There are seven movies opening this Friday. Two are opening everywhere and five more open on a limited basis.
Opening Nationwide on Friday, December 10th:
Movie: Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (PG)
Starring: Ben Barnes, Georgie Henley & Skandar Keynes
Genre: Fantasy Adventure
Synopsis: Lucy, Edmund, and their cousin Eustace are back in Narnia and join Prince Caspian for a voyage on the royal vessel known as The Dawn Treader. Their voyage has them crossing paths with merfolk, dragons, dwarves, and a wandering band of lost warriors.
First Thoughts: I’ve seen the first two and will probably see this one as well, but there is not that huge level of excitement to do so, even though it looks visually spectacular. It is also available in 3D.
Movie: The Tourist (PG)
Starring: Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rufus Sewell & Timothy Dalton
Synopsis: An American tourist on a trip to Italy hoping to mend his broken heart crosses paths with an extraordinary woman that gets him involved unwittingly in her plan.
First Thoughts: This looks like a whole lot of fun. Looking forward to see it in on Friday.
