The pickings are slim the weekend before Thanksgiving weekend, when every movie under the sun will start opening just in time for the holiday rush.

It doesn’t really matter though, because every one will be watching the same movie – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Read on for more!

If you don’t know what it’s about, read the book. Or, read this quick synopsis courtsey of Yahoo! Movies.

Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction — the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.

The only other wide release of the weekend is The Next Three Days starring Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks. This is where the people that couldn’t get tickets to Harry Potter will be.

Here’s  what it’s about:

Life seems perfect for John Brennan until his wife, Lara, is arrested for a gruesome murder she says she didn’t commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately risking everything for the woman he loves.

Want to go all indie? Check out this never heard of before film called Made in Dagenham.

Although far from the Swinging Sixties of Carnaby Street, life for the women of Dagenham, England is tinged with the sounds and sights of the optimistic era, heard on their radios and seen on their TV sets. Rita O’Grady reflects that upbeat era, along with her friends and co-workers at the city’s Ford Motor Factory — Sandra, Eileen, Brenda, Monica and Connie — who laugh in the face of their poor conditions.

Yahoo! Reviewers gave it an A+ so it must be good!

I wish I had more, but there are none!
