We're just one week away from Labor Day and two weeks away from the end of summer and just like the rest of the year, the busiest movie has really flown by. If last weekend wasn't proof enough we're into the worst days of the summer with business dropping dramatically, three new movies will try to fight off the curse of August.
Nine years after their 2005 hit, director Robert Rodriguez and comic creator Frank Miller reunite for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
(Dimension Films), the sequel starring the returning Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Rosario Dawson, joined by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin (in Clive Owen's role, post-Dwight's facial surgery), super-hot Eva Green (as Ava, the "dame " in the title), Dennis Haysbert replacing the late Michael Clarke Duncan as Manute, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, Christopher Meloni and more.
This week's "CHOSEN ONE" is Ira Sachs' Love is Strange
(Sony Pictures Classics), starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, a festival favorite that opens in New York and Los Angeles on Friday.
