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.
This weekend ushers three wide releases into theaters. Previews and trailers for The Bourne Legacy, Hope Springs and The Campaign are after the break.
The Bourne Legacey
There are two ways to look at the fourth film in the Bourne franchise: a blatant cash grab by the studio or an interesting offshoot of an established brand. Judging from the trailer and the “There was never just one” ad campaign for this film, it could be either one. Rated PG-13.
Two of this generation’s finest elder actors, Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep, star as a couple looking to add a little pizazz to their decades-old relationship. Can Jones and Streep pull off the delicate balance of funny and heartwarming that this film seems to be shooting for? Rated PG-13.
Will Ferrell stars as a four-time congressman who stays in office through a lack of opposition. Zach Galiflanakis starts as his upstart and tenuously qualified rival. Carefully timed to hit theaters during this election year, it will be interesting to see if this comedy can sufficiently mine the well of campaign jokes visited so regularly by SNL and others. Rated R.
What will it be this weekend, Insiders? Will any of the above new releases get you out to the movies?
