This guy comes home from work one day and his wife isn’t there. At first, he thinks nothing of it. But then a day goes by, then two days, three days, four days go by, and he hears nothing from his wife. On the fifth day, he comes home from work and he finds his wife at the kitchen table, eating some leftovers. He says to his wife, “Where the hell have you been, I’ve been worried sick about you!” She says, “These three guys kidnapped me and made me their sex slave for two whole weeks!” The husband says, “But you’ve only been gone for five days?” The wife says, “Yeah, I know, I just wanted to grab something to eat real quick.”
Lucy was released July 25 (despite the international released date of July 30 on the poster above), an actiony, sci-fi type movie from our old chum Luc Besson (The Professional, The Fifth Element) and starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, among others. The trailers have promised an action flick a step up from your average Summer action flick, and given the cast and director, who’s to disagree? So is Lucy mind-blowingly awesome, or mind-numbingly stupid?
The Purge: Anarchy is in theatres now, and expands on a lot of the ideas presented in the first film. The first film had some mixed reviews, but as Hollywood would have it, a sequel was made anyway. So how did it do? Is it a good sequel, or should it be hunted in the gardens?
We’ve seen one moody photo of someone who may or may not be Ben Affleck wearing the short-earted bat-suit from Batman vs Superman, but yesterday at San Diego Comic Con, DC showed off the entire cape and cowl apparatus, but not the suit itself. Or maybe there is no actual suit, just Affleck pecs.
