VIDEO: Your weekend movies… Superman and Tina Fey

Cinema trip this weekend? TheJournal.ie 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.

Man of Steel


For fans of: Superman, Kevin Costner, superheroes

Avoid if: You’re more a fan of Batman

Here we are: The long-awaited Superman movie, starring UK actor Henry Cavill. We’ll get to find out what brought the hero to earth as a baby, and how he coped once he realised he had super-human powers. If there’s one word to describe this movie, it is, naturally, “epic”.

Dark and foreboding, the trailer ramps up the anticipation to just the right degree. Amy Adams plays Lois Lane – and it looks like she isn’t the typical damsel in distress. Hurrah!

  • RottenTomatoes.com critics rating: 70 per cent. Audience rating: 97 per cent want to see



For fans of: TINA FEY, Princess Bride, funny women

Avoid if: You don’t like things a bit too sugary-sweet

Let’s get this out of the way first: We are BIG fans of Tina Fey. That doesn’t mean we think everything she does is amazing, but this love sustains us through anything. The plot of Admission is both heartwarming and utterly unbelievable, but it has Paul Rudd and Wallace Shawn from the Princess Bride in it too, so we might take a trip to see it just for them.

Summer in February


For fans of: Art, bohemia, Downton Abbey

Avoid if: You prefer more adventurous romances

Based on a book of the same name, this is one for fans of Downton Abbey. Set 100 years ago in Cornwall, just before the first World War, it brings us the story of Florence (Emily Browning), who finds herself caught between two men.

Will she stay with adulterous artist AJ (Dominic Cooper) or the sensitive Gilbert (Dan Stevens)? This looks like a delicate watch alright.
