Some good movies are opening this week. Shaun the Sheep, from Aardman Animations, is currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Oh, and it’s also dialogue-free. The Wolfpack, starting Friday at the Nickelodeon, is a documentary about a group of brothers raised in captivity in NYC, learning most of what they know from movies. It looks like a riveting and unbelievable story.
Dinosaurs of more than one sort are featured in this week’s new movies. We’ve got the re-animated type in Jurassic World and the musical type in the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy. And since it’s the summer there are a couple movie series happening. The Nickelodeon just kicked off their Southern Gothic Series and Regal Cinemas has their family-oriented Summer Movie Express.
The movie I’m really looking forward to this week is Tommorowland. Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird, co-written by Damon Lindelof (of LOST), and stars George Clooney. I just don’t see how it can fail. And if you go see it on Friday at a Regal Cinema with your Regal Crown Club card, you have a chance to get a Tomorrowland pin.
