in New Movies This Friday

On Friday we get three new movies arriving in a theater near you. Two are opening everywhere and one is in limited release.

Opening Nationwide on Friday, June 20th:

Movie: Get Smart (PG-13) (Read Review)
Starring: Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson, Alan Arkin & Terence Stamp
Genre: Action Comedy
Synopsis: The identities of Control agents have been compromised, so they need someone who wasn’t on the list. The Chief decides to promote his always eager-analyst that has always wanted to work in the field with superstar Agent 23. But, instead he has to work with the only other agent that hasn’t been compromised, Agent 99. As they get closer to figuring out what has happened, it is up to Maxwell Smart to save the day and stop KAOS.
First Thoughts: This just looks really good and Steve Carell looks like the perfect choice to play Maxwell Smart. This is the movie I will be seeing on Friday.

Movie: The Love Guru (PG-13)
Starring: Mike Myers, Jessica Alba, Justin Timberlake, Romany Malco, Verne Troyer & Ben Kingsley
Genre: Comedy
Synopsis: A man born in America and raised in India has returned to find his fortune as a self-help guru. He gets hired to put a brokenhearted hockey players marriage together again, so that he will be able to help his team in their pursuit of the Stanley Cup.
First Thoughts: I like Mike Myers, but this looks incredibly stupid. I came across this story and video over at FirstShowing.net earlier today, which clearly and cleverly points out why it looks that way.

Movie in Limited Release:

  • Brick Lane – Drama about a Bangladeshi teenager forced into an arranged marriage to an older man in London.

For New Movie Friday there are two new movies to choose from this week. They are Get Smart and The Love Guru. What new movie looks good to you this week?
