Film Fan Fridays for Friday November 25, 2011

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday November 25, 2011! Bit of an odd one this week with not too many new films but still very new to theatres are the US Thanksgiving releases. Let's have a look at the selection.

In limited release this week we have just two releases to choose from and I have my eye on Klitschko a documentary on boxing brothers Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko that's playing at The Projection Booth. Our second limited release is Elite Squad: The Enemy Within / Tropa de Elite 2 - O Inimigo Agora É Outro, a follow up to the 2007 crime/drama Elite Squad.

In wide release this week it also feels very quiet with just two releases as well including Bollywood film Desi Boyz and Oscar-bait My Week with Marilyn with Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine, Meek's Cutoff) which is honestly one of the only films that I feel is revving us up for the Oscar season. Will be interesting to see if that changes with the remaining releases of the year.

Although that's all the films that are being released today, we had 3 mid-week releases on US Thanksgiving with The Muppets, Hugo and Arthur Christmas. Lots of fun family fare to enjoy and I know both The Muppets & Hugo are on my to see list (and Arthur Christmas got great reviews so...who know.. might have to fit it in too!

Have a great weekend!
