Weekend Picks: ‘The Five-Year Engagement,’ ‘The Raven,’ ‘Safe’ & ‘The Pirates! Band of Misfits’
Last week something happened that hasn't in a long time—a movie other than "The Hunger Games" made it to No. 1 at the box office! In surprising fashion, the romantic comedy "Think Like a Man" earned the top spot while racking up some $33 million. Alas, it will be hard-pressed to stay there this weekend, seeing as four new films are opening wide on Friday.
It's a crapshoot as to which new film might win the weekend, since they all feature big names and appeal to wide audiences. But with so many fine flicks debuting, how can you possibly decide what you should see? Well, that's where we come in! Read on for a breakdown of what each movie is about and who it's for. Then let us know who you think will take the weekend box office crown in our poll below.
Rated R for sexual content, and language throughout.
What's the Story?
Jason Segel and Emily Blunt play a couple who just can't seem to get their wedding act together. A cross-country career move acts as the catalyst for a gradual spiral into relationship hell. Stolen smooches, hilarious hunting, frozen toes and even knitwear ensues... A LOT of knitwear!
Who Will Dig it?
"Forgetting Sarah Marshall" fans should like this as it was written and directed by the same team, including Segel who co-wrote. But don't be disappointed if you don't see Segel's man-bits... his full-frontal scene was cut out this time around.
Rated R for strong violence throughout, and for language.
