About a Boy

Talk about an unenviable task... Universal Pictures has chosen About a Boy to be a sacrificial lamb, electing to open it on May 17, opposite Attack of the Clones. Maybe they're hoping that movie-goers disappointed by sell-outs at the latest Star ...

Jack the Giant Slayer

Those Who Wish Me Dead
