Continuing last week’s void of new arrivals, this is yet another slow week for DVD and Blu-ray releases. Only two new arrivals land on home video today: Seth Rogen and Jay Chou star in the action-comedy, The Green Hornet; plus Vince Vaughn and Kevin James try to laugh it up in the weak Ron Howard comedy, The Dilemma.
This is another dismal winter weekend for movie buffs as only two new films open up in theatres. Opening this week, Seth Rogen and Jay Chou star in the action-comedy, The Green Hornet; plus Vince Vaughn and Kevin James try to laugh it up in the weak Ron Howard comedy, The Dilemma.
New this week on home video: Timothy Olyphant tries to survive a town of infected killers in The Crazies; John Cusack goes on a wild ride through the eighties in Hot Tub Time Machine; Paul Bettany plays Charles Darwin in the drama, Creation; and a look at Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
Paul Bettany stars in not one but two new films opening in theatres this week, including the drama Creation, about the life of a young Charles Darwin, and the horrific action thriller, Legion. Other new arrivals include Extraordinary Measures with Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser, plus the sugary-sweet comedy, The Tooth Fairy starring Dwayne Johnson.
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.
Fresh this week on Blu-ray and DVD, Neill Blomkamp‘s District 9 takes sci-fi to a whole new level; Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt play hopelessly mismatched lovers in (500) Days of Summer; plus a look at the animated action film, 9.
- Toronto International Film Festival
On Thursday, September 10 director Jon Amiel‘s film Creation, about the life of Charles Darwin, opened the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival with a gala red carpet event at Roy Thomson Hall. On hand to walk the carpet were stars Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany, not to mention the great-great-grandson of Darwin, Randal Keynes.
This will be a quick update, but I just wanted to post some info about my night so far. Yes, the fun has begun and I’m just in-between my gigs for the first night of the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
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.
