The Oscar Project
I have to say the best film releasing this weekend is likely one you've seen before. Peter Jackson's 2001 blockbuster The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring lands in a limited IMAX re-release this weekend so now is your chance to see it on the big screen if it's been a while.
Unfortunately, there are no major wide releases this weekend, yet there is plenty of star power hitting theaters and virtual releases including names like Viggo Mortensen (Green Book, The Lord of the Rings), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Event Horizon), Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean, Sleepy Hollow), and Kate Hudson (Almost Famous, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days).
Please support your local cinemas whenever possible as they continue to struggle throughout these difficult times.
