This week features several new DVD and Blu-ray movies. They include A Good Day to Die Hard (Bruce Willis), Warm Bodies (Nicholas Hoult), Escape From Planet Earth (animated), Identity Thief (Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy), and 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded. I think I want to watch them all. Read on for a summary of the new film releases.
My youngest daughter (age seven) and I saw Escape from Planet Earth (The Weinstein Company). The animated movie is about an alien astronaut who comes to Earth because of a SOS signal. But instead of rescuing someone, the alien ends up getting captured. My daughter loved the film. I enjoyed it too, but I think this is one of those movies that children will enjoy more than parents will. Escape from Planet Earth is out in theaters now.
Did everyone have a great Valentine’s Day? My wife had to work last night so we just had a quick dinner at home. Anyway, there are several good movies out this weekend. New releases include Beautiful Creatures (Jeremy Irons), A Good Day to Die Hard (Bruce Willis), Escape From Planet Earth (Brendan Fraser), and Safe Haven (Josh Duhamel). My youngest kids want to see Escape From Planet Earth, my oldest daughter likes Beautiful Creatures, my wife would love to see Safe Haven, and I’m a Die Hard fan.
Has anyone heard of Escape from Planet Earth? I didn’t until recently. When I first heard the title, I thought it was another film in the Planet of the Apes series. Escape from Planet Earth (The Weinstein Company) is actually an animated movie about some blue aliens from the planet Baab. The film hits theaters on Friday, February 15th. And thanks to The Weinstein Company, I’m hosting a giveaway on my dad blog. The prize is a $25 Visa gift card and an Escape from Planet Earth swag bag. Nice!
