Film Fan Fridays for Friday April 3, 2009

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday April 3, 2009! It looks like April showers are trying to visit us, what better way to keep them at bay than by being tucked away in the theatre enjoying a great new film?

We have quite a few limited release this week starting with the spectacular documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil, which follows the dedicated metal band Anvil. Next up is Fanboys, following the fictional quest of five friends to snag a copy of Star Wars: Episode I from Skywalker Mansion. Fanboys is such a long awaited release that it arrives in theatres just two months before it will be released on DVD. Our remaining limited releases have us travellling with world with the German film Cloud 9, then over to a hotel in Goa for The Pool and finally Sin Nombre a Hondruas set thriller.

In wide release this week we have just 2 releases. First up is Adventureland, a comedy/coming of age film set in an amusement park circa 1987 which looks pretty charming. Our last release is Fast & Furious, which reunites all the key players from the original fast cars & cool people film but sans the "the's".

Have a great weekend!

Shannon

the classic cars they use in Fast and Furious are what make this movie worth watching
