New Movies This Weekend: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, Rush, Don Jon and Baggage Claim
There are four new movies opening this week. The first an animated sequel that’s perfect for the kids. It’s up against Ron Howard’s Formula One racing movie “Rush” and two romantic comedies.
“SNL’s” Bill Hader returns for this animated sequel about a guy who invented a machine that turns water into food. We thought he’d destroyed it at the end of the first movie, but it turns out the machine survived and now it’s making food-animal hybrids.
Chris Hemsworth plays a Formula One racecar driver in a vicious rivalry with an Austrian opponent in the 1970s. Olivia Wilde plays his wife, and it’s directed by Ron Howard and based on a true story.
Joseph Gordon Levitt makes his directorial debut with a romantic comedy he also wrote. He plays a guy whose porn addiction clashes with Scarlett Johansson’s old-fashioned expectations from watching too many romantic Hollywood movies.
Paula Patton plays a flight attendant who’s so desperate for a date to her little sister’s wedding, she agrees to stalk her ex-boyfriends through her job.
