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.
New arrivals on DVD and Blu-ray for February 2 include the horror comedy Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg; the drama, Amelia, with Hilary Swank and Richard Gere; plus the romantic drama Love Happens.
New this week at a theatre near you, Hilary Swank is the one-and-only Amelia Earhart in the drama, Amelia; in the animated adventure Astro Boy, Freddie Highmore voices a young, robotic hero as he tries to understand what role he has in the world; John C. Reilly stars as a vampire in Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, the latest Saw movie debuts, and a look ahead at Michael Jackson – This Is It.
There is at least one common thread shared by the major films coming out this week, and that’s the chilly reception they all received from the critics. From Eagle Eye, Nights In Rodanthe, and Choke, to Miracle At St. Anna, and The Lucky Ones, the consensus this week seems to be a negative one.
