New Movies This Weekend: Green Lantern And Mr. Poppers Penguins
2 new movies this weekend: Green Lantern and Mr. Poppers Penguins. Basically the decision comes down to if you you're going with little kids or a little older kids. Get the low down on both and watch the trailers inside.
"Green Lantern" (PG-13)
Ryan Reynolds gets a ring from a dying alien that gives him the power to create anything he can imagine. Blake Lively plays his girlfriend. The movie's based on the classic "Green Lantern" comic books, which tell the story of Hal Jordan, the first human to become a member of an intergalactic peacekeeping force called the Green Lantern Corps.
--The Corps consists entirely of CGI aliens, with Mark Strong, Geoffrey Rush, and Michael Clarke Duncan as some of the main voices. Peter Sarsgaard plays the bad guy, Angela Bassett is a government agent, and Tim Robbins plays a U.S. Senator.
"Mr. Popper's Penguins" (PG)
Jim Carrey plays an uptight businessman who inherits six penguins that no one's willing to take off his hands. Eventually a guy from the zoo shows up, but by then he's realized they're his last chance to reconnect with his kids.
