Quite a few films hit cinemas this weekend, well compared to previous weeks anyway, although I have to say that none of these films seem overly appealing and the couple that are aren't playing in my local theatre. This sucks. As a matter of fact I have noticed that Skyfall is still dominating the screenings so new films out this week, even a Paul Thomas Anderson or Marion Cotillard film, won't be knocking it off its stride. The new Bond is a great film so I can understand why cinemas keep it going but for those who have seen it it could be a dull weekend at the movies for you. Have a look at what is out below.
1. Tying in with Halloween is FUN SIZE although this isn't a horror but a comedy. A teenage girl's Halloween plans are ruined when she is made to take her younger brother trick or treating when her Mother is called away, however in the midst of dressed up kids she loses him and gathers help from her best friends to find the sibling before her mother returns. Starring: Victoria Justice, Chelsea Handler, Jackson Nicoll, & Josh Pence. What could be scarier on Halloween?

So there we have it the films released this week. It is odd to see a list of so many but none that particularly jump out at you. The two I want to see seem to be unavailable so at this moment in time I have no idea what I will be seeing. Perhaps you will be in for a surprise when you come back on Monday and see what I have reviewed. Have a nice weekend folks.
