The Northern Lights Weekly Film Round Up
Dr Frankenstein’s monstrous creation is called Adam, played by Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Night, Olympus Has Fallen) who premiers a rather different physical look in this highly anticipated sci-fi fantasy film. Two hundred years after being created, Adam still walks the Earth, but when he finds himself caught in a centuries-old war between two immortal clans, Adam discovers the key that could destroy human kind. There are appearances from Bill Nighy (Hot Fuzz, Love Actually), Australian actress, Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter, Chuck) and Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers) among many other well regarded actors.
Directed by Peter Berg, this action film is set to do well in the box office. It sees Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster return to our screens as part of a Navy SEALs team on a covert mission sent to capture or kill notorious al Qaeda leader Ahmed Shahd. Together, they face an ambush in the mountains of Afghanistan and as they confront unthinkable odds, the four men stay in the fight until the finish. Based on The New York Times best-selling story, Lone Survivor tells the tale of what could be described as one of the most valiant efforts in modern warfare.
Out Of The Furnace
Rodney Baze, played by Casey Affleck, returns home after serving his time in Afghanistan only to disappear after becoming involved in one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast. His brother, Russell Baze played by Christian Bale, works full time at the local steel mill during the day and takes care of his terminally ill father by night but instead decides to leave it all behind and take the law into his own hands after the Police fail to crack the case, putting his life on the line in order to seek justice for his brother.
That Awkward Moment
Zac Efron explodes onto our screens playing, Jason, a young man who prides himself on his lack of monogamous relationships. The film watches three best friends, Jason (Efron), Daniel (Miles Teller) and Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) try to remain single for as long as possible. Their plan doesn’t work though as they each secretly fall in love and reach that pivotal point in every relationship where you find out where it is going, while still attempting to appear as bachelors.
