This week there are six new movies being released. Two of them are opening everywhere on Wednesday, August 6th and four are in limited release.

Opening Nationwide on Wednesday, August 6th:

Movie: Pineapple Express (R)
Starring: Seth Rogen, James Franco, Gary Cole, Rosie Perez & Danny R. McBride
Genre: Action Comedy
Synopsis: A dude drops his roach after witnessing a murder and then finds out that the rare strain of marijuana he was smoking could be traced back to the dealer and him. So, he and his dealer go on the run with the murdering drug lord and a crooked cop trying to track them down.
First Thoughts: Not sure about this one, but most likely will be seeing it on Friday. The situation may be kind of new, but the comedy seems to be pumping a well that has to be pretty dry by now.

Genre: Comedy Drama
Synopsis: It is three years since the end of the events of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and the four girls are embarking on their first year of college.
