Memorial Day Weekend is all about cookouts, cocktails, and catching some sun... but we won't judge you if you need a break from the heat. Cool off in the wonders of an air-conditioned theater the night before the big barbecue. Here's the scoop on three flicks showing this Friday, May 25.
Men in Black 3
Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are back as Agent J and K in this third installment of the alien franchise that started back in 1997. As it turns out, Agent J (Smith) will be traveling back in time, too, where he will meet a young Agent K, played by Josh Brolin, who will help him discover secrets that will save old Agent K... and the future of mankind!
Sexy: Young Agent K
Not sexy: Old Agent K
Verdict: Reunite with your old crew for a night of reminiscing with this blast from the past — personally, we'd skip the additional-charge 3D glasses, though.
When six daredevils choose Pripyat — the city that housed the disastrous Chernobyl nuclear reactor — as their next vacation spot, the "extreme" tourist attraction lives up to its name when they find themselves stranded in the ghost town... and not alone.
Sexy: A handful of hotties, including Jesse McCartney and Nathan Phillips
Not sexy: Creepy radioactive creatures on the hunt
Verdict: If you're into Paranormal Activity, this thriller from the same mastermind will probably be right up your alley.
In this latest offbeat comedy from Wes Anderson, two 12-year-olds fall in love at a 1965 New England summer camp and run off together into the wilderness. The girl's parents (Bill Murray and Frances McDormand), the local sheriff (Bruce Willis), and a Khaki Scout troop leader (Edward Norton) all try to hunt down the adolescent duo, turning the whole town upside down in the process.
Sexy: First crushes
Not sexy: Runaways
Verdict: Round up the hipsters in your life and practice your soft chuckling for what many critics are calling Wes Anderson's best movie yet.
