DVD Tuesday: ‘Final Destination’ and ‘9’

Happy New Year, everyone. The holidays are safely behind us now, and the epic pile of new releases that came out at the end of 2009 is slowly starting to dwindle. There are a few notable new films on DVD and Blu-ray though, including the wonderfully silly, The Final Destination, the animated sci-fi adventure, 9, not to mention the campy Jennifer’s Body, and the animated movie, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs.

‘Creation’ will open 2009 TIFF

Early this week the Toronto International Film Festival announced details for some of this year’s gala and special presentations that will appear at the annual event in September. During the press conference, TIFF CEO and director Piers Handling, and festival co-director Cameron Bailey also revealed details for the opening night film, which ended up being a big surprise for long-time festival fans.
