My kids can’t wait to see the new The Angry Birds Movie — especially my youngest son. He’s an Angry Birds nut. It’s a good thing there’s an early screening of The Angry Birds Movie next weekend (10 am, Saturday, May 14th, Regal Bridgeport). Download and print out your free tickets at the Sony Screenings site. The Angry Birds Movie will open in theaters May 20th.
My kids and I recently watched Against the Wild 2: Survive the Serengeti. The movie is about two children using all their skills to survive in the African bush after their plane crashes. Against the Wild 2 is a film the entire family can watch together (it’s rated PG). It’s not a comedy or packed with a lot of action, but it does have some suspense and you can’t help but root for the kids in the story. Against The Wild 2 (Anchor Bay Entertainment) is available now on digital HD, and will be available on DVD on May 10th.
Mowgli remained in first place at the box office. Over the weekend, The Jungle Book grossed another $43.7 million. The Huntsman: Winter’s War barely remained in second place with $9.6 million. Keanu opened in third place with $9.5 million gross. Continue reading to see the box office take for last weekend.
It’s another slow week for new DVD and Blu-ray movies. New releases this week include Joy (Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro), The Choice (Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer), The 5th Wave (Chloë Grace Moretz), and Remember (Christopher Plummer). I’ve seen The Choice and enjoyed it (review). Continue reading for a summary of the new Blu-rays and DVDs for this week.
I recently watched The Choice on DVD. The Choice is about two young people falling in love. But then tragedy strikes, and one of them is forced to make a very difficult choice. The film is actually another love story by Nicholas Sparks. In my opinion, it’s a good one. So if you’re in the mood for a love story, then this is the movie for you. The Choice (Lionsgate) is available now on digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on May 3rd. Note: The Choice is rated PG-13. There’s a couple of implied sex scenes in the film. Otherwise the movie should be fine for most kids.
