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.
You’ve got a choice between a sci-fi/horror flick and a kids’ animated film in new wide release this weekend. Previews and trailers for Prometheus and Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted are after the jump.
Ridley Scott dips once more into the Alien inkwell to bring us a horror film set in the cold, dark recesses of space. Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender star in this film about an extraterrestrial science expedition gone horribly, horribly wrong. Rated R.
Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted
Back for their third feature, the Madagascar gang takes their shenanigans to Europe, where they join a traveling circus in an attempt to stay incognito. Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Chris Rock all return, but will audiences do the same? Rated PG.
Are either of this week’s wide releases compelling enough to get you into a movie theater this weekend, Insiders?
