An assortment of completely different films enter the box office race this weekend, all itching to take down those apes before they rise up to number one again. Critics are already buzzing that Final Destination 5 is the best installment since Final Destination 2, which sounds kinda weird saying, but it’s a horror sequel so you’ll take what you can get. Meanwhile 30 Minutes or Less reunites Jesse Eisenberg with his Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer (and funnyman Aziz Ansari) on a comedy that’s not without its own little controversy. Everyone raves about The Help (the novel), and we hear the film ain’t so bad either. Finally, Glee hits the big screen (in 3D) in a concert film featuring live performances and backstage shenanigans.
Following a weekend that saw what is perhaps this summer’s most enjoyable blockbuster hit theaters, does the second weekend of August bring with it even more goodies, or is it all downhill from here?
You know the drill: Sound off below with your thoughts on Final Destination 5, 30 Minutes of Less, The Help and Glee Live 3D.
