COMING ATTRACTIONS

Friday, August 27th

MOVIE MINUTE: TAKERS

Takers follows a group of bank robbers trying to grab 20-million dollars
from their next mark. The flick stars Hayden Christensen, Chris Brown and
Matt Dillon, and Hayden told us he loves the action in this film.

“Everybody making this movie was so excited by it, it’s a true
action movie, so you were excited to go to work.”

Chris Brown told us about getting to do stunts on set.

“The most thrilling part of this movie is the stunts, like all the
stuff we do. I do almost 96 percent of my stunts.”

Check out Takers when it breaks into theaters this Friday.

The Last Exorcism

Patrick Fabian, Ashley Bell, Iris Bahr, and Louis Herthum

After a career spent helping the devout through prayer and trickery, Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) invites a film crew to document his final fraudulent days as an exorcist. Soon his faith is truly tested when a desperate plea from the father of a possessed girl (Ashley Bell) brings him face to face with the devil himself.

Umm…Well, this movie pretty much is between The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity. I give it about 1 1/2 thumbs up. Why?! Well cuz…At the beginning it was kind of slow and I wasn’t so sure which direction the story was heading to. But, towards the middle I got the whole concept of the movie. There were some JUMPy Moments! So, If you did like the two movies I mentioned earlier then you want to go see this one. -kp

Centurion (Limited)

Michael Fassbender, Dominic West ,and Olga Kurylenko

In ancient Scotland, a Roman officer named Quintus Dias (Michael Fassbender) is liberated from his Pictish captors by the Ninth Legion. The soldiers are in pursuit of the Picts’ leader, and Quintus joins their quest. Soon after, the Romans’ Pictish guide betrays them, resulting in the slaughter of all but a handful of men. Quintus and his fellow survivors try desperately to reach safety as enemy warriors pick them off one by one.

WYCLEF RELEASES NEW SONG

Wyclef Jean released a new song, “Pou Kepa,” online Thursday. According to

song follows the electoral council’s ruling that the former Fugees star
cannot run for the Haitian presidency due to a failure to fulfill residency
requirements. Oscar-winner and activist Sean Penn urged Jean to bow out of
the race on Wednesday.

“This is my new song contesting the CEP, in Creole. We want equal rights and
justice!”
