Blockbuster New Releases

March 21st, 2012

Check out the new Blockbuster releases for this week!

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

Daniel Craig plays a discredited journalist working with a mysterious computer hacker on the 40-year-old disappearance of Harriet Vanger at the behest of her uncle who suspects she may have been murdered by a member of her own family. As the pair dig deeper they learn that even the wealthiest families have skeletons in their closets, and there are those who will go to great lengths to keep their secrets buried. David Fincher directed this remake of the 2009 Swedish thriller of the same name that was inspired by late author Stieg Larsson’s successful trilogy of books.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (2011)

Set in England, 1973, British Secret Intelligence Service head Control (John Hurt) and his top-ranking lieutenant George Smiley (Gary Oldman) are both forced into retirement after a mission involving respected secret agent Jim Prideaux (Mark Strong) turns unexpectedly deadly. As the Cold War continues to escalate, suspicions of a Soviet double agent begin to grow within SIS. Subsequently summoned by Undersecretary Oliver Lacon (Simon McBurney), Smiley is secretly reemployed by the SIS in order to root out the double agent suspected of sharing top-secret British intelligence with the Soviets.

The Sitter (2011)

College dropout Noah (Jonah Hill) is looking for some extra cash and he’ll do just about anything to get it. Shortly after he’s hired to look after three young children, though, Noah gets a call from his girlfriend enticing him to join her at a part. The irresponsible sitter packs his unsuspecting wards into the car and heads for the seedy part of town. Before Noah can think twice the whole night has gone to hell, and he’s on the run from a pair of murderous drug dealers with no qualms about shooting at small targets.

The Muppets (2011)

Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) never met an oil field he couldn’t suck dry. So when Tex discovers a bountiful reservoir right underneath Muppet Theater, he begins drawing up plans to claim the land and start drilling. Little does Tex realize that devoted Muppets fan Walter is currently in Los Angeles with his best friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams), and that he’s not about to let one man’s greed spoil a good thing for everyone. With Kermit by their side, Walter, Gary, and Mary hatch a plan to put on a big telethon that will help them raise the ten million dollars needed to keep Muppet Theater standing.
