This week we have 2 new movies ,both of which look great.
The Family (aka Malavita)
Directed by Luc Besson (Taken) ,this action comedy is about a mafia family who lives under witness protection in a quiet neighbourhood.Starring acting heavyweight ,Robert DeNiro ,the trailers looked very interesting.But theres a slight chance it could just be a timepass watch.
My anticipated movie of the week is
Insidious Chapter 2- SEPT13
story- This movie continues from the events of Insidious.
+ Part 1 was great and the director is returning for this one too.James Wan tasted success with Conjuring ,and he seems to be in great form.
- sequels are always a dangerous territory,theres a huge chance that the story is subdued.
