Box Office Battlefield: ‘Bruno’ and ‘I Love You Beth Cooper’

battle field

I Love You, Beth Cooper (Hayden Panettiere, Paul Rust) Teenage high school comedy about the geeky valedictorian, Denis Cooverman, admitting his love to the high school hottie crush, Beth Cooper, during his graduation speech. This creates an array of  events that end up being the wildest night of his life. Will he get the cheerleader or just get his ass beat buy her older boyfriend? This looks like a funny movie and is directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire and Harry Potter 1 & 2). I’d suggest go see it with a date or something. It’s a nice teen romantic comedy.

Brüno (Sacha Baron Cohen) A more than flaming Austrian goes on the hunt around the world creating havoc to find the latest fashion trends. From going on talk shows, adopting a black child, camping, and joining the army, Brüno will end up seeing a lot of lawsuits after the movie comes out most likely. This is the 3rd film under Mr. Cohen’s belt for his own created characters. It is really short, 83 minutes, and apparently shortened due to the death of Michael Jackson; I heard 70 minutes. It will be a good tear inducing laugh your ass of comedy from what it seems.

Blood: The Last Vampire (Gianna Jun, Allison Miller) I don’t know much about this film, but apparently it is about a vampire girl named Saya who is part of covert government agency that hunts and destroys demons in a post-WWII Japan, is inserted in a military school to discover which one of her classmates is a demon is disguise. I think this is a creation from an anime turned manga and now a live action film. I can’t really say more than that.
