There are six movies opening this week. Three are opening everywhere and three more open on a limited basis.
Opening Nationwide on Friday, May 14th:
Movie: Just Wright (PG)
Starring: Common, Queen Latifah, Paula Patton, Phylicia Rashad & Pam Grier
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Synopsis: A physical therapist gets a great job working with an NBA All-Star, but when she starts to fall for him it makes things tough. Especially, since he seems to be into her best friend.
First Thoughts: Interesting place to put a romantic comedy. But, other than that, it sounds like every other romantic comedy that has come before it.
Movie: Letters to Juliet (PG)
Starring: Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave, Chris Egan, Gael & García Bernal
Synopsis: A young woman from America joins a group that replies to letters left to the famous Juliet of Romeo and Juliet. She answers one that she finds that was left in 1957 and it inspires the woman to head for Italy to find her long lost love, which begins a string of events that may just bring love into both their lives.
First Thoughts: Chick flick.
Movie: Robin Hood (PG-13)
Starring: Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Max von Sydow & William Hurt
Synopsis: Robin and his followers, in 13th century England, fight against local corruption and end up beginning an uprising that could change the balance of power in the world.
First Thoughts: This definitely looks different than any other Robin Hood movie that has come before. It does kind of look like Gladiator though.
