Anticipation is building for TRON: Legacy, while kids are waiting impatiently for the new Yogi Bear movie. If that’s not your cup of tea, how about How Do You Know, the new comedy with Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon and Jack Nicholson. No matter what your favorites are, there’s something for everyone this Friday. So let’s take a look at this week’s movies.
Sam Flynn (Garrett Helund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the digital world of Tron where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey of escape across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
Hanna-Barbera’s beloved picnic-basket-stealing bear makes his big-screen debut in this live-action/animation mix children’s flick from Journey to the Center of the Earth director Eric Brevig. The tourists just aren’t flocking to Jellystone Park like they used to, and when the budget starts to get tight, Mayor Brown (Andrew Daly) brings down the axe. But while the mayor can certainly make a quick buck by selling the land, what about the families who like to spend their summers in the great outdoors? When Yogi (Dan Aykroyd) and Boo-Boo (Justin Timberlake) discover they’re about to become homeless, they realize that their only hope for keeping Jellystone open is to team up with their old enemy Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh) and wage wildlife warfare against greedy Mayor Brown.
