And what’s going on this week?
- He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: Season One
I’ve seen the lines for toys based on He-Man at the San Diego Comic-Con. I have no doubts that this will sell decently.
- American Gangster
Russel Crowe. Denzel Washington. Oscar bait. They didn’t bite on it too hard, though, did they? (Ruby Dee got a supporting actress nom and I think has a good chance of winning it. There’s also an Art Direction nomination in there, where it’s up against SWEENEY TODD and THERE WILL BE BLOOD, amongst others.)
- Michael Clayton
Oscar Bait Part II, now with more George Clooney.
Definitely NOT Oscar bait, but I have no idea what it is, aside from that it stars Jason Statham.
- Margot at the Wedding
I’ve heard of this one, vaguely. Nicole Kidman headlines the cast.
Next week: The Smurfs invade DVD!!!
