in New Movies This Friday

There are 12 new movies coming out Friday. Four starts everywhere and another eight are in limited release.

Nationwide – New Movies Coming Out Friday, August 19th:

Movie: Conan the Barbarian (R)
Starring: Jason Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui & Ron Perlman
Genre: Fantasy Action Adventure
Synopsis: Conan sets out for revenge and his journey turns into a battle to save Hyboria from being overtaken by a supernatural evil.
First Thoughts: Will probably see it at some point, but not super excited about it. Definitely won’t be seeing it in 3-D.

Movie: Fright Night (R)
Starring: Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant, Imogen Poots & Toni Collette
Genre: Horror Comedy
Synopsis: A high school senior with everything going his way starts to notice strange things happening next door after a new neighbor moves. Nobody else seems to notice, but he starts to believe he is living next door to a vampire and sets out to prove it and then get rid of him.
First Thoughts: Never seen the original and this remake doesn’t interest me either. It’s also available in 3-D.

Movie: One Day (PG-13)
Starring: Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess, Romola Garai, Rafe Spall & Ken Stott
Genre: Romance Drama
Synopsis: For 20 years, an idealist and a wealthy playboy reunite on the 15th day of July.
First Thoughts: It has Anne Hathaway in it, so will probably see it at some point.

Movie: Spy Kids: All the Time in the World (PG-13)
Starring: Jessica Alba, Joel McHale, Jeremy Piven, Alexa Vega & Daryl Sabara
Genre: Family Adventure
Synopsis: A retired former spy now married with stepchildren is called back into duty when a villain threatens to takeover the world. Two former spy kids along with the stepchildren end up having to save the day.
First Thoughts: It’s a scratch-n-sniff movie. 4-D? I’m waiting for the first 5-D movie.
