This is going to end with a small rant so be forwarned. With only one nationwide release this week, I don’t have much to report, but when has that ever stopped me from finding something interesting to post.
Yesterday Was A Lie (LA)
Drama, Mystery, Romance, Sci-Fi (PG)
(From Comingsoon.net) Hoyle — a girl with a sharp mind and a weakness for bourbon — is investigating introverted artist/archaeologist John Dudas. But her work takes an unforeseen twist as she begins to experience events around her in a mysterious, disjointed manner. With the assistance of her loyal partner and a cute young lounge singer, Hoyle uncovers a plot to unravel earth-shattering cosmological secrets, smuggled out of 1930s Germany by a Nazi defector. But when Hoyle’s deeper relationship with Dudas is revealed, she learns that the most potent forces of all — human love, human pain — cannot be grasped by science alone.
The Lovely Bones (Limited)
(From Comingsoon.net) Based on the critically acclaimed best-selling novel by Alice Sebold, and directed by Oscar® winner Peter Jackson from a screenplay by Jackson & Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyens, “The Lovely Bones” centers on a young girl who has been murdered and watches over her family – and her killer – from heaven. She must weigh her desire for vengeance against her desire for her family to heal. Oscar® nominee Mark Wahlberg and Oscar® winners Rachel Weisz and Susan Sarandon star along with Stanley Tucci, Michael Imperioli and Oscar® nominee Saoirse Ronan.
The Princess & The Frog (Nationwide)
Adventure, Animation, Family, Comedy, Musical (G)
(From Comingsoon.net) Walt Disney Animation Studios presents the musical “The Princess and the Frog,” an animated comedy set in the great city of New Orleans. From the creators of “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin” comes a modern twist on a classic tale, featuring a beautiful girl named Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss that leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana. “The Princess and the Frog” marks the return to hand-drawn animation from the revered team of John Musker and Ron Clements, with music by Oscar®-winning composer Randy Newman (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Cars,” “Toy Story”)
Yay for The Princess & The Frog finally making it to nationwide release. Speaking of this whole nationwide versus limited release… I can’t wait until The Lovely Bones get’s a nationwide release, but here we are… watching a limited released then expanded released before they get off their lazy butts and release it nationwide. I mean why not just start with an expanded or limited and then move to nationwide. Are you guys afraid it’s going to do bad and you can pull it before nationwide? Well it won’t. So just release it already. (end rant here)
Are you as annoyed with me about all these limited releases? Are you lucky enough to live in a limited release area?
