2. Precious Cargo
In theaters: April 20, 2016
“Sometimes things just don’t work out.”Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for the action-packed heist thriller Precious Cargo, directed by Max Adams, starring Bruce Willis as the villain. He plays a crime boss who hires a thief but then double crosses him and then gets tangled up in a big showdown. There’s lots of action, it looks pretty good if you just want to see some solid action, but I’m not sure about the rest of it. The full cast includes Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Claire Forlani, John Brotherton, Lydia Hull, Daniel Bernhardt, Ashley Kirk and Nick Loeb. I hope this is actually as fun as the trailer makes it look.
1. Mother’s Day
In theaters: May 4, 2016
Mother’s Day is the latest star studded ensemble comedy from director Garry Marshall (“Pretty Woman,” “Valentine’s Day”). Bringing together Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Julia Roberts along with Jason Sudeikis, it’s a celebration of mothers everywhere. This big-hearted comedy invites us all to enjoy the laughter, tears and love as three generations come together in the week leading up to Mother’s Day.
