August 1st: Mummy is back
A new summer month and a new bunch of movie premiers to keep you returning to the nearest movie theatre over and over again. So that’s what you just can’t miss on the first day of August.
He’s already defeated the mummy… twice. Rick O’Connell (Brendan Fraser) is back in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor to check out how Chinese guys are doing over there. In the new sequel flick Fraser has to combat the resurrected Han Emperor (Jet Li) in an epic that races from the catacombs of ancient China high into the frigid Himalayas.
Rick O’Connell is joined by son Alex (Luke Ford), wife Evelyn (Maria Bello) and her brother, Jonathan (John Hannah). This time, it’s a 2,000-year-old curse to awake a mummy. The Dragon Emperor mummy will rouse his legion to quest for world domination, unless the O’Connells stop him first.
And as opposite to blockbusting nature of the Mummy, the Brideshead Revisited tells us a story of British decadence between the World Wars showing a young man (Matthew Goode, Match Point) fascinated with the wealthy Marchmain family, especially Sebastian (Ben Whishaw, Perfume) and his sophisticated sister, Julia (Hayley Atwell).
The film is based on the Evelyn Waugh novel about memoirs of Captain Charles Ryder who is stationed at Brideshead Castle. What I like about the movie is that Emma Thompson co-stars as Lady Marchmain.
In case you love movies about high school proms and douches who try to get popular and successful watch The Rocker with The Office star Rainn Wilson as an adult rock drummer who never had his shot of fame, but who finally gets his chance at the big time with his nephew’s band.
Swing Vote is something we should watch before the Election Day. Kevin Costner (The Bodyguard) is the lovable apathetic loser whose 12-year-old daughter sets off a chain of events that puts the entire responsibility for the presidential election in her dad’s hands.
Suddenly, Bud Johnson, the nobody, becomes the voice for everybody when the world realizes that his vote will be the one that elects the next president.
Is America obsessed with beauty? Darryl Roberts, the director of this documentary that opens Friday in NY and will hit LA on August 22, is wondering what people have to go through to fit in the modern standards of beauty and survive in the cruel world of catwalk shows and multiple cosmetic ads imposing lifestyle and priorities.
America The Beatiful tells the story of Gerren Taylor, one of America’s next top supermodels and stars Gerren Taylor, Paris Hilton, Julianne Moore, Anthony Kiedis, Jessica Simpson. It’s like a mirror to the American psyche to show that the same beauty that could jump-start a model’s career could ultimately destroy her young life.
