Weekend Movie Update – Aug. 16, 2013: ‘Kick-Ass’ ‘Jobs’
It’s another crowded weekend at theaters, with Ashton Kutcher bringing Jobs to life, as Oprah gives a nod to The Butler, and there’s plenty of Kick-Ass action and Paranoia to go around, while The Lone Ranger rides into The Pioneer.
Here’s your Outer Banks Movie Update for the weekend of August 16, 2013!
Johnny Depp (Dark Shadows) is Tonto and Armie Hammer (The Social Network) is the titular hero in Disney’s The Lone Ranger (rated PG13), from the director of the original Pirates of the Caribbean, premiering this Friday at the historic Pioneer Theatre in Manteo for a one week run.
In the film, Tonto recounts the origin of the mysterious Lone Ranger, as the legend (and possibly a new franchise) of this American icon begins.

If you enjoyed the original Kick-Ass (2010), about a group of amateur superheroes who have no actual super powers, you have probably already purchased your ticket for the sequel Kick-Ass 2 (rated R), starting tomorrow (Thursday) with 8pm and 10pm preview screenings and opening Friday at R/C KDH Movies 10 in Kill Devil Hills.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Godzilla), Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie), and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad) return from the first film and are joined by Jim Carrey (Dumb and Dumber) this time around for more extreme comedic violence.
