Movies Opening this Weekend, Friday, April 12
Are you ready to hit the theater this weekend? There's something for everyone, and I wouldn't mind seeing all three of these!
First up, Hellboy -- In case you missed it, in 2004Guillermo del Toro's wrote and directed an adaptation of the comic book first. This one features Stranger Things star David Harbour playing the titular character, originated by Ron Perlman: a demon raised by a human father to become a wisecracking, butt-kicking agent for the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. Ian McShane, Milla Jovovich, Sasha Lane and Daniel Dae Kim also star. Rated R.
Next up, Little -- This trailer had me on Fandango.com, ready to buy my ticket for this weekend. Regina Hall plays a villainous boss who's transformed into a 14-year-old version of herself, played by black-ish star Marsai Martin, when the pressures of adulthood become too much to bear. Get this... Martin also served as an executive producer on the project, which, at 14 years old herself, she is the youngest person to hold that title on a Hollywood production. Insecure’s Issa Rae also stars. Rated PG-13.
Finally, Missing Link -- Zach Galifanakis provides the voice of a Sasquatch who, with the help of an explorer and an adventurer -- voiced respectively by Hugh Jackman and Zoe Saldana -- searches for his long-lost relatives.T his stop-motion animated family adventure comedy looks pretty adorable. Listen for Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry, Santa Clarita Diet's Timothy Olyphant and Game of Thrones' Amrita Acharia who provide additional voices. Rated PG.
