‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ and ‘The Call’ Open This Weekend in Theaters
Two new movies are opening this St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Whether you hang out at home on the couch or you venture to the theater, you’ll find some good flicks to entertain you.
“The Call” (R)
Halle Berry plays a 911 operator trying to help a teenage girl who’s been abducted by a serial killer. She’s played by 16-year-old Abigail Breslin. Once, during a similar call, Halle’s character made the mistake of calling the victim back, accidentally revealing her hiding spot to the killer, and costing the girl her life. So when she speaks to the killer THIS time, and realizes it’s the same guy, she leaves the safety of the dispatch office to try to rescue the girl herself.
Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi are best friends who’ve performed together as a Las Vegas magic duo for years, but who’ve secretly grown to despise each other. As their act grows stale and a new street magician’s stunts grown more outrageous, Burt has to rediscover his love for magic or quit the business.
Jim Carrey plays their number one rival, Olivia Wilde plays Burt’s hot assistant and Alan Arkin is the guy who inspired Burt to take up magic in the first place. David Copperfield was a special consultant for the film and also appears in it.
New movies on DVD this week:
The Oscar winning, “Life of Pi” and the animated “Rise of the Guardians” starring the voices of Alec Baldwin, Chris Pine and Hugh Jackman.
