What's Playing 05/30/08

Let’s see, you have two choices this weekend as the summer hits have come to a lull before the big storms hit in June, July, and August. You can check out some freaky horror in The Strangers or you can watch a rerun of every episode of Sex And The City all rolled into one convenient flick. Yep, I’d go see Iron Man again too!

Wide Release

Sex And The City – Starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, and more. By now you may have seen what life was like in the city for the four women who do nothing but think about sex all day. Now learn what it is like on the big screen as Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda learn to live life in New York and deal with men, work, and sex along the way.

The Strangers – Starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman. Sometimes crimes are committed by those you know very well and they were merely envious of your wonderful belongings and life. Most crimes usually are committed by someone that you either know very well or at least know you. But then there are those which happen just because you happened to be around. Witness the horrible events unfold as young couple staying in an isolated vacation home is terrorized by three unknown assailants.
