New Cinema Releases: 20th January 2012, HAYWIRE, THE SITTER, CORIOLANUS and J EDGAR

Friday, 20 January 2012

The new releases are rolling in thick this week as we finally get back into the swing of things at the cinema, for you this week is an action packed blockbuster, a comedy about a babysitter, a movie about warring Roman soldiers and finally an Oscar hopeful.  First up this weeks biggest release, or at least the most exciting of the bunch;

Haywire - Starring: Gina Carano, Michael Angarano, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas and Antonio Banderas

Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) is a freelance special ops agent who is sent by her handlers to complete jobs that governments around the world can not authorise and heads of state would rather not know about.  Mallory completes a job in Barcelona and is quickly sent to Dublin on another but she runs into problems and the operation is botched, now she faces a battle to evade an international manhunt whilst trying to get back to America to save her family and track down the people who betrayed her, check out the trailer and let me know what you think in the comments below.

The Sitter - Jonah Hill, Ari Graynor and Sam Rockwell

The latest of the R-Rated comedy's to come from Jonah Hill, what can I say? We should pretty much know what to expect with this one, lots of swearing and inappropriate behaviour as Jonah is tricked into babysitting the kids next door, thinking it will be an easy task he quickly learns that he is woefully unprepared for the job that lies ahead.  I posted the red band trailer for The Sitter a good while ago now so be sure to follow the link and go check it out.

Coriolanus - Gerard Butler, Ralph Finnes and Lubna Azabal

I'm not so sure I want to see this and to be honest I can't seem to make much sense of who is who.  From what I gather Coriolanus (Finnes) is the leader of Rome, he is corrupt and hates the people who he leaves to starve.  Coriolanus is banished from Rome even hated by his own mother, whilst banished he teams up with Aufidius (Butler) and together they march on Rome intending to destroy the city, Coriolanus' mother makes an appeal for him to stop, causing a bitter rivalry between him and Aufidius which ends in a bloody conflict, check out the trailer and let me know what you think.

J Edgar - Leonardo Di Caprio, Armie Hammer, Josh Hamilton, Jeff Pierson and Naiomi Watts

I think J Edgar will probably be one of those that does better in America than it does here in the U.K, it will no doubt be a draw thanks to the inclusion of Di Caprio but that's pretty much as far as my interest would go.  First off he wasn't the President, ever. J Edgar Hoover was the director of the FBI and was considered one of the most powerful men in the world during his 50 year reign, the movie is his biography showing how the man was loved by the public but behind closed doors he housed secrets which would have ruined him should they ever have came out.  The movie is pretty much dripping Oscars, providing it can get past that new silent movie with the dog who Simon Cowell wants to sign as a talent.

Those are the big four releases of the week, as you have seen the post has changed a little again, like it? Then don't be shy, let me know especially if you found it useful.  Last movie to mention now (briefly) Madonna is following her ex-husband into the movie business making her directional debut with W/E, it's a romantic drama which should see a trickle of interest, not mine though, don't mind rom coms but I can't do romantic dramas.  I'll be back later today to let you know what I thought of new Fox series Alcatraz, catch ya then.
