The Blockbuster Report

We’re back to one wide-release film this weekend, the long-anticipated Star Trek Into Darkness. I’m no trekkie, but this is certainly my film to watch this weekend.


I really enjoyed Abrams’ first Star Trek film, and was excited to hear about a sequel. (Side note: seriously, how does one guy get to direct both Star Trek and Star Wars films? Crazy…Aliens!). Plus, Benedict Cumberbatch is one of my favorite actors. This film topped a lot of people’s “Most Anticipated” lists, and early reviews are indicating it won’t disappoint. Of course, since TWIC is always spoiler-free, you’ll have to wait for a review from me.

Limited release films this include: Frances HaErased (Aaron Eckhart), The English Teacher (Julianne Moore), and Black Rock. Frances Ha may be the only one worth looking into. It’s a comic look at New York City through the eyes of a worker at a dance studio.
