Movies coming out this Friday! Plot summaries thanks to IMDB!

The Day the Earth Stood Still - Aliens land on Earth with an important message for its citizens. A remake of the classic 1951 sci-fi film directed by Robert Wise.

Nothing Like the Holidays - The scattered members of the Rodriguez family return to their parents' home in Chicago to celebrate the holiday season, as well as their youngest's safe return from combat overseas. But when old tensions surface, the pressure is on the individuals to truly come together as a family.

Delgo - When Delgo (voice of Prinze, Jr.), a troubled teenager, is framed for a crime he didn't commit, his subsequent prison escape leads him and a group of unlikely friends on adventure to save two sparring races from a common enemy.

"Four Christmases" continues to be the #1 movie in America for two weeks in a row. Darn holiday films always come out during the holidays! Coincidence? I think not.
"Bolt" and "Quantum of Solace" fell down a few ranks as "Australia" stayed alive. "Twilight" still makes the big bucks, but the big news on that movie I will post about later (director stuff).
Other films continue to stay alive (mad props goes to "Role Models" for staying in the top 10), but the biggest upset of the weekend was the bombing of "Punisher: War Zone." This movie flopped and that makes me sad because we might not see Punisher in theaters again for a long time now...if ever.
