[ PREVIEW ]
Opening this weekend:
"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire": This promises to be a more action-packed sequel, as the movie chronicles the teenage Harry's participation in the TriWizard Tournament -- while he's simultaneously unraveling a sinister conspiracy, discovering girls and dodging creepy glances from a spooky new teacher named "Mad-Eye" Moody -- plus there's the grotesque rebirth of Lord Voldemort to top it off. (PG-13)
"Pride & Prejudice": Yet another adaptation of Jane Austen's 1813 novel, with Keira Knightley in the role of the strong-willed Elizabeth Bennet, and newcomer Matthew MacFadyen as her suitor, the handsome if snobbish Mr. Darcy. (PG)
"Walk the Line": Joaquin Phoenix plays the late country music star Johnny Cash, following the iconic figure's rise to fame, drug addiction and romance with June Carter (Reese Witherspoon). (PG-13)
