News Update :

New UK Cinema: 25th November 2011, MONEYBALL, DREAM HOUSE and 50/50

Friday, 25 November 2011

Three new movie releases out this week for you, well there’s more of course but I haven’t time to mention them all and you probably wouldn't want to see most of them anyway.  There is a sport movie for you, a comedy movie and a new psychological thriller which I posted the trailer for quite some time ago now.

First off this week, it’s Moneyball the new movie starring Brad Pitt.  I’m quite interested in this one due not only to the sporting storyline but also how close it follows the story of my Football club Newcastle United, take a look at the plot and see if you can draw some comparisons.

Starring: Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman

Brad Pitt plays Billy Beane, general manager of the Oakland A’s baseball team who are stripped of all their best players and a wage cap is brought in, wanting to win a World Series Beane is forced to look for a new advantage and starts to use statistical data to pick his team, resulting in great success.

Like I said very similar to the story at Newcastle United, apart from the analytics maybe but the same wage cap there has brought a little success our way this season and the movie is based on the success the Oakland A’s enjoyed because of the implementation.  The only thing that put me off a little is the fact it’s about Baseball, I don’t know the first thing about the game.

Now to Dream House the movie which I posted the trailer for quite a while ago now, this would probably go down as my pick of the week, especially if you want something to think about.

Starring: Daniel Craig, Rachael Weisz and Naomi Watts

Craig plays Will Atenton a man who leaves New York and his city job behind to start a new life with his wife Libby (Weisz) and their children in a small quaint New England town.  Will soon discovers that the house they have moved into was once a grisly crime scene and the house is full of memories, deciding to investigate further Will starts to piece together a disturbing puzzle.

I really like the look of this and think out of the three mentioned this week it’s the one I’m most likely to see not just for the interesting premise but the fact I’m also a Daniel Craig fan helps no doubt.

Last one to mention this week is the new Seth Rogan vehicle 50/50, as you would expect is a comedy but not like you’d quite imagine.

Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogan and Anna Kendrick

Adam (Gordon-Levitt) is a 27 year old radio program writer who is diagnosed with a rare form of Cancer, with the help of his best friend Kyle (Rogan), his mother and therapist Adam learns what the most important things in life are.

The movie is based on a true story and I caught a TV review on it the other night saying that although the subject matter is very serious it is a very funny movie.
