Movies Opening June 24th, 2011
This week there are four new movies opening, but only two of them will compete for the top of the box office this week. There’s a raunchy new comedy starring Cameron Diaz, an animated sequel starring talking cars, a drama about illegal immigrants, and a documentary about a current late night talk show host.
With the success that Bridesmaids has been having, it’ll be interesting to see if people are ready for yet another raunchy comedy with a female lead. In Bad Teacher Cameron Diaz plays a high school teacher who really doesn’t enjoy her job. After being dumped by her fiancée, Diaz sets her sights on a new substitute teacher played by Justin Timberlake. Jason Segel and Lucy Punch round out the cast. It’ll be interesting to see how well another R Rated comedy performs this movie season.
Cars 2 is the sequel to the 2006 hit Pixar movie about talking cars. This time around Lightening McQueen and Matar head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix. As Lightening prepares for the race, Matar gets mistaken as an international spy. Pixar has had quite the run at the box office with all of their movies opening at number 1, and their string will probably continue with this one. Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy return to their roles from the original flick.
In A Better Life a gardener in East LA is looking to give his son opportunities he never had. He struggles with keeping his son away from gangs and immigration, while showing him how much he cares. It’s a drama that displays the current issue many are facing in the southern U.S. today.
And finally, Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop follows the late night talk show host from just days after he was fired by NBC to the stand up comedy tour he went on last summer. O’Brien himself has a hard time watching this documentary, and it’s understandable after everything he went through. His fans won’t want to miss this one.
