Last week, leading in to the massive debut of Marvel's Iron Man 3 in North America, actor Don Cheadle made one of his near-final stops on the film's worldwide publicity tour to chat with press in Toronto, and I was lucky enough to ask him a few questions about his return as Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes.
Arriving on DVD and Blu-ray this week: Noomi Rapace stars with Michael Nyqvist in the Scandinavian thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; Richard Gere fights crime in Brooklyn's Finest; and Colin Firth deals with loss and love in A Single Man.
Opening in a theatre near you this weekend, Tim Burton directs the trippy remake of Disney's Alice In Wonderland; and a look at Antoine Fuqua's crime drama, Brooklyn's Finest.
With the Toronto International Film Festival just a week away, film distributors in North America are celebrating the near arrival of all those exceptional films by deluging theatres with all the bad movies left over from the summer. Included in that pack of films is Vin Diesel's Babylon A.D., the spoof Disaster Movie, and the teen romp comedy College. Standing out from the crowd, with a respectable number of positive reviews, is the thriller Traitor, starring Don Cheadle.
