[Preview]Films opening this weekend:

>> Hit and Runway -- An "odd couple" comedy about an aspiring (if macho) screenwriter and the gay playwright that he collaborates with.

>> Pokemon 3 -- This time, Ash Ketchum, Pikachu and friends discover the realm of the mysterious Unknown Pokemon, who have the power to turn human thoughts and emotions into reality.
