There are eleven new movies coming out Friday. Three are opening everywhere and another eight are in limited release.
Nationwide – New Movies Coming Out Friday, April 22nd:
Movie: African Cats (G)
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson
Genre: Nature Documentary
Synopsis: Jackson narrates this story of the real-life love, humor and determination of the kings of the savanna.
First Thoughts: Doesn’t really interest me, but looks like a spectacular viewing experience.
Movie: Tyler Perry’s Big Happy Family (PG-13)
Starring: Tyler Perry & Loretta Devine
Synopsis: Madea’s niece learns she has some health problems and all she wants is to have her entire family around her. Her adult children all have lives of their own and don’t pay much attention to her. So, it’s up to Madea to bring everyone together.
First Thoughts: Haven’t seen one of these Madea films yet, not likely to start with this one.
Movie: Water for Elephants (PG-13)
Starring: Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, Christoph Waltz, Paul Schneider, Jim Norton & Hal Holbrook
Genre: Romantic Drama
Synopsis: Based on Sara Gruen’s novel about an orphaned veterinary student that latches onto a traveling circus.
First Thoughts: Looks like a snoozer to me. Does have a great cast though, well except for Pattinson. Don’t really get why so many seem to like him, well except for his being in that overly hyped sparkly vampire franchise.

There are three new movies playing in my area this week. They are African Cats, Tyler Perry’s Big Happy Family, and Water for Elephants. What new movies coming out Friday will you be going to see? I’ve been sick over the last couple weeks and haven’t gotten out to the theater, so was really looking forward to this weekend until I saw what new movies are coming out. Looks like I’ll finally be going to see Hanna this Friday.
