October theatrical releases

Today

The Seeker: The Dark is Rising: I've heard some fans of the book this is based on complain about changes, but I've never read the book, so I don't care. I'm just looking to feed my inner fantasy nerd.

October 12th

Elizabeth: The Golden Age: I didn't hear about this until I saw a poster from it at Wizard World Chicago in August. I just about peed my pants. Geoffrey Rush in Elizabeth was one of the coolest characters in the history of film. And how cool does Cate Blanchett look in that poster?

Michael Clayton: George Clooney as a male version of Jodie Foster's character in Inside Man. Versus Tilda Swinton. In a thriller written and directed by the guy who wrote all three Bourne movies.

Sleuth: (limited release) Michael Caine vs. Jude Law in a mystery written by a Nobel Prize-winning playwright and directed by Kenneth Freakin' Branagh. My head just exploded.

October 19th

30 Days of Night: I've been anxiously waiting for this since the graphic novel came out five years ago. I couldn't be more excited for Steve and Ben and my several other pals who've contributed to the 30 Days of Night mythos. This has been a long time coming and it's finally here!

Wristcutters: A Love Story: This one is also based on a graphic novel I really liked.

October 26th

Dan in Real Life: Steve Carell can do no wrong.

I got to catch 30 DAYS at a critic's screening Thursday morning. I'm not exaggerating when I say it's an instant horror classic.
