New in Theaters - January 13, 2012
NEW YORK, NY (FOX44) – Disney classics, drug thrillers and joyful sounds, all that and more as FOX's Ashley Dvorkin gives a sneak peak at what's new in theaters.
You can find Mark Wahlberg in action-star form at the movies, starring as a man forced back into the dangerous world of international smuggling to protect his family in "Contraband". The singing you hear in the theater next door, that's Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah with their musical comedy "Joyful Noise" about a small town that falls on hard times and looks to the church choir for inspiration.
The Disney classic "Beauty and The Beast" gets a 3D makeover for grown-up fans of the original and those discovering the "tale as old as time" for the first time. Awards-season contender "The Iron Lady" expands to more theaters, hoping you check out Meryl Streep’s portrayal of U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Plus Tilda Swinton's much talked about role as a mother trying to cope with the shocking violence of her son in "We Need to Talk about Kevin" starts its limited-release run. And for those more in the mood for microwave popcorn, Indie filmmakers like Peter Facinelli offer on-demand options simultaneously with their limited releases and that's where you can find his latest flick "Loosies" following a New York pickpocket who has a life-changing chance encounter.
There are definitely a variety of choices for a movie-night this weekend.
