Matt Damon’s “Hereafter” Is Up Against “Paranormal Activity 2″
#1.) “Paranormal Activity 2″ (R)
It turns out that the sequel to last year’s surprise hit is actually a prequel. This time the action takes place at the home of Katie’s sister and her unsuspecting husband. And since it’s a prequel, Katie’s back too.
The movie opens a few months before the events of the first “Paranormal Activity”, but it eventually catches up to the present. Meaning fans of the first film will also get a little more insight into what happened after the first movie ended.
#2.) “Hereafter” (PG-13)
Clint Eastwood’s new movie has Matt Damon as a reluctant psychic trying to lead a normal life, despite being able to talk to the dead. Comedian Jay Mohr plays his older brother and Bryce Dallas Howard plays a woman that Matt Damon is dating.
There’s also a French chick who survives a tsunami, and a British boy whose twin dies in a car crash. The storylines eventually come together, presumably with Matt Damon embracing his gift and bringing everyone inner peace. Or something.
