What's Playing 05/09/08

Just because Iron Man opened up last weekend doesn’t mean that more films aren’t coming out. The highly successful animated series Speed Racer is jumping onto the big screen and it’s going to be insane. Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz also do something in some other movie. But you know what else is still out?


Wide Release

Speed Racer – Starring Emile Hirsch, Christina Ricci, Susan Sarandon, John Goodman, Matthew Fox, and more. Speed Racer is a young man with natural racing instincts whose goal is to win The Crucible, a cross-country car racing rally that took the life of his older brother, Rex Racer. With his ultimate racer, the Mach 5, Speed must forge a partnership with his arch-enemy Racer X, in order to take down an evil corporation.

What Happens In Vegas – Starring Ashton Kutcher, Cameron Diaz, Rob Corddry, and more. Jack and Joy discover they’ve gotten married following a night of debauchery in Sin City, with one of them winning a huge jackpot after playing the other’s quarter. The unhappy pair tries to undermine each other and get their hands on the money, falling in love along the way.

Limited Release

Noise – The community reels after an incident on a suburban train. A young cop, beset with doubt and afflicted with tinnitus, is pitched into the chaos that follows this tragic event. He struggles to clear the noises in his head while all around him deal with the after burn of the crime.

Frontier(s) – After an unsuccessful heist, a group of young criminals hide out in a local hostel, but they would’ve been far better off facing the police since the place is owned by neo-Nazis who are hungry for human flesh. Make yourself ready for a night of fear and shivers while watching this film straight out of After Dark’s HorrorFest 2007.

Redbelt, Son Of Rambow, Then She Found Me, and The Tracey Fragments are all expanding.
