News is thin this week, but more summer titles are coming home sooner than you think. Two of the worst films of the year and two of the best films of the summer bookend this week's releases. Do you like your good news or bad news, first? We'll start with the bad and get it out of the way.
If you have been following the column the past few weeks, you know that Paramount's Iron Man 2 was first out of the gate to mark its territory in September. Then came word that Disney was going to trump that by coming out two weeks earlier with Prince of Persia, which has been officially confirmed this week. Now, Fox is going two weeks earlier than Bruckheimer and giving us the true dog of the summer.
