Jason (Derek Mears) prepares to slice and dice some fresh victims in New Line Cinema’s and Paramount Pictures’ horror film “Friday the 13th,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.
PINELLAS COUNTY - A number of new movie releases will hit theaters Feb. 13, including the following:
“Confessions of a Shopaholic” - In the glamorous world of New York City, Rebecca Bloomwood is a fun-loving girl who is really good at shopping - a little too good, perhaps.
She dreams of working for her favorite fashion magazine, but can’t quite get her foot in the door - until, ironically, she snags a job as a columnist for a financial magazine published by the same company. As her dreams are finally coming true, she goes to ever more hilarious and extreme efforts to keep her past from ruining her future.
Isla Fisher stars in the film from blockbuster producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director P.J. Hogan. The screenplay by Tracey Jackson and Tim Firth and Kayla Alpert is based on the books “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and “Shopaholic Takes Manhattan” by Sophie Kinsella. Hugh Dancy stars as Rebecca’s editor and object of her growing affections. Joan Cusack and John Goodman portray the fashionista’s thrifty middle-class parents. Rated PG.
“Friday the 13th” - Searching for his missing sister, Clay Miller (Jared Padalecki) heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake, where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins behind moss-covered trees.
And that's not the only thing lying in wait under the brush.
Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has in the search for his missing sister, Whitney (Amanda Righetti), with the help of Jenna (Danielle Panabaker), a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend.
Little do they know, they've entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history - the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake, armed with a razor-sharp machete: Jason Voorhees.
“Friday the 13th”is directed by Marcus Nispel and stars Jared Padalecki, Danielle Panabaker, Aaron Yoo, Amanda Righetti, Travis Van Winkle and Derek Mears as Jason.
The movie is produced by Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, who together produced “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “The Amityville Horror” and original “Friday the 13th” producer/director Sean Cunningham. Rated R.
“The International” - In “The International,” a gripping thriller, Interpol Agent Louis Salinger (Clive Owen) and Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Eleanor Whitman (Naomi Watts) are determined to bring to justice one of the world’s most powerful banks.
Uncovering myriad and reprehensible illegal activities, Salinger and Whitman follow the money from Berlin to Milan to New York to Istanbul. Finding themselves in a high-stakes chase across the globe, their relentless tenacity puts their own lives at risk as their targets will stop at nothing - even murder - to continue financing terror and war.
