Welcome to another edition of Inside Redbox’s Preview Review, where we recap the movies that will be coming out in theaters this weekend. The goal of this feature is to help you make your weekend movie-watching plans, as well as to note movies that you want to Redbox in a few months when they come out on DVD.
Lovers of an eclectic mix of weekend movies, rejoice! Previews and the official trailers for The Raven, Safe, The Five-Year Engagement and The Pirates! Band of Misfits are after the break.
John Cusack takes on the role of the macabre master in this dark tale of mystery and murder. A series of slayings based on the stories of Edgar Allen Poe lead a local detective to call upon the author to consult on the case. But is he a source or a suspect? Rated R.
Give some credit to Jason Statham: the guy knows his type. Statham stars in this action thriller about a down-on-his-luck former cop and cage fighter who gets a shot at redemption through protecting a little girl from some very bad people. Rated R.
The Five-Year Engagement
Emily Blunt and Jason Segel star as a couple who is always this… close to walking down the aisle. Producer Judd Apatow brings his pedigree to this romantic comedy. Rated R.
The Pirates! Band of Misfits
Hugh Grant voices the captain of a ragtag group of buccaneers in this animated family tale. Cannonballs with fly, swashes will be buckled, but will fun be had by the whole family? Rated PG.
Will any of this week’s movies get you out to the theater, Insiders? Let us know in the comments.
