Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 28, 2010

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 28, 2010! It's a bit of a quiet week for in terms of volume of releases with only 5 films hitting the screens this week but considering two of them are Sex and the City 2 and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time I have a feeling it will be a busy week at the theatres!

In limited release this week we have Micmacs / Micmacs à tire-larigot, the latest film from Jean-Pierre Jeunet who brought us Amelie, City of the Lost Children and Delicatessen. Second and final limited release of the week is the Academy Award nominated film Ajami, which was nominated for Foreign Language film.

In wide release this week we have Kites: The Remix, a 90 minute remixed version of the Bollywood film Kites which full 140 version came out just last week. Next up is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the adventure film starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton that is based on the video game of the same name. Last up is yesterdays midweek release of Sex and the City 2 with Carrie & the girls are back to continue their adventures and escapades, and it's a lot of fun.

Also this week is the official opening of the new Toronto theatre: The Toronto Underground. They are starting off with their opening weekend with fantastic screenings choices ranging from Rumble in the Bronx to The Runaways to The White Ribbon. See more info at their Facebook Page and website.

Have a great weekend!
