Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday March 30, 2012!

In limited release this week we have lots of films to choose from all over the world as well as home grown films like the Canadian comedy Servitude. Then we jet set off and can check out the Albanian set drama The Forgiveness of Blood, Hong Kong comedy Love in the Buff, South Korean suspense/thriller Nameless Gangster / Bumchoiwaui junjaeng and German drama Sleeping Sickness / Schlafkrankheit. If documentaries are more your thing there are a few to choose from including The Guantanamo Trap as well as Gerhard Richter Painting, a documentary on the German artist.

In wide release this week we have heavy hitters heading into the field with Mirror Mirror, a Snow White story from visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall, Immortals) starring Lily Cole & Julia Roberts and Wrath of the Titans a follow up to the Clash of the Titans (2010), a remake of the 1980s sword & sandals film and it looks like they are definitely continuing with the massive amounts of action & effects of the redux, and will be in 3D.

Reduxing itself in 3D is the epic blockbuster Titanic which is refitted from it's 1997 version now in 3D and being released on Wednesday April 4, 2012, the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.


Have a great weekend!
