Pick of the Week

12/06/2011 – ‘Cowboys & Aliens,’ ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins,’ ‘The Help’ and ‘The Hangover Part II’

Cowboys & Aliens
Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde star in old-fashioned wild west tale of cowboys, outlaws... and aliens. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. He also quickly discovers that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, but when the town is attacked by marauders from the sky, their only hope is to pull together as a posse of former enemies -- gunslingers, lawmen, townsfolk and Apache warriors -- against a common enemy in an epic showdown for survival.
