The Plot: An experimental government program sends soldier Colter Stevens (Gyllenhaal) back in time, where he wakes up in the body of a commuter who witnesses a train bombing.

Director: Tim Hill
Stars: Russell Brand, James Marsden, Elizabeth Perkins
The Plot: A slacker (Marsden) who accidentally hits the Easter Bunny (Brand) with his car is forced to care for his victim, who turns out to be the world's worst houseguest
Something about this movie seems odd, but not sure what.
DVD - Tron: Legacy - boxed set is MINE!
Director: Joe Wright
Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett, Eric Bana
The Plot: A 16-year-old (Ronan) who was raised by her father (Bana) is dispatched on a mission across Europe, tracked by a ruthless intelligence agent (Blanchett) and her operatives.

I confess – I dig these films!
Any look good to you?
The premise for Apollo 18 has potential, but as you say, a dearth of cast and info seems to spell "direct to DVD". Looking forward to Source Code.
Wow...with the exception of Tron and Fast Five,I'd have to say I agree with your take on all of these.
I can't wait for the king's speech! I missed it in the theatres and really want to see it!
Hop looks ridiculous.
the dvd choices rock... tron, yes!
pass on the films in the theaters.
though "hop" could be the hot dog winner, though i do not like russell brand... maybe hanna?
Hanna looks good to me b/c I love those kinds of stories!
"Fast Five" aside, I'd love to see all of the April releases (the theatrical ones), with "Source Code", "Hanna" and "Your Highness" being on the top of my must-see list.
Can't wait to get Harry Potter and Fast Five is at the top of my must see list!
I'm most excited about THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWNTREADER coming out on DVD. I didn't get a chance to see it when it was in theaters. :(
Hanna and The source code seem interesting.
Good review of the films and Yes I have seen the King's Speech.
Thanks for your visit and comment, It is very much appreciated.
I can't wait to watch Harry Potter again! April 15 can't get here soon enough :)
whoa! hanna sounds awesome!
I will be seeing Hanna and Your Highness. Might try to work in Fast Five too, as I <3 Vin Diesel and The Rock.
I want to see them all, but HP is on the top of the list :)
They're all on my list and I will use any excuse to see Vin and Paul. One day I shall see them together...naked. LOL! Kidding! Just making sure you're awake and know that I'm back! ;)
Hanna, yes. Source Code seems like a rip-off of a few other things, but I'll probably still DVD it. The others, no thanks...
Something about Russell Brand makes me want to go ew -but the bunny flick looks so sweet!!!
I'm looking at Jake Gyllenhaal film and salivating! Thanks for the info on these films! Take care
Vicki, I'm good!
Jeremy, I'm a theater junkie.
Nebular, as I stated, Fast Five is a guilty pleasure.
Emily, I really liked it!
Stephanie, thanks for validating my FF opinion.
Hannah, I am awake and glad you're back!
Summer, it does, so no high hopes.
Kitty, you're drooling on Charlie...
So far I've seen none of these but several do look pretty good.
I think "Source Code" looks interesting. "Hannah" looks too scary for me, although I think it sounds interesting, too.
King's Speech and Hanna most definitely. I'm a total movie addict. Also looking forward to Super 8.
Source Code and Hanna. And how could anyone not want to see Rio - it's got a toucan!
I still want to see The King's Speech, too.
Wish I had time for more movies, but baseball season starts for real this week!!!
Source Code sounds a lot like Denzel Washington's Deja Vu.
Charles, most haven't been released yet, so that's all right.
Elizabeth, Hanna is only PG13, so can't be too intense.
LG, me too!
Carol, it fits well for you!
Monticello, you are a dedicated fan.
Fast Five! I didn't know there was going to be another one of these. Yeah, I'm hooked, too. Must have something to do with Paul Walker.
Thanks for the good news, Alex! Hope you have a fantastic week.:)
Is Hop a horror movie? It looks really creepy.
Looking forward to seeing Harry Potter.
Your Highness looks like a see when its free movie.
Looks like it's all about Rio.
Your Highness is my looking forward to it movie for April. Rio looks cute too! And definitely need to get HP!
I looked for your movie post for this weekend, did you see anything? Was interested to know if you did! ;)
I want to see Rio and Hop- I think I will take my girls to see Hop for sure though- it looks entertaining.
The Code and Hanna, look good to me. I love adventure sorts. Have you seen Unstoppable? Oh my gosh, talk about the edge of your seat excitment!
I also have been wanting to see The King's Speach. Just haven't managed it so far.
Your Highness looks interesting. My guys want to see it. I'll watch it but if it gets too stupid I'll find something else to do.
I fell asleep during the first TRON. :) I want to see Source Code. Looks interesting.
This is an interesting list....
Is it weird that, of all the pictures included, I'm the most curious about Hop?
Thanks for the lineup. I'm running so behind with films; just saw The Blind Side over the weekend, and only b/c my mother in law gave me her copy. Perhaps I should get out more...she did also give me Secretariat, so have that to watch too. That's me, living life on the edge in KY...
I love action movies so all the assassin/code ones look great!
I KNOW---I've got to see King's Speech too. I went to an Oscar party and whenever the movie was mentioned, everyone in the room sighed. Except me, I thought about leaving right then and going to see the movie instead of watching the boring Oscars.
Other than Apollo 18, none of new releases tripped my trigger.
