The Movie Fanatic: 8/24 – Lawless, The Impossible, Passion, Butter, and More

Another week, another Movie Fanatic post! We have a decent amount of trailers this week, and some pretty exciting ones at that. So what new trailers came out and what is coming out in theaters this weekend? Read on and find out.

The first trailer this week is a red band trailer for Lawless, opening August 29th, a new western starring Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy. It’s a true story of the infamous Bondurant brothers on their quest for the American Dream and things get complicated when they get involved with the wrong people. This trailer is NSFW so make sure your boss is not looking when you watch it.

What happens when you take both Sherlock Holmes’ leading female actresses and put them in a movie? Passion. This film is about a young businesswoman that plots a murderous revenge against her boss and mentor who stole her idea. Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace are both amazing actresses so this will be interesting.

Next up is Least Among Saints being released on October 12th. A haunted soldier just back from war and a boy who has never known peace in his home life embark on a life-changing journey as they become unlikely friends — and one another’s last shot at redemption.

Jennifer Garner stars in the movie Butter, opening October 5th. In small-town Iowa, an adopted girl discovers her talent for butter carving and finds herself pitted against an ambitious local woman in their town’s annual contest.

What would you do to protect your family if a tsunami happened? Well the next trailer for The Impossible answers this. A true story of a families survival and reuniting of the 2004 tsunami. Looks to be a good one!

So what is coming out in theaters this weekend? Adrenaline inducing bicycle action flick, Premium Rush and evil spirit haunting horror film, The Apparition. Not much really happening right now. It is kinda that dead time until the holiday films start trickling out. So what are you going to watch this weekend? Catch a movie at the theater or Red Box, maybe even The Hunger Games? Whatever you decide, make it a good one. See you next week for another Movie Fanatic post!
