Hello Blog Readers. This is Marcus Jackson, the FOX 10 / CW 55 Resident Movie Guru here.
Well it’s The Memorial Day Weekend. Now many of us see this as the unofficial start of the summer with schools letting out for vacation; kids graduating from high school and college; and you want to try out that new grill on your patio with some steaks, burgers, hot dogs, and fish … you get the ideal. That’s a lot of fun things to do on this big holiday weekend.
Now I just want you to remember what Memorial Day is really all about. Just remember all of the men and women that throughout the years have given their lives in the service to our country in our Armed Forces and also our Police, Fire & Rescue, and especially our First Responders. They have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we may be safe and sound in our homes and able to go out and enjoy the freedoms that we have in this country today.
With that said, The Memorial Day Weekend is always a BIG WEEKEND for Movie Lovers and Movie Goers. Usually the Summer Movie Season would start on this holiday weekend but as we know by now it started at the beginning of this month of May with the release of Iron Man 3. It stayed at the top of the box office for two weeks but this past weekend Star Trek: Into Darkness took over the top spot. Now the Space/Time Continuum is about to take a turn into a Three Lane Warp Drive when three new films are about to beam aboard the Summer Movie Showdown Merry-Go-Round in theaters this Memorial Day Weekend.
First up, The “Wolf Pack” is back for one last ride to wrap up this very successful movie franchise, The Hangover Part III. Yes, everyone is back and this one is supposed to be a little bit darker but as funny if not funnier. Check out this trailer and judge for yourself …. http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2312742425/
Now the Wolf Pack will be up against another pack of wild drivers that are just “Fast & Furious” That’s right; the much anticipated sequel for the film franchise, Fast and Furious 6, shifts into high gear on the big screen. This time Vin Diesel and company gets recruited by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to help track down a new gang of car drivers that are stealing military type weapons and vehicles. Check out the action from this trailer to get you all revved up ….. http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2942936857/
Now if you have to entertain the kids this holiday weekend we have very good movie to take them to with an all-star voice cast. You can say that it’s an “Epic’ event to go and witness for yourself. The movie is called …. Very appropriately … Epic. Check out this trailer and you’ll see what I mean ….
This is what we have to look forward to this Memorial Day Weekend at the Box Office this year. So if you got the time this weekend after you’ve been to the beach or grilling that perfect steak burger or just ready to see a great film put on your Iron man armor, get in your 1940s jalopy, Warp Speed on the Enterprise, plan your road trip to Vegas, super up your cars with NO2, or just take a trip to an enchanted forest ready to fight for what you want see.
Just get out and go see a great movie. And this is almost the end of May. We Are Just Getting To The Good Stuff!
