Movies In Theaters This Friday, May 27, 2011: HANGOVER 2, KUNG FU PANDA 2, THE TREE OF LIFE and more
It’s Friday and time to take a look at what’s coming out today, May 27, 2011. Once again, few movies are coming out this weekend surely because no studio wants to compete with HANGOVER 2. Except maybe Brad Pitt in the Cannes award winning movie “THE TREE OF LIFE“.
The Hangover 2
Synopsis: In the follow-up to the record-breaking hit comedy “The Hangover,” Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.
Kung Fu Panda 2
Synopsis: Po is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior, protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five – Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey. But Po’s new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. It is up to Po and The Furious Five to journey across China to face this threat and vanquish it. But how can Po stop a weapon that can stop kung fu? He must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins; only then will he be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.
The Tree of Life
Synopsis: From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as Badlands, Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950’s. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick’s signature imagery, we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our lives as individuals and families, but all life.
We Are the Night
Synopsis: Lena, an 18-year-old petty thief is bitten by Louise, the leader of a trio of female vampires that are as deadly as they are gorgeous. Lena soon discovers that her newfound existence as a vampire is both a blessing, when she’s enjoying the freedom, luxury, and parties, and a curse, when she falls dangerously in love with a young, undercover policeman.
