I feel sorry for Russell Crowe this weekend, because his “not without my wife” movie is up against ‘Harry Potter.’ If ‘The Next Three Days’ was rated R, it might get a different audience, but because it’s PG-13, it might be hurting against Hogwarts. We’ll see how the numbers shake out on Monday. Here’s the rundown on what’s new at the theater this weekend:
‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 1’ – Harry and his pals are searching for Horcruxes as dark forces swirl around them. More here, along with some photos of the kids turning into adults. Directed by David Yates; 146 min.; rated PG-13 for some sequences of intense action violence, frightening images and brief sensuality.
More after the jump…
‘The Next Three Days’ – When a woman (Elizabeth Banks) is accused of murder, her husband (Russell Crowe) plots to break her out of jail. Liam Neeson also stars, and I have to say, this trailer does look really fun – in a high-action thriller sort of way. Plus, I love Russell Crowe movies. Directed by Paul Haggis; 122 min.; rated PG-13 for violence, drug material, language, some sexuality and thematic elements.
