It is an odd thing but when actors are playing superheroes they often don’t have vast amounts of success outside that franchise. It’s true of Chris Evans, who’s massively popular as Captain America, but his other films haven’t made much of an impact on the box office (his recent Playing It Cool didn’t even get a UK cinema release).
It’s a shame as he certainly has charm on screen.
Before We Go may not be likely to make mountains of cash, but it does look like it may be a rather charming romance with Evans starring alongside Alice Eve. And it will also act as a showcase for Evans directorial skills, as it’s his debut behind the camera.
Chris plays a man who helps out after Eve’s purse is stolen, which ‘sparks a life-changing, nighttime sojourn through New York City.’
Before We Go will be on VOD in the US from July 21st and in cinemas September 4th. No UK date is currently set. [Read more…]
