Unstoppable

Having chatted with the lovely Denzel Washington only a few weeks ago, we couldn’t NOT recommend one of the films this week. That’s not all though, there are a whole host of films out if you’re looking for some fast paced action and drama… plus we’ve got an amazing DVD recommendation if comedy’s up your street.

Denzel Washington’s newest flick Unstoppable has just hit cinemas (it came out 24.11.10). With an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train barrelling toward a city, veteran engineer (Delcious, err, we mean Denzel) and a young conductor (equally yummy Chris Pine) must race against the clock to prevent a catastrophe. Last week in an exclusive interview with Denzel, he told us how frightening it was to be running on top of the train—check out this flick and see if that fear translates onto the big screen.

London Boulevard and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest

From two hotties to another, George Clooney stars as an assassin in the movie The American which comes out Friday (26.11.10).   While in the midst of constructing a weapon for a mysterious contact, Mathilde (Thekla Reuten), Clooney’s character Jack pursues a torrid liason with a beautiful woman named Clara (Violante Placido). Jack and Clara’s time together evolves into a romance, one seemingly free of danger. But is Jack tempting fate by stepping out of the shadows?  You’ll have to see for yourself.

If you’re in for psychological thriller, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest premieres this Friday (26.11.10). Starring Swedish actors Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist, this suspense-filled drama follows the story of Lisbeth (Rapace), a woman awaiting trial for three murders she did not commit while Mikael (Nyvqist) attempts to prove her innocence. We didn’t love it as much as is predecessor The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo but it’s definitely worth a cinema ticket.

Also out is Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley’s latest flick, London Boulevard. Set in South London, an ex-con (Ferrell) tries to leave behind his criminal past in exchange for a job as handyman for a reclusive actress (Knightley). Having not seen these guys on the big screen together before I’m looking forward to catching this film. Plus, BATD favourite, Ray Winstone, is the baddie in the flick which is reason enough to go and see it!

If you fancy seeing a flick while staying in this weekend, pick up this great DVD from Ricky Gervais….
