New releases in theatres this weekend: Hugh Jackman shows off his parenting and boxing skills opposite his young co-star Dakota Goyo in Real Steel; and George Clooney and Ryan Gosling star in the intense political drama, The Ides Of March.
Although I hate to say it, fall must be around the corner since both of the major releases this week are horror films intent on drawing in audiences who are done with summer blockbusters and want to be scared as the temperature dips and kids go back to school. The latest in theatres includes the mockumentary horror film, Apollo 18, about two astronauts who may not survive their trip to the moon, and the creature feature, Shark Night, following a group of young friends who may not survive their cabin adventure thanks to a salt-water lake filled with sharks.
