Opening This Weekend: Speed Racer, What Happens in Vegas

by at . Comments

Only two major movies are opening this weekend; one offers high-tech fun for kids, the other focuses on romance and comedy for adults.

Here's a closer look at them...

Speed Racer
Stars: Emile Hirsch, Matthew Fox, Christina Ricci
Quick synopsis: Based on the classic 1960's Japanese animated series, follows the aspirations of a young race car driver as he attempts to obtain glory, with the help of his family.
Prediction: Not great timing here, as Iron Man will still dominate the box office, especially when it comes those seeking special effects.

What Happens in Vegas
Stars: Ashton Kutcher, Cameron Diaz
Quick synopsis: Two hot singles meet, get married, win money... and then try to get divorced.
Prediction: Looks like a fun romantic comedy, but expect a distant third place finish after Iron Man and Speed Racer.
