PopWatch Previewer: 'Angels & Demons,' 'Gran Torino,' and more!
Angels & Demons
Plot: Tom Hanks is back to uncover even more quasi-biblical secrets using only his smarts and weirdly lush mane.
Looks like: When Gargoyles Attack
Verdict: Something about the Pope, maybe? Or statues? Or the mysterious “Illuminati”? We’ll have to wait for the movie to find out! Or, I guess, read the book, but who has time for that?
Plot: A crusty old man (Clint Eastwood) gets on the bad side of the Chinese mob when he protects a neighbor from an assault.
Looks like: Grumpy Old Men with Guns
Verdict: Another feel-good flick from the guy who brought us Million Dollar Baby and Changeling.
Plot: An Indian teen (Dev Patel) goes on his country’s version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire to win the heart of a girl.
Looks like: The Namesake meets Quiz Show
Verdict: You don’t get much more than pretty pictures from this trailer, but the latest from Trainspottingdirector Danny Boyle is a festival fave with a surprising amount ofOscar Buzz. Bonus points for 1.) The awesome title, and 2.) Casting Skins’ Patel in the lead.
So, PopWatchers, which of these three movies are you most likely to see (if any)? Weigh in below on our message board!
