Two big films opening this weekend – we have “Chronicle” for superhero buffs and “The Woman in Black” for horror fans. “Chronicle” belongs in the found footage genre and tells the tale of three high school friends who gain their superpowers while making an incredible discovery. “The Woman in Black” stars Daniel Radcliffe as a widower and lawyer who dukes it out with the supernatural in a house in the marsh.
Which one is my pick of the week? Take a look!

Is "Back to the Future" heading to the Great White Way? With all the 80s film treasures getting Broadway makeovers, we all know that it's just a matter of time before the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown be transported to the stage. Deadline is exclusively reporting that director Robert Zemeckis is in early talks with his co-writer Bob Gale and composer Alan Silvestri to explore the Broadway possibilities of the time-traveling adventure"Back to the Future." I enjoyed the movie and the pairing of Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, so I welcome this musical news with open ears! Will Huey Lewis and the News' "Back in Time" be included?
