What Would Vladimir Putin Say: This week’s movie releases

Given the recent conflict in Ukraine, Vox will be quoting Russia’s enigmatic and typically shirtless leader.

300: Rise of an Empire

How do you make a sequel for a movie where 95 percent of the cast dies at the end? Vox has no idea, but if you’re into purple blood, body piercings, and elephants – go see it and let her know.

Putin says: “Russia cannot ignore calls for help and it acts accordingly, in full compliance with international law.”


An unknown murderer on a plane at 40,000 feet up, killing every 20 minutes. Who will save the day? He’s no Samuel L. Jackson, but Liam Neeson will have to do.

Putin says: “There is no such thing as a former KGB man.”

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

The words “ripped a hole in the time-space continuum” makes any Dr. Who fan smile. Hearing these words in the Mr. Peabody trailer, Vox (yes, a Dr. Who fan) decided she wanted to see this one – even though a talking dog is the main character.

Putin says: “Ukraine needs elections, but you can’t have elections because there is already a president. And no elections will be valid given that there is terrorism in the streets of Ukraine. And how are you going to let just anyone run for president? What if some nationalist punk just pops out like a jack-in-the-box?”
