A comedy set in Boise, a Wolverine sequel, and more hit theaters this week.
The To Do List - CBS Films - Rated R
Featuring an all-star comedy cast including Aubrey Plaza, Bill Hader, Rachel Bilson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Andy Samberg, R rated The To Do List is a comedy, loosely inspired by the real-life adventures of first-time writer/director and former Boise resident and Borah High grad Maggie Carey. Set in Boise in 1993, valedictorian Brandy Klark wants to shed her uptight image before college, so she assembles a to do list of all the “activities” she missed out on in high school. Quickly realizing that she's way out of her depth, Brandy solicits her best friends, older sister and burnt-out boss for their help and advice. If the group is going to complete the list by September they'll need plenty of imagination and very open minds.
The Wolverine - 20th Century Fox - Rated PG-13
The Wolverine takes Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality.
