New in Theatres · October 28, 2011

If you decide to take a break from all the booze, candy and indecent costumes this Hallowe’en weekend, these are the big new comers at the cinemas this week. If you’re looking for some new scary movies to celebrate your All Hallow’s Eve, you’re out of luck. Instead you get a narcissistic cartoon cat with some fairly inappropriate dialogue considering its supposed to be for children.

Time Is Money.”

Directing: Andrew Niccol
Writing: Andrew Niccol
Starring: Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde,

Immortality is up for sale in a future in which humans are engineered to stop aging at the age of 25, but only live for one year after. The wealthy live forever, the destitute struggle for every last minute and one couple rises up against the system.

Price of Admission will get you a damn sexy cast in something that looks like a somewhat unsuccessful marriage of ‘GATTACA’ and ‘Logan’s Run’.

Running Time · 109 min
Genre · Crime / Sci-Fi / Thriller
Rated · PG-13

One part outrage. One part justice. Three parts rum. Mix Well.

Directing: Bruce Robinson
Writing: Bruce Robinson (screenplay), Hunter S. Thompson (novel),
Starring: Johnny Depp, Giovanni Ribisi Aaron Eckhart, Michael Rispoli

Based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson, this movie chronicles the adventures of Paul Kemp, a young American journalist working for one of Puerto Rico’s newspapers. It doesn’t take long before he adopts the rum-saturated lifestyle of the island and finds himself in with some less than reputable locals.

Price of Admission will get you Johnny Depp revisiting his role as Hunter S. Thompson.

Running Time · 120 min
Genre · Drama / Mystery / Thriller
Rated · 14A

Looking good never looked so good.”

Directing: Chris Miller
Writing: Charles Perrault, Brian Lynch, David H. Steinberg, Tom Wheeler, Jon Zach
Starring: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton

Did ‘Shrek 2’ leave you with countless unanswered questions about how exactly that charming, swashbuckling cat came to meet Shrek and his buddies? Yeah, we didn’t care either, but someone over at Dreamworks thinks this is a story worth telling.

Price of Admission will get you an egotistical, cartoon cat swaggering his way through crude jokes and animated adventure.

Running Time · 90 min
Genre · Adventure, Animation, Comedy, Fantasy
Rated · G

Was Shakespeare a Fraud?”

Directing: Roland Emmerich
Writing: John Orloff
Starring: Rhys Ifans, Ed Hogg, Vanessa Redgrave, David Thewlis, Sebastian Armesto, Rafe Spall

Did William Shakespeare write all the literary masterpieces to which he is credited? Speculation on that litigious theory is fused with some good old-fashioned political intrigue and scandalous romances for good measure.

Price of Admission will get you a controversial period-drama theorizing the authenticity of the classic works of William Shakespeare brought to you by the guy responsible for ‘Independence Day’, The Day After Tomorrow’, and ‘Godzilla’?!  REALLY?!?

Running Time · 130 min
Genre · Drama
Rated · PG-13

  1. I really want to see “The Rum Diary”…considering “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” is one of my favourite movies ever. Remember when I went as him for Hallowe’en? haha. Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Huner S. THompson is just awesome. Can’t wait to see more of that.
