There are three films we think you should head out and see this week as they’re all out tomorrow. There’s an uplifting sporty number from Brad Pitt, a fab tale from the life of Marylin Monroe and a heartfelt comedy from Seth Rogan. Read on to find out about each film.
We’ve been looking forward to this film since we first heard about it and can’t wait to catch it at the cinema. It’s all about Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), the general manager of Oakland Athletics, who revolutionises his team Baseball team by hiring an Ivy League economics specialist who knows how to subvert the system of accessing players that have been in place for nearly a century. But as Bean and his “accomplish” starts hiring injured aged players they face resistance from the team’s long time manager Art Howe.
If you love a feel good drama this is just the one for you.
My Week With Marilyn
This film looks amazing and has got rave reviews from the critics. It stars Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe during her brief stay in England as she filmed The Prince and the Showgirl and revolves around the love affair between her and a young Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne). However drama ensues as she hasn’t come alone and is actually on a honeymoon with her husband. However when he leaves Clark and Monroe develops a special connection and the drama begins when Marilyn’s true colours start to show.
It looks brilliant and Williams is a spitting image of the star.
This heartfelt comedy is actually set on the writers’ lives (Seth Rogan and Will Reiser) and how they changed when Reiser was diagnosed with cancer. Seth Rogan also stars in the film and acts alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who plays the character based on Reiser).
It looks brilliant and is another film that has gained rave reviews.
