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.
Two amazing, Oscar-nominated dramas make their debut on DVD this week: The Wrestler, featuring Mickey Rourke as an aging, down-on-his-luck star of the ring; and Ron Howard‘s film adaptation of the stage hit, Frost/Nixon. Also out this week, the biopic Notorious, Toronto Stories, Swing Vote, Smart People, and Into the Blue 2: The Reef.
On screen this week, the hit play Frost/Nixon takes a look back at the fateful interview between David Frost and Richard Nixon, while the Punisher gets another shot at success in Punisher: War Zone. Also opening this week, the surreal drama Synecdoche, New York, and JCVD.
