Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 11, 2007!!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

This week seems to be one of the few this summer that doesn't have a 'third' as a part of the releases. But have no fear, it doesn't have a second of sorts, or a +6 if you will. The sequel to 28 Days Later..., on of the strongest thriller in years is out this week: 28 Weeks Later.... I heard Robert Carlyle on the BBC speak of how much time can go by without a home grown (UK in that case) film is released in the theatre there. I never thought that could be an issue over there too! I do plan on making it out to see this one, although I think I might skip the tea. Seeing as during the first in the series I almost flung mine across the theatre inadvertently during a scary part. If that isn't what you are looking for this week, there are certainly many other choices out there for you... feel free to browse.
