FILLING THE REQUIREMENT THAT SCARLETT JOHANSSON STAR IN AT LEAST ONE MOVIE RELEASED EVERY MONTH THIS YEAR: While the past couple of months have been pretty anemic for movies (obligatory Halloween horror flicks and Hollywood's continuing attempts to make Ashton Kutcher into a movie star), with the exception of joys like The Queen (which is almost as good as the critics say it is) and The Departed, next weekend is incredibly loaded. You have Clint Eastwood's Flags Of Our Fathers and Christopher Nolan's The Prestige both arriving everywhere (along with Flicka, but not even my love for Maria Bello gets me into that one), and Marie Antoinette coming a little less wide. plus Running With Scissors arriving in limited release, Nightmare Before Christmas being re-released in 3D, and acclaimed indies The Queen, The Last King of Scotland, and Shortbus going wider. It's almost enough to make up for the fact that Saw III will assuredly make huge bank the following weekend.
