New In Theaters - September 14, 2012

Starring: Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres & Alexander Gould
Directed by Andrew Stanton, Lee Unkrich for distribution by Disney/Pixar

The Plot: A over-cautious clown fish teams up a forgetful but well-meaning fish to rescue his son who was scooped up by a diver.

The Final Word: “Finding Nemo” dominated when it first came out in 2003 and has been one of Disney/Pixar’s most recognizable films to date. Now courtesy of the 3D upgrade trend it’s getting a second life in theaters.

Starring: Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand,
Shawn Roberts, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe & Li Bingbing
Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson for distribution by Sony Screen Gems

The Plot: The continuing adventures of Alice as she battles the mysterious Umbrella Corporation and seeks the truth about her own origins.

The Final Word: Three sequels and over $700 million later the “Resident Evil” film series has carved out a nice fanbase that continually shows up to the theater. “Retribution,” the fifth installment in franchise (and X in 3D) shouldn’t have a problem capitalizing on what otherwise is a very light weekend.
