New Cinema Releases: 29th July 2011

Friday, 29 July 2011

First off today, hello to the blogs latest follower Matthew.  Welcome aboard and don't forget to leave your comments.  It's Friday again and you know what that means, no?  Well it's the weekly roundup of whats worth your time and whats not worth your time going to see at the cinema this weekend, as always with this post the movie featured last week Horrible Bosses is currently riding high at the box off, but it's struggling to get past the other movie I mentioned Cars 2.  Neither of them though are anywhere near that kid wizard yet.

First up this week Captain America: The First Avenger.  This movie has been on the horizon for quite some time now, not being American or into comic books I have to ask what is all the fuss about?  Isn’t this just another superhero movie for us all to enjoy?  All be it he is probably the most famous American superhero but will this movie actually be that good?  As it’s called the First Avenger, will there be a second movie?

Starring: Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell and Tommy Lee Jones

It’s 1942 and America is just heading off into World War II.  Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) has been deemed unfit for military service so he volunteers himself for a top secret research project “Rebirth”.  His weak body is suddenly turned into the maximum of human potential turning him into Captain America.  The head of the project Dr Erskine is assassinated by Johann Schmidt aka the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) Nazi Germany’s head of HYDRA research department.  Rogers completes a successful mission as Captain America which leads him into a war against Schmidt.

As always I’ve done some rooting around on the movie, of course I didn’t have to go to far to find a review.  The review drew comparisons from Iron Man and Spider-Man stating this is a worthy contender and even compared it to being as good as Raiders Of The Lost Ark, a movie that many people consider the best 80’s action movie and quite possibly the best one of all time.  If those comparisons are right then Captain America is a must see and we are in for a real treat.

Next up this week is Zookeeper, a movie where simply watching the trailer below should satisfy your interest, if you have any at all that is.  I suppose if you have children then you may well be heading to the theatre this weekend for your dose of talking animals, we haven’t seen that before right?

Starring: Kevin James, Rosario Dawson, Leslie Bibb and Donnie Wahlberg

As you can probably tell form the movie poster Griffin Keyes (Kevin James) is the Zookeeper.  Griffin is chasing the love of his life Stephanie (Leslie Bibb) who rejects him claiming that it’s because of his Zookeeper credentials.  A few years later Griffin is offered a job working at his brothers car dealership being assured that a change in career is the only way to woo Stephanie.  It’s then that the Zoo animals decide to break their code of silence on speaking to humans in order to hold onto their beloved head Zookeeper.

Sounds great right? Not.  I think Night At The Museum may be slightly edging ahead of this one in the talking animals stakes.  I don’t really know what Kevin James is up to with movie choices right now, all I can imagine is that he is really good friends with Adam Sandler who owns the production company that made this movie and maybe Kev owes the Sandman a favour.

On the plus side Sylvester Stallone plays the voice of the Lion, that's all I got really.  I can however point you in this direction.  Glen at 1Man. 365 Movies has reviewed it so go check it out.
