New Movies This Week At The Box Office, Fri Jan 18th

Mama movie poster This Friday, January 18th, the new movies that are out in theaters include stars such as Jessica Chastain, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mark Wahlberg, Meagan Good, and Common.

Here's a quick rundown on the titles:

Mama

It's directed by Jee-woon Kim (Doomsday Book, I Saw the Devil).

"The leader of a drug cartel busts out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexican border, where the only thing in his path is a sheriff and his inexperienced staff."

Something to consider: Over on IMDb, with just under 800 votes, the movie is rated at a 7.7/10!  I wasn't even considering this movie, but now I have to wonder.

Usually, I wait until more votes are in, but I'm surprised how high the user-score already is.

Broken City

This is the movie I was thinking about going to see this Friday.

Starring  Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, Catherine Zeta-Jones and somewhere in the mix, Kyle Chandler is also resident!

It's directed by Allen Hughes, who has also helmed The Book of Eli.

LUV

It only has a few votes, but the score on this movie is languishing under 5.

  1. I hope this movie was smartly made. Arnold is too old to rely on his presence anymore. I am glad to read the review which reflects movie’s correct way to use Arnold and made it entertaining. I can’t wait to see it now.
