What's opening in theaters next week
Saturday, 26 June 2010

Opening Wednesday:

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE (PG-13) - The plot hopefully thickens in the third chapter in the tale of love between the teenaged Bella (Kristen Stewart) and her vampire beau (Robert Pattinson). Their romance is complicated by her growing friendship with wolf-boy Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and a string of serial murders that may or may not have been committed by vampires invading their Northwestern town. The question isn't whether the movie will be a hit: The question is just HOW big will it be?

Opening Thursday:

THE LAST AIRBENDER (PG-13) - Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan hopes to rebuild his fan base after a trio of disappointments ("The Village," "Lady in the Water," "The Happening") with this live-action, 3D adaptation of the hit Nickelodeon animated series about Aang (Noah Ringer), a boy who discovers he is the sole remaining avatar capable of controlling all four elements - a talent that comes in handy during a war that erupts between the realms of Air, Water, Earth and Fire. Filmmakers had to shorten the show's original title, "Avatar: The Last Airbender," after that spoilsport James Cameron beat them to the punch with his little art film about blue people.
