Last weekend, "The Grey" pulled away from the rest of the pack to claim the top spot at the box office. But Liam Neeson will have to flex even more muscles if he wants to survive against this weekend's contenders.
Three major releases are going wide this weekend, and in some way, shape, or form all three involve the supernatural, though in decidedly different ways. There's a ghost story, a movie about telekinetic super powers, and a movie that uses the word "miracle" in the title! With so many super selections, we boil down the choices below along with what kind of fans will enjoy each flick. Whatever you decide, here's hoping you have an out-of-this world experience.
Rated PG for language.
What's the Story?
During the height of the cold war, near a chilly Alaskan town, three Grey whales are trapped under thickening Arctic ice. After local newsman Adam Carlson (John Krasinski) reports on the dire situation, a cavalcade of unlikely allies comes north to help. The whales may just stand a chance if Adam and his environmentalist ex-girlfriend (Drew Barrymore), the Inuits and the oil companies, and the Russians and the Americans can put aside their differences to clear some serious ice.
Who Will Dig It?
If you like moving, inspirational, true stories that show we're more similar than dissimilar, then you should have a whale of time watching this feel-good fin-flick.
20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 for intense action and violence, thematic material, some language, sexual content, and teen drinking.
