Coming to the big screen


Oahu theater's expect the following movies to open on Friday.

Rated R
Jeffrey Combs, Geoffrey Rush, Taye Diggs, Peter Gallagher and Elizabeth Hurley star in a remake of the 1958 classic with Vincent Price. A wealthy eccentric (Rush) invites a diverse gathering of individuals to a party at his creepy mansion. He offers the bait: They will receive $1 million if they spend the night in the house. Thinking they can dash with the cash, the guests receive a rather rude awakening when mysterious events begin to transpire and rumors about the house's grisly past appear to be true.

Rated R
With Owen Wilson, Brian Cox, Sheryl Crow, Mercedes Ruehl. A serial killer (Wilson) who travels across North America, killing people who complain about their lives.

Rated PG-13
Based on "Small Wonders," the 1995 Oscar-nominated documentary about East Harlem violin instructor Roberta Guaspari, Meryl Streep stars as the inspirational violinist/instructor. Angela Bassett is a school principal, and singer-cum-actress Gloria Estefan, an elementary school teacher. The cast also includes Aidan Quinn, Cloris Leachman and Jane Leeves .
