Well, well, well, Paramount Pictures has decided to unveil the release date for JJ Abrams‘ top secret sci-fi project Super 8. Like most of you, we’re excited to see what the director has in store for us with the film but its scheduling might split hairs with some fans. If you love both sci-fi and action movies you might have to cough up some extra dough because Super 8 opens the same weekend as Universal’s Fast and the Furious sequel Fast Five. Do you see one or both?
Both Super 8 and Fast Five will hit theaters on June 10, 2011. Both will feature ensemble casts with familiar faces but who will win your money that opening weekend? Super 8 stars Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, Gabriel Basso and AJ Michalka. And of course, the film will be directed by Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg.
Fast Five has action stars, musicians turned actors, and wrestlers turned actors with Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, and Sung Kang just to name a few. The movie will heavily rely on the nostalgia factor by reuniting the casts of the previous four installments. The question is will you play into their marketing strategy?
Which movie do you plan on seeing? Fast Five or Super 8? Will you cough up the money and see both?
