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.
Opening in theatres this week, two Toronto International Film Festival picks make their debut; the teen-horror film Jennifer’s Body, and Steven Soderbergh‘s The Informant! Also new to theatres, Bill Hader stars in the animated tale Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, and Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston look for romance in Love Happens.
