Welcome to this week’s special edition of ‘Friday Night Movies‘ because it’s Turkey week and new movies are released on Wednesday for families to go to the movies over the long weekend. But is there anything good coming out? You bet your ass there is! Hit the jump to find out what came out today!
So now we start to get our holiday and family movies and that’s what this weekend is all about. We have the highly anticipated The Muppets FINALLY coming out. I hope you saw my previous post with all the spoof trailers they had. This is the one movie I really want to see this weekend. But Martin Scorsese submits his Oscar contention film, Hugo which is also another trailer I posted in the past. Another movie I’ve been wanting to see. The final movie coming out is Arthur Christmas which is an animated flick. Anyways, if you haven’t seen any of the trailers for these movies, don’t worry. You can’t watch each one below!
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. — (C) Walt Disney
Throughout his extraordinary career, Academy Award-wining director Martin Scorsese has brought his unique vision and dazzling gifts to life in a series of unforgettable films. This holiday season the legendary storyteller invites you to join him on a thrilling journey to a magical world with his first-ever 3-D film, based on Brian Selznick’s award-winning, imaginative New York Times best-seller, “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.” Hugo is the astonishing adventure of a wily and resourceful boy whose quest to unlock a secret left to him by his father will transform Hugo and all those around him, and reveal a safe and loving place he can call home. — (C) Paramount
The 3D, CG-animated family comedy Arthur Christmas, an Aardman production for Sony Pictures Animation, at last reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child’s question: ‘So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?’ The answer: Santa’s exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic – a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns. — (C) Sony Pictures
And don’t worry, I didn’t forget. Happy Thanksgiving! Until next week…
