Bloodied: Vampire hunter Abraham Lincoln readies for battle with Vadoma in Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter,
which opens on August 2.
Winter movie magic
Chuck Norris may have
counted to infinity twice, but
you're gonna have to wait
until the end of the month to
see Chuck and Arnold, with Sly, Jet,
Jean-Claude, Bruce and the rest of
the hard-yard brigade stacked into
an action flick that'll make The Dirty
Dozen look like a carton of free-
Now the school holidays are over,
winter's third trimester brings a brace
of movies to Downtown Cinemas that
have guaranteed appeal across all
adult age groups.
Gothic, action, comedy, romance,
thriller and drama all get big-screen
time, and from next Thursday, August
2, the season opens with the much-
anticipated Tim Burton-produced,
alternate-history-fantasy epic Abraham
Lincoln Vampire Hunter.
Burton and director Timur
Bekmambetov have reinvented the
vampire genre to present the terrifying
undead creatures of the night as they
were meant to be -- visceral, intense
and insatiably bloodthirsty.
Move over Van Helsing, there's a
new Abe shooting the silver bullets,
as the 16th president of the United
States proves to be the mightiest
vampire hunter of them all. Abraham
Lincoln Vampire Hunter also features
Kiwi actor Marton Csokas.
The Campaign introduces political
machinations of quite a different
calibre and era on August 9. Will Ferrell
plays long-term incumbent
congressman Cam Brady who makes a
major public gaffe in the lead-up to an
A couple of businessmen take
advantage of this by putting up their
own patsy candidate, the naive Marty
Huggins, director of the local tourism
centre played by Zach Galifianakis. The
comedy also features Dan Aykroyd and
There's been The Bourne Identity,
The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne
Ultimatum, all starring Matt Damon.
Now there's The Bourne Legacy.
Opening on August 16, the fourth
Bourne movie is not based on a Robert
Ludlum story, written instead by
Bourne franchise supremo Tony Gilroy.
Neither does it feature Damon's
Bourne, instead taking a whole new
slant, with its plot triggered by events
in the preceding three films, and
introducing a new hero in Aaron Cross
played by Jeremy Renner.
In the vein of Best Exotic Marigold
Hotel, there's Hope Springs opening
on August 23, featuring the somewhat
unlikely combination of Meryl Streep,
Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell.
After 30 years of marriage, a couple
attend an intense, week-long
counselling session to work on their
relationship. For Kay, just convincing
the stubborn Arnold to sign on is hard
enough -- the real challenge comes as
they shed their bedroom hang-ups
and try to re-ignite the spark that
brought them together in the first
There's also The Baby Makers,a
comedy about a man who, after failing
to get his wife pregnant, recruits his
pals to steal the deposit he left at a
sperm bank some years before.
Moonrise Kingdom on August 30 is
set on an island off the coast of New
England in the summer of 1965. It tells
the story of two 12 year olds who fall
in love, make a secret pact, and run
away together into the wilderness, just
as a violent storm brews. The hunt for
the pair turns the peaceful island
community upside down. Bruce Willis
and Edward Norton star.
Speaking of Bruce, he turns up as Mr
Church in The Expendables 2 also on
August 30, enlisting the band of old-
school mercenaries to take on a
seemingly simple job, which, of course,
turns out to be not so simple.
