Unorthodox Jukebox, Bruno Mars
He may not be catching grenades in this album, but it doesn’t mean Bruno Mars isn’t one of the hottest and most successful Filipino-Americans to break out in the music scene. With 10 new songs and a ferocious gorilla (also the name of one of his new songs) on the cover, this album looks to be an awesome sophomore addition to Mars’ growing career.
The Bourne Legacy, Universal
The fourth edition in the Bourne film series, Legacy follows another member of the government’s espionage program, Operation Treadstone. Jeremy Renner, who’s portrayed other action heroes in the latest Mission Impossible and Avengers films, takes over the leading role from Matt Damon.
From Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, John (Marky Mark Walberg) wishes his teddy bear was real, and his wish is granted. Now, as John grows older, the foul-mouthed, pot-smoking Ted must come to terms with his friend’s growing relationship with Lori (Mila Kunis).
