Movies Opening This Week: Delay No More edition

Speaking of delays, the delayed Harry Potter movie (Half-Blood Prince) is getting an earlier release date. Err, that is, earlier by 4 days from the original release date. Whoops, then.

But another delayed movie (twice delayed!) is getting its theatrical debut at last, and it is...
The Soloist
It was supposed to debut last year so it can be fresh in the memory of Oscar-voters, but instead it was delayed to April. Now, it's coming and I don't feel as excited anymore, but it's still something to watch out for nonetheless.

Starring huge names, this movie is based on a true story and is a huge deviation for director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) who typically directs British period book adaptations. It's about a journalist who discovers the hidden talents of a homeless man who developed schizophrenia during his second year in music school.

Other movies opening this week include Fighting and Obsessed, two movies I don't think aren't good nor bad enough to deserve mention. Although Obsessed notably has Beyonce starring in it.
