Happy New Year! There is only one movie opening the first week of 2008.
Opening Nationwide on Friday, January 4th:
Movie: One Missed Call (PG-13) (Read Review)
Starring: Edward Burns, Shannyn Sossamon, Ana Claudia Talancón, Ray Wise & Azura Skye
Synopsis: It turns out that two friends that a woman recently witnessed die, both had received a voicemail on their cell phone that told them they would die. She thinks there is something behind this, while most of the cops thinks she is crazy. But, one detective thinks there might be something to it and they set out to figure out what is really going on.
First Thoughts: Looks like another crappy horror flick, like last year’s The Hitcher, but it is the only thing opening this week. At least it only last 87 minutes, so it will mercifully be over quickly.
This is the only choice for New Movie Friday, but you haven’t limited yourself to only seeing something that started that week, each week. So, you should go check out The Great Debaters or National Treasure: Book of Secrets, if you haven’t already, as those are actually worth seeing.
