New Movies: ‘The Heat,’ ‘White House Down’
We have another comedy/action pairing of flicks hitting theaters this weekend. The first is a reunion of sorts between the director and co-star of the summer 2011 hit ‘Bridesmaids,’ and the second should sound oddly familiar to anyone who caught ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ back in March.
This buddy-cop comedy with a female twist features a hard-nosed, by-the-book FBI agent teaming with a vulgar, instinct-oriented loose cannon from the Boston P.D. to take down a drug kingpin.
Directed by Paul Feig
Starring Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, Demián Bichir, Marlon Wayans
‘White House Down’
When a huge explosion rocks the White House, one daring cop must fight his way through the rubble and help save the president—and his own daughter—from the mysterious attackers.
Directed by Roland Emmerich
Starring Jamie Foxx, Channing Tatum, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Richard Jenkins
