We’re nearing the 2008 Election and starving crook Frankie (Scoot McNairy) just gave up his working class aspirations and returned to the Dry Cleaner with “all the angles.” There he learns about a card game they can heist while someone else takes the fall.

Last week’s new releases were met with a mixed bag of weekend numbers—the standout releases, Killing Them Softly and The Collection, made opening-weekend profits that were lower and higher than their estimates, respectively.

'Twilight' retains top spot with $17 mil; holdovers 'Skyfall,' 'Lincoln' round out top three – In its third frame with $17.4 million, Summit's "Twilight" finale, "Breaking Dawn -- Part 2," eked out a narrow victory over Sony-MGM's "Skyfall," which grossed an estimated $17 million in its fourth domestic outing. "Part 2" has cumed $254.6 million domestically and counting; "Skyfall" reached $246 million Stateside. The post-Thanksgiving frame usually is one of the slowest moviegoing weekends of the year, though with totals at north of $110 million, this weekend doesn't even rank in the top five slowest frames of 2012. 9 years 43 weeks ago via brucelee

New Posters For 'Zero Dark Thirty' & 'Killing Them Softly'

zdt-kts-posters.jpg – After a first poster that didn't even show the title, Universal has realized that people need to the know the name of a movie if they are going to buy tickets and so they have dropped a rather plain poster for "Zero Dark Thirty." As you know, this one is Kathryn Bigelow's semi-controversial take on the hunt and killing of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden, and it has already drawn the scrutiny of political types hoping to expose the movie as Obama propaganda. 9 years 52 weeks ago via jetli
