New Movies opening this weekend...
A young woman travels to Texas to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-wielding killer is part of the reward.
The Buzz: The Sawyer family legacy has been carved up into separate remakes, prequels, and reboots, but it hasn't stopped Lionsgate from picking up the rights and creating a new movie that explores what the town of Newt, Texas did in the wake of Leatherface's notorious killing spree. Horror fans might feast on the first wide release in some time, so we're thinking the movie might open well even in a week where a couple holiday films expand wide.
A former CIA operative turned political talk show host is hired by a corporate whistle blower to expose her company's cover-up of a massacre in a South American village.
The Buzz: Picture this: Eva Longoria playing a political activist. Has there been a better actress/character pairing since Tara Reid portrayed an anthropologist in Alone in the Dark? In an alternate universe, A Dark Truth is a Ben Affleck movie with Oscar buzz; in this world, the casting alone boggles the mind.
