This week sees Tom Cruise return to the big screen with the action thriller Jack Reacher. Based on the best selling series of books by Lee Child, Reacher sees Cruise in familiar territory once again. While it might not be the weighty, awards bait type of release that generally comes at the end of the year, Jack Reacher looks like it will be a fun romp. And joining Jack Reacher in wide release this week is Judd Apatow’s latest comedic effort, This Is 40. Pitched as a sort-of follow-up to Knocked Up, This Is 40 has all the ingredients for another Apatow success.
Christmas Day sees some major releases but we’ll save them for next week because everywhere that is not the theater is pretty much a wasteland this week and next. With that in mind, spend some time with your families and watch some classics.
So what will you be watching this week?
