Film Fan Fridays for Friday September 14, 2007!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday September 14, 2007! Quick newsletter this week and I'm still completely immersed in TIFF 07, and in fact three of this weeks releases are a part of TIFF this year: Across the Universe, The Brave One and Eastern Promises. Sidenote to those heading out to the theatre this weekend - make sure you check listings carefully for showtimes on Friday and Saturday, as many theatres in the downtown core will still be showing TIFF films.
Our limited releases this week are the 60's romance Across the Universe as well as the critically acclaimed Eastern Promises. I have to say I am mighty surprized to see Eastern Promises is only showing at one theatre, perhaps that will expand to more theatres next week.

Wide releases for this week included revenge flick The Brave One, war journalist drama The Hunting Party and Mr. Woodcock which is being billed as 'comedy'.

Have a great weekend!
