011312: Opening This Weekend

Minimal New Movies On The Big Screen

When it comes to new movies for this weekend – there are three hitting the big screen – but they’re really not opening in wide release and one is Disney trying to jump onto the 3D money-grabbing-making-machine again. But lets all remember we are in the Award Show season which means Hollywood is very reluctant to release anything that might be remotely considered a box office smash for fear of losing it in the noise.

New On The Big Screen This Weekend

Contraband – Rated R on 2,863 screens
Mark Wahlberg is an ex-criminal who resumes his life as a smuggler after his brother-in-law messes up a drug deal for his boss. Kate Beckinsale, Ben Foster and Giovanni Ribisi also star.

Joyful Noise – PG-13 on 2,735 screens
Queen Latifah and country music legend Dolly Parton play two very different leaders of a small-town choir in Georgia that enters a national competition. Nickelodeon actress Keke Palmer also stars.

Beauty and the Beast – Rated G on 2,625 screens
The animated Disney classic gets the 3D treatment for a limited run in theaters.

Enjoy the show!
