Hot August Movies
Enter the final chapter in our very own trilogy, the SheKnows Summer Movie Preview. In this third installment, SheKnows has gone over 30 films opening in theaters during the final four weeks of the summer blockbuster season.
August, SheKnows Entertainment is happy to report, is a month of joy for those seeking to enjoy their movies where everything does not explode! For those of you who still enjoy an action hero or heroine, they still permeate August's movie screens.
Although it is competing with a Mummy movie, look for "Swing Vote" to swing some audiences into theaters. This likely won't be a landslide, but Costner's everyman who decides the country's future, has as much charm as any leading man this summer.
Ben Kingsley also stars as a Russian man with one thing on his mind. Given Kingsley's bad guy cinematic resume, the end of "Transsiberian" cannot end to well for any of the characters riding that train.
Brendan Fraser returns for the franchise that has made over $500 million globally.
The story...does it really matter? It's a thrill ride.
Martial arts wizard Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon") join the cast as the bad guy and girl respectively who try to ruin Brendan and Maria's day. From the previews, these two do a pretty solid job.
Leslie Bibb and Vinnie Jones from "Snatch" star and it is none too soon for that man to lead a film. Jones is heavy on the accent and is an actor who pushes his throttle every time he's inhabits a role.
