The post-Captain America pre-X-Men Apocalypse weekend box office has a little something for everyone this week as three very different movies storm into your local cinema. Angry Birds: The Movie, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, and The Nice Guys all open this Friday.
Depending on who you’re seeing this movie with will most likely determine what you’re going to see. If you’re looking for something to do with your kids, Angry Birds has probably been circled on your calendar for a while. If you’re looking for a light date night movie, maybe you’re going to check out another round of Zac Efron launching Seth Rogen into things via detached airbag. If you are trying to find that sleeper hit of the summer, look no further than The Nice Guys— a movie where Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling play private eyes.
If you’re like me and somewhat undecided as to what movie to check out, here’s all the info you’ll need to make your decision:
THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE (via Rotten Tomatoes)
In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we’ll finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds–or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
NEIGHBORS 2 (via Wikipedia)
Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are expecting their second child and preparing to sell their old house, which is subjected to a 30-day escrow. However, a newly established hard-partying sorority, Kappa Nu, led by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz), has moved into their neighboring house. To prevent the buyers pulling out, Mac and Kelly are soon forced to reunite with Teddy (Zac Efron) to help battle the sorority sisters.
THE NICE GUYS (via Wikipedia)
In 1970s Los Angeles, down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Ryan Gosling) and hired enforcer Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl named Amelia (Margaret Qualley) and apparent suicide of a fading porn star Misty Mountains (Murielle Telio). During their investigation, they uncover a shocking criminal conspiracy which reaches up to the highest circles of power.
