Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 22, 2009

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 22, 2009! Well, here we are at the 4th Friday of the biggest release month of the year so far and we have yet another huge release this week with Terminator Salvation. But, considering that is technically yesterdays news, lets see what else is being offered this week.

In limited release this week we have a wealth of choices from the crime/comedy The Brothers Bloom, more along the lines of crime-theme is quirky-yet-dramatic new film from Jim Jarmusch, The Limits of Control. Feel like travelling the world? Check out the Filipino drama Serbis or Mexican sport film Rudy Y Cursi starring Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna. I'll likely be trekking to see the historical/biopic Little Ashes that centres on artists Salvador Dalí, Federico García Lorca and Luis Buñuel.

In wide release this week we have a first, dance film genre parody from the Wayans: Dance Flick. Also in wide release if family friendly adventure Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.

Have a great weekend!

Shannon

it'll be interesting to see how the box office looks after this long weekend.

it could be interesting. i'm really curious to see how night at the museum 2 performs -- i feel like it could be a box office hit or a bust.
