Every week, I gather in the movie times that wander around like wayward talkies, and I bring them home to our film section.
Today, I'll try to pass along some news from the road — the comings and goings of national films as they move through local theaters. Please note these tidbits are valid for the upcoming film week, which begins this Friday; in other words, if I write that a movie's dropping out of multiple theaters, you can probably still catch it today or tomorrow.
• The Dilemma, the Vince Vaughn and Kevin James vehicle that Rotten Tomatoes sums up with a solid "an uneven blend of cheesy slapstick and surprisingly dark comedy," is about to fall off a cliff at Picture Show this week, dropping to just one showtime at 9:25 p.m.
• Black Swan hangs on another week at the only theater to carry it locally — Tinseltown. Also, James Cameron's spelunker-fest Sanctum and The Green Hornet are about to see hard falls from every theater in the city to just T-Town.
• Due Date and How Do You Know are set to vanish from Picture Show, coming soon to a DVD near you.
• Yogi Bear has landed in the mystical void of Not in Theaters and Not in the Dollar Theater. In the next few weeks it, as well as The Mechanic, is headed for Picture Show. Not, however, this week.
• If you dig a some scowly Anthony Hopkins with your evening, catch The Rite at its only remaining theater: Carmike 10. Our reviewer Tricia Olszewski called Hopkins "fantastic" at "rendering in-your-face whispers or sudden glances creepy as hell."
