SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Can’t figure what new movie to watch this weekend? Here are some of the latest movie releases out this week. We’ll help you find the movie you’re looking for:
This week in Bay Area movie theaters, Marvel Studios next installment in 2011’s run of superhero movies is “Captain America: The First Avenger”. Very familiar to the superhero movie, Chris Evans, who previously played “The Human Torch” in Marvel Studios, “Fantastic Four” movies, portrays World War II soldier, Steve Rogers who’s been recruited to undergo an experimental procedure to create physically and mentally enhanced fighters or “super soldiers” to defeat the Nazis and the force of evil. In doing so, meager Steve Rogers is transformed into the mighty Captain America.
Also in theaters this week, Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis star in the “un-romantic comedy”, “Friends With Benefits”. Two friends who decide to give up on relationships and move forward with their off-centered, purely sexual arrangement. The formula may seem familiar ala “Black Swan” co-star Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher’s “No Strings Attached”. The differences…You might want to see the film to decide.
