Women at the Box Office This Weekend

The date might read September 5 on the calendar but it still feels like summer in a variety of ways. It's been hotter in NY this week than it was all through August, and at the box office, there is one last gasp of mindless summer flicks before we get to more serious fall fare. None of the new releases this weekend look worthy of anyone's money.

In thinking forward towards fall, for those interested in seeing women on screen, the rest of September and October look good with releases like: The Women; Hounddog; The Duchess; The Family That Preys; The Secret Life of Bees; Rachel Getting Married; Towelhead; Happy-Go-Lucky; I've Loved You So Long and Changeling. It slows down in November and December with Twilight; Doubt; Wendy and Lucy and Nothing But the Truth. Other films like The Reader and The Time Traveler's Wife are still jockeying for dates. I'll keep you informed as best as I can. Please let me know if I am missing any releases.
