Movie Releases: Friday June 4, 2010
These are the new movies arriving in theaters this Friday:
Get Him to the Greek
Jonah Hill and Russell Brand reunite with director Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) in Get Him to the Greek.
Aaron Green (Hill) has just landed his dream job in the recording industry and his first assignment is to travel to London and escort British rock god Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to “the” show that will reignite his career. Before departing, Aaron’s boss, Sergio Roma (Sean Combs) warn him to never let Aldous out of his sight and never underestimate Aldous’ capacity for causing mayhem. Immensely talented yet deeply tortured, Aldous hit the bottle hard after his popularity began to wane and his girl walked out on him. Aldous is locked in the midst of an existential crisis, and rues the thought of being accompanied across the pond by an insincere sycophant. Though it seems like sex is the only thing Aldous ever thinks about, his thoughts turn to romance when he discovers that gorgeous model/pop singer Jackie Q (Rose Byrne) will be in Los Angeles at the time of his concert, too. Jackie Q is the love of Aldous’ life, and he’ll do anything and everything to win her heart. With the concert fast approaching and Aaron’s fledgling career on the line, the race is on to get Aldous to the Greek, and ensure the big show goes off without a hitch.
Ashton Kutcher and Katharine Heigl team up in the action romance comedy, Killers.
Killers, starring Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher, and directed by Robert Luketic, is a hilarious, unpredictable action comedy about love, marriage and serious firepower.
Defying legal and ethical boundaries, two young rebellious scientists forge ahead with a dangerous experiment, which involves splicing together human and animal DNA to create a new organism. The creature, which they named Dren, rapdily transforms from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with her creators – only to have that bond turn deadly.
Our favourite canine comic strip star, Marmaduke makes his big screen debut in this hilarious family comedy.
Marmaduke, the world’s most lovable Great Dane, leaps from comic strip fame (appearing in 600 newspapers in over 20 countries) to big screen stardom. In this family comedy, the super-sized dog who never fit in, finally finds a place where it’s okay to stand out. Now living large in Orange County, California, Marmaduke is helping his family make the big transition from the Midwest to The O.C. But he’s also discovering that fitting in with his new four-legged friends isn’t always easy for a 200-pound teenage dog.
Lucky for Marmaduke, he doesn’t have to go it alone because he always has his “stepbro” and best pal, Carlos, a Russian Blue Cat, watching his back.
