Hitting the Big Screen

This fall season there are a few flicks hitting the big screen that box office officials say could be a big hit.

Back in 1984 Kevin Bacon stole the hearts of young ladies across the country when he hit the big screen as a city boy who moved to a small town in the hit movie Footloose.

But now in 2011, the movie is back with a whole new look. Professional dancer and actor Kenny Wormald, dancer and singer Julianne Hough and actor Dennis Quaid round out the cast for a remake of the original hit.

“You have to really watch out for those because they’re kind of hit and miss,” said Ted Bulthaup, Owner of Hollywood Palms. “Sometimes they’re really really good and sometimes they’re really really bad. But from what I saw of it, I’m really expecting quite a bit from it.”

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and Fozzie Bear are back for the first time in years. The Muppets first came out in the 1950’s, but they are back on the big screen for a brand new movie simply titled: The Muppets.

“You wonder a little bit about what that key audience is going to be,” said Bulthaup. “Kids don’t quite know them really, except maybe Elmo, but all the parents do. So I think they’ll be coming out in pretty big numbers.”

And the love triangle between Edward, Bella and Jacob continues when the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One hits theaters. In the second to last movie Edward and Bella tie the knot, paving the way for the series’ big ending in 2012.

“Vampires have always had that angle to them,” said Bulthaup. “I mean how many vampire movies have there been? This has a romantic twist to it. Some of the older vampire movies really had that sexual undertone. I think that really hooks it together.”

And finally, two sleeper movies coming out this fall are Puss in Boots, a spin-off of the Shrek franchise and Happy Feet 2. Both are cartoons geared to the younger crowd.
