New Movie Releases for 11/11/05: Featuring Zathura

This week feels like the lull before the storm. A storm called Potter, that is. Not much in the way of new releases. So let's see what we do have, shall we?

Derailed. This is a new thriller starring Jennifer Aniston and Clive Owen. I don't know anything about the plot, but the trailers make it look rather exciting. It will be interesting to see if Aniston's feature career will take off.

Zathura. Also known as Jumanji II: Space Game. I have heard that it is better than expected, but I have a hard time getting around the "been there, done that" feeling I get whenever I see a trailer.

Get Rich or Die Tryin'. Also known as 8 Mile 2: Beyond the Bullets. This is another one I have heard some good word about, and also some of the negative variety. I am not a terribly big fan of 50 Cent, but it could be an interesting tale of survival. Not sure I really want to see it, it also evokes a "been there, done that" feeling. It does have Terrance Howard, he has been having a very good year so far.

Just One Look. An Asian coming of age tale set in the 1970's. It centers on a movie buff named Fan who investigates his father's death. It also incorporates clips from many films of the era. This looks to be interesting, too bad it is only getting 2 screenings.

Also opening this week, but not near me:
  • Bee Season
  • Duane Hopwood
  • Ellie Parker
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Pulse
  • Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic

That's it. Probably be a good weekend to catchup on missed recent releases.
