VIDEO: Your weekend movies... eejits, Almadóvar and Colin Farrell

Cinema trip this weekend? brings you snippets from new releases to help you decide where to put your money…

WHICH NEW MOVIE release is worth the price of a cinema ticket this weekend?

We’re here to help you decide just that, with these trailers.

21 And Over


For fans of: Young folk, drinking, dead people, eejits

Avoid if: You’re under 21, you hate eejits

Too fecking eejits go to visit their friend Jeff Chang, who is under the thumb of his father. But he’s about to turn 21, and in the USA that means one thing: drinking so much you can’t remember your own name. But as expected, the night goes arseways, when Chang drinks enough alcohol to poison a small animal. Chaos predictably ensues.

I’m So Excited


For fans of: Psychic women, entertaining flights

Avoid if: You hate flying

Good Ol’ Pedro Almadóvar is back, so you know we can expect intriguing characters, frivolity, hot Spanish people and a few sexual liaisons. Wonderful. This is almost entirely set on a plane – but we appreciate the glimpse of Almadóvar favourite Penelope Cruz – and focuses on a flight that’s in danger thanks to a technical failure. Will they survive?

Dead Man Down


For fans of: Colin, Colin Farrell

Avoid if: You prefer sensitive types

COLIN FARRELL! SCREAM! Sorry, just doing the OMG-it’s-Irish-Hollywood-hunk-Colin-Farrell-scream there. If you tired of his sensitive, humorous persona in Seven Psychopaths, he’s here in full action mode (and there’s a psycho in the form of Terence Howard’s character). Think big explosions, blood-soaked clothes, and at least one dead man down.