Waiting breathlessly for Tron and HP though. Hubba hubba.
I'm looking forward to Your Highness just because it reminds me of the Princess Bride.
The King's Speech is awesome.
I smiled when I saw Tron there. What about Sucker Punch? I can't wait to hear your review. I haven't seen it yet, the plot sounds Alice and Wonderlandish. Ugh...
♥.•*¨ Elizabeth ¨*•.♥
Cheeseboy, just might be!
Colene, spent weekend out of town with wife, so no movie.
Sia, saw it last fall!
Andrew, that is curious!
Karen, both good movies.
Elizabeth, no movie this weekend.
Fast Five sounds cool. I'll be avoiding Your Highness because the jokes are crass. I like the concept behind Source Code and of course I love almost any animated movie.
Source Code looks like the pick of the bunch.
Source Code does look good; I also want to see The King's Speech. Colin is a great actor! Hanna really looks scary! Hop looks odd...
Hope you had a happy weekend~
I'm digging on Hanna and Your Highness, Hop, too.
I'm mostly looking forward to Harry P - I don't remember why, but I didn't get to see it in theaters. Can't wait!
I'm going to take my daughter to see Hop. I am excited because james Marsden is in it and I LOVE me some James Marsden! I think your feeling about it is because the rabbit poops jellybeans.
Would love to see Hop and Hanna combined... Rabbit Slayer by Birth :)
Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow
Source Code is the one that intrigues me the most. Time travel and the previews look pretty good.
Tossing It Out
Twitter hashtag: #atozchallenge
I think the race movies are a guy thing but that's quite a cast. Will any of us in A-Z have time to watch movies?
Apollo 18 and Source Code will make my list. Maybe Hanna. Out on the rest.
Thanks for the reviews. I'm looking forward to seeing Fast Five with our two teenage boys. I'm also looking forward to visiting your blog during the A to Z Challenge.
Source Code has promise, but I just don't get Jake Gyllenhaal. Looks like a role anyone could play.
I'll take the kids to see Hop and Rio.
Still haven't seen King's Speech but everyone says its a great movie. It'll probably slip away and I'll have to wait until it comes out on DVD and I'll watch it with wifey for date night.
Ella, Hop does look odd...
Abby, that might be it!
Jules, you have the next big blockbuster!
Susan, I will make time.
Stephen, it'll be a rental for me as well.
Dawn Treader and Harry are both coming home with me!!!
As for going to see any, my hubby wants to see Source Code. It does look interesting, as does Hannah.
Hop will either be cute and funny, or really stupid, don't you think?
I didn't see HP, or The Dawn Treader--so I'm definitely looking forward to those. Source Code sounds interesting.
I really meant to see "King's Speech" in theaters, but never got around to do it. So I was delighted when it was one of the choices on my recent flight from Asia. The problem was I was so exhausted I fell asleep! I still think it looked like a good movie, though, so I'd like to see it - but not on a plane...
I'm also curious about the Easter Bunny one. I have a weird feeling it might be quite similar to "Alvin and the Chipmunks", though...
Pretty lukewarm on these kid ones... the thriller and sci-fi sets look good though... I am waiting for Harry Potter, i think--I am somehow convinced I will get the boxed set for Christmas with BOTH parts... (even if it has to come from Santa)
Thanks for the list. It troubles me that Apollo 18 is being 'rushed' and not much anticipated from it. Too bad, it comes from a fine line of predecessor related shows.
Source Code, Hanna, Your Highness look good.
Hop doesn't. Or the other Russell Brand sure-fire dud Arthur. That will be awful.
'Your Highness' looks like I would dig it the most.
I loved the heartwarming story of the King's Speech. Made me laugh and made me cry.
I'll probably end up renting Source Code eventually.
But now that I know Saorise Ronan is in Hanna, that might have just bumped to the top of my list.
Words, I agree on Hop.
Cruella, that's not good!
Hart, have you been good???
Ty, the remake does look awful.
Thanks. You always come up with some I've never heard of. Sometimes I wonder which signals a bad movie - over promotion or no promotion at all.
Oh, I want to see Source Code and Hanna! Hop looks cute, but how odd that Russel Brand is the voice of the bunny.
I still haven't gotten to see Paul yet. So many movies but the price, yow. We usually go on the cheap night, or wait for Netlix, the Blue Box or the Red Box.
Sounds like some good movies. Maybe not great movies, except a couple out on DVD, but worth watching. I heard about Apollo 18 a while back, it will be interesting to see if it's any good or not.
Helen, I can think of a lot of bad movies that were over-promoted.
Carolina, Hop just looks odd.
Tony, I'm not holding my breath on that one.
Source Code, Apollo 18 and Your Highness are on my to watch list. I'd recommend Limitless too - it's a damn fine movie :) Apollo 18 looks to be pretty bad (but hopefully in a good way) and Your Highness has a certain Miss Portman in it, so it's gonna be awesome no matter what ;)
I just saw the previews for Hannah last night and "whoa! what is this?" looks awesome!
Your Highness is a must. James Franco, dude.
Jamie, you're smitten with Portman, aren't you?
Oh man! I have to find the time to watch all these movies! But with the A-Z challenge coming up, I might just end up watching them on dvd.
Anything Saoirse Ronan does is amazing. She's a wonderful, natural actor, at such a young age.
