Coming to the big screen


The following movies are scheduled to begin their Oahu run on Friday:

Rated PG-13
Leonard DiCaprio and Virginie Ledoyen star. Loosely adapted from the Alex Garland's book, DiCaprio is Richard, a bored thrill-seeker in Thailand who comes upon a mysterious map promising a paradise. Ledoyen and her boyfriend (Guillaume Canet) accompany him on the trek to paradise run by Sal (Tilda Swinton). Its inhabitants, it seems, have only dipped their toes into the concept of going native: Many of them would still rather peer into the small screen of a GameBoy than drink in the gorgeous island scenery.

Rated PG
A Nickelodeon co-production about the things that happen to a typical American family on an atypical day. Chris Elliott, Iggy Pop and Pam Grier are among the strange cast-fellows. (Paramount)

Rated G
Winnie the Pooh and company make an animated return. (Disney)

The following movie is scheduled for sneak previews in Oahu theaters on Saturday:

Rated R
Matthew Perry's dentist and Bruce Willis' hit man must help each other avoid assassination. It's a comedy. (Warner Bros.)
