.

Machete
Robert Rodriguez’s spoof trailer turned movie is the one I’m most excited about this weekend! It is an over the top b-action/horror/crime/thriller that stars one of film’s biggest badasses, Danny Trejo, as Machete.  Machete is an ex-Federale who launches a brutal rampage of violence after being betrayed by an organization that hired him. The flick co-stars Robert DeNiro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson, Cheech Marin, and Lindsay Lohan.

Going the Distance
Next up is the long distance romantic comedy Going the Distance. The movie stars the on again/off again real life couple of Justin Long and Drew Barrymore, along with Christina Applegate, and Always Sunny‘s Charlie Day (who needs to be in more films!). The trailer was cute, and while it didn’t fully pull me it, it pulled in my wife who wants to check it out. A perfect dinner and a movie date movie. The flick is about two lovebirds that try to keep their romance alive regardless of living across the country from each other.

The Tillman Story
Last up is a documentary by Amir Bar-Lev that focuses on Pat Tillman, a pro football player who left a multimillion-dollar contract to join the military in a time of war and how the government manipulated his death into a tool for propaganda.

Will you be going to the movies this weekend?

Drag Me to Hell

Movie Jungle has posted 25 images for Sam Raimi’s new horror film, Drag Me to Hell.  In the film, Alison Lohman stars as Christine Brown, a loan officer who evicts the wrong creepy old woman from her home and is subjected to a gypsy curse that threatens to drag her to the pits of hell.  You can view the new images here or click out the film’s trailer here.

The flick hits theaters next Friday, May 29th, 2009.

It has been 17 years since Sam Raimi’s last Evil Dead flick, but now he is back to his horror roots with Drag Me to Hell. The film stars Alison Lohman as a loan officer who chooses to evict the wrong old woman from her house and pays for it after the woman puts a curse on her. Check out the trailer below.

Yeah, I’ll be seeing this on May 29th.

15 images from Kevin Smith’s Zack and Miri Make a Porno have been released on Yahoo. The film stars Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks, Traci Lords, Jason Mewes, and Craig Robinson, along with appearances by Justin Long and Brandon Routh. The movie opens on October 31st and has been rated R (after an appeal due to an initial NC-17 rating by the MPAA) for strong crude sexual content including dialogue, graphic nudity and pervasive language. Check out the new images from the film here, and some additional pics of the cast at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con can be found here.
