Opening This Weekend: January 9th

“It’s easy to kill a movie—just move it to January.” This is what the infinitely wise Dr. Evil preached in his visit to SNL a few weeks ago, and judging from our line-up, he may not be entirely wrong. January is pretty much the time where we all know which Awards darlings have made the cut, and which have been long discarded, and the studios act accordingly.
