Your Ticket Inside the Movies


Theater Releases – 6/24

Posted June 24, 2011 by Max in Featured

As expected Green Lantern took number 1 last week at the Box Office. I’m quite certain that W.O.M. is going to be horrible on that one so look for it to take diminishing returns this weekend. This week I actually thought Bad Teacher was going to be at least a good comedy, seems I was wrong. Also, Pixar releases its first theatrical crash with Cars 2. I added a new section with Twitter Thoughts. Let me know if you like it.

Cars 2

Synopsis: Star race car Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. But the road to the championship becomes rocky as Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.

Buzz: I might be wrong on this, but I think I remember Disney telling Pixar they needed to make a few sequels in their new agreement. The reviews make this sound more of a financial move and not one that was really wanted by Pixar. Nevertheless, expect this movie to make millions from merchandise and Disney might just see fit for a Cars 3.


@TheWrap ‘Cars 2’: It’s like that rusted clunker sitting on blocks in your neighbor’s yard, bringing down your property value

@Cinemactik i would rather sit in an overnight parking lot for 2 hrs and look at real cars do nothing than watch CARS 2

@JeremyKKirk 6 years ago, if you would have told me PIXAR would have their worst movie with a CARS 2, I would have said, “Yeah, you’re probably right.”

Bad Teacher

Synopsis: Some teachers just don’t give an F. For example, there’s Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz). She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can’t wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch). When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other. — (C) Sony Pictures

Buzz: The trailers looked interesting if only because I typically hate Cameron Diaz and in this she seemed loathe worthy. I probably won’t see this, but perhaps somewhere in my mind I thought it would’ve been fun.
