Well it is no surprise, Michael Bay‘s Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen (60.0 million on the first day!!) is going to take the top spot at the box office this week. Looks like we are going to need tissues on-hand while watching Nick Cassavetes‘ film, My Sister’s Keeper starring Cameron Diaz and Abigail Breslin. A young girl with leukemia and a even younger sister who is forced to donate organs in order to have her sister survive. I’m still not sure if I like the story but whatever the case, it will be a heartfelt film.
Things seem to be depressing in the movie world this week. From a sick young girl, we go to soldiers in Iraq who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat in Kathryn Bigelow‘s The Hurt Locker starring Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie. As if, that wasn’t bad enough we then have Cyrus Nowrasteh The Stoning of Soraya M. set in 1986 Iran.
Withall that is going on in Iran right now with the deadly protest, this film seems very fitting as we see a side of Iran that has been non-existent in films until now. Oh, and haven’t we already seen the older woman going after the younger man to the dismay of his mother (Easy Virtue)? Stephen Frears Cheri seems have the same concept.
