What's Playing 01/09/09

Howdy folks and welcome to the first real release date of the new year. Only three new films are opening this week and you’ve got your choice of comedy, drama, and horror so there is a little bit of something for everyone. If none of those happen to quench your viewing thirst then I’m sure one of the multiple of films that are expanding to everywhere will be more your speed. Have fun and get ready for what is hopefully a great year at the movies.

Wide Release

Bride Wars – Starring Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway, Candice Bergen, and more. As if weddings weren’t stressful enough already.

Always planning to be each other’s maid of honor at their respective weddings; their dream location can only schedule their weddings on the exact same day.

Not Easily Broken – Starring Morris Chestnut, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, and more. After years of disagreeing on what true happiness, success, and love really are, Dave and Clarice Johnson have finally reached a breaking point in their marriage. When Clarice is hurt in a car accident, the obvious truth that more than just her injuries need immediate attention is exposed. Their odds of making it worsen as Clarice begins to see a physical therapist, and Dave develops a friendship with Julie and her teenage son Bryson. The acceptance and comfort he finds in them stirs his longing for a family and a passionate partner. As temptation tugs at Dave and Clarice pulls farther away, they must confront whether their vows are true or not worth the words spoken.

The Unborn – Starring Odette Yustman, Gary Oldman, Meagan Good, and more. A young woman begins seeing things that aren’t really there and dealing with frightening situations that don’t seem to be affecting anyone else.
