Fall Movie Guide: September 2012 – Week 1

Finding Nemo 3D

Well, Disney is re-releasing Finding Nemo in 3D today.  I don’t know what else to say about this one, other than if you haven’t seen it, 3D is probably the way to check out one of Pixar‘s best films.  I know I’m probably only speaking to 1% of the p0pulation there, so take that as you may.

Resident Evil: Retribution

Resident Evil: Retribution 3D also releases today, and by this point, if you can stand the last few awful movies in the series (I stopped after Apocalypse) then you might be interested in this one, and to be fair, I’ve heard the last two were better than the first two, but I personally didn’t believe that enough to see either one.  People that are bored or huge Resident Evil fans will probably see it, I just can’t imagine who else will be going to see this.  It will probably do alright at the box office however, although I doubt it will beat out Finding Nemo since both are the 3D choices this weekend.

IN LIMITED RELEASE

10 Years

The new film starring Channing Tatum and Rosario Dawson concerns them meeting up 10 years after high school, where they realize how much or little they have changed since the days of high school and probably reflect on feelings they used to have and how they feel now.  If this one does well, it will expand further.

The Master

Yes, this finally opens, however, only in 4 theaters across the country.  It’s playing in 70mm this week only in Los Angeles at the Dome, but I’m not sure where else will be showing a 70mm screen.  However, it will begin to expand next week as it continues on the path toward awards season, so the rest of us can only wait with baited breath until that point.  If you really need to be sold on the new P.T. Anderson film, you probably aren’t interested in the first place.

Liberal Arts

The Sundance hit is finally making its way to theaters in some cities, and How I Met Your Mother fans will rejoice.  Josh Radnor (star of How I Met Your Mother) wrote and directed and stars in this film, and his co-star is the ever-rising Elizabeth Olsen.  This is Radnor’s second directorial effort after Happythankyoumoreplease, which wasn’t particularly loved by anyone, but I suppose it has its own audience.  This one is for 30-somethings looking for something that isn’t a kids film, isn’t overly serious, and isn’t an atrocious horror-action film.

Stolen

This one is pretty much explained by the poster.  Nicolas Cage and Malin Ackerman star in this one from the director of The Expendables 2 and the writer of Safe House.  This one has been sitting around, and is getting dumped by Millenium Films and that’s most likely because it tested horribly and they don’t want to spend anything to release it.  I don’t know much more about this one, other than the fact that it will probably add to the YouTube videos of Nic Cage freaking out and screaming about his daughter.  If you’re in it for the comedy, that’s probably the best approach.
