Studio’s Synopsis:

Paul Conroy, truck driver and family man, wakes up BURIED ALIVE in an old wooden coffin.

Worth seeing?

With a unique and nail biting premise that unfolds in real time and boasting a killer dramatic performance from Ryan Reynolds, this is the one to plonk your hard earned cash down for this weekend. (Rotten Tomatoes Rating)

Box Office Predictions:

With a virtually non existent budget of  around 3 million (though it’s still hard to see where they spent that), this isn’t the kind of film to generally break out huge at the box office but then again it only has to do small business to turn a healthy profit. Strong word of mouth and great reviews could see it hitting around 2 – 3 million locally. Depending on how wide the release in the U.S. expands  it could be a sizeable hit there but if the studio decides to go too cheap on the marketing campaign the film may just live up to it’s title.

Studio’s Synopsis:

While trying to get pregnant, a happily married woman realizes her life needs to go in a different direction, and after a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey. Based on the memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Worth seeing?

With trailers making it look like a screen version of a women’s self help book, reviews haven’t been too kind but they all seem to suggest the film coasts by on Julia Roberts enduring charm. (Rotten Tomatoes Rating)

Box Office Predictions:

The film marks Julia Roberts’ first solo star outing since 2000′s Erin Brockovich and while her star has definitely faded in the last decade, she still has an enduring relationship with an audience (mainly female) of a certain age. So far Eat is doing similar business in the U.S. to last years Julie and Julia, though it should easily double that films box office locally and cross 12 million.



SAGA New Movie Releases 07/10/10: Buried, Eat Pray LoveN

Genre: Biography/French
Rating: M
Running Time: 117 min
Director: Diane Kurys
Cast: Sylvie Testud, Pierre Palmade, Jeanne Balibar
Official Website: Link
Sagan is in limited release, for session times in your area, click here.

Studio’s Synopsis:

France, 1950s. From the Quartier Latin to Saint-Tropez via New York, a young Parisienne becomes the icon of a whole generation. In 1954, 19-year-old Francoise Sagan shot to fame with her first novel, Bonjour Tristesse. Flamboyant, scandalous and underrated, Sagan lived her life at the furthest edge of excess. She won and lost fortunes at the roulette table, bought and crashed superb sports cars, drank, danced and partied, leaving a trail of lovers in her wake.

Worth seeing?

Very few reviews around so far on this one but it definitely looks like the best French Biography coming out this October. An interesting note, Sagan was originally produced and shot as a two-part TV miniseries in 2008 but after being seen and purchased by Luc Besson, it was trimmed down to two hours and released as a feature film.

Box Office Predictions:

Due to limited interest this shouldn’t trouble the box office receipt talliers too much. Having said that, there is an audience for this kind of picture but usually it isn’t until the DVD release.
