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.
This week’s new arrivals on DVD and Blu-ray include David Fincher’s The Social Network, an offline drama about the makings of an online giant; the horror-comedy Piranha, starring Elisabeth Shue, Jerry O’Connell, and Adam Scott; and the animated comedy Alpha And Omega.
Happy New Year, movie lovers, and welcome to what amounts to two meager offerings for the start of this cold January. Opening this weekend is the Nicolas Cage supernatural thriller, Season Of The Witch, which co-stars Ron Perlman, and the musical drama Country Strong, with Garrett Hedlund and Gwyneth Paltrow.
