Oscar nominations came out Thursday morning, with films like 'American Hustle' and '12 Years a Slave' leading the way. You can probably bet that none of this weekend's new releases will figure into next year's Oscars, but that doesn't mean there won't be something you like. The four films opening wide on Friday cover a wide range of genres and styles, a little something for everyone.
Two of these ('Lone Survivor,' 'Her') aren't technically opening this weekend, but they are expanding to many more theaters. That, along with the year's first Hercules flick (yup, there's another one coming in July) and the recent slew of high-quality holiday releases, make for a very crowded cineplex.
UPDATE 3:15 p.m. EST: The lockdown and shelter-in-place orders have been lifted, according to the Yale alert system. Police have been going door-to-door on campus searching for the gunman, though authorities will not confirm whether it may have been a hoax.
So, have you heard of this 'Hunger Games' thing? No? In that case, welcome to Earth! There's also this Vince Vaughn movie about a sperm donor, but no one really cares. This weekend, it's all about Katniss.
After a yearly increase in usage of 17,000 percent, "selfie" was crowned 2013's Word of the Year by Oxford Dictionaries, following last year's winner "gif" and beating out the Miley Cyrus-endorsed "twerk," among others.
UPDATE 2:30 p.m. EST: NBC is reporting that one TSA agent was killed and three others wounded. Airport police shot and may have killed the gunman at the scene. The shooter, whose identity has not been confirmed, was taken into custody after being shot.
This weekend brings two new flicks to theaters. The first is a crime thriller with a big-name cast, top-notch talent behind the camera, and dreams of Oscars. The other is, well, very different from that.
