Film Fan Fridays for Friday July 31, 2009

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday July 31, 2009! I hope those of us who have a long weekend this weekend enjoy it, maybe we'll even get some sunshine. It's a quiet week with only 5 releases and no festivals, but enjoy it while it lasts as we'll be kicking into high gear pretty soon.

In limited release this week we have 2 releases started with Fifty Dead Men Walking directed by Kari Skoglard (The Stone Angel) starring Jim Sturgess, Ben Kingsley, Kevin Zegers, Nathalie Press and Rose McGowan and is included as a part of Canada's Top Ten 2008. Our second limited release is Shrink starring Kevin Spacey.

In wide release this week we have family friendly fantasy film Aliens in the Attic along with the Bollywood release Love Aaj Kal. We also have Funny People directed by Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) and starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen which clocks in at a whopping 2 hr 26 minutes. Holy smokes, that is long! I thought the trailer showed too much but perhaps it's only the tip of the iceberg.

Have a great weekend!

Shannon
