The trailer from Candy, Heath Ledger's latest
  • Acclaimed director Neil Armfield has adapted Luke Davies' best-selling novel "Candy" and produced a contemporary love story of startling beauty for the screen. In the title role, Abbie Cornish delivers a fearless portrayal of a young artist whose lust for life takes her to the edge of sanity. Heath Ledger breathes a sweet and tender optimism into Dan, a sometime-poet lost in love with Candy. In heroin they find a path to limitless pleasure. But as addiction takes hold they lose the very thing they sought. "Candy" opens the door on a dream vision that will have meaning for all who have been dazzled by the beauty of the world.

Thi sweek's movies (2900 screens): Hoot - 13% positive reviews

This week's movies (1500 screens): An American Haunting - 36% positive reviews.
  • Slant Magazine has an interesting take on it .... An American Haunting takes the spurious "based on real events" claim to new extremes, proffering a ghost story that's been (as per the production notes) "validated by the State of Tennessee as the only case in U.S. history where a spirit or entity caused the death of a human being." What this really means is that the people of Tennessee circa 1818 — the setting for this tale of a family's problems with a malevolent demon — were an unreliably superstitious bunch, as Courtney Solomon's 19th-century film seems about as rooted in historical fact as his previous directorial outing, Dungeons & Dragons.

The Weekend Warrior makes his predictions for the upcoming weekend.
  • The story of this weekend, of course, is whether America is sick of Tom Cruise. Warrior thinks enough of them will show up give MI-3 a higher gross than the rest of the Top Twelve combined.
  • If his prediction is right, the Dirty Dozen will be more than 60% ahead of the equivalent group last year, and MI-3 will almost single-handedly beat last year's entire total!
