Film Fan Fridays for Friday December 10, 2010

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday December 10, 2010!

In limited release this week we have just one release with The King's Speech, a royal family biopic centred on the journey of the Duke of York (Colin Firth) in his journey to overcome his stammer with the help of an unorthodox Lionel Logue. The film won 5 BIFA's and I anticipate it will (deservedly) be in this years Oscar race, I got a chance to see it and I'd highly recommend it - compelling story and spectacular performances by Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush.

In wide release this week we have one of my most anticipated films of the year with the family fantasy The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (in 3D), the third film in the series based on the books by C.S. Lewis. We also have the espionage/romance The Tourist starring Angelina Jolie & Johnny Depp and the Bollywood film No Problem.

Been some re-jigging on the release schedule, as it looked like we were going to get Julie Taymour's The Tempest this week but it's been shifted to a Thursday December 16, 2010 release, plus if you didn't see Black Swan last week it's opening in more theatres today. If you can't wait one extra second to see Tron: Legacy it's having some midnight screenings next week on Thursday December 16, 2010. Check your local listings for show times.

Have a great weekend!
