The main movie release this week is the eagerly anticipated dancing animation sequel, Rio 2 on April 11th. Jewel and Blu are now happily settled down since the events of the first film and have 3 children. They decided however, that they wish to move to the Amazon, quite the trip from Rio de Janeiro. Nigel the Cockatoo is back, seeking revenge! This is definitely something for the kids (and maybe a few adults too!)
If you’re looking for something a bit more spooky, Oculus has you covered. A family with a dark and disturbing history, decide to find out just how 2 members of their family died. Convinced it was a supernatural force, the family find out that some things are just left alone. Critics are already raving about this film and it’s certainly set to scare the heck out of you on April 11th.
March 7th sees the release of a sequel that was certainly unexpected, 300: Rise of an Empire.Unfortunately there’s no beefy Gerard Butler in the sequel, but we’ve got the just as lovely Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green instead. This new chapter of the saga explores the events after 300, and the battles that took place. Expect some cool slow motion kills and CGI in this popcorn flick.
Something for the kids however, is Mr. Peabody and Sherman releasing on March 7th. Mr. Peabody is the world’s smartest individual, but he also happens to be a dog. With the help of his adopted boy Sherman, the duo are tasked with rewriting history in this time travelling adventure. With Ty Burrell and Stephen Colbert providing voices for the film, it’s set to be an adventure for kids of all ages!
First up, this week there are some notable film releases this Friday.
Frozen, Disney’s newest venture, is an animated musical comedy loosely based on The Snow Queen. Voiced by Kirsten Bell, Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff, Frozen promises a charming tale, full of laughter and perfect for a family night out.
For something lighter, consider seeing A Long Way From Home. A romance about two couples from different generations colliding in the south of France.
