Looking at the Weekend: Aug. 10-12, 2012

Whether a new lead can keep the franchise afloat remains to be seen. As the Bond series can tell you, changing out leads can have good and bad consequences. We'll see if Jeremy Renner can have the same success that Daniel Craig did and not the same lack of success Timothy Dalton did.

Consensus

Below is a list of what we have come to a general consensus on. The number in parens represents the percentage of our contributors who agree with the statement.

The Bourne Legacy: The concern is that Jeremy Renner (or at least the film's producers, writers and director) may not be up to continuing the Bourne legacy.
The Campaign: More limp comedy.
Hope Springs: It could be good, it could be bad, but trailers can be deceiving.
Nitro Circus the Movie 3D: There is no point.
2 Days in New York: It's an unassuming indie comedy that isn't everyone's style.

I'd like to see what Renner can do with the role, but I'm still a bit leery.

Thoughts

The franchise that keeps going and going...not a bad way to end the summer.

There aren't many actors I consider less funny than these guys.

Another silly ass comedy I can do without.

It looks like it could be mildly amusing, but it's also something I have no problem waiting to see on DVD or the inevitable Streep-touting screener.

Thoughts

Could bring Streep yet another Oscar nomination.

I thought Jackass was a stupid idea...at least that had a popular series to justify. Trying to be like Jackass is a loser in my book.

Thoughts

MTV-inspired nonsnse I can live without.

I respect the makers, but the film doesn't quite look like my cuppa tea.

Thoughts

Looks like a minor comedy, but one that might bring a few chuckles.
