Movie Trailer Friday

by Matt Z

The two movies being released widely this weekend are not wowing the critics and they've sparked little to no interest on my end.  We start with Smurfs 2 :

And now 2 Guns.  Normally I would be excited to see a Denzel Washington movie but after watching the previews and reading early reviews, I'm not.  The comedic chemistry between Washington and Mark Wahlberg seems to be non-existent.  I know it's tough to gauge that solely from a trailer, but isn't that where the best bits normally get featured?  If this is the best, count me out:

Here's a look at some of the other movies being released this weekend:

The Spectacular Now 

Very excited for this one.  The screenplay was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber.   They also wrote 500 Days of Summer, a fantastic flick.

The Artist and The Model 

Cockneys vs. Zombies 

Drift 

Europa Report 

Our Children 

Rising From Ashes 

Smash and Grab: The Story of the Pink Panthers
