Horrible Bosses – For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently. There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.

Set in present-day San Francisco, Will (Franco) has long been working on a cure that is being tested on apes when his test subject named Caesar (Serkis) starts exhibiting intelligence equal to humans. Caesar starts to evolve rapidly, and the scientist takes him home to live with him and protects Caesar from cruel scientists.

FIRST LOOK: Fright Night Gets Updated With Colin Farrell

The classic horror film Fright Night, from 1985 that took audience by storm about a vampire who moves into a neighborhood tormenting a young curious teen and his friends.

The witty, fresh, and scary film about a mysterious man who Jerry Dandrige, who moves into the neighborhood and torments a curious teen named Charlie Brewster played by Anton Yelchin. The remake stars  Colin Farrell as Jerry, who gives Chris Sarandon’s original character anger, intensity and  pure edgy fear. After watching the trailer  Colin is Jerry and this is a perfect fit for Farrell.

  • Release Date: August 19th, 2011 (wide)
  • Director: Craig Gillespie
  • Cast: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, David Tennant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
  • Studio: 2DreamWorks Studios
  • Genre: Comedy, Suspense/Horror and Remake
  • MPAA Rating: Not Yet Rated
  • Year: 2011

Fright Night – Teenager Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) guesses that his new neighbor Jerry Dandrige ( Colin Farrell) is a vampire responsible for a string of recent deaths. When no one he knows believes him, he enlists Peter Vincent (David Tennant), the opportunistic host of his favorite TV show, to help him take down Jerry and his guardian.  Charlie starts to have some serious suspicions that this Jerry guy is a vampire. As with most suspicions, Charlie is proven right after observing strange activity in his neighborhood. With the likes of Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick-Ass) as Charlie’s best friend, we are confident that the movie will tickle our tummies.

This time around his mother’s character Jane Brewster, played by Toni Collette is a little more developed and his girlfriend Amy Peterson [Imogen Poots] a little more spicy. The movie gets a full revamp intensifying the scare factor, but keeping with the comedy factor.

I have to say Fright Night is one of my all time favorite vampire films. I am really looking forward to the remake and if it goes to part two again, I hope they take it to the limit. The sequel had so much potential, but floundered to be original or scary. It ended up predictable and cliché’. With Farrell leading up the first installment there is hopes for a matching second that will scare audiences once again.

X-Men: First Class – Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
