Huntington, WV — New Mainstreamers … Will Ferrell , the dude from SNL, “Anchorman” and “Bewitched,” grabs a helmet and jumps into a race car for “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.”

According to viewers at the annual Comic Con, “The Descent” will have astounding word of mouth as a caving expeditions by a group of women goes horribly wrong as they become trapped and pursued by a strange breed of predators.

When Robin Williams as radio talk show host Gabriel Noone reads a harrowing manuscript by Pete Logand (Rory Culkin), he starts questioning the validity of the story and travels from New York to Wisconsin to learn the truth behind “The Night Listener.”

When the farmer’s away, his animals break out into song and dance in “Barnyard: The Original Party Animals.”

Finally, although it opens Aug 9, I’m one of those who can not wait to see Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center.” I hope it lives up to expectations both as a memorial to those who died, those who survived, and offers insight into the efforts of the heroes working at the collapsed towers.

Continuing Art/Festival/Limited Releases …

The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Although squirt guns, rice, lighters, and other projectiles are forbidden, you can brush up on your Time Warp dance and check out those character costumes. The long running and cult favorite returns for a multiple weekend run at the Cinema starting Aug. 4.

You’re welcome to act out the lines and have fun. A ‘shadow cast’ will be coming soon as well as a group of people to welcome first timers to the showing.

(Note: Times and Titles subject to change at discretion of film bookers. Double check websites to verify times or to purchase on line tickets.)

NOTE: Since “World Trade Center” opens on WEDNESDAY, August 9, some of the times in this chart may be good only through Tuesday, August 8, as theatres will open WTC on Wednesday. At Press Time , We Do NOT know what films will be leaving to allow WTC screen(s)
