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 "Today's THV This Morning" to talk about this weekend at the box office.
He recommends Resident Evil: Retribution. This is the fourth installment of the Resident Evil franchise which is loosely based on the popular video game series. Jonathan says this is an action, sci-fi, horror film that if nothing else should be really fun to watch.
Next up is Finding Nemo 3D. Jonathan says Disney is in the process of releasing a lot of their classic films in 3D.
A movie opening at Market Street Cinema is Robot & Frank. It stars Frank Langella as an ex-jewel thief who in the near future gives his son a robotic butler to look after him but soon the two pals try their luck as a heist team.
Out on DVD this week are some great movies:
- Snow White & The Huntsman
- What to Expect When You're Expecting
- For Greater Glory
- Lola Versus
Attention Twi-hards! Summit Entertainment has announced plans for Twilight movie marathons November 15. It will feature a screening of each film in the series leading up to Breaking Dawn: Part 2. The film isn't officially released until Nov. 16 but if you attend a Twilight marathon, you'll get to see it a full two hours before the rest of the world! Tickets go on sale October 1.
And there have been some other Hollywood announcements of note, The Hunger Games sequel and The Hangover 3 have both started filming this week. Universal Pictures has announced sequels to "Ted" (the R-rated teddy bear comedy) and "The Bourne Legacy".
And the toy company, Hasbro, has declared that in Transformers 4, there shall be no Optimus Prime. The reasoning is that while the films were huge financial successes, it didn't lead to toy sales so they want to introduce new toys.
