Weekly US film releases: 'Toy Story 3' in 3D, 'Jonah Hex' and Jonah Hill
Tuesday 15 June 2010
On June 18,
Toy Story returns after more than a decade for its third installment, and this time hits the screen in 3D, with the same cast and a batch of new toys for the summer's latest blockbuster. DC Comics brings
Jonah Hex to the big screen with Josh Brolin while a couple film festival favorites arrive for a limited release.
Toy Story 3
In 3D, this animated family favorite follows Woody, Buzz Lightyear and friends mistakenly donated to a daycare center when Andy heads to college but the new home is all fun and games. With the all-star voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Michael Keaton, and Timothy Dalton, this adventure is directed by Lee Unkrich, who did the second installment back in 1999. Releases in 20 countries this week, from Brazil to China, then Australia next week, Europe in July, and Scandinavia in August.
Based on the DC Comics character, this western action film stars Josh Brolin ( Milk, No Country For Old Men) in the title role with John Malkovich ( Burn After Reading) and Megan Fox ( Transformers). The story centers on a disfigured bounty hunter seeking revenge on a villain to earn his own freedom and save the earth. Directed by Jimmy Hayward ( Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who), the film also features Michael Fassbender ( Inglourious Basterds) and Michael Shannon ( Revolutionary Road).
Co-starring Jonah Hill ( Get Him to the Greek, Knocked Up), Marisa Tomei ( The Wrestler) and John C. Reilly ( Step Brothers), the Sundance Film Fest winner is written and directed by the team of brothers Mark and Jay Duplass. The odd comedy focuses on a divorced man who meets the woman of his dreams except that her teenage son does not want to share his mother.
I Am Love
Indie favorite Tilda Swinton stars with Flavio Parenti and Edoardo Gabbriellini in Luca Guadagnino's lush but tragic love story about an Italian family torn apart by a passionate affair.
