    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- If you are thinking of heading to a movie this weekend, we have everything you need to know before you go.

    THV Film Critic Jonathan Nettles joined Ashley on 'THV This Morning' to talk about this weekend at the box office. New this week are Frankenweenie, Taken 2, and The Master. Click on the THVideo!

    Out on DVD this week are:

    - Dark Shadows
    - People Like Us
    - Red Lights
    - Sound of My Voice
    - Iron Sky
    Cinderella - Blu-Ray
    - The Princess Bride - 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray

    In other news, if you are going to the movies on a regular basis, you've probably complained about the price of tickets at one time or another. A subscription service heralded as the 'Netflix for movie theaters" is being launched nationally this week. Via a smartphone app called "Moviepass", subscribers can reserve and pay for their seats and pick up their tickets at the theater. The price ranges from 25-40 dollars a month - depending on location - and allows members to see one 2D movie per day at any theater that accepts credit cards. For now, it's an invite-only group as more people take advantage, it will most likely become more widely available. Will it save you money? It depends on how many times you go to the movies. Here in Little Rock, you'd need to go see 3 movies a month to break even. 

    Today, October fifth marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No, and thus the James Bond film franchise, which makes today Global James Bond Day. If there's anything that James Bond is known for besides Martini's (shaken, not stirred), Aston Martin's, and watches with lasers, it's having a killer song to go with every movie. Adding to the list of grammy award winning artists to record a Bond song is Adelle. The song "Skyfall" is her first recording since her massively successful album 21. The new song is now available on iTunes. Skyfall, the movie, will be released on November 9th.

    Arnold Schwarzenneger is promoting his autobiography "Total Recall". In an interview he explained how he tried to change his most famous line from the movie The Terminator. He says:

    "I could not pronounce really well this 'I'll' so I just kept saying to James Cameron just say 'I will be back,' as it sounds more like a machine, And he says 'No, no, no.' He says 'Look, I don't tell you how to act so don't tell me how to write. I wrote the line 'I'll be back.'"

    Schwarzenegger continued: "It sounds really weird when I say it with my German accent but he said 'I don't care,' let's just say it ten different ways and then one will work. And so that's what we did."
